Gladys believes that Naming Rights negotiations for the New Destination™ have been a car crash.

Our illustrious leader initially hired sponsorship specialists TRM, but then lost patience and guess what?

Yup, he edecided he would micro manage it all himself.

Levy reportedly wanted a deal worth £20m per year for 20 years.

Hewlett Packard have a longstanding relationship with Tottenham Hotspur.

The American company’s branding previously adorned the north London club’s playing strip between 1995 and 1999.

In 2003 HP were back on the shirt again, stepping in to take up the slack on AIA’s first deal which included the FA Cup, Capital One Cup and Europa League games, while HP will retained sponsorship of the Spurs’s Premier League match shirts.

Glad understands that Hewlett Packard are currently in pole position and unless something seismic happens, it will be their name in lights.

Additionally AIA have graciously declined to bid on the naming rights and are said to be extremely happy with the bang they are getting for their current marketing buck.

There is also the small matter of AIA’s existing presence in the Premier League courtesy of the AIA Vitality Stadium at Bournemouth.

Returning to Hewlett Packard would smack of calling the ex in your phonebook that would probably be agreeable to you popping round with a bottle of wine at short notice.

Given Levy’s penchant for payment plans the Hire Purchase Arena would be fitting.

    Morning fellow lilywhites.

    Chelsea are the only other top four contenders who have yet to sign anyone. And that’s because they were changing manager.

    No such excuse for Spurs, or should I say Daniel, because I have no doubt that Pochettino is pulling his hair out waiting for some action to land his targets.

      Nick it was a missed opportunity not winning the WC but both Southgate and the whole team / squad / coaching staff deserve plenty of plaudits for exceeding low expectations, connecting to the fans, uniting the nation and bringing smiles back to peoples faces when speaking from experience the winning jubilation watching all the England matches at the Solihull Walkabout was amazing.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JVKL3JIUwo

    Dilly I think from this he looks half decent. It’s entirely possible I…

    a) resent shopping in the championship when we’ve just spent a billion on a stadium which, apparently has nothing to do with the transfer budget

    b) resent haggling over sheckles to bring him in whilst other clubs are doing more timely business

    c) resent not having gone for Maddison if we were after a homegrown championship talent – the superior player (check the stats)

    d) resent our recent past transfer dealings one heck of a lot when all that was needed was a bit of cash spent on a couple of quality additions to kick on when we’ve been close to the top of the table/deep runs in competitions…

    …more than i do Grealish himself. I’ll give him a good two matches before judging him too harshly.

  • East Stand July 12, 2018 at 11:03 pm

    Finding these anti- Trump protests as immature.

    The best thing to do is ignore people you don’t like. Trouble is, these people need a hate figure to function, somebody who embodies all they dislike about the world. An presence that justifies their world view.

    I personally don’t like Trump being US president because he’s only out for himself.

    The thing I find puzzling is that he has never said anything or done anything racist so far. He’s never said anything homophobic either (Serge Aurier has).

    He hasn’t said anything sexist apart from that recording from 10 years ago.

    He MIGHT be racist, homophobic and a terrible sexist but so MIGHT anyone.

    Just because he’s anti immigration and doesn’t use the slick talk of experienced politicians to make his point does not make him ‘racist’.

    I find the anti Trump marches as juvenile and embarrassing. It’s Trump, I couldn’t give a fuck. There are bigger problems in the world ffs.

    The ignorant twat denies human influence on climate change, I totally disagree (plus it’s scientifically proven).

    However, I don’t find the need to make myself feel better and pretend I’m actually doing something by going on an anti Trump march.

    I cannot understand the mindset of someone who does. It’s pathetic…

    • Sid Trotter July 12, 2018 at 11:18 pm

      • East Stand July 12, 2018 at 11:38 pm

        What evidence do you have that he’s a ‘white supremacist’?

        His god is money and just because he’s anti immigration, white very wealthy and privileged does not make him a ‘white supremacist’.

        Would a white supremacist be giving his Jewish son in law a top job in his government?

        Yes he’s an ignorant, arrogant and unpleasant man but much of what he’s accused of is either rumour or making assumptions.

        I don’t like him myself but I refuse to be swept along by the liberal mafia on this.

        He’s bad for the world overall and I wish he’d resign but love him or loath him there are a lot double standards going on…

        Why for a change it was an excellent debating forum perfectly illustrating why the retiring assertive David Dimbleby will be a hard act to follow!

        • Gloster1861 July 12, 2018 at 11:55 pm

          I doubt it. I’ve got sick of him in recent years. I think it’s because his own bias and opinions have come strongly to the fore. He is such an obvious Remainer himself (I believe David Dimbleby is a staunch Lib Dem).

          Interestingly, he attended private schools in Surrey, including Charterhouse, and studied at Oxford,struggling to graduate with a third-class degree. They give you a third at Oxbridge if you can remember your own name, basically. He joined the notorious Bullingdon Club, many years before David Cameron’s membership brought the elite drinking fraternity to the attention of the wider public.

          You can’t get much more public school than the Bullingdon. Emerging from the best education his father’s money could buy with a third suggests that Dimbleby is indeed not the brightest light in the studio. Therefore his employment by the BBC is highly suspect.

          Good riddance to an establishment figure.

          • Gloster1861 July 13, 2018 at 12:11 am

            Rolling in money, Richard Dimbleby owned a large (and I mean large) house not near Barnes Common, but in the middle of it, surrounded by a high brick wall. Very salubrious. I walked past it many times, and everyone knew they entertained the high and mighty of the day. It’s served David and Jonathan well, because it’s not what you know, but who you know, and growing up they knew everyone who counted.

    About Tottenham Hotspur Football Club
    Founded in 1882, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has a tradition of playing an entertaining and attacking style of football. The team has achieved five top five Premier League finishes in the past seven seasons and has a multi-national squad of players. Tottenham Hotspur also has:
    • A global following in excess of 400 million, with strong supporter bases across the UK, the USA, China, Asia and Southern Africa, including more than 100 Official Supporters Clubs worldwide.

    In excess of 400m? That’s 5.33% of the world’s population who support Tottenham Hotspur according to this!

    Over four hundred million followers?

    Maybe we can interest the Mormons or Jehovah’s Witnesses to sponsor the stadium?

    (The bit about the multi-national squad. Does anyone know if there is a single team in the PL or the Championship which doesn’t fit this description? And probably the other leagues too.)

Always thought Dele looked better early on in centre mid. Seems he’s lost the grit and involvement he used to bring to matches. Too famous for too little too soon. Ruiner of development.

      Always had a soft spot for Chris Evert -LLoyd!

    • Accy July 12, 2018 at 3:55 pm

      She’s so boring.

      Very good, she’s a working mother who wins stuff. But winning everything in sight for 15 years straight is a little wearing.

      • Accy July 12, 2018 at 3:58 pm

        Djokovic is another boring one.

        Federer making a fist of it in his twilight years is quite admirable.

    • Gloster1861 July 12, 2018 at 5:00 pm

      Agreed. I’ve looked at her briefly this week and she appears to be a different species to the human competitors. I think she has been a gene splicing experiment.

    I suspected HP when I saw the “ connected stadium” advert on tv.I didn’t think they have the financial clout that levy is looking for but then I didn’t envisage that we would be short of offers

    In case it escaped anybody DT and his wife are in town where they will attend a dinner, hosted by Mrs May, at Blenheim Palace – the ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill – in the evening. According to the BBC Mrs May said the UK visit would be an opportunity to boost trade links and strengthen co-operation on security.
    Located in Woodstock myself and Joyce have visited splendid Blenheim Palace on several occasions in the past which is magnifique!

    • TopOfThePochs July 12, 2018 at 3:40 pm

      When will they be visiting Jonjo Shelvey, and if not why not?!

      • dilly July 12, 2018 at 3:43 pm

        Sadly it’s unlikely that DT has ever heard of Jonjo Shelvey!- probably think he is a yuge rock musician!!

    • Harry Hotspur July 12, 2018 at 3:49 pm

      I hope this visit isn’t tarnished by your ‘Joyce & Dilly Snuggled Here’ graffiti on the lav wall!

  • Accy July 12, 2018 at 3:28 pm

    £20m x 20 years = £400m

    So the other half must be coming from…

    • TopOfThePochs July 12, 2018 at 3:42 pm

      The cheese room…

      gonna make a killing on babybels and dairy lea dunkers.

      • Accy July 12, 2018 at 3:43 pm

        If they don’t have Primula Squeezy Cheese I’m not going.

    It’s not the AIA Vitality Stadium. It’s just the Vitality stadium. Vitality are 100% independent from AIA, they just happen to be partners in Asia (much as they used to be partners with Prudential in the UK until that relationship ended. So apart from an incidental connection whih will be barely perceived even in the markets AIA operate, they get zero benefit from the naming of Bournemouth’s Stadium, which is sponsored by the UK arm of Vitality known as Vitality Health.

    • Harry Hotspur July 12, 2018 at 3:47 pm

      they just happen to be partners in Asia

      All I was doing was relaying this.

      Perhaps you wish to contact AIA directly and ask them wtf they are playing at, making excuses?

  • Mattspurs July 12, 2018 at 3:10 pm

    Barclays
    Qatar Airways
