Don Paratici Set Eloquently Set Out A Clear Vision For Spurs’ Future|video
By Harry Hotspur -

These are exciting times to be a Tottenham fan. Thankfully the outdated White Hart Lane stadium was finally demolished, and our visionary chairman was able to free us from our chains of mediocrity, and the footballing world can only blush at the within touching distance progress there is to be experienced.

Fabio graciously allowed the club to subject himself to a no-punches-pulled hot seat interview, and I, for one, was energized by his stirring words. The future is bright, The future is in safe hands.

Fast talking sales person! and you think dele is an imposter. What’s the issue here anyway? We have a great club and aren’t sports washing. The same millions that fund Chelsea put people like Trump in power and bounties on our soldiers heads. Same billions that fund city blow up stuff in the same city. Sell our souls for a trophy, no thank you. Take dele scoring against Madrid at Wembley, my 4 year old son going to the spurs stadium for the first time, singing my heart out standing on a bar table as the only spurs fan in a bar full of Liverpool fans in porta del sol Madrid, losing against West Ham in the Leicester title race, getting more points over 3 seasons then any other team yet not winning a title, I’ll take that over any trophy

Looking beyond the club and it’s state of affairs, the much bigger issue here is the ownership of clubs and the calibre of people being allowed to take control of them.
The Newcastle takeover is not the way to go, I wouldn’t want this group anywhere near Spurs.

Don Paratici, Levy’s new buffer. Just like Willie Cicci giving evidence before a senate committee in the Godfather part two, ” Yeah, that’s right senator, the Godfather’s got a lot of buffers”. The big difference between Juventus and Spurs is that they are a football club which we are not and never will be under Gollum. Incidentally, Juve did not wish to extend Paratici’s contract rather like Wolves with Nuno. I thought that £300 million for Newcastle was cheap and could never understand why Ashley couldn’t find a buyer before. Levy now values the club at a reported £3.5 billion by the way. Incidentally, I would be careful if I was a local NUFC journalist and asked the wrong questions. You might end up like the Saudi journalist, Kashoggi. What a charming bunch most of the owners of PL clubs are now. It always makes me laugh when fans defending the indefensible, Enic and Levy, always state we should be careful what we wish for if Enic sell. I know what my response would be.

The Newcastle takeover really is yet another nail in the Levy/ENIC business ‘model’ coffin and all of the underhand spin around it.

The world has moved on and Levy’s ‘sustainable match day revenue’ means of raising funds looks rather like something from the steam age. While the top four or five clubs are looking more and more like globally branded and petrodollar fuelled Lamborghini’s by the day, speeding off into the distance.

All this ‘doing things the right way’ talk is utter clap-trap. How long has Abramovic been around, circumventing the myth that is FFP? Citeh get a meaningless slap on the wrists etc, while our supposedly ‘principled’ owners try pathetically to ride on THEIR coat-tails, by joining a self governing (FFP-free) Super League. You really couldn’t make it up.

We, like Arsenal are owned by people that are content to suck the lifeblood out of the football, if it means they get to profit. Generational debt to service… The Saudi’s who’ve rocked up at the Barcodes certainly won’t be creating any unwanted generational debt, quite the opposite I suspect.

While we’re on the subject of Newcastle, it dawned on me today that our owners have far more in common with Mike Ashley than most of the owners in the league, (with the exception of our aforementioned near neighbours).

They don’t put any of their own money in, and the club wins nothing just like Newcastle under Ashley, sure we might tread water higher up the league but the end result and approach is the same, essentially.

Our only hope is to get sold to another billionaire rather than the one who currently owns Spurs, who will never open his wallet and who’s now well into old age. So let’s hope some shady character from a regime with an iffy human rights record rocks up and saves us from these unimaginative accountants and property developers who put zero money in.

The world has moved on a lot in 22 years, and it’s time they did the same. They have no to cards left to play…

If it can’t be Spurs or the Villa that gets this outrageous piece of good fortune (ie massive investors), then I’m pleased it’s Newcastle, a grand old club with terrifically passionate fans and long overdue some tangible success on the field. But the whole sport of football (sport?!) today sickens me. I have rather different tastes in music, movies etc from the vast majority of people and it’s partly for this reason that I don’t bin football, because I’d have significantly less to talk to people about. It’s a thoroughly sordid business nowadays, though, taken over by hideously wealthy owners and to use a quote – out of context – from Harold Pinter’s The Caretaker it “stinks from a……e to breakfast time!”

You are correct in my opinion on the tardy state of football these days. A bit of old school RDBT would be great – you just need to make 3.5b to buy the horrible parasites out.

Come on old Joe, do us a favour and give us some hope by popping your clogs – you’ve had a good innings! Isn’t it an indictment of what was once a sport that, IN TRUTH, nearly everyone of us would like a scenario to unfold, however sordid, like the one in your penultimate paragraph?

Well it’s not really a question of liking it, it’s more to do with it being the only way there any hope of keeping step with these other clubs. It’s the norm now, not only in football but everything.

This is dystopia playing out before our eyes, tech companies acting with complete impunity, Amazon aided and assisted in their destruction of the high streets by everyone.A global flow of movement of cheap labor at the behest of the corporations.

The thing you care about outside of your family and friends, where you go to worship and congregate with your fellow man and woman with a shared passion.

If you support a big club with a big flash stadium, unless it goes big and walks the walk what’s left? They tore down the physical embodiment of the club’s soul to sit just above mid table, while paying off close to 1bn of debt.

What’s left without success if you don’t have the tradition and identity either. Apart from overpriced merch etc?

Part of the club died when they pulled down WHL and unless the new place carves out it’s own history in the present there’s not much left. Let’s be be brutally honest…

All perfectly grimly true, I’m afraid, what you say, Eastie. Not much morality left in today’s world. I must say though that, despite their hideous new sponsors, I’d love to see Newcastle ruling the roost over the north west clubs, hopefully handing out some regular beatings to Man utd and Liverpool especially. Though I was in Durham territory rather than Northumberland, the county Newcastle is historically in, I met really lovely, friendly people when I was doing my tour of first class cricket grounds and was up in the north east.

I dunno mate, feels like on the one hand you regularly bemoan the quality of our football, the quality of the players we bring in, and our position in the league, yet now on the other accept that we cannot compete with the petro-dollars of those above us.

Cant have it both ways, if anything you’re even making a GOOD case for Levy trying to find additional revenue to make up the difference (which is impossible by the way).

Not one mentioning of “Winning ” Just meaningless sound bites from the ENIC/Levy spin machine of “Long term project”(More jam tomorrow) ” Be competitive” (Pooch is back), “Do the best we can” ( That is the extent of the club’s ambition). ENIC and Levy want to hold the club in this perpetual bubble of a “project” as justification for the lack of investment and lack of success. It is groundhog day extended to a season every time. If Paratici has accepted this mantra then he is already a busted flush in my eyes. He stated he had been at Juve for over a decade and saw this club as a similar appointment. We can expect this verbal bile for many seasons to come as justification for the lack of football success whilst Levy and ENIC will be focusing on all revenue matters un football-related and THFC becomes insignificant, more so than they are already.

Just like Arsenal Levy gambled on a new stadium to compete for the Champions League etc.

And just like Arsenal all the best laid plans didn’t account for the rise of Chelsea and Manchester City.

Now Newcastle have done the same to Levy’s dreams.

If he does manage to net spend his way to trophies in this situation fair dos to him.

But he won’t! And Newcastle now one of the six biggest clubs in the country because of their financial resources (up to this moment, they certainly had, at least, one of the eight or nine largest fan bases in the country). We have a large fan base but, currently and for the foreseeable future, financial resources that are not commensurate with it. The purchase price of Newcastle represents tremendous value for money compared to the suggested three and a half billion for Spurs.

Slightly more mixed?? The first 3 wins the performances were such you knew what was coming. Getting battered by Palace , and 2 massive London derby’s including NLD is not “slightly more mixed” it’s $#@%%# embarrassing.

Very pleased for Newcastle and their VERY LONG suffering fans, last meaningful trophy Inter Cities Fairs Cup in 1969 and last first tier domestic trophy, FA Cup in 1955, last league title, 1927 (after winning that FA Cup in 1955, the Toon had won as many first tier trophies as Liverpool and Man Utd combined!). BUT FOR FOOTBALL GENERALLY, the continuation of an unfortunate and hideous trend with appalling Arab oil and Russian oligarchs taking over our clubs, even though MOST OF US, in all honesty, would like our club to be so lucky in its financial backing. It has spoilt football, though, turning an erstwhile SPORT into very grubby big business.

Not that we PROPERLY belong to it anyway, given our lack of trophies, but this Geordie takeover, if it happens (and I think it will), will soon spell goodbye to us as one of any Big Six unless we very smartly get ourselves into a new European Super League, our stadium being the only possible reason for any such inclusion and certainly not playing merit.

Yeah, it’s gone beyond repair now. They will likely demolish St James park at some stage. Proper football is in the lower divisions only now. Top divs are just WWE entertainment inc. with corporate arenas bar a couple like Burnley, Palace and Villa….Everton have sold their soul too finally.

He says lots of people know what it is they want to achieve but not HOW to achieve it! So isn’t that ironic that our chairman has still not figured out the HOW after 2 decades?!
