A New Twist In The ‘Can Daniel Levy Keep Harry Kane At Spurs?’ Tale Will Literally Break This Evening
By Harry Hotspur -

The Football Association and UEFA have described the notion of a potential European Super League as ‘cynical’ – which ought to tell wide awake observers that this proposed new enterprise is set to REALLY upset those with their noses stuffed firmly in the Moneyball Trough!

Spurs are amongst the 6 top English sides that are said to have penned letters of intent according to the Mail Online to join a European Super League. Manchester City Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham comprise the breakaway sides from the Premier League.

Who is behind this? Our friends in America. JP Morgan are said to be financing what has been called the brainchild of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

Mmn.

This attack on the footballing status quo could be a marketing dream. The plan is for the European Super League to involve roughly 15-18 sides… initially.

What we are looking at here would get Daniel Levy out of jail in the short term, but in fact make it far more logical for Harry Kane to move out of N17 in equal measure.

Anyone lifting their skirts and clucking over this notion probably had ancestors that were put out of business by the internal combustion engine.

Details of this initiative will break at 2130 hours tonight.

I give you… Champions League football, without being good enough!

It is actually embarrassing that we are included with the teams involved in this, We have no right to be in this group when you consider what they have achieved in terms of football success and we have just one league cup victory in over 20 years. Still we have s better stadium than most of them and that’s the important thing.

Not that finances are fair, but if six teams are going to get a princes ransom for committing to the super league its going to make it doubly hard for anyone outside those teams to win the league or cups.

The six English clubs will be removed from the Premier League and their players, ie Harry Kane banned from the England team and probably all players, Lloris, Son banned from International football.

I think this might be a power grab by the big clubs, it’s a way of getting more leverage over the rest of the Premier League and Champions League.

If you don’t give us more money and control we’ll walk away.

No way will Harry Kane stay with any club that stops him playing for England, that’s my guess.

This season has been a slap in the face. Whether or not you rate Jose, it’s shown Levy for the opportunist chancer he really is on the football side.

I’m staggered that he’s never been under more scrutiny by the fans or the media. To be fair, ENIC’s PR machine have played a blinder for the past 22 years.

This idea that Levy is a ‘responsible’ chairman is just total balls. He’s the chairman of a football club and a very big one at that, he’s ‘responsibility’ presided over one League Cup and 14 managers over 22 years. What’s so responsible about delivering failure, season after season exactly? Responsibly watching Leicester City have more on pitch success than us! I mean the list goes on.

the only thing Levy is responsible about is protecting and adding value to the investment company. No wonder he never does interviews…

Same with the music business, once it all becomes just about money the quality begins to drop. Back in the day there was consideration about the quality of the product you were selling, so they gave someone like Fleetwood Mac loads of money and several years to make a record.

You have to allow the magic to remain, once that goes people will just spend their time and money elsewhere…

For example, those sh*tty boy bands and all that stuff only really became so prevalent when investors wanted to reduce risk and increase certainty of return on their money. Why go and sign a bunch of talented but possibly wayward young people who could make brilliant original music? Better to manufacture a bland, homogenised version of pop music with everyone behaving themselves and not risking the investment growth predictions…

Funnily enough tomorrow UEFA are meeting to pass a new Champions League format that would double the number of games from about 120 to over 200, and mean playing in January.

The FA say that could mean the end of the Carabao Cup and massive damage to the FA Cup if the big six withdraw to play more lucrative Champions League games

The new format does away with the groups of four stage and has over thirty teams in a League with the top eight into the play offs and others playing knockout games to make the last 16. All clubs are guaranteed 10 games.

Of course, Great Britain was the home of cup football; there was very little interest, generally speaking, in the domestic cup competition on the continent – and some countries had even done away with it – until the commencement of the European Cup Winners Cup. This new competition, starting in 1960-61, led to countries reviving their cup competitions.

The League Cup could have an under 21 quota rule in it, it would add an extra dimension to it and give younger fringe players game time in high profile matches. So for example, you must have at least 4 U21s in the starting 11 and say 8-10 in the match day squad?

I just think the League Cup has been so devalued that it would actually add more value and interest in it with something like that to make it different.
