The Times are running with an interesting piece this morning, suggesting that our old friend Daniel Levy is now facing yet another consequence of his ineptitude.
Tottenham had scheduled test events for successive Sundays on December 30 and January 6 but the first date is proving problematic because of a shortage of staff and police resources in the build-up to the new year. The London derby between Crystal Palace and Chelsea taking place that day is already stretching Metropolitan Police and it is understood that Tottenham have altered their plans.The Times
A source close to the club told the Harry Hotspur blog this morning that the chances of the events going ahead as planned are ‘at best 50/50’.
Additionally that there are still extensive internal works that need addressing.
In what appears all too symptomatic of Levy’s overall approach, the club are now literally ‘making it up as they go along’ in respect of the final furlongs before the stadium is fit to open.
The chaos behind the scenes has left the project at odds with the real world.
Trying to shoehorn test events into a busy footballing period, some 4 months since they were supposed to take place has left the THFC now relying upon the kindness of strangers ion order to get the build over the finish line.
Still without a naming rights deal, shirt sponsorships mortgaged for the next 20 years, and games at Wembley continuing to haemorrhage money, it’s difficult to image how Levy could have made a bigger mess of matters.
