“Hate you more than Sol Campbell you rat” The Latest Club Tweet Has Provoked So Much Vitriol From So Many Supporters| video
By Harry Hotspur -

Oh boy, Daniel Levy is really feeling the heat and if the overwhelming reactions on social media are anything to go by, then the idea to release an appeasement video was a bad one. You see, people like consistency, and people like other people that they can emotionally invest in.

The reaction to this video is frankly awful, on any level. Fans on this thread are clearly furious and furious and wholly unsympathetic.

It also looks like there’s an inference that Pochettino ‘could have been backed, but he was too truculent’, which is frankly obscene.

This is a horrible, terribly misjudged moment.

Yes Covid,I wonder how often that will be used as an excuse for no revenue.It seems to me that had the shopping centre been completed on time and on budget there would have been a lot more money in the coffers with the stadium having provided nearly two year of income.

Still we can’t let a trivial matter such as that come in the way of Levy’s bonus.It will be interesting to see what he pays himself for this last year..I wouldn’t mind betting he has furloughed himself on the quiet.

You should then drop your support for Spurs. Why continue to do so when it has caused you so much anguish. This statement applies to all so called Spurs fans who do not support Levy. There is no way that Levy is leaving Spurs anytime soon and if you hate him so much, why continue to undergo such stress?

Why should he drop his support? I support Spurs and have done so for 60 years. As a die-hard, lifetime supporter my allegiance is to the club and the team, not its owners.

The ownership axis of Lewis and Levy has delivered one, minor, trophy in 20 years of ownership, our worst such two-decade run since WWII.

Based upon hard logic and actual statistics, rather than cult-like devotion, why should I support an ownership group that has delivered such mediocre results?

A blatant PR exercise, designed to exculpate one Daniel Levy from any and all responsibility for the current plight of the club. Contrary to Levy’s phony insinuation regarding a 1.5 billion GBP investment in THFC, the truth is that ENIC have invested not one penny of their own money in the club, in 20 years. The entirety of the almost 1 billion GBP debt occasioned by Levy and ENIC is collateralised against the assets of THFC, there is no personal financial liability appended to ENIC’s principal shareholders, Lewis and Levy.

Accordingly, if as a club owner one is not a benefactor, like Abramovic, Sheik Mansoor, etc, then the sole purpose for owning the club is exploitative and predicated upon personal and corporate financial gain, which is manifestly the case with ENIC, no matter how disingenuously they try to manipulate public opinion to the contrary. As this scripted PR stunt clearly illustrates, Lewis and Levy are now solely concerned with protecting their investment and their public image, whilst deflecting blame from their own executive ineptitude and corporate malfeasance.

i disagree with some of this. firstly they had to buy the club from Sugar, it is impossible to know how much of this money was their own and how much was borrowed, But some must have been theirs.

It is bizarre to state “is collateralised against the assets of THFC, there is no personal financial liability appended to ENIC’s principal shareholders, Lewis and Levy.”
Can you substantiate that ? you can prove there is no personal liability ?

Can you prove “corporate malfeasance”,

If so I will happily fund a “no win no fee” case.

Many of the fans find it hard to ‘enjoy’ year after year of failure. Perhaps try sometimes not to just see things through your own personal perspective. There are thousands of loyal, lifelong fans that have had enough of ENIC. Try and respect that, the’ve been to more matches home and away than you or I, I suspect over the last 40, 50 or even 60 odd years. Many will vote with their feet and you’re be calling them ‘weak’ or something like that. Just completely inaccurate.

ENIC International Limited, is a Bahamas based private limited company. By definition a limited liability company is a type of legal corporate structure that protects the shareholders and owners against any form of personal liability for losses and debts and ensures that their liability is limited to the amount invested in the company.

The fact of Lewis and Levy buying THFC from Sugar and other assorted shareholders, via ENIC International Ltd, Kondar Ltd, Hodram Inc and whatever other holding companies or corporate structures they employed, doesn’t in and of itself constitute investment in THFC, it is merely their acquisition cost.

When Levy euphemistically refers to THFC as a ‘self-sustaining’ model what he actually means is “we don’t invest a penny of our own money in it!” and as the limited liability structure of ENIC International Ltd precludes any personal liability on the part of its shareholders (Lewis and Levy) for losses and debts occasioned by THFC, then the nigh on 1 billion GBP debt financing of the stadium, assuming that it is all secured, is collateralised against the assets of the club.

I am not asserting ‘corporate malfeasance’, merely alluding to it. As corporate malfeasance, by definition, can include unethical conduct as well as outright illegalities, I would venture to suggest that allowing the playing side of the club to disintegrate from Champions League finalist status to Eurotrash afterthought, within two years, is a severe breach of fiduciary duty on the part of ENIC and Levy and thus corporate malfeasance.

Do you count success on a training facility and stadium if so that means we are more successful than Leicester. How can that be we have never won the premiership or the fa Cup in the Enic time of ownership. I guess it depends on how you judge success, having the biggest debt in Europe that is some success. Well you did mention Barcelona so I guess being on par with them in debt will keep the fans happy.

Lewis is no less of a rapacious oligarch than Abramovic and arguably more steeped in blood money than the latter.

The interview was totally contrived which is not unexpected. It was deviously subtle and not in the slightest bit sincere or compelling. I for one do not believe that football managers routinely forego opportunities to improve their squads and yet that is what Levy is inviting us to believe here. That is annoying. No we must also resign ourselves to yet another period of relative austerity compared to other top club spending I assume (money too tight to mention type stuff). My feeling is that it will not help Levy get out of this mess. I think he knows that he has virtually no respect outside of those on the pay roll hence the transparent attempt to put distance between himself and DOF + manager/coach who will clearly be responsible for results irrespective of squad quality.

All of that may well hold water and stand up to scrutiny, had we not sacked a manager and put a 29 year old novice in his place 6 days before a cup final , against a team coached by 1 of the great football managers of modern times . And quite obviously there was no proper plan or strategy in place for that cup final .

I had no time for Jose, felt he should have been gone after the Zagreb game but I’m pretty sure he would have had a proper plan for that League Cup Final.

Clearly Levy and co are rattled by the fans opposition to the whole new manager situation, and obviously DL is not in the Bahamas with Lewis. The whole facade of that video is preparing the path for the appointment of Fonseca and the flack that will come with it.

On a much more important note , great news on our 23, Eriksen , it was very very upsetting to watch .

He downed tools because he was underpaid and over valued by Levy and reneged on an agreement he had with Levy.
Do you seriously think Poch wanted to play anyone who was mentally elsewhere?

This one annoys me – I wonder why, probably trying to ship in a cartload of manure that will take 5 seasons to offload.

Even the subtext annoys me, it infers that the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing.

Actually that’s a brilliant spot, because essentially what Levy is doing three is an admittance that he was interfering too much in team affairs , trying to buy players that Poch didn’t want . And that speaks volumes of Tottenham Hotspur of the last 20 years , buying young players to improve the team but with the overarching principle of what their residual value would be.

I have to admit that the gag reflex meter was working over time during this car crash of a PR stunt by Levy to set the record straight. The list of prepared questions and answers was text book ENIC and Levy smoke and mirrors. Narcissistic denial of culpability permeates from every pore of this wretched attempt to appease the growing groundswell of discontent between the client reference numbers and the owners and chairman of this club. Levy must be feeling the heat if he thought it necessary to slither out of the shadows he usually inhabits and talk to the supporters direct. As he said he prefers to remain private or in lay mans terms not in the cross hairs of the gaze of the spotlight as he step by step lays waste the legacy and heritage of this once great football club. The man has no empathy with the club or its customers which is highlighted in his brazen statement that all revenue from the clubs activities go straight back into the football team. At that point I had to reach for the brown bag and heave 20 years of frustration and anger at his and ENICs consistent betrayal of everything this football club stood for. I had to repeatedly change the brown bag as the mother load was a large one. As I have said before, the jig is up and every-time these parasites attempt to recover some credibility all they do is dig a much larger hole to disappear down. It is over ENIC and the sooner you and sleeping Joe realise that fact the sooner you can close the door on the way out. Your brand is toxic and in the immortal words of Gandolf “the stench of ENIC” needs washing away.

The problem with ndombele is not a sudden thing it is something he had before joining lyon. He has real fitness issues and I’m guessing that is why city did not buy him. He has magic in his boots but holds the ball too long and slows the play at times. I’m not meaning to knock him he has great skill problem is sometimes only he knows what and where he is going.

I was impressed by that interview.Levy managed to sink to depths of insincerety that I thought even he was incapable of.It was so obviously tightly scripted and controlled as to be laughable.This is yet another PR disaster from the club.Can they do nothing right?

He does admit though that there will be years more of Jam tomorrow and obviously none of the ills that have befallen the club have anything remotely to do with him.He is the Teflon Dan.

So glad we cleared that up. So building the stadium and letting it double in price was not a great idea as that is where the 200 million loss came from. Was not the team because you nearly always break even over the year on team spend. Also making sure we never bought the players managers wanted was another great idea. A true hero to all clueless idiots out there.

Well a) I think his ego alone means that deep down he knows full well that to be treated as a success in this job he has held for 20 years he’s going to need to deliver some silverware. I just do not see how you can work at a football club for 20 years and genuinely not give a toss about the football.

Like, I don’t believe he is actively, maliciously trying to destroy this club!

His top priority is the balance sheet though, and his ego/control freak nature means he’s treating the whole thing like some 15 yr old playing a game of Football Manager

Well he is a bit of a toad, I’m just saying, HE thinks he’s doing the right thing. He knows we don’t have oligarch money and so I expect he is hoping to fluke something Leicester style at some point. I think saying that he doesn’t actually care is probably unfeasible.

And, to be fair to him, on maybe one point, he did indeed get desperately unlucky with the timing of the stadium.As nice as it is to go there (and take your rose tinted specs off, WHL was not an appropriate home for a “big club”) it will probably be a decade before we recover financially.

When you focus solely on one thing that is all you see its called tunnel vision. That is what happened with levy and the stadium. He was so focused on making it the best stadium anywhere he lost total control of the spend and interest in the team. He knew that get the stadium built with enough seats and enough things in it that sparkle it would pay its way. All he then had to do was bluff the fans something he has been doing since he arrived. The team never at any time mattered if it did he would have bought grealish or dias. Same with all the rubbish he bought if the team mattered he would never have bought them. When things matter there is money when they don’t we have to be prudent.

Agreed, and god knows how many millions he wasted making it NFL friendly, that certainly sticks in the craw too.

Again, hypothesising, but judging by what I’ve seen of him my guess is he viewed the stadium as “his legacy” – something that would be his mark on the club that will still be standing in 100 years, whereas the team will be forgotten in 5.

I genuinely think he feels like he’s doing everything right, and has been unlucky, or let down by managers etc. I mean he’s not, but I think he’s blinkered, not malicious.

Suggesting that criticism aimed at Levy is misinformation? The sheer f***ing gall!

“We see how much work you put into the club every day. People around the club know you in a very different way to your portrayal in the media.”

The questions put to Levy make this seem like a North Korean reporter interviewing Kim Jong-un while fearing for the lives of himself, his family, friends, their families and so on. Why the hell go out of your way to praise what this parasite has done to a once proud club?

Also, I don’t believe for one second that he’s transferring the football agenda fully to Fabio. No one should. The wording of that makes the real intention abundantly clear – “here, take this Italian bloke and from now on, if we don’t do well, please dangle him out of the window, not me.”

You could go sentence by sentence and unearth what he’s saying and why, but I can’t be bothered. I don’t believe a damn word he says; he has, absolutely has to go.

If not them then another entity involved in the redevelopment of the area. All the planning permissions and development things have been based around the stadium. Demolishing social housing will be far too iffy to put the club’s name directly to.

So whoever that is, will be someone related to the mayor’s office or something, some regeneration or housing trust people. Too messy PR wise for the club to put a name to. Same sh*t though…

re the regeneration. Not one Tottenham resident has been moved out that didn’t want to. And none will. Even here on the farm where two blocks are being knocked down all residents were given the choice to move back. This is Tottenham. They wouldn’t dare try handle people like that. They know they have to handle tottenham people carefully/sensitively or Tottenham will burn it down again. This ain’t fkin hackney. They are afraid of us and rightly so.
