Gladys has just returned from a Tea Urn ExPo in sun-kissed Gstaad where she rubbed shoulders (among other things) with some of the highest high rollers in the finance world. One chap she spoke to had just a few weeks previously set up a meeting between a client and a man by the name of Joe Lewis.

Glad asked him how much ENIC wanted for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, and ‘was it £2billion?!’

The reply was: “Not quite, but it was close enough to the number that the client had in his mind before they met.”

What this tells us that yes there is a ‘magic number’ and yes, it is for sale. A cynic would leap in at this point of course and tell us all that everything has its price, but what is new here is that it means that there is hope. Levy isn’t absolutely destined to shuffle off this mortal coil wearing a poly-mix suit with a Chicken Badge on the chest pocket.

There is hope. That someone who might want to build a football team could still take over.

Another snippet from that boat trip was that AIA could potentially going to be involved for some time. They looked at a few London clubs before finally deciding on Spurs and feel they made a very  good choice. However one amusing anecdote shared was that despite a blossoming relationship between the club and the sponsor, our chairman had stood firm and AIA were still only allowed the one complimentary box as part of the package. Numerous gentle overtures had fallen upon stoney ground.

      Spot on. How long’s it gone on for now too? They’ll probably pinch today still but Elneny not starting fairly regularly and being awarded a new contract, neartly sums up the level their squad has gone down remarkably quickly. Chambers! Ospina. Ozil on 350k per week. Lovely, lovely stuff.

      A quick word on their fans. Nil nil at half time and they boo. Jesus, why even go. You know they’re shite. Don’t act surprised.

    Sheik Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Manchester City owner, and Nasser Al-Khelaifi, PSG president, are not included in the list of the richest soccer club owners because Forbes does not value families or royal fortunes unless we can clearly see who owns the fortunes. For instance, the Qatari royal family is not on our list.

    The whole business model of professional football is based on tv revenue.Tv is changing & who knows at what point the money stops?

        • Lilywhite without the ll April 1, 2018 at 1:13 pm

          assume we are discussing owning a football club, having a cheese room first, trophies second (yet to be confirmed) is not success for fans..I can spend the day at The Savoy if I want posh cheese..

          • Ronwol1960-61 April 1, 2018 at 1:22 pm

            So you are saying there is no quality football being played at Tottenham when the world has been talking about the quality of Tottenhams football and you are talking about cheese

        • Harry Hotspur April 1, 2018 at 1:27 pm

          Ron you’re always quick to leap to Joe’s defense. You do realise that his utter meanness has prevented Spurs being as successful as City and Chelse and he would have had his money back by now plus an outlandish return?

          Of course that wouldn’t have happened with Levy as CEO because, that stupid **** doesn’t understand how to run a football club.

          • Ronwol1960-61 April 1, 2018 at 1:30 pm

            Meanness??? Its his nickel. He has brought some of the best football we have seen in years to Tottenham. Really whats the point. We could have done better and we could have done worse. There are no guarantees.

            • Harry Hotspur April 1, 2018 at 1:33 pm

              If he was never going to spend he should have fucked off and haunted someone else’s club, not mine.

              This is a money game and was so a decade before these time-wasters got involved.

              Some of the best? Compared to what?!!! The 60s – no. The 80s – no.

    Can’t see ENIC getting even half that figure for Spurs. Two billion is about ten times what Abu Dhabi paid for City, and they’ve had to spend another billion or so on players in order to achieve domination.

    • Caspurs♿️ April 1, 2018 at 1:02 pm

      They bought citeh 10 yrs ago, plus they were shite with very little incoming revenue hence the price. Whether £2b is a fair price or not, the big English clubs probably are worth stupid money these days.

      • Ronan April 1, 2018 at 1:08 pm

        But that’s the problem. Nobody’s going to pay ENIC two billion, and then shell out another billion or so on players – even if the rules still permitted spending that much on players. I suspect it’s going to be ENIC forever.

  • Nick April 1, 2018 at 12:47 pm

    If you had a spare £2bn knocking about,look at the options available even in the Premier league.Newcastle up for sale,huge fan base huge potential £400m. I know which one I’d choose £1.6bn change

    The pressure is on the chavs. They will try and Bully us and the officials, as they usually do when they need to win. I would love to stuff them ,but a draw would do us.
    If Kane was to play by some miracle, they will give him a whack ,they will injure his ankle no doubt.
    They are an evil little club, we need to be clever and ruthless against them.

    • gloster1861 April 1, 2018 at 12:51 pm

      They are appalling.

  • Andrew April 1, 2018 at 12:34 pm

    The near 2 billion will be paid to enic ,who in turn will pay off the dept. I don’t think the dept is more than about £750/850 mill . That would leave a cool 750mill (maybe more) profit. I’m sure enic have already put money into the purchases of land etc.
    Graham Roberts said in talkshite radio a while ago that the stadium cost is about £450 mill and the rest of the project about £490 mill. I presume he has spoken to someone itk at the club.

    • gloster1861 April 1, 2018 at 12:45 pm

      No. The land was been bought over the years with the TV money that was never spent on transfers or wages. Not a penny piece has been forthcoming from ENIC. The 2 billion dollars or whatever will all be profit, less the 20 million they paid for the shares.

      • Ronwol1960-61 April 1, 2018 at 12:54 pm

        So? Where are we in the league? and what about the manager that Levy signed who everyone wants.

        If its so easy why dont more people get into that business???

        • gloster1861 April 1, 2018 at 12:58 pm

          I was simply pointing out ENIC haven’t invested any money, it’s all been a slow, grindingly slow, build over 17 years, and all done internally with no seedcorn investment like Chelsea have had, or strikingly City have had. Look where City are Ronwol. Higher, more successful, andcdone in half the time.

          Compare and contrast.

          • Ronwol1960-61 April 1, 2018 at 1:03 pm

            People are no different. Some people save every penny are safe in their investments,others blow it down the pub.Some speculate over their means and win and some lose.
            I would consider Joe Lewis brilliant to make what he has and still carry on. It could be better but it could also be worse for Tottenham

            • Lilywhite without the ll April 1, 2018 at 1:06 pm

              In business yes, but this is all about winning….to me (Us) it is anyway..maybe the next generation accept that its a business and expectation will differ…then it becomes about “entertain me”, “I’ve paid my money”…then theres a different type of complaining….

              • Ronwol1960-61 April 1, 2018 at 1:17 pm

                The market will talk. If the only thing that fans care about is winning then not too many will go if we are not winning.
                The intention is to win.But they will not purely buy success. because they havemt but to keep the fans happy they will have to go to the next level.There is no other way

          • SpurAndy 🍒π April 1, 2018 at 1:09 pm

            Citeh are run by Arabs who’s philosophy is about raising the brand of their country. They’re not bothered abiut losing money. If Citeh went bust they wouldn’t blink an eyelid other than the embarrassment factor. Abramovich is in it to launder money and use it as a play toy. Enic are in it as an investment vehicle to make money. Like any investment a large proportion of profit would come from how successful the product is when they sell up.

          the law of averages Ron, at some point everything lines together (in our case 18years)…Poch and a few cheap players (Alli, Dier etc) including academy players have alined to make us a good team…once that starts to dismantle do you think they will replace them like-for-like as that will require spending wages, unless we get lucky abroad…

          • Ronwol1960-61 April 1, 2018 at 1:05 pm

            I think if they dont fill the stadium,they will lose or have to sell.
            They have to have product.

          Ron, you seem to be standing up for Levy, come what may. ENIC are an investment company who have ignored the ‘winning’ primary purpose of a football club, MY FOOTBALL CLUB in order to make money. They have only invested in players in a very minimal way in order to have a zero net spend. They will walk away with a handsome profit but they have wasted 17 years of my life by fannying about making money their god come hell or high water. They have sold our best players, simply because they wouldn’t pay the going rate and are still doing it. I have no time for ENIC, Daniel Levy or Joe Lewis. They are the worst kind of owners a football could have.

          • SpurAndy 🍒π April 1, 2018 at 1:12 pm

    In honour of Tottenham Ive put a cheese room in the den. Its not very big but I wanted to capture the feeling of the new stadium. I have some wonderful vintage cheeses. Kraft Cheese slices circa 1962 is my prize. They used to make then without wrappers around each particular one and 3 times to size (Today the plastic and the cheese are made out of the same base material) No this is real smelly cheese with all the bacteria you will ever need. On one half of the slice Ive got the good bacteria wearing yellowing white shirts and on the other Ive got bad bacteria (I mean its almost Roquefort for all its blue).
