Guillem Balague has been chatting to the BBC and has somewhat ‘lifted the lid’ on the inner working of our man Levy.

Let’s just clear something up.

The idea of a 30 year old Gareth Bale back in a Spurs shirt is a warm, fuzzy romantic notion, but from a footballing perspective, it’s a freak show.

What’s particularly hateful is the deep lying cynicism aimed at the fans here.

ENIC are far too busy trying to stuff their mattresses with match-day revenues to even contemplate meaningful improvement of the football team.

Bale would be a token gesture and nothing more. A Vegas Haringey residency for a once big, now clapped out act.

True to type, Levy even managed to bungle the ace up his sleeve.

Balague told the Beeb.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy tried to bring him back to the club with a one-year loan deal and a payment of not much per week, a cheeky proposal that did not reach Real Madrid as everybody knew what the answer was going to be

There’s further suggestion that Luka Modric could be wooed back to Tottenham, using Christian Eriksen as part of a deal.

Under ENIC nothing will improve other than the quality of refreshments, which you’ll have to pay through the nose for anyway.

Lap it, sea-lions.

Being reported in mail that spurs are resigned to losing Toby to utd in the summer. Two interesting points here. 1. He’s that past it, injury prone blah blah that the clubs linked are utd, barca and juve. Clearly not that injury prone that the real big hitters are worried. 2. Apparently this clause can only be activated in the last 2 weeks of the summer window. Not sure if this is accurate, working on the assumption it is tho, how convenient for herr twat head, drags it out for just long enough that by the time it’s done there’s no time to replace with equal quality and we are gonna go with foyth and sanchez. Yawn. Very predictable daniel

Some hugely unpalatable options lurking in that draw. I think I would take a dignified exit to juve if offered it now.

What sort of legend is Berba to be playing at the New stadium at least Keane came back with his tail between his legs.

Perhaps we are being duped by the ENIC spin machine?

Levy will be quite happy for everyone to believe that he ‘tried his best’ to bring Bale back but it just didn’t happen. Great excuse for promoting Amos and Skipp…

Amos & Skipp have already been promoted, Marcus Edwards and CCV coming back will be just like getting new players.

‘a cheeky proposal that did not reach Real Madrid as everybody knew what the answer was going to be’

If it never ‘reached’ Real Madrid then it wasn’t a ‘proposal’. A proposal surely involves a communication of an idea from one party to another. If that communication didn’t happen then that is rather convenient for Balague as no substantiation of this claim is required…

Hard pass on Ratboy or the Monkey Lord. Baldy should be making a bid for the Brooks kid at Bournemouth, high potential at reasonable cost.

I’m surprised he didn’t get the loan for bale through given that we had a ‘partnership’

with Madrid according to the bald cunt.

That worked out well for us as we sold them our best players and they give us f.ck all in response.
Levy is a spent force although I believe according to Harry his prodginy is now working at the club-happy days indeed

This man continues to be a source of great embarrassment to our great club. I can imagine any correspondence from Daniel is treated as spam by firewalls across Europe. He couldn’t even prize a haircut from a championship team last year because no chairman wants to deal with him and his penny pinching ways. I work in the public sector and I see incompetence being rewarded all around me but this clown takes the biscuit. The stick I had to take from my mates when they heard about the cheese room and then the cheese room being scrapped. Prick.

Take on the dean blow up. Basically says fa is admitting they are making an example of ponch. Bet his recent criticism of them unwilling to reschedule matches for teams playing in cl didnt help either.

I have just caught up with the England Squad announcement.How have Trippier,Rose and Dier made it?Southgate ignores Ward-Prowse because he hasn’t played much for the 1st.team yet he picks Delph and Loftus-Cheek.I would have picked Wan-Bissaka,Bertrand and Maddison over our lot.

Continuity, as they were very involved in a World which has become a recent benchmark or England’s achievement.

All the best international teams are a balance of current form and continuity. I see nothing wrong Trips and Dier being involved myself.

Just reading in the Mail that Simeone earns 22M/yr.At least he earns it.Although they appeared pretty uncompetitive last night due to Juve’s absolute determination.

Yet another example of the bald accountant making decisions on transfer targets rather than his manager. If he doesn’t trust Poch to identify talent then for gawd’s sake bring in a Director of Football who can. Might be a good idea to find out who has been talent spotting at Leicester and get him on board considering the great job they have done getting Maguire, Maddison and Pereira, all at affordable prices. Of course that would never happen as anyone with half a clue wouldn’t want to work for a twat who ruins all their good work with his petty, deceitful negotiating tactics.

DOF can’t work under a levy regime . Such a position requires either the Bald one to actually relinquish control (never gona’appen) or the DOF to be as big a patsy that poch whic would make the whole thing pointless.

Let’s get real here for a moment.Bale is on a four year contract which expires in 2022 for which he is paid 350K/week after tax and if I am correct he is currently Real’s highest paid player.
How on earth does Levy even contemplate the idea that he would up sticks and come and join us.Financially he is totally out of our league.I would suggest if he was to move he might go to PSG to replace Di Maria.That is where he would get the kind of money he has become used to.It would not be Spurs.
This is a typical dishonest ploy by Levy following the shopping mall fiasco to desperately re-engage our long suffering fans now that he sees dissent in the camp, an ever precarious hold on a top four place and the disappearance of CL football next season.
In fact every reason to award himself another 6M this summer.The man’s a cunt.

Hahaha. Points deduction for Birmingham has been shut down in every discussion in the media, now Rio Ferdinand has struck the final blow. He says there can’t be a points deduction because Chelsea didn’t get one when Sterling was allegedly racially abused. Game set and match. They played it well. I said from Sunday there would be no points deduction. Classic.👏

Sorry am I reading this right? A “token gesture and nothing more” “a freak show”
Absolute nonsense, this guy is still an absolute world beater and I would have him back in an absolute heartbeat. Not only has he scored goals but has scored them on the biggest stage.
I think we need to realistic on what we can actually attract and I find it astonishing that Tottenham fans would turn there nose up at Gareth bale..
We have to accept that day by day it’s looking increasingly likely that Eriksen is leaving so we have to look at what we can sign as a replacement. I would welcome bale back with open arms and I cannot think of anyone else that I would prefer to replace Eriksens goals and assists with

A fit Gareth bale I would have in a heart beat!! Problem is, his record (even for us) was playing 2 in 3, and dropped to 1 in 3 at Real last year. He would be with us 2seasons at most (due to style of play) so would probably only play 30-40 games in that time. we as a team would play close to 100. He would be paid more than Kane.

Only advantage with Bale over Eriksen, is when Bale is fit, he plays like a world beater…Eriksen, well blows hot and cold.

Yet there is still a section of our fans, hopefully dwindling, that 5hink this half wit is a force for good there!!!! He’s a fucking embarrassing excuse for a chairman who has eyes only for the vast sums he’s had out of the club, and still wants more. I’ve basically run out of complaints against him, the nxt stage will be all out abuse, which I will keep for a pint with the lads and not air here, until he pulls off one of his stunts such as foyth is the new Toby, at which point if I haven’t gone into cardiac arrest I will break the Guinness world records for consecutive swear words to describe him. Where’s the money Daniel?????

Signing Bale or indeed Modric would render everything Levy has been bleating about for the last number of years utter balderdash…..which it is…

An ageing star with no sell on value that would cost a lot. That’s completely opposed to the ENIC way. It would show a desperate attempt to keep fans onside,to believe they care. Bale would come for 12/18 months, be injured for 6 of them and while popping the odd one in the top corner, regressing us back to the real WHL days, he would end up as frustrated as anyone playing for a club run by Levy. Those nostalgia attempt won’t wash, although I know by now I have nothing in common with most Spurs fans when it comes to what washes and doesn’t.

Levy should av backed Redknapp when Bale was here the 1st time.

Both of those scenarios sound awful to me. A ‘Mid-30’s’ Modric in our engine room in the physical PL as a replacement for our most creative player in his prime, and although the romantic proposition of bringing back Bale sounds good in principle, the reality will be that he would spend a lot of time out injured, and take up a squad space filled by someone who Levy should be bringing in to improve the team. And Erikson should be paid in line with what would make him happy and start ticking over for us again.
Not surprised that levy tried to do a cheapskate move to get bale back here either..

Only problem is I don’t think money will do it. I think his head is turned and he wants madbid question is do they want him. He won’t fetch much not in the last year of his contract and refusing to sign a new one. Levy has been levyed.
