Exclusive: Levy Met With Rose Last Night

Exclusive: Levy Met With Rose Last Night

The aftermath of Danny Rose’s explosive Sun interview has been remarkably civilised. In many respects, it had to be.

Daniel Levy popped round to Danny Rose’s last night to discuss the matter and work out a way forward, if possible.

The club was obviously horrified and it’s not news that Rose has been fined.

There’s something to put out here, to preface this with. Rose isn’t too bright. I know I have a fondness for describing people in this light, but in this instance it’s neither unkind or unfair.

Rose is genuinely mortified as to how this is panned out. He genuinely didn’t envisage things ending up as they did. I believe that he’s been beyond naive.

Having spoken to Gladys at some length, I think this lunacy wasn’t intentional, or at least the boy didn’t set out to destabilise the club.

It also needs to be added at this juncture that The Sun are guilty of inventing the utterly specious nonsense about Rose being greeted with applause at training today. That did not happen.

The truth is he was greeted sheepishly by his teammates who quite rightly didn’t understand where all this had come from. There is no mutinous vibe at Hotspur Way. Repeat, there is noΒ mutinous vibe at Hotspur Way.

Rose is beyond furious The Sun put this garbage out. There was no need and it betrayed any trust.

Levy was calm with Danny last night and simply sought to get to the root of the problem.

It turns out that of course a requested pay rise had been rebuffed and the transfer of Walker had left Rose brooding on the matter.

Instead of talking to Levy or indeed Poch, instead the boy spoke his agent who predictably gave him some abysmal advice. Once The Sun had been introduced to the equation the madness spread like wildfire.

Glad says that Levy has always had a good rapport with Rose. This is was simply insane and very avoidable.

Rose was reminded that he had been promised a review last September in a year’s time – so next bloody month!

Levy also reminded him that the team hadn’t won anything and this would prompt significant bonuses and pay improvements.

Bizarrely Rose’s response to this was ‘I didn’t think you wanted us to win stuff, ‘coz you’d need to double everyone’s money!’

The lad isn’t the shiniest penny in the till drawer.

Look, for now, the bottom line is that Rose is staying.

Rose will see his case reviewed and Levy has had a wake up call. Whether this safeguards us from this or something similar happening again is anyone’s guess.

    This is gold. So many would jump to believe this is fact. Its all sunshine and rainbows at the club. Poch is the second coming (something I’ve managed only on a precious few occasions), the boys are all true believers in β€œthe philosophy” and Dannyboy is the benevolent all seeing and all caring deity leading us to the promised land. Join the cult people!

    I just went from being a satanic force trying to destroy Spurs, to Flat Earther In Chief in one blog post.

    ahhh thanks H… finally clear light on the matter… i can see where rose is coming from though. he must sometimes look at other england nationals like shaw and stones and get frustrated if they are earning 3 or 4 times more than him (yet rose is better)….. pay probably paid a part in walker jogging on too… money is the root of all evil

    Levy and Poch have probably told him “you signed a new improved contract last September and you were happy to do so before being injured for four months and the player you compete with did himself no harm as we collected more points without you.”

    “Stop being a silly little boy, no, stop behaving like a fucking cunt and sort your life out you stupid fat arsed little prick”…

        Gob not gib… fucks sake…

  • Marc August 11, 2017 at 6:58 pm

    This was a calculated move on Rose’s part. Attacking the Manager, Chairman, and the Players is one thing, but when you attack the supporters too; you have no interest in staying at the club. He’s heard that Chelsea and United are looking at him, seen Kyle Walker double his wages at City and he thinks to himself “I want that”. He knew that they’d never sell him and he’s still got four years left on his contract, so he does that interview. Danny Rose is anything but dumb in this instance. He made a smart and calculated move that will ultimately result in his departure from the club. Maybe not this season but definitely next.

  • Enorme Nuez August 11, 2017 at 6:28 pm

    Rose and Walker share the same agents. :0

    Dictatoral styles such as Levys (I assume) lack boundaries. The boundaries are as much as you can push.
    Respect is the keystone odf democratic negotiation. The universal should be respected and negotiation should be with an eye to a win win. At least within reasonable boundaries.
    Power in itself is not respected unto itself. Irs respected relative to the universal.
    Respect begets respect. Its the cornerstone of democracy.
    Respect yourself and otjers.
    I take back the Fuck off comment for its wrong.Levy and Rose are wrong.We need mire respect.

    I’d be happy enough if Rose left for United with Shaw and Β£40m in return.
    Shaw, Rose, Schneiderlin and countless others need to realise it’s Poch that changed them from being just shit to the shit. he did it for Shaw before, he can do it again

    Its not good enough.We need more

      If he can do anything with Sissoko then Poch is a miracle worker.

    Pissed my pants…fair play H, not sure how you get this info from Glad’s as I last heard she was laying dry wall at the new ground but it would certainly calm the situation for us lovable fans…maybe you should sell this scope to the suns rival…youporn…

  • Northstand Nutter August 11, 2017 at 5:14 pm

    Kudos to you H. You could easily have played L’ Affaire Rose in a different way given your well known animus toward our Chairman but you didn’t. Credit where credit is due.

  • John flynn August 11, 2017 at 4:59 pm

    Funny you asked yesterday to name a situation where rose stays..now you have it.

    Hopefully it’s all a storm in a teacup and by the time he makes his return from injury all is forgotten .would be interested to know if they spoke about transfers now that Danny has nominated himself as the clubs spokesman on the matter

    • McG ⚽⚽ August 11, 2017 at 5:02 pm

      I would say so, especially they way he’s piped down.

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 11, 2017 at 5:05 pm

      Its strange cos it seemed rose was the one who had the trouble forgetting. All that fan talk. He’ll go sooner rather than later I expect.

    I reckon his his agent takes all the credit for this debacle he will be ok with his free corporate ticket at Wembley smiling away ,,,,,,,,Ing sad sack he knew exactly the repercussions of the interview is he trying to influence levy with player purchases from his contacts ,

    • Wills August 11, 2017 at 5:02 pm

      I guess everybody connected to Spur is astill frustrated as Danny with the low wage that is preventing us from buying quality and subsequently causing our players to start thinking out the door.
      I can only hope this will push Levy to think otherwise.
      It should be a wake up call.

      Good of Daniel to clear the air, at least now the players know that if they win the League they will be paid on a par with their competition, get it in writing lads.

      Levy’s reaction…

    So w Wanyama not mentioned in the the team news, is he fit? And Son good to go?

  • pj d August 11, 2017 at 3:53 pm

    You could tell in the interview that he had been goaded or coached to go down certain routes.
    he should be benched once fit! Davis holds the shirt, until he can prove he is better player in the development squad, thats where he should stay. muppet or not.

  • Lilywhite August 11, 2017 at 3:42 pm

    This is good news. My first assumption was that in damage control mode, Levy got tough – told him if he tries to angle publicly for a move, he’d rot in the reserves and hurt himself in the long run, which of course, would hurt us on the pitch. This is much better, although hard to imagine he’d do such an interview w/o realizing the ramifications.

  • Ronan August 11, 2017 at 3:36 pm

    Rose’s response to this was β€˜I didn’t think you wanted us to win stuff, β€˜coz you’d need to double everyone’s money”

    Blimey. Most would pause before including that in a rant in the pub, let alone saying it to Levy’s face, as an employee. Did the source say what Levy’s reaction was?

    • Harry Hotspur August 11, 2017 at 3:59 pm

      I believe this was the point Mr Levy realised that he was dealing with a bonafide dumb dumb.

      • Ronan August 11, 2017 at 4:45 pm

        Levy must have been knocked sideways by that suggestion, unless he sometimes clicks on this site. Sounds like the other Danny has been dipping in from time to time!

  • Cptcaveman August 11, 2017 at 3:33 pm

    Never believed that poop able bring applauded by the dressing room anyway, what absolute tosh. As Poch said, they are on different plans… he might see him tidy today or tomorrow. This has been a papers wet dream and how they love to try to destabilise the might cocks!! Still, let’s not forget, had we signed a few players…bla bla bla… you know the rhetoric.

        Why would any of ours leave us for Liverpool?

        • JuandeInternational August 11, 2017 at 3:39 pm

          They are attempting to achieve the same level as we are, we are slightly ahead of them, but they were one team that handed our arses to us last season (twice) and they’d pay more than we do.

          • RumpleSPURTSkin πŸ’‹ August 11, 2017 at 3:42 pm

            Money aside, I don’t think a move to Liverpool represents progression in the way it used to.

            • JuandeInternational August 11, 2017 at 3:48 pm

              I didn’t say he’d go, but equally it doesn’t stop them making offers and enquires and right now it would just be nice to get to the end of the window without any other clubs sniffing around our first eleven.

    Thanks for that H, makes a lot of sense.

    An injured player with time on his hands adding 2 and 2. An agent advising action that is in the agent’s interest.

    And a footballer that really does appear as dumb as you say. “I open my heart to a newspaper and then they go and print it at a time of their choosing and I really didn’t expect it.”

    Thanks for the insight, i agree great blogging. Suffice to say that Rose has had a stark reminder about the powers of the media to have the adverse effect of what he was intending. Players wages are not comparable to City just yet but bonuses and achievement milestones will make up the difference as incentives.

  • danspurs August 11, 2017 at 3:07 pm

    This is truly great blogging, H. But what I really want to know is whether Levy took any samples of cheese from the cheese room with him when he went to see Rose?

      Levy always grates

      I think a Spurs branded kaleidoscope would be enough to distract him from his unrest

  • TopOfThePochs August 11, 2017 at 3:06 pm

    Poch said when asked about signings that he wants one for each line – defence, midfield and attacking.

    Barkley
    Some-right-back
    Gazzinga
    Mahrez – last minute buy

    Thats my guess that’ll probably be way out.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 11, 2017 at 3:04 pm

    So the chairman has negotiated the good ship Tottenham through this stormy period. 48 hours ago he was clinging to positive public opinion for dear life, this little episode has seen him come out looking suddenly tip top. Anyone who wants to put them pieces together they are welcome. Its all happened so quick? they gasp😨

    • Jim,Newry Spur. August 11, 2017 at 4:15 pm

      For a man who wants to win something, Levy does a very good impression of a man who doesn’t want to win things, ie investment in the team in January windows. This is news to me.

  • Gary M August 11, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    Rose maybe a thick thunk H, however I would loved to have seen Levy’s face if Danny boy really did accuse him of not wanting to win stuff…sartorial elegance at it’s most profound.

  • Al August 11, 2017 at 2:56 pm

    Gawd, the feel good factor has returned to my pants after reading this. Also, the team news suggests Wanyama and Son are fit? Could it be so?

  • Bruce Rioch August 11, 2017 at 2:51 pm

    Dear Mr. Rose,

    one of the advantages of being a highly paid human is that you are able to retain the services of professional representatives. These representatives are employed to negotiate the best possible salary for you based on your talents, worth and the market place. You know this, as you used the services of such professionals last year when you negotiated a new 5 year contract which I assume you signed after you took their advice rather than because Mr. Levy held a firearm to your head.

    Now I can understand your frustration if you now feel that you were badly advised by your professional representatives and also that you feel a little bit of a silly billy for agreeing to the new contract when you knew that you would want more a few minutes later. If this is the case, can I advise that you give an interview to a national newspaper that explains why your representatives sold you short and deserve to be fired and why you are going to reflect on your own role in getting here. Please, under no circumstances, give your representatives and yourself a “get out of jail” free card by blaming your employer for your victim mentality.

    Humbly Yours,
    Bruce

    Poch says he hasn’t spoken to Rose yet, so does that mean Poch wasn’t at training either this morning? Something don’t quite stack up. This don’t make much sense either: “Rose is beyond furious The Sun put this garbage out. There was no need and it betrayed any trust”. I got told I was making stuff up, & now it’s the Sun making stuff up, I knew they were.

    • RumpleSPURTSkin πŸ’‹ August 11, 2017 at 2:39 pm

      No. Poch said they were in a different dynamic. Rose isn’t training with the 1st team squad because he’s recovering.

      • McG ⚽⚽ August 11, 2017 at 2:44 pm

        But he apparently greeted the players, with Poch not being there was my point. Sun talkin total bollox.

              • Harry Hotspur August 11, 2017 at 2:52 pm

                It also needs to be added at this juncture that The Sun are guilty of inventing the utterly specious nonsense about Rose being greeted with applause at training today. That did not happen.

                The truth is he was greeted sheepishly by his teammates who quite rightly didn’t understand where all this had come from.

                • Jim,Newry Spur. August 11, 2017 at 4:23 pm

  • TopOfThePochs August 11, 2017 at 2:27 pm

    This is most welcome news.
    Let hope that this has indeed given Levy a nudge that he is walking the tightrope with a bit too much slack.
    He needs to tighten up his focus on were we actually are, at the crossroads.
    I envisage us now signing the 3-4 payer Poch says he requires and Rose is pictured come October with a new contract once the dust has settled.

    We’ve seen players getting ‘upgrades’ on there terms yearly, in some cases a couple f times a year.
    The neared we get to the New stadium and the revenues the better the deals – provided the team is performing too.

    I’d wager that part of the reason our team has been so motivated is because they have very lucrative performance bonuses on top of their basic wage.

    Haven’t read such a positive piece on here for a while. A nice read in these dark times. I’m just terrified that a return to the bad old days is on the cards. Levy has lucked onto the best team we’ve had in decades and suddenly I’m feeling AVB/Sherwood. And not in a kin ky way.

    • Simon Gibbs August 11, 2017 at 2:46 pm

      I think it’s a bit unfair to say that Levy has lucked into the current team. We have been on an upward spiral as a club and a team since Levy took the reigns. We all know he’s a frustrating Chairman but we have progressed from mid table, to top 6, to top 4 without getting into huge debt. We have one of the best training facilities in Europe and will soon have one of the best stadiums too. Appreciate though that this is very much a crossroads for the club and the decisions made over the next few weeks could define how much further we can go over the next few years.

  • Freund or Foe August 11, 2017 at 2:25 pm

    Bizarrely Rose’s response to this was β€˜I didn’t think you wanted us to win stuff, β€˜coz you’d need to double everyone’s money!’

        • RumpleSPURTSkin πŸ’‹ August 11, 2017 at 2:27 pm

          Hehehe.

        • Freund or Foe August 11, 2017 at 2:29 pm

          It had the required effect. Nearly twice.

        • Dusty August 11, 2017 at 3:01 pm

          And I guess they both ROSE to the occasion. πŸ™‚

      • Freund or Foe August 11, 2017 at 2:28 pm

        Don`t worry, the force is strong in me.

        • Horndog August 11, 2017 at 2:29 pm

          As is your load. πŸ˜‚

          • Freund or Foe August 11, 2017 at 2:31 pm

            If I get my angles right, I can hit a Coke can from 100 yards.

            • RumpleSPURTSkin πŸ’‹ August 11, 2017 at 2:36 pm

              I couldn’t hit a hundred Coke cans from a yard.

          • Harry Hotspur August 11, 2017 at 2:38 pm

            Hahahahaha

  • Yiddo August 11, 2017 at 2:18 pm

    What did he think was going to happen, speaking to those apocryphal fuckers?

  • Spurs84 August 11, 2017 at 2:17 pm

    Rose is a rude bell end, cut from the same cloth as Aaron Lennon. He knew exactly what he’s doing and is agitating for a move to Man Utd. If he wasn’t mustard, I’d say foxtrot Oscar this arvo.

  • Freund or Foe August 11, 2017 at 2:15 pm

    Great work captain. I`m glad Levy dealt with it in a much professional way than I would have.

  • Caspurs♿️ August 11, 2017 at 2:15 pm

    Good news, and further hi lights the need for reform regarding agents in football.

    • Harry Hotspur August 11, 2017 at 2:17 pm

      Agents are so fakin substandard it beggars belief.

  • RumpleSPURTSkin πŸ’‹ August 11, 2017 at 2:15 pm

    If all the above is true then I’m happy. I’ve always liked Rose the player; no one is more committed than he. It sounds like both Levy and Poch have managed a potentially disastrous situation rather well, even if more could have been done to avoid it in the first place.

    The Sun should be banned from all Spurs’ premises.

    • Harry Hotspur August 11, 2017 at 2:16 pm

      100% true. I even included the stuff that put Baldy in a good light.

    • Camus August 11, 2017 at 2:17 pm

      Agreed. The worry is that now they have smelt blood they will try to get to Dier, Alli and co via agents by next summer. We need to close ranks.

  • RedcarSpur August 11, 2017 at 2:14 pm

    Phew! Let’s hope this has the desired effect on Dan the man.

  • Camus August 11, 2017 at 2:13 pm

    H with the scoop!
    Interesting stuff indeed.

  • Sid Trotter August 11, 2017 at 2:11 pm

    So mountain of a rather dim molehill. I’m just happy Wanyama is available for Sunday!

    • Caspurs♿️ August 11, 2017 at 2:13 pm

      Or will the Sun run another exclusive tonight on Wanyama???

  • RumpleSPURTSkin πŸ’‹ August 11, 2017 at 2:10 pm

    Excellent piece, H-Bomb.

  • Caspurs♿️ August 11, 2017 at 2:09 pm

    Was it in a romantic setting?

    • Harry Hotspur August 11, 2017 at 2:18 pm

      I am told that Levy arrived with chilled wine and warmed muscle relaxant
