It seems that violent protests in the new fashion trend these days when you cannot get your own way and it may yet creep its way to the Tottenham stadium.
Egged on by the so-called new fan media and sycophant craving pundits, fans are emboldened to attack the police and stewards all in the name of “peaceful protest”
Apparently, there is nothing else to be done and violence and disorder are the only way. Seems that Gandhi and Martin Luther King missed a trick here.
The thing is this, football fans are a fickle bunch and can and do change their attitudes based on how the wind is blowing on a particular day.
Would these Man Utd fans have protested yesterday if a win over Liverpool would have secured them the title?
Would they be protesting if United had announced yesterday morning the double signing of Mbappe and Haaland?
Don’t misunderstand me, Tottenham fans, that is us, are not much better. Look at the response to Gareth Bale’s antics yesterday, apparently, he is back to his best and should be re-signed for next season, yet those very same fans were calling for his head after the Arsenal and Dinamo Zagreb fiasco’s.
And it is because of that fickleness that Daniel Levy can use to ward off any potential protests.
Man Utd cannot do anything right now, they cannot make any massive signings because the transfer window remains shut and they are stuck with a man that denies children food as their manager.
The same applies to Arsenal and Liverpool owners, very little that can be done right now to appease the fans. Forget Chelsea and Man City, they are happy with their owners who have bought them success over the last decade or so and will not bite the hands that feed them.
This is where Levy has a small advantage, he has the naming of a new manager up his sleeve, he also has the stadium naming rights to announce at some point and he knows that he has to splash the cash in the summer and not to please the fans but as a purely business decision.
The minute the heat gets too much, watch him announce the new manager and it will be a popular choice, that is a certainty, his thinking right now is all about appeasing the fans.
Levy is a clever man, he will use all his cunning to navigate tricky waters ahead and so expect some announcements, possibly even before our next home game.
A cynic may even say on the morning of the next home fixture is the most likely time a new manager will be named.
