Aguero To Spurs Would Send Out A Very Bad Signal To Season Ticket Holders|opinion
By Harry Hotspur -

The next set of season ticket renewals will make for interesting reading, as many fans will now have a much clearer idea of where they stand financially than they did last time around. The economy in the UK has taken a seismic hit and the full extent of the damage is yet to be totted up. Many thousands have already lost their jobs and a great many more are waiting to see if a recovery actually happens. We all saw that after the first lockdown that businesses continued to suffer, empty barbershops and half-full bars and restaurants indicated that people were still uncomfortable in many social settings, although supermarkets don’t appear to have skipped a beat, in fact, that’s the only sector to have actively thrived, aside from factories producing masks or hand sanitizers. My point here is that Some season tickets will not be renewed for any number of economic or personal reasons that have impacted society generally by the pandemic.

The Aguero to Tottenham story came from The Telegraph and prompted a good few responses from cynics online such as the one above. This sentiment might not be a million miles from the truth, given the author. This is not to say that THFC isn’t interested in the Argentine forward – which would be a cause for serious concern.

While some fans are determined to build a case for Mourinho being a force for evil, I take the pragmatic view that these are more or less the same bunch the ended up costing Pochettino his job. The Portuguese has a dysfunctional backline and gaps in his midfield and cherry on the past its sell-buy cake is the infliction of Gareth Bale who only shines against teams in lower divisions.

To add a 32-year-old to the mix would be another terrible decision. Sergio is no longer a great player and without any determined disrespect is a has-been, just like Bale.

When weighing up the value of a season ticket to watch this rabble of leftovers and assorted oddments, one has to wonder what the selling points are. There’s also the small matter of no European football – which could be an issue to really blow up if Tottenham were to be saddled with a place in the European Conference League – Europa’s new third tier of competition. The Europa League was just about tolerable, but for a club with a billion-pound stadium, this wooden spoon of a tournament would be embarrassing.

Aguero is the last player Tottenham need and the list of Daniel Levy’s problems is longer than the one from the THST’s.

Does a Tottenham season ticket represent value to you right now, or has the investment company left its offer looking a little pale?

If we don’t get him, we can try for Rivaldo again. He looks in great shape.

Worzel Johnson moving from “unlikely to ever consider a vaccine passport” to “know looking at how it can be implemented”. Lets have full scrutiny and transparency then on the tech platform that this will operate on and how that platform can link into many other area’s of personal data and confidentiality. As Europe enters major lockdowns to stop the wildfire of virus transmission Worzel opens up the UK and allows people to come out of their three month lockdown to welcome in the warm summer weather and the new virus variants that will waltz through our non effective border controls. Lets face it all the virus needs to do is get in an inflatable boat, land up on our shores and it will then be distributed all over the UK at the taxpayers expense. The Government number crunchers have calculated on a spreadsheet in Whitehall the number of new infections that will be occurring and the percentage that will end up in an ICU and the number of deaths that will occur. The risk/benefit analysis used by the bean counters at Whitehall would be interesting to look at in the cold light of day. Into the maelstrom of this sh*tstorm steps the little emperor Daniel attempting to massage his season ticket numbers for the non event, billion dollar multiplex arena. Good to see him promoting the Guns and Roses Tour dates and drip feeding rumour and speculation of all the players that THFC (anchor tenants) are interested in but will not sign to mug off the punters yet again. That ship has sailed Daniel into the Greyhavens but hey look on the bright side. The acoustics in a half empty billion dollar folly will sound amazing and worth every penny of the Champions League priced season tickets you want to charge to watch a European Conference Cup match against a Uzbekistan second eleven with us wearing the latest gag reflex strip that Nike have imposed on us.

This passport horsesh@t is an attempt to terrify the rest of the population who haven’t got the jab to get it. It will happen eventually but for shops it will meet massive resistance. (How are clothes non essential??)The active attempt to destroy the high St. All for a PCR pandemic. Europe have been relatively relaxed the last few months, now it’s Britain relaxing things and Europe getting locked down. By October it’ll be Britain again.

Apparently the numbers of vXed are nothing like what they are reporting. Centres are being closed through lack of interest. They are ramping up the psychological attack.

The MD of AstaZeneca refused to indemnify the vaccine stating that it is was to much of a risk to accept liability for adverse reactions over the next 3/4 years. MHRA when approving the vaccine for use in the UK added to their statement that they anticipated significant adverse reactions over the mid term. What those mid term reactions are it appears to be difficult to find information about?

It’ll be buried. The double standard is incredible. Media on vax reactions: oh it’s only a few deaths…..
Media on Convid when pointed out their death stats make 0.00005% of the population or summin: ARRRGGH! It’s a disaster shut the world!?

Pubs are opening! All you need to do is show the NHS app, rule of 6, sit outside, contactless app payment, table service by staff in masks and gloves…..

May as well be in lockdown still. This will finish the industry off, who wants to go to that pub?? I ain’t even got a smart phone.

Clownworld.

In China.

Too right.

Dispicable. They all need locking up, and there are prosecutions as we speak. Whether they can get convictions is a whole other thing.

As the ins and outs of Jose’s CV and myriad honors were discussed, I thought it maybe worth looking a bit closer at the circumstances in which those honors came, and ones that didn’t. I’m not stupid enough to write off all Jose’s achievements off as bought , he clearly has some magic and charisma, but it’s equally stupid to not recognize the optimum conditions those trophys came under. After a short period at Uniao de Lieria, where he had the team up the top half alongside the big lads Porto came calling. Porto is cited as a massive achievement and got him into Abramovics sights, let’s look at that side that won the CL. Baia , Jorge Costa, Paulo Ferreira, Ricardo Carlvalho, Nuno Valente, Costinha, Pedro Mendes, Maniche, Deco, Carlos Alberto, Derlei….a side filled with the portuguese golden generation. That’s a fantastic team. I remember them being very lucky in the Man Utd match with officiating too. So at that stage it’s not out of possibility that that team could win the big one. So Chelsea come with a open chequebook and carte blanche to build a team to beat anyone. Of course they had massive success. It’s one thing winning when you have monster world class players feeling a million dollars but if the mood turns that’s when management is tested. Jose failed alot of those tests. Inter was more spending and another awesome side, despite a first year title Inter fans were unhappy with performances especially in europe, the year after, perhaps his best achievement, beating Barca and Bayern and winning the CL. The 2nd leg vs Barca was one of the best drilled and tactically sound performances I’ve seen, no player was under 9/10. Madrid came to him to challenge Barca. 1 title in 3 years and no european honors represents underachievement for me. That ended on a sour note too. Another league title back at still financially dominant Chelski , again 1 in 3 seasons and when things got tough he didn’t turn it around and left after a run of defeats. Utd with cash, but not enough to do what he had previously, he won , what to Utd would be considered secondary competitions. Now of course Jose is in the place managers go to die….and he certainly won’t be ‘special’ again. So, some highlights, some in optimum conditions, alot of trophys but I reckon there could av been more. He has the stardust, or had it….a CV that says winner, and on the whole you would expect him to be a winner where he’s been.

I seem to recall saying in this blog last week that Aguero would be part of a swap Deal for Kane.

Surely by now people must know how Levy’s mind works ? We get Bale back past his prime, arguably Jose too. All about the publicity stunt to deflect from his Footballing ineptitude

I think Sergio is going somewhere warm and where the football is less strenuous, and I don’t blame him.

Would prefer him to Vinny for the rest of the season but after that would rather neither of them.

Ahhh yes, the left overs of clubs that Levy demolished WHL to “compete” against….standard.
