One couldn’t invent the Spurs Supporters’ Trust. A self – elected fringe group numbering just over 20,000 members have gone all-in with ENIC and after their challenged for the club’s board to resign, have now hatched a scheme which, quite remarkably, is even more implausible.
In a nutshell, this ‘Trust’ wishes to formally infiltrate ENIC’s management of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and so foist 3 random fans upon the club’s Board.
Furthermore, the other half of their plan is to invent a second, ‘Supervisory’ Board to operate in tandem with the original Board – containing the 3 aforementioned random fans.
My fill take is on this video above, but for the record, this ‘Trust’ has evidently lost the actual trust of many fans after unveiling this frankly bizarre master plan.
ENIC are far from perfect owners. Indeed, few investors in this industry are viewed in such high regard, However, the idea that one can knock upon the door of a private business and suddenly appropriate power and influence is – ambitious! And that’s the polite version.
