There’s no way of dressing this up and it isn’t complicated. Additionally, its important to understand this is what there is.

Got any questions (beyond the evergreen ‘why don’t you kill yourself?’) then I suggest you get in touch with a priest or a therapist or anyone else that isn’t me.

Gladys understands that vultures – in the form of agents – “lots of agents” are circling Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

The Paul Wilson piece that caused such a spin earlier needs to be seen on context.

That context is that this was probably the very first sober piece suggesting that Spurs were vulnerable to poaching that didn’t incorporate some extremely tired and mainly fictious business about Real Madrid or Manchester United.

You see he problem is a lot blunter, a lot closer to home than a AS Sport or Marca headline.

The huge, huge, issue is that Kyle Walker jumped ship. DESPITE being suffocated round the clock with promises, pipe-dreams and architect renderings for not just months but years on end.

Bonzo couldn’t give a toss. Ta ta, doodle pip I want more money every week and I wanna win stuff and I want it now.

He quit and come the summer he’ll be running around his new mansion butt naked with his  Premier League winner’s medal hanging from his wedding vegetables.

Danny Rose has made zero secret that this too was his ambition.

Guess what? There’s a queue around the block of deeply unpleasant folk willing to facilitate similar moves.

The third man is said to Toby Alderweireld.

Wages will not, can not be boosted at the New Destination™ for… well, how long is a piece of rope? (I could get thrown out of the Magic Circle for telling you this, but the answer’s ‘twice the length from its middle to one end’) Financially THFC are entering a period of being even further under Levy’s cosh than usual.

This means the squad cannot expect any eye-catching additions and the squad cannot expect any enhanced  financial rewards.

Agents aren’t having to work very hard here.

‘You saw what happened for Kyle…’ six little words that deliver a blow so powerful you could knock a Chieftain tank over with them.

My belief is that of all the stupidities Levy’s ever been involved with, smugly declaring everyone else’s business model as ‘unsustainable’ will be the one thing that shall haunt him the most belligerently.

ENIC’s model is the one that isn’t bloody sustainable. How do you keep charging top dollar for a second rate product?

Tickets to watch The Rolling Stones sell at worldwide face value of $178.44 each. I looked that up. To watch a Stones Tribute act in your local arts centre is probably about $20. There’s a reason for that.

Maybe everyone will stay forever and before we know it, ENIC will have done so well commercially that for the first time since they bought the stinking rotten rights, they will be inclined to challenge properly for honours like the successful sides.

This however will mean ENIC dropping their guard and letting someone who knows about football to oversee the required strategy, opposed to some weird looking bloke with a degree in Economics and Land Management.

      They can’t all support Man City, surely. Because they’ll win everything. Due to being so well run, and not because of oil money being pumped in through dubious commercial channels, of course.

    Could someone (without going mental about it) tell me how much actual debt the club will be in when we move into the new stadium, please?
    I’m sure it’s a rather complicated calculation but a ballpark figure would do, just to give me a reference point.

    Estimated max of 475mil debt at time of announcing the financing, but no way of knowing a definite end figure. We might instead use extra revenue and not take that whole figure up, or we might borrow even more, though there’s usually an announcement if extra financing is secured.
    I’d suggest 400mil is a good stab at this point.

      Was is reasonably clear is the Levy has squirrelled away shed loads as we haven’t in real tearms spent anything on players for quite a few years, its all guess work but i’d say £250/£300M was in the piggy bank for the stadium.

    I’m sure it’s a rather complicated calculation but a ballpark figure would do, just to give me a reference point.

    This is a point I was trying to make a few blgs back, nobody knows Spurts. We’ve secured 400 mil funding from the banks, but apparently have a 600mil shortfall as the stadium is now costing a billion. You can guarantee we’ve already paid off some of the stadium costs. In another 2 months time the stadium’s true cost will be revealed at 3 billion, with the directors boxes being gold plated. As with HK gone within a year, utter tosh.

  • David Dillenberg December 31, 2017 at 9:44 am

    IMO even better than Villa and Ardille was Spurs swooping for the prolific Klinsmann, secured deal done aboard Lord Sugars luxury boat. Neve saw that one coming. Klinsy immediately hit the ground running and as they say and the rest is history. Lovely jubbly.

    his wife & kids are settled at the moment but if we’re not competing he’ll be gone

    And with just a few words of made up nonsense (cliche) you tear down the hard work of your ITK pub story.

    He’s not married (yet) and his only child was born earlier this year. Why are you trying to make him sound like a foreign player who’s had to resettle his family in another country…instead of being born and living 15 mins from the ground?

    Just stick to the facts.

    • Harry Hotspur December 31, 2017 at 9:40 am

      It’s typical of the thin skinned pedantry doing the rounds that you try and undermine very plausible itk.

      1. He’s engaged not married, so what?
      2. His fiancé and he have one child not two, so what?
      3. What’s ‘foreign’ about him signing for someone else, do Englishman stay put their whole lives?

      • Spurfect December 31, 2017 at 10:06 am

        Wanting someone asking us to believe their story to actually understand the subject they’re discussing thats what. No doubt when the story matches your opinion the facts will likely matter more.

        Much the same as I’ll laugh at people already placing a transplanted Brazilian in our team based on made-up nonsense, I’ll not delve into the misery and hysteria of a player potentially leaving us just because some have decided he’s now too good for Tottenham. Harry will leave if and when he wants.

    The truth for Danny and Joe is that their current level of spending guarantees them high and reliable financial returns so in their minds, why would they put this at risk by significantly increasing wages and spending more on transfers? As a business model, they sit proudly on top of the Goldman Sachs Wall of Fame.

    We all know that Harry (Kane not Winks), Toby, Rosie, and a few others will be gone by the start of next season. Levy’s business model will motivate him to give Poch a huge new contract as he knows that while he is still there, Spurs still have a decent shot of squeaking into the Champions League each year. Our only hope for glory is that Poch beats the odds, history, and logic and manages to pick up a few players in the bargain basement who turn out to be world-beaters.

    Don’t hold your breath.

    • MiT December 31, 2017 at 2:44 am

      “We all know…”

      No.

      There is a lot of supposing, guessing, and speculating going on here based upon the old proverb of misery loving company.

      We don’t know the heart of the man, we don’t know what drives him, we don’t know his life.

      I don’t know why so many good people consistently find themselves carrying on like this.

      “We all know…” Sounds like a drunk, tenured professor beginning a speech on the merits of collectivism.

          We all know the Levy/ENIC business model. If you think Kane is such a aspirationless moron he’ll save us – it’s time to take a nice big overdose of sleeping pills.

    • Horndog 🇺🇸 December 31, 2017 at 2:47 am

      “We all” don’t know that. That is speculative. Yes, it could happen for Toby and Rose but it would be shocking for Kane to be gone before we get into the new stadium.

      • Harry Hotspur December 31, 2017 at 9:47 am

        Even if Kane stays, to what end if we lose more first XI players?

        The killer line is ‘…you saw what happened for Kyle’

        Kane leaving would extinguish Spurs for yet another generation, more top players quitting would simply make any project a bit more laughable.

        I guess the question is, which lesser of two evils do people want to brace themselves for?

    Liverpool have just expanded Anfield with more on the horizon, they will have similar capacity shortly at a fraction of the cost.

    They aren’t worried about the place staging NFL, concerts and monster truck events in order to create revenue. Fenway have decided that they should remain a football club primarily.

    What’s Levy and ENIC playing at? Trying to get blood out of a fucking trophyless stone…

        Ask yourself why we spent less on our team in the summer than Watford & Brighton.

    • jfdit December 31, 2017 at 1:54 am

      if it costs close to a billion as Levy has touted, deduct the £250m we had in the tank, we’re at £750m less about £150m for sale of the flats/hotel then we’ll be at around £600m

      we’re asking £250m for naming rights which is ambitious in current market considering West Ham were close to a 6 year deal for £20m before that fell out of bed

      • 💋 December 31, 2017 at 2:14 am

        So, it’s probably fair to say that at this stage there are too many variables to have any idea what debt the club will be in, I.E. the project ‘might’ cost £1b; the sponsorship ‘might not’ achieve £250m.

        • jfdit December 31, 2017 at 2:27 am

          I’m hopeful that it doesn’t cost £1b & we get circa £250-£300m naming rights deal, the property element is pretty static or undramatic especially with Haringay’s new hard left council, N17 won’t change much with them running the show, I’m aware of one £2b deal being cancelled imminently

          any large debt will hinder the club massively in the transfer market, we won’t find out our true position until after it’s done & shown in the A/C’s

          • Tizzy December 31, 2017 at 2:32 am

            Just to get this right…You think we may owe about £500m after the fact?

            If so then the extra £40m form extra ticket sales and £10mil from nfl would cover that in 10 years.

            The point im making with this is I dont see how we will be any worse off with regards to finances for transfers and in fact will be better off. This is due to us not spending money on land purchases etc that we have for the last 5 years

  • mole ster⚽️ December 31, 2017 at 1:38 am

    What I find genuinely difficult to grasp is how, despite what Maurice or Harry (for example) say, vast reams of highly speculative worst case hypotheticals are concocted.

    Why is it that so many would rather believe the negative, borderline hysteria from outside the club than the actual words of our own?

    • caveman December 31, 2017 at 12:41 am

      No idea Spurts. Sounds like there’s a lot of depressed souls on here. Believe.

    • Harry Hotspur December 31, 2017 at 12:42 am

      When you refer to ‘words of our own’ do you include all the people that Bonzo met on holiday in Ibiza and told he was 100% staying?

      • McG ⚽⚽ December 31, 2017 at 12:44 am

        Bonzo was never one of our own…

          Walker The Whopperer they call him

      • 💋 December 31, 2017 at 12:54 am

        I take your point, but with respect, H, I’d suggest that Kane and Loch saying they are happy at the club and committed to it and Bonzo telling tourists in Ibiza that he was staying at the club are very different scenarios.

        Harry and Poch are quite clearly working hard to achieve success at the club whereas Bonzo was already gone when he made his declarations.

        I realise one can’t trust everything that one is told, but if Kane says ‘I’m happy at the club and would like to spend my whole career here’ how does that translate to him wanting to leave in the summer? And why shouldn’t Kane be taken at face value?

        • Harry Hotspur December 31, 2017 at 12:58 am

          I respect you, but I’d take a hooker’s word over any footballers. Even a dead hooker’s word written on a beer mat.

      Try living in the states Spurts. Borderline hysteria, bullshit, made up crap is believed all of the time. For me, I just believe we need to win something of substance soon, the next year or two, or we will slide back to mid table, as our core will disintegrate.

  • jfdit December 31, 2017 at 12:36 am

    time to face facts fellow yiddos

    Kane will go unless ENIC show ambition beyond what they’ve ever shown to date

    the boy wants to win trophies & why wouldn’t he?

    realistically who in their right minds seriously thinks we’re going to win anything under Levy’s/ENIC’s stewardship?

    I thought we were close then we signed the likes of clintoncards & N’cluedo whilst our competitors signed world class players, frankly we’re the biggest running joke in football, wake up & smell the coffee

    anyone who does is frankly a fucktard who believes in Santa Claus

    • AntSpurs December 31, 2017 at 12:39 am

      May as well down tools and give up then.

      • jfdit December 31, 2017 at 12:53 am

        under Levy’s stewardship we may as well sell 1/2 the squad & pay off the debts, we’re delaying the inevitable

        eventually we’ll have to do it, it may be the trigger to actually rid ourselves of enic & get owners who want to compete at the top level

        • AntSpurs December 31, 2017 at 1:03 am

          That’s not happening though Jfdit. So what we gonna do

          • jfdit December 31, 2017 at 1:06 am

            muddle on what else can we do?

            Kane’s gone by the way, horse’s mouth from his agent, we’ll get one season in NWHL & then he’s on his toes

            • Harry Hotspur December 31, 2017 at 1:08 am

              He simply cannot be kept any longer Levy has zero leverage

              • jfdit December 31, 2017 at 1:12 am

                I’ve told you before his agent lives/drinks (in same pub) near me, I was laughed at when I suggested he’d stay at spurs long term

                he’s gonna go unless we’re suddenly the new citeh or chelsea

                • AntSpurs December 31, 2017 at 1:20 am

                  So what’s Harry said ? What does he want? He’s not staying long term now ?

                  I hope you’re wrong, but you’ve given us some ITK we can hang out hats on.

                  Harry Kane will leave Spurs at the end of the 18/19 season if we haven’t achieved / aren’t achieving success in the way City and Chelsea have / are.

                    • jfdit December 31, 2017 at 1:45 am

                      I think a statement of intent by signing some top players would actually keep him at the club

                      show a bit of ambition FFS, citeh are different gravy, their owners have a clear plan which is public knowledge, what the fuck is ENIC’s plan?

                      we have the best striker in europe on our books if we don’t surround him with better players & pay him what he’s worth of course he’s going to ply his trade elsewhere

                      from what I’ve heard he wants to be at Spurs at the moment especially with the new ground coming & win trophies but we or Levy shouldn’t take it for granted he’ll stay, his wife & kids are settled at the moment but if we’re not competing he’ll be gone

                • Harry Hotspur December 31, 2017 at 1:46 am

                  Fans want to adore him – so they make out he’s so fucking thick he’ll put up with any old guano from Levy. Utter nonsense.

      • jfdit December 31, 2017 at 12:46 am

        enjoy the football by all means, the new ground’s great but we’re all hat no knickers, we’ll be the most indebted club in the world by the time we play the 1st game there

        I socialise with l’arse, chelsea, citeh, pool & manure fans and they think we’re bluffers, we get close & they upgrade their squads & then we’re behind again

        Poch has worked miracles but if we seriously backed him he’d win trophies, our problem is enic are always 1/2 arsed

        • melcyid December 31, 2017 at 12:54 am

            each to their own, I live with a broad church melcyid and they’re no less passionate about their clubs than I, fact is we live alongside each other & share the ups & downs regardless of loyalty, we’ve been better than most in recent times but they’re the ones with the trophies

            being a spurs fan isn’t easy, we have lofty ambitions & expectations, reality somewhat compounds that with our owners business plans

            • melcyid December 31, 2017 at 1:20 am

              those types usually think they are better than you because their team wins things,You can rarely have open discussions with them on a football level because they have a superior wisdom about football than you because their team one something. I find I can have a decent conversation with people that support wba etc as they are more open to the game on a wider level and they have smaller willys than the elites.

              • jfdit December 31, 2017 at 1:28 am

                melcyid most of the other fans I know are old codgers 50+, they’re not johnny come latelys & remember when their teams were also shit

                it’s churlish & unintelliegent to suggest otherwise that their opinions mean shit just because they follow a club I don’t

          You said “realistically who in their right minds seriously thinks we’re going to win anything under Levy’s/ENIC’s stewardship?”

          I do. I’ll take that bet.

          Spurs will win something under Levy’s/Enics stewardship.

          I’d also love to know how Spurs are the biggest running joke in football and how we’ll be the most indebted club in the world by the time we play the 1st game there.

  • 💋 December 31, 2017 at 12:32 am

    Walker started to agitate for a move when he was dropped for Trippier. Ultimately he fell out with Poch, and whether he wanted to leave or not, his days at the club were numbered.

    As it happens he’s a quality player and he made the move that will ensure him riches and success.

    I like Rose the player but his days are numbered, too. He’ll be gone in the summer, I s’pect.

    This is now Poch rolls. You sign to train. You toe the line. You play for the team. No big time Charlies.

    • AntSpurs December 31, 2017 at 12:36 am

      👍 right on Spurta. Maybe he’d have taken £300k per week or whatever but his heart was not in it. He got dropped and he caused a stink whilst we were still in it.

    • melcyid December 31, 2017 at 12:40 am

      I heard murmerings before he was dropped so when he was dropped that justified his stance in that respect.But the main reason was he heard that Harry had named him Bonzo.

          That’s my point, there are so many conflicting stories, who knows for sure? Personally I’d say he did want to leave. We bought Sanchez, we can buy others too, ain’t gonna panic myself. We have an awesome squad, been unlucky with injuries, there will be comings & goings & we’ll still be challenging over the next couple of seasons…

        • AntSpurs December 31, 2017 at 12:26 am

          Bonzo is in his latter years, not twilight yet. Harry is in his prime. Well he’s been in that from the start. Why would Harry not jump is the milk is sour.

      • melcyid December 31, 2017 at 12:35 am

      I’d be shocked if our best players weren’t attracting attention.

      However nothing I have read about Toby and his missing contract in any way suggests he is refusing to sign.

      In fact, he hasn’t been offered a new contract as yet.

      Everything I have read suggests that it is he who is agitating for a new deal. He’s not looking to leave; he wants a bit of security at Spurs.

      I think there’s a lot of scaremongering going on and on top of that there’s the usual kind games being played.
