Ossie’s knees aren’t the only ones that are trembly.
Gladys, the world’s most promiscuous tea lady has been in touch and tells me the bald one is harbouring doubts over playing an entire season at Wembley.
Which explains why Poch recently received a change of plan order from the boardroom.
The Champions League games at Wembley were an unmitigated disaster. The one game we did win was meaningless to our opponents.
Tickets for the upcoming Gent game have been so discounted so drastically, it’s cheaper to go and watch Spurs at Wembley than it is to buy a ticket for its stadium tour.
Levy has told Poch to force the issue in both the FA Cup and the Europa in order to force the team into getting as much game time at Wembley as possible.
Another factor at play here is that Levy is beyond angry that a supposed £30million asset – namely Erik Lamela – has been MIA for months on end and yet he’s not sporting so much as an Elastoplast.
Our chairman has made it clear to Poch that he is expecting to a better return from players, especially in light of the recent flurry of extended contracts. Sympathy for this ‘being a bit pooped’ routine after playing one game a week has pretty much run its course now.
Wembley needs to be properly road tested because in simple terms, once the deal is signed, that’s it. Wembley won’t except a break clause and we’d look utterly ridiculous if we had one and exercised it.
Glad has no idea what the other options might be if Spurs continue to flatline at Wembley, but the list is a a short one.
The bottom line is that Levy knows that giving tickets away for Wembley indefinitely is not a plan, nor will it address the quality of the performances.
If Spurs fail to make a positive impact in the forthcoming cup games, a Wembley u-turn is well on the cards.
