Tottenham Hotspur

THFC Is Not For Sale – Despite this…

THFC Is Not For Sale – Despite this…

This from today’s Sunday Times ‘Business and Money’ supplement (£).

A secretive American investment firm backed by Mark Zuckerberg is considering a £1bn bid for Tottenham Hotspur.

Iconiq Capital has held talks with a number of buyout firms about a possible bid for the north London club, which came second in the Premier League last season.

They were prepared to pay £882.6m but was rejected by Joe Lewis, the clubs billionaire owner. He is understood to be holding out for £2bn.

Several other parties have expressed an interest in buying Spurs in recent years, including the US investment company Cain Hoy”. 

At the risk of being the bearer or bad news, ENIC won’t be selling anytime soon.

The £2billion suggested in the Times piece above is complete conjecture. Gladys knows and Gladys tells me that Levy has no motivation to leave whatsoever. I’m not entirely sure at this stage what is in the public domain and so I shall err on the side of caution here in respect of what’s shared.

    With Siggy off to the Toffees it looks like Barkley or bust for us. If he comes though, prepare yourselves for lots of beer cans thrown at the wall in your living room. Very frustrating player. “Just think of what Poch could do with him…” Yeah, like he did with Sissoko last season…? You can’t polish a turd.

      • Harry Hotspur July 10, 2017 at 7:52 am

        We should put Lee in charge of transfers.

    • Sexy Beast July 10, 2017 at 7:18 am

      There is a player in there it will be all about him taking instruction on board, we will get him cheap so would get our money back if he doesn’t listen. It will take 6/12 months before he properly beds in and therefore it doesn’t matter that much if he signs this week or end of the transfer window……

    Chairmans log: early day 10. Unable to sleep as there is someone outside yelling something about the yellow tottenham kit. Building security have been notified. Informed by staff that large proportion of spurs supporters are happy the squad is strong enough to compete on all fronts in the coming season. I am therefore confident I will negotiate this window and perhaps the next one without spending a penny. Also mulling over transfer listing Eric, harry and dele in order to clear the lions share of the stadium debt. There will be others, I’ll just start again, after all, I have a flair for this. Turns out that clairvoyant was right on target about this job being a fruitful enterprise, I was scepticle, especially when he insisted on cupping my balls to do the reading….but dammit he was right….its a liscense to print money! I’ll give mk dons a ring in the morning. Must make a note of these phrases in back of my anglo/spanish dictionary should i re convine with juan sebastian about the young argie lad: sell on value and I’ve left my wallet in a locker at the swimming baths. Well, That shoutings died down, time for some well earned rest. The boss, signing off.

We won the FA CUP at Stamford Bridge in 1923 something the racsists have never done, praps we can win the prem at wembley.

    Improving our first XI would be very difficult without spending like meth-fueled lottery winners. But adding depth at or near their level should be a priority. If we have any real ambition to compete on multiple fronts, we need another 5-6 players at the level of our current first team.

    Players WILL get injured, others’ form will dip at points, and the sheer number of matches and congested schedule demands strength in depth. We don’t have it. The drop off from our first XI to the rest is too great in most positions with few in true competition.

    Van Dyke and Siggy would be a good start. I’m won’t be holding my breath.

    • gloster1861 July 9, 2017 at 7:10 pm

    Harry Hotspur
    – are you actually suggesting that every other club will fail to improve and by some miracle we will some how exponentially improve by doing sod all – at the same time – really

    Harold, this is exactly what you said last summer. In the League, we ended up improving on the year before, whilst everyone else stalled or went backwards. Applying an ‘evidence-based’ argument for why we’ll be a failure at Wembley whilst not applying it to our league form doesn’t seem very scientific.

        All we have to do is have a good October (or was it November) and take our away form up a notch and we will finish top, we will need to win a good few more away as we won’t win 17 at home but it is possible.
        We shall see.

      • Real Fan? July 9, 2017 at 7:42 pm

        1. We will improve the squad, as we did last year (although not enough)
        2. We will win a pot next year ( based on the available evidence that we have got close for the past 3 years: League Cup Final; 3rd place; 2nd place and FA Cup SF)
        3. You cant possibly have any expectations for next season as we’re at Wembley, a guaranteed disaster, so you wont be able to be disappointed…unless you are insane.

    Can’t see Levy willingly walking away. The value of his stake will only increase, and there is no chance he’d ever find another bunch of suckers to pay him a multi-million salary for epic time wasting and an empty trophy cabinet.

  • Totspurs July 9, 2017 at 6:55 pm

    Anyone thinking we don’t need to invest in the first team are delusional. Son isn’t a first team player however impressive his stats are, Davies exactly the same he is a good player no better. Trippier is a very good rwb but not such a great RB. Onomah hasn’t had one good game in a Spurs shirt. Dembele is one of our best players but will need managed age and injury prone. Dier is a good player but certainly not Great. Lamela who knows when he’s back and how being out for a year or more will affect him. Our squad compared to the other big hitters is paper thin. We need 3/4 additions decent proven internationals or Premier league solid performing players. Buying cheap French wingers and hoping they come good isn’t good enough. Spanish and South American players usually take time and I’m not sure they fit our mould. German Belgium possibly Dutch players would cut it. Second Year in the champions league yet were not bringing in anyone with Champions league experience? Players id like us to look at taking in would be the likes of Mahrez Barkley Zaha Antonio Romeu proven consistent Premier players and Veltman Promes Brandt Goretzka Werner Carrasco proven regular Internationals who should hit the ground running and push our squad on.

      Some interesting opinions coming out today. And ones that actually surprise me.

      Spurts, in business, there is a well worn maxim that you grow or die. Firms that attempt to try to tread water, inevitably decay and go backwards. As you espouse capitalistism, I would have thought you appreciated that. The team needs to grow by all means available, and that includes by ‘grow our isn’t produce at the Academy, and by judicious purchases of outside talent where possible.

      Ignoring the second route is not going to maximise the chances of improvement.

      • gloster1861 July 9, 2017 at 6:25 pm

        *grow our own.

        *capitalism

        I’m going back to bed now.

      • 💋 July 9, 2017 at 6:46 pm

        I haven’t advocated any ‘water treading’ or ‘fear of darkness’. I’m simply saying that it is my opinion that genuine ‘improvements’ to our 1st team (and subs) will be very hard to find and that being the case (imo) clamouring for additions and bemoaning their lack is pointless.

        We have an outstanding, young, hungry and improving core group and coaching staff, which we can have confidence in. Of course a judiciously selected addition would be welcome but I simply don’t accept that any addition at any price is guaranteed to ‘improve’ us.

        Furthermore, who says that our ‘improvement’ is determined by, subject to, the acquisition of new players, alone?

        • gloster1861 July 9, 2017 at 6:49 pm

          I advocated using all means to advance the team quality. Including buying players.

    Hey Spurts, that BBC propaganda about kids all living as one happy group.

    My true experience, my son attended an after school club where he was the only little white boy. When he was seven years old, I picked him up and he was in tears. The group’s leader, a really nice West Indian guy called Hughie, said that the other children wouldn’t play with him any more. Because he wasn’t black.

    I’m afraid children come to see their differences really bloody quickly, and no amount of BBC propaganda can alter that.

    • 💋 July 9, 2017 at 6:33 pm

      Not a big fan of kids per se, but I love the openness of the children in this ad. Speshly the ginger lad whose favourite food is cucumber (?!?!) and the lovely little downsy girl. I hate the cynical manipulation of their innocense.

      I feel for your son. It was hard for me at 18 to accept that I wasn’t black, still struggle a bit now to be honest, so it must have hit him hard.

      Seriously though, understanding that we are different is a tough part of the human experience, but I think difference should be celebrated.

      • gloster1861 July 9, 2017 at 6:35 pm

        The BBC appears to be saying that differences don’t exist. They do, suck it up and deal with it. Don’t portray a fantasy world.

        Same with gender. Men and women are different, but equal.

    Harry Hotspur
    – are you actually suggesting that every other club will fail to improve and by some miracle we will some how exponentially improve by doing sod all – at the same time – really

    I don’t know about them other clubs. Although, Everton have spent bundles but I doubt their final league position will be much different this season, and certainly won’t reflect their spending.

    Whether other clubs which spend money improve or not remains to be seen. Most won’t. Most don’t.

    I don’t think we will do sod all; I don’t know what we will do, but my belief has more to do with the quality and desire of our current players and coaching staff and less to do with who we might buy.

    • caveman July 9, 2017 at 5:39 pm

      and the improvement in our players as they get used to Poch’s methods and get used to playing with each other.

    • David Dillenberg July 9, 2017 at 5:40 pm

      They may have bought several players but having sold their best player (like if we sold Kane) Everton’s problem is that Lukaku is probably irreplaceable!

      • caveman July 9, 2017 at 5:42 pm

        and Barkley, the turd that Poch is going to polish.

    • SpurAndy 🍒π July 9, 2017 at 5:52 pm

      Before the mag 7 I would have said that Everton in signing who they have would be significantly improved. Now not so sure. Generally speaking I think a good team would hope to improve by signing no more than 3 new, 1st team potential players a season (not per window). Signing more may be necessary if you have a shite first team which we don’t.

      • 💋 July 9, 2017 at 5:56 pm

        New players coming in = improvement?

        • SpurAndy 🍒π July 9, 2017 at 6:04 pm

          You’d want to either improve the bench or the first team. For us atm it’s primarily about improving the bench imo. If a new player isn’t doing that then you might take a punt on one player out of the three to be future potential. We currently over emphasise on the future potential to the detriment of the ready to go first team potentiallers.

          • Caspurs♿️ July 9, 2017 at 6:22 pm

            Why should we look to only improve the bench?
            Shirley we should look to bring in quality first team players, and say to the current players, this is the standard we’re setting, and see whether they rise to the challenge of real competition for places.

            • SpurAndy 🍒π July 9, 2017 at 6:36 pm

              The way I see it our full first team generally is a match for anyone in the PL. There are superduper stars out there who are better players but we currently can’t pay the wages as our income isn’t strong enough. We need a proper striker who can replace Kane when needed and someone to give Eriksen competition (Winksy not quite there yet). We need game changers who can come off the bench but I don’t see that our fully fit 1st team is badly short in any department.

              • Caspurs♿️ July 9, 2017 at 6:45 pm

                I couldn’t agree more Andy, it’s probably the phrase strengthen the bench that irks me. There are opportunities to improve the team, admittedly not often, but this is where Spurs need to be more proactive when these players do emerge. Clubs such as Dortmund and Monaco have shown it’s not impossible.

                • 💋 July 9, 2017 at 6:53 pm

                  So which part of our best 11 would you improve? And what type of Prem quality first teamer would come as an understudy to ‘gee up’ one of our best? Or, for that matter, what type of Prem quality first teamer would come to fill in for one of our best if / when they are injured?

                • SpurAndy 🍒π July 9, 2017 at 6:59 pm

                  There’s a term that baseball users whereby a ‘finisher’ comes on for the last innings to see the game out. These tend to be high profile superstars. I’ve heard that Rugby, in particular the England team, have started to use the term as well where players come off the bench near the end of the match. Psychologically this gives these players a feeling of importance as opposed to just being ‘bench’ players. However the important thing is that these are strong first team quality which is what we currently miss.

                  • gloster1861 July 9, 2017 at 7:03 pm

                    As when Chelsea brought on Hazard against us in the FA Cup semi. It’s like a psychological hammer blow to see quality players like that coming on when your legs are tiring.

                    • 💋 July 9, 2017 at 7:15 pm

                      It’s an excellent point you both make and an excellent tactic to have in one’s armoury, but it’s entirely impractable for any but the richest clubs. Would Hazard agree to sit on Spurs bench on the promise of a cameo?

                      Actually, wasn’t Hazard on the bench against us because he had a disagreement with Conte? Otherwise he’d’ve been first choice?

                    • SpurAndy 🍒π July 9, 2017 at 7:28 pm

                      You’re right spurts, the only clubs who can really get away with it are the Galacticos. I don’t expect us to have that quality of player on our bench but it needs to be better than wot we’ve got.

    • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 7:22 pm

      Based upon common sense – if we opt to stand still – then we will not move.

    Another I hate: https://youtu.be/BZoXyIxqFRc This ad has nothing to do with how phenomenal chicks are (which they are) and everything to do with women behaving like men. The liberal-left’s determination to destroy all and every notion of genuine femininity and masculinity in the guise of embracing diversity by crushing all forms of diversity that don’t fit the agenda.

    One I love: https://youtu.be/1MJrRvpjB1I Although I hate the sneaky left-liberal subliminal manipulation and ‘one world’ message the kids are being used to promote.

    One I love and hate: https://youtu.be/Yl_WVr66nYs In fact, any clear score ad with the Boxer. Although originally bred in Germany the Boxer (half British Bull Dog) is quintessentially British, and yet the ad makers here given the dog a fricken Mexican accent!

Look at all the players we are linked with and then take a look at which other teams are linked with them. Everton ? West Ham? Is these are the teams we want to be competing with? This chairman is a joke. Chelsea won the league and will improve. Loverpool finished 3rd and are trying to improve as well. We have an awesome first 11, but everyone of those first 11 there are atleast half a dozen better around the world in each position. Let us not make excuses about funds and wages, we have the money. You improve on what you have and to do so you need to break the bank.

  • 💋 July 9, 2017 at 4:47 pm

    Those of you clamouring for new player additions:- Which of our 1st team and subs would you replace? Forget for a minute who you’d replace them with, if you can.

    I genuinely can’t think of a 1st teamer I’d want to lose (including Walker and Lamela) so I’d be looking at squad / development / understudy additions and quite frankly, I refuse to get worked up about them signings.

    If transfer history has taught us anything it’s that where new players are concerned there’s no such ting as a sure ting, either in quality or integration.

    I expect we’ll start the season with a couple of new squad dudes and our, more or less, settled 1st team. We’ll still be the team to beat. I temper that confidence with my concerns about Spurmbley.

    • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 4:55 pm

        We need serious competition for places, therefor if we bought 3 first team players, it’s for the current players to show they’re worthy of a place in the team.
        If the club doesn’t by players, it could have a negative effect on our current players, who may think they’re at a club which has no real ambition.
        To stand still, can in football, have the effect of going backwards.

      • AntSpurs July 9, 2017 at 5:03 pm

        It’s not an easy one. Finding that sort of player who’s likely to hit the ground running/be close to or be an upgrade to what we already have/have no 1st team guarantees (sign to train)/have salary expectations which don’t upset the players we have/don’t cost too much etc etc. Even if we can afford a couple of £50-£70M or even one, what wages will they want. If it’s £140k per week + then our players will feel and rightly so in most cases, that they deserve more. This is very risky as we seem to have a happy, experienced TEAM growing and improving quickly. This is no time to rush into transfers (fat chance of that anyways) 😂

    • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 5:00 pm

      💋 – are you actually suggesting that every other club will fail to improve and by some miracle we will some how exponentially improve by doing sod all – at the same time – really 🤣

      • AntSpurs July 9, 2017 at 5:05 pm

        All the others improved their squads in previous seasons too 😊

        • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 5:06 pm

          Yes – and the best teams won stuff – are you struggling?

          • AntSpurs July 9, 2017 at 5:13 pm

            What did we win ? 😜

          • Sexy Beast July 9, 2017 at 6:07 pm

            Sorry but you are wrong, Arsenal won the cup having played Posh, two non league teams in the 5th and 6th rounds, were very lucky to get past Man City in the semi, were they better than us? No chance!

            • David Dillenberg July 9, 2017 at 6:20 pm

              True but credit Arse where it’s due, in a match they were expected to lose, on the day of the final they made under par Chelski look very ordinary indeed.

              • caveman July 9, 2017 at 6:32 pm

                Just as well Hartley’s out on the farm!!

                • David Dillenberg July 9, 2017 at 6:59 pm

                  Cavey rest assured in Hartley’s eyes I am a closet Gooner and will always be a closet Gooner which is a complete load of tosh!. End of.

                  • 💋 July 9, 2017 at 7:17 pm

                    You’ve come out of the closet?

            • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 7:20 pm

              It was winning the cup that kept Wenger in his job. Do you genuinely not get that? Had they finished beneath us and won nothing, their best manager ever would have been toast. Please tell me you understand how football works.

      • Sexy Beast July 9, 2017 at 6:03 pm

        Just buying players doesn’t mean you are improving, the fact we won nowt is a tad harsh H compared to Chelsea who have spent Trillions in the last few years compared to us, we have come a long long way in a short space of time. Transfer windows are a time of histeria, looking back over the years we have bought plenty of players and very few have been instant hits whilst a few have become (Erikson springs to mind) excellent in time.
        All that said, i agree with you in principal that Levy holds us back…………I’ll get my coat

  • ronwol196061 July 9, 2017 at 4:11 pm

    I was all excited for a second

    Thats half a second more than I was before when the story broke that we were buying Isco but still slower than when the story broke that we sold Bale.Am I a groupie?

    Im all mixed up.Is this Fake news? or ALT Tottenham.I cant figure this one out.

    Harry will be meeting with Vladimir Putin next to buy Tottenham

  • Bruxie July 9, 2017 at 4:10 pm

    Levy WILL go for the right price and continue to work for the Lewis/Enic empire. Why wouldn’t he?

    If you buy a club for megabucks you choose your Chairman.

    If not yourself then someone accustomed to footballing success.

    i.e. NOT LEVY

  • David Dillenberg July 9, 2017 at 3:57 pm

    Brief Interjection: Call me naive but what are Spurs fans looking from any prospective new owners? Those such as Chelski owner/ Citeh owner / Qatar Holdings / Sultan of Brunei with a bottomless pit of money to buy such marquee signings taking the club to the next level. Alternatively what?

    • Camus July 9, 2017 at 3:58 pm

      Good afternoon, naive.

    • Limerick AL July 9, 2017 at 4:04 pm

      À well run Club that wins one league Cup every 20 Facking years. The vast majority of the Spurs herd could not give a fiddlers fuck who owns the club so long as it is touted as a Football Club and not a Pretend football Club.

    • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 4:06 pm

      FFP (sorry, but just for clarity) only permits blood diamond etc money being wanked on capital assets, like a stadium. Or a training facility.

      Levy is such a genius that they way he’s steered the club, one would have to ask ‘who the fuck would want to buy it?’ He’s even hocked the Nike deal, he’s even hocked the ST deal… why would you buy THFC – for a slice (geddit?!) of the Cheese Room action?

  • Camus July 9, 2017 at 3:55 pm

    Good afternoon, desperadoes… Hope you’re all enjoying the peaceful summer. It’s such a relief that we don’t need to sign anyone at all. I would hate to be in Chelsea’s shoes right now, desperately trying to sign any old joker to try to strengthen a title-winning side.

    Levy selling up? They’ll have to chisel him out of the cryogenic ice chamber in the new stadium vaults when he eventually pops his clogs. We are his life’s work and what a glittering career of success he has brought us so far, I’m sure you’ll all agree.

    • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 4:01 pm

      Hahahahhaha.

      Raise your plastic (but still returnable glasses) and hurrah for the ***t!

  • Caspurs♿️ July 9, 2017 at 3:42 pm

    I think it would be quite nice if Lewis sold his steak in the club, just so Levy would have to be someone else biatch, on the proviso he wouldn’t be kept on as chairman.

    • Camus July 9, 2017 at 3:49 pm

      Who would provide the peppercorn sauce though?

      • Caspurs♿️ July 9, 2017 at 5:25 pm

        I don’t know, is that a euphemism?

    • 💋 July 9, 2017 at 4:00 pm

      They’re selling steaks now as well as cheese? Nice. I do like a medium sirloin with stilton melted on top. The new stadium just keeps getting better and better.

      Also love a Philly cheese steak sandwich with onions and bell peppers (US) capsicums (AUS) or peppers (UK / proper).

  • nick July 9, 2017 at 2:59 pm

    We are now in the predicament the scum were in for around 4 years,you can’t spend to fill the new stadium with players as that ship has sailed,ours was more complicated by the Stratford debacle & then The purchasing of land around the stadium.Now building has started regardless of financing in place the stadium has taken president over the footballing side.It will be a few years till the tot ten Ham Super Bowl will pay for any players,then & only then will the club be at its peak sales price.Hence the current power struggle up the road

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? July 9, 2017 at 4:34 pm

      Have you heard their advert on the radio for the emerites cup? I swear if we ever do anything like that I will deny all knowledge of the club.

  • John Greenwood July 9, 2017 at 2:53 pm

    As we all know every club has a price and Joe Lewis intends to get the maximum. It’s not as though he is really interested in Spurs he is rarely seen. And, with Levy running the show under his orders there will be problems ahead. All Spurs fans know that we must buy players for certain positions but they don’t come cheaply. If we want to compete in The Champions League and fill our knew stadium next year we need to invest to have a future and long term status.
    Maybe, we do need new owners sooner than later for we have little faith in Levy.

    • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 3:30 pm

      The bad news Mr Greenwood is that Lewis’ share is in trust for the Levy family.

      Remember the ‘Levy took a shit with his clothes on’ when he went to see the NFL tale?

      That was bizarrely first shared in the UK.

      How so? Because there are people in Tavistock who cannot fucking stand him. I only went public with it once I’d had it confirmed by a guy in the states who sells real estate to to someone high up in the NFL.

      Lewis has 1000% faith in this prick because he’s never asked him for money.

  • Fred July 9, 2017 at 2:42 pm

    Could see a deal where Lewis is bought out (at the price he wants) ,
    and that consortium keep Levy in place as chairman of THFC.

    • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 3:31 pm

      You’re in for a long wait. Since Cain Hoy, Levy’s already told at least 2 enquirers that there is nothing for sale right now.

  • Jim,Newry Spur. July 9, 2017 at 2:40 pm

    Won’t need Barkley then.

  • Sexy Beast July 9, 2017 at 2:37 pm

    Talksport just announced that Siggy was very close to signing for Everton FFS

    • UnkleTaff July 9, 2017 at 3:41 pm

      Excellent news (if true). Another lever to prise Barkley away and into our open arms.

      • McG July 9, 2017 at 3:42 pm

        Yep, that’ll do me.

  • melcyid July 9, 2017 at 2:16 pm

    this is Levys life he will not sell it,even if Joe flogged it the terms would be that he remains chairman where he is untouched

    • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 3:32 pm

      This.

  • UnkleTaff July 9, 2017 at 2:08 pm

    From the previous blog:

    UnkleTaff
    Taff’s soon-to-be-legendary IDHAFC says that this is a load of old bollocks and that neither Lewis nor Levy have any intention of selling the club for any price.
    Stories like this serve one function and one function alone — to raise the profile.

    • Bruxie July 9, 2017 at 2:19 pm

      Everything has its price…

      But I wonder. If Lewis isn’t selling then what does he hope to achieve financially with such a good footing that exists in both team and new stadium .

      Is there a huge financial investment due?

      Or more likely, has a a risk been taken that we will be where we are – or better – in two years time and the price will be upwards of £2bn?

      Get me a ticket to the Bahamas and I’ll ask him.

      • melcyid July 9, 2017 at 2:30 pm

        when the stadium is finished and as long as we stay challengers at the least all they have to do is watch the value rise to 10 bill over the next 10 years,just running the club as is on a day to day basis will give them that,why sell?

        • Bruxie July 9, 2017 at 2:37 pm

          Lewis isn’t getting any younger.

          His kids will benefit.

          How soon is now.

          • melcyid July 9, 2017 at 2:53 pm

            Lewis owns already a multi billion $ golfing estate and marina with a recording studio part owned by Timberlake,he still sits up late into the night trading currencies. he is making $ on paper by the minute .he doesnt need cash nor does his kids they have everything they could want.

            • Bruxie July 9, 2017 at 2:57 pm

              He’s a gambler and a negotiator.

              He’ll sell to the right bidder.

              He’s a supporter – hopefully – and may just have a flutter on an investment sometime soon.

              • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 3:26 pm

                He’s not a supporter Bruxie, that’s the problem. He’s PRIMARILY (forgive the screaming but otherwise the point could be lessened) a bean counter.

                Levt has 0 flair for football.

                He’s a cock.

                He may as well be running a pig farm or a biscuit factory.

                • Bruxie July 9, 2017 at 3:51 pm

                  Lewis:-

                  And he’ll sell pork at the right price!

                  He might not be a supporter…who knows?

                  At least he hasn’t sold us too soon to a Thai/Indian consortium.

                  Levy:

                  Works for Lewis.

                  Will go to the wall with a pay off.

                  PRIMARILY you don’t know what is in their stratgy.

                  • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 3:55 pm

                    I’ve been watching these fuckers for nearly 20 years.

                    If there’s no deal in the drawer and Lewis isn’t leaving it to Daniel then Allah Akbar.

                    Lewis will be dead soon and then we’ll know 🤣

                    • Bruxie July 9, 2017 at 3:58 pm

                      As I mentioned above….he’s not getting younger.

                    • Harry Hotspur July 9, 2017 at 4:02 pm

                      You cheated and looked up how old he is.

                    • Bruxie July 9, 2017 at 4:04 pm

                      Levy WILL go for the right price and continue to work for the Lewis/Enic empire. Why wouldn’t he?

                      If you buy a club for megabucks you choose your Chairman.
