“If something needs to be done there is probably no-one better to do it” Support comes in for Tottenham man
By Bruce Grove -

Former Arsenal man, Kevin Campbell, has supported the appointment of Daniel Levy as a board executive of the European Club Association.

The Spurs supremo took the Lilywhites out of the organisation to become a founding member of the European Super League.

After that idea failed following a serious backlash from football fans, Spurs have now returned to the organisation.

They also now have a representative at the board level after the ECA confirmed Levy’s appointment on Twitter.

Levy has developed a reputation for being one of the best football negotiators in Europe.

He knows when his Tottenham has a top talent in their ranks and he always gets top dollar to sell them to the bigger European clubs.

Dimitar Berbatov, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale are three top players he has made clubs pay big money to sign.

Campbell says he is absolutely the right man to have by your side if you want something done.

Campbell told Football Insider: “Levy has been in his role a long time at Spurs. One thing is for sure, he knows his way around football.

“He has come under quite a bit of stick sometimes but you have to ride it out as a chairman which he has. The fans do not know the ins and outs of the situation at the end of the day.

“He has battled the likes of Harry Kane and won. Kane is staying so you have to admire his conviction.

“I think it is a good appointment. Levy is a tough negotiation, that’s for sure. If something needs to be done there is probably no one better to do it, let’s be honest.”

He half-inched Joe Rodon.

“I believe he has no possibility of being fully integrated into the club.” – Paratici’s ex boss on what he knows about his situation at Spurs. Another yes-man with his hands tied? 🤔

Who would have thought it?! Pep gave it away when he said Levy wouldn’t negotiate. Patsy Paratici.

Fair play to him for that.

You say he always gets top dollar for Spurs players. Well, he certainly didn’t get that for Kane whose value will start to diminish over the coming seasons. Furthermore, did he get top dollar for Eriksen, Alderweireld, Rose and Dembele? Let’s make one thing clear, Levy is running a property company with THFC as anchor tenants.
He has increased the NAV of Enic to enrich himself and Lewis but his efforts to produce success for the football club after twenty two years in charge are laughable. Enic will continue to rinse the more gullible fans whilst attaining little or no success on the pitch.

Even 20 million for Trippier was hardly ‘top dollar’.

“Levy is running a property company with THFC as anchor Tennants” if you say so.
Clueless

I am quoting directly from Aidan Mullally, THFC’s head of business development. I have sent you this before but you seem incapable of understanding it.

“It is an NFL stadium and that’s the key message. From the very start during the design phase, we have had the NFL in mind. The anchor tenant is Tottenham Hotspur, but this is designed to be a permanent home for the NFL outside the US.”
Premier League business lead, Aidan Mullally

Thanks Marbs, it’s official, that’s the situation and there’s no escaping it…

Just out of interest, do you think that our host, HH, is also clueless? The reason that I am asking is that this quote was lifted from a post by HH on the 24th March 2019.

You enrage more people that you engage with, and you DO NOT have facts on your side.
Wakey wakey.

A robust exchange of views, nothing wrong with that as long as it doesn’t turn abusive.

Official words from ENIC; ‘anchor tenants’. Sorry, but it’s a fact.

Enic say so. Fact. The same soulless mugs who tried to join a super league and who would have happily furloughed our staff were it not for the media backlash. Stop sleeping.

15m for Eriksen when he could have fetched about 50 odd mill about 18 months before. That was very shrewd of him, I must say… 🤔 😂

“He has battled the likes of Harry Kane and won”? What a load of tosh. He would have sold Kane if the right offer had materialised. It didn’t and Kane still had three years left on his contract. His resume of selling all our best players does not make him a good chairman. Yes if he was running a hedge fund perhaps but not a football club that is supposed to “win” stuff. Even with property development he went way over budget on the stadium so I don’t see that as a testimony of his success

Daniel is only ever successful as a ‘tough’ negotiator when the other party hold no power in the negotiations. For example, a club needing to sell, or a player tied up in a contract.

Levy is an opportunist, not a master negotiator. Basically he gets praised for bullying when negotiating with a weaker partly. What have we won as a result of all this ‘mastermind’ type stuff? One League Cup in 22 years…

People need to start smelling the coffee about him and ENIC, why anyone would want to blow smoke up their ar*e (particularly an ex Gooner is beyond me…
