If you haven’t seen it, I have to recommend to you ‘After The Screaming Stops’, the Bros documentary.

Spinal Tap was very good, but to use footballing parlance, Matt and Luke Goss just seemed to want it more.

I pray that there is a fly on the wall documentary being made about the redevelopment of White Hart Lane.

Given Levy’s freakish decision to name an executive suite after himself, perhaps a good working title might be, ‘I, Stadium‘.

Sources close to the club have told the Harry Hotspur blog that the delay in getting the New Destination are likely to rumble on.

Safety critical elements of the build are still in a state of total disrepair; a situation that has not eased despite the project now being many months overdue and many hundreds of millions over budget.

There was a plan to use fire marshals as an interim strategy and it is my understanding that this has been vetoed by the London Fire Brigade.

Additionally, there are newly revealed software issues with the troubled fire safety elements of the ground.

The reason the public are being spoon fed updates, is because that is what the club are getting from the firm working on and off site.

Oh, and whole thing about it looking like a toilet seat from above is now something which the club has under consideration as an issue to be addressed, even if the solution is only a cosmetic one.

The funniest bit however is that there’s a reason the in-stadium camera service has been disrupted.

Urban foxes have been getting in at night and enjoying astroturf suppers.

The full extent off the damage is unknown, but it was significant enough for the club to try and keep out of the public domain.

    So Arthur. Let’s have a look at your mates highlights reel, including sacking a decent bloke who was doing a decent job and telling everyone else before the man himself. That’s class. Letting berbatov go and replacing with an on loan non league player. That’s class. Sacking a chief scout, because he wanted player a or b off a list, and Daniels only starts at f or g. Incidentally the same chap is about to be appointed director of football at Old Trafford, so maybe knows a thing or two. Getting tied to a 15 year kit deal, that’s poor at the moment, and in a decade will be positively shit. A transfer policy that revolves solely around trying to bring someone in who can be turned into a profit the minute a real football club comes in for them. Presiding over us for call it 2 decades and only having a league Cup to show for it. Worst trophy run in our history. Taking money either fraudulently or with absolutely no idea if the venue he charges top dollar to enter is actually gonna be fit to enter. Unless your a fox. And to top it all we are now 636m in debt. For something that we still have no idea when will be completed. I would ask Bob, but he’s busy mate. Not as busy as the electricians in n17 but busy enough.

  • Billy the yid January 18, 2019 at 11:25 pm

    And Arthur I know for a fact rhy have been taken off the procurement books at a very big company that don’t accept crap. And I’ll ask big Bob see if he’s got any walls to build this weekend cis it looks to me that your mate Daniel could do with all the help he can get right now. Get back to you soon

    Very interesting post from Tappaspur yesterday at 21.05pm.on the previous blog if nobody picked up on it.It seems Levy’s missus was responsibly for all the changes to the toilet design.
    If true this is a scandalous abuse of privilege.She must be in line for a huge bonus as well.Just when you think he’s gone as low as possible out comes another gem.

  • Billy the yid January 18, 2019 at 12:11 pm

    On nights this week and have woken to read this. Stsrt wondering if I’m in a recurring levy themed nightmare. This man is to blame for anyone who doesn’t want to believe it, because this was his baby and he was gonna oversee things. To say he’s incompetent is an insult to the word incompetent. He must have had the final say on using a company called tyco, who by what I’ve been told from a mate in the building game are the equivalent of stambouli. This areshole thinks he can do everything on the cheap, fuck everyone around, and as long as uncle Joe gets a new boat everything is great. People need to stop going. Stop giving these thief’s money. Don’t renew season tickets, because we are on an incredibly slippy slope under these bastards, and until you hit them where it hurts, he will not listen to a single word. His ego is far far more important that THFC. To him. Bastard

    • arthurthebold January 18, 2019 at 6:38 pm

      Billy, is your mate big bob, the expert from paddington, well known brickie in that part of the world? Tyco are huge and well respected and one of a small number of companies big enough to handle a project of this size. Is that the arsehole you refer to who thinks he can do everything? I know he makes a mighty fine wall, but he is not well regarded past that.

      • Billy the yid January 18, 2019 at 11:17 pm

        No it’s not Arthur. It’s someone who is involved in the industry and fucked them off because they were shit. Like someone should do with you and your levy loving ways

      • Harry Hotspur January 19, 2019 at 9:34 am

        Tyco’s name is mud amongst those following the build on forums such as Skyscraper.com

  • Nick January 18, 2019 at 11:32 am

    Are the foxes residing in the stadium or got in from outside? A £1.2 billion stadium with no doors ?

  • eddie January 18, 2019 at 11:20 am

    The drip feeding of bad news is typical Levy.I am amazed he didn’t go into politics,they think everyone are idiots and treat them like cunts.The end result being self aggrandisement.

  • Chris January 18, 2019 at 11:20 am

    Sissoko was spotted at the 02 last night limping. Not buying this bullshit that the Fulham game is a tiny bit too soon and will be back for next game.

    • Nick January 18, 2019 at 11:27 am

      Pretty much like his Tottenham career,struggling to get around a shit stadium.

  • PlayitagainSamways January 18, 2019 at 11:05 am

    Primark Philosophy.

    That is our level.

  • Paddio January 18, 2019 at 10:56 am

    Ironic that the stadium has been tagged with the toilet label, it probably stems from the early Design ideas about the stadium and levy saying let’s give the shits something.
    Still can’t believed from start of the season we just didn’t say sorry it’s wembly again this season.

    • eddie January 18, 2019 at 11:10 am

      Because they needed the revenue from full sign up for season tickets.

  • dilly January 18, 2019 at 10:46 am

    On the subject of Foxes we are reportedly linked to Jamie Vardy?
    Unlikely but exploring all options you never know?

    • Cabspur January 18, 2019 at 11:20 am

      No Ray Parlour the pikey looking unt said he would suit spurs or something.

  • Tappaspur January 18, 2019 at 10:38 am

    Tom at Haringey fc was saying “if TOTTENHAM cared so much about the community why wasn’t the borough invited to play the under 21s there. He has a point. Sorry if I’m hogging the mike. Have to speak at a funeral in a few hours. It will be emotional. Dont wanna over think it. We laugh we cry we live we die.

    • Tappaspur January 18, 2019 at 10:44 am

      Why are we here? Is there a stupider question out there! To reproduce and have a laugh? Time for me to jump in the bath! 🙂 I’m getting nervous!

    • Cabspur January 18, 2019 at 11:40 am

      Good luck tappa,sorry for your loss mate.

      • Tappaspur January 18, 2019 at 12:24 pm

        Cheers mate.

  • Accy January 18, 2019 at 9:56 am

    The toilet seat resemblence being addressed is an important one. I wonder what theyre going to do?

    • Harry Hotspur January 18, 2019 at 9:58 am

      My best guess is a knitted cover.

      • Accy January 18, 2019 at 10:00 am

        to go with our knitted players

    • Tappaspur January 18, 2019 at 10:08 am

      They could have made the south stand and the north look the same (plan elevation view) but they never because it would block the natural light (even more) through the walk way and lillywhitehouse. Don’t know why they never squared off the south a bit. The lighting around the stadium and on the lid gonna be amazing. Toilet wont even spring to mind. They can even make it look like its spinning.

      • Tappaspur January 18, 2019 at 10:14 am

        All that stooopid stuff the nfl do at games fire and All the rest of it shooting up around the pitch its ready for all that s h I t too. Up Haringey fc mate. Old school real football fan experience.

            Would love to stick up for the sister. Ive met her a few times. She really aint nice. At least lammy tries to be. Man dem dont like him though. He never gets a shape up in TOTTENHAM or support any of the Caribbean food outlets. “Bounty bwoy” dem call him.

  • Tappaspur January 18, 2019 at 9:23 am

    WTFox. Hope they never had a safe journey back to Holloway! :-).

  • East Stand January 18, 2019 at 9:14 am

    Yeah, like some of us have already pointed out, competitive football will not be kicked in The Shopping Mall this season. Fox barstewards or not…

    • Tappaspur January 18, 2019 at 9:47 am

      No under the lights games will be played there this season. The Dortmund game was never on. When all the test events are over then post test tweaking they’ll only be 4 games left. Levy/mace knew this monster stadium could not be built in the time scale initially given (woz a 2 year joby) and I honestly believe part of the plan was not to buy any players in that window. Levy knew fans wouldn’t be able to handle knowing 2 years at Wembley and no signings in one hit. Imagine the hysteria. The season ticket money. If he didn’t take it people would smell a rat.

  • East Stand January 18, 2019 at 9:12 am

    Seen that Bros thing after someone recommending it, it is very funny and totally Spinal Tap, Kermode reviewed it and said the same. “Rome wasn’t build in a day… but we don’t have as long as Rome had.” Top that! Levyesque even?

    • Harry Hotspur January 18, 2019 at 9:19 am

      I have to confess I’ve watched it a couple of times already. The first time it didn’t quite sink in how dreadful they are. Especially the one with the syrup.

      • East Stand January 18, 2019 at 9:31 am

        If there was ever an example of humans being f**ked by fame, they’re it…

        • Harry Hotspur January 18, 2019 at 9:44 am

          What is brilliant, is that they clearly think they have copious amount of philosophical stuff to gift the world.

          About as insightful as ‘Love Life’ embroidered on a Primark cushion.
