‘I was at the table next to them…’ Former BBC editor reveals who he saw dining with Daniel Levy

By Harry Hotspur -

The Richarlison to Tottenham Hotspur story appears to be gathering momentum. I have to admit that repeated regurgitations of the tale, from ‘monitoring’ to ‘offer being prepared’ did come across as journalists paddling for time. There appeared to be an impasse across the board once the Bastoni deal fizzled out of view.

In a curious twist, this latest update comes from an unusual source. Jon Sopel, former BBC North America Editor, writer, and broadcaster, managed to spot the Spurs CEO and Everton’s Bill Kenwright having dinner together at Scott’s restaurant in London. A venue which, some of you might recall, was the scene of the meeting in 2016 between Sir Alex Ferguson and Mauricio Pochettino.

Of course, it is probably very much the case that owners of Premier League sides do mingle and occasionally sit down to pick each other’s brains. That said, the fact that Tottenham and Everton have been hand-in-glove on the back pages for the past few weeks certainly adds fire to the posh nosh spot.

Kenwright is casting Levy in the lead role of the West End musical of “Phantom of the Opera”.

Apparently we’ve offered £100m for Richalison and Gordon. Would explain this meeting.

Says who? Offered 40 and Winks sounds a lot more plausible.

Methinks that the rumours of Levy’s demise in charge of transfer negotiations appear to be greatly exaggerated. I have little time for Richarlison who is a perpetual dive, cheat and whinger with a reputation as a malign dressing room influence and his valuation is ludicrous. Comparing it to Jesus and latterly Sterling’s, I can’t see Levy paying it. I have also read that Middlesbrough are fed up with Levy’s prevarications over the Spence deal. I should think that the prices at Scotts made Levy’s eyes water. A Dover Sole is £64.

He’s got no problem spending club money on himself…you saw photos of his posh “office” in the new stadium, spending for on pitch success is a different story innit?

Correct, he took 2m out the club and paid himself a bonus when the stadium was completed. Late, and massively over budget… All along with him already being the highest paid chairman in the league. One minor trophy in 23 years, fully deserved Daniel, bravo!! 😂

This PDA with Kenwright is what is known as “add-ons.”

Wonder who paid the bill for the meal… and whether there was a tip to the waiter?

If it was Kenwright then I expect the waiter got his tip.If it was Levy he probably paid in LVs and didn’t tip.
