Much has been made of the Joe Lewis flying in from the Bahamas business.
To either gently explain to Mauricio Pochettino why the club’s strategy cannot be adjusted, or to ask him for more guidance so the changes can be implemented in the most efficient manner.
Gladys understands that this visit, indeed any visit for that matter is purely standard procedure and has zero bearing on the latest developments.
Levy is the CEO, not the caretaker who locks up when everyone goes home at night.
The required adjustments are well within his gift.
The back pages have invented for their own convenience a cartoon view of the world whereby great men need to see the whites of their opponents eyes and ‘war chests’ are actually wooden in construction and packed with genuine doubloons and assorted jewels.
Thankfully the world isn’t like this Walt Disney representation.
What in fact Pochettino desires is NOT a war chest.
So the spurious misrepresentation by several newspapers trying to conflate the monies raised by selling Rose, Alderweireld and Mousa etc and this made up number of £150million ought be ignored.
This is some hack timing 3 by 50 and hoping for the best.
A dull child could tell you that to sell 3 players and then have enough to buy 3 more is not what Poch is angling for.
That’s what we’ve been doing and it is a very limited formula.
Glad believes that the second wave of Poch’s project is far more nuanced, far more intelligent.
What he is seeking is to have our willingness to negotiate enhanced, so he doesn’t have to suffer muck like Sissoko because he was affordable on one of Levy’s drawn out hire purchase schemes.
Poch doesn’t want second or third choices, his aim is to buy quality and buy once.
Whilst Levy’s business acumen is admirable, making the odd few quid on shuffling about deadbeats such as No’Cluedo, the football is not benefiting.
Those rejoicing our third place finish are missing the point – Poch’s position is much sharper – this was despite the tools he had to work with.
Fans must surely be able to grasp that there many stop on the line between ‘monk’ and ‘drunken lottery winner’.
I won’t hold my breath…
Lewis is unlikely to override Levy, their relationship is unshakable.
Levy won’t do anything daft.
Poch only wishes to do what is required, what is sensible.
Villas-Boas wanted to do the same by the way, but his papers were not in order.
Pochettino’s credentials are now impeccable.
