“It is only a question of when…” This Fan Makes A Chilling Prediction For Tottenham This Season
By Harry Hotspur -
My thanks to Marbella Spur 👊

I will not bore you with all the mistakes that Levy has made in his 22-year-old tenure as the chairman of a make-believe football club, as they are too numerous to mention and have been well documented on this site. Instead, I am going to make what I hope are some relevant points.

  1. Why was Nuno hired? He was effectively sacked by Wolves for playing boring and ultimately losing football. Why did the board think that he would be a success at Spurs after his failings at Wolves? He already looks like a broken man and will be inevitably sacked, it is only a question of when.
  2. Although I have little time for Mourinho, he was sacked six days before a cup final to save on compensation pay. On his CV, it will probably read that the only club he failed at was Spurs. A sad indictment of a great manager, but an even more sad indictment of the state of our football club.
  3. I said at the time that not selling Kane would be a mistake, but Levy’s mistakes in the transfer market are too numerous to list. We now have a clearly unhappy player on our books who will start to rapidly lose his transfer value This pathetic bleat from the MM and Levy apologists that he stood up to and saw off the oil-rich Arabs at City is a total myth and will prove to be an absolute disaster.
  4. A proper football club would have taken advantage of the weak financial position amongst the major European football clubs by recruiting the best players in Europe at severely depleted prices. Instead of doing this, Levy has hired Paratici whose contract was not renewed at Juventus, and we have reverted to type by buying players with potential or players that were just cheap. Paratici will go the same way as Nuno.

Why was Nuno hired ?. Because nobody else wanted the job and, very likely, nobody else wanted Levy’s interference as well.

I’d wager we reached a tipping point and had no other choice but to approach Jorge Mendes to make something happen.

And using the point that Paratici’s “contract wasn’t renewed” as some kind of indicator that he’s no good is unfair IMO. He’d been at Juventus for over a decade and is largely credited with bringing Ronaldo to the club so there could have been a dozen reasons why they didn’t renew it.

But then, if you think about it, it’s a stroke of (evil) genius from Levy. Hiring Paratici allows him to give the public impression that he’s stepped back from footballing matters as he’s likely aware of how much the fans hate him, but it also insulates him against any backlash if things do go badly wrong.

On the whole Spurs fans are being very good about Nuno very little knee jerk reactions probably due to him being the 8th choice and reports say even Levy didnt want him.
He just has to get our m/f firing otherwise we could go down in history as the lowest scoring Spurs team (PL).
1 open play
1 pen.
1 freak

So Don Paratici – where is our creative m/f play coming from (not Dele for sure).

I have been a Spurs supporter for 60 years unfortunately(fortunately) I live abroad now but I get to watch every Spurs match on TV (when I don’t turn off in disgust) what I see is no passion, no understanding of the game,no movement,skill or anyone who can pass the ball forward and of course no leadership at any level.There are at least 15 first team players that are not good enough for the premier league and a couple I give the benefit of the doubt because they are new.
This team? has relegation written all over it and a coach who gives a good impression of a rabbit in headlights and I think that Paratici was a mistake also. Every transfer window is the same thoughtless waste of money on semi-skilled employees, that’s what football players are employees and it’s time they earned the huge amounts cash given them.
This abysmal situation comes from the top and 20 odd years of “never mind the quality feel the width” ENIC has a lot to answer for.
As a kid I used to cry when Spurs lost but with this lot it’s wailing and the gnashing of teeth.

Harry in your opinion who was brought at these extremely discounted prices ????

And don`t ban me for asking the question, it is because I am not sure what top players were sold at depleted prices

Off the top of my head, Tomori £24 million Chelsea, Eric Garcia to Barcelona free, Wijnaldum to Barcelona free, Tom Heaton to Man Utd free, Soumare to Leicester £17 million, Aguero to Barcelona free, Joachim Andersen £14 million, Varane to Man Utd £34 million, Tammy Abraham to Milan £34 million, Odegaard to Arsenal £30 million Ramsdale to Man United £24 million, and a decent back up to Harry Kane Odsonne Edouard to Crystal Palace £14 million.

Sorry to pick you up on this but I thought Wijnaldum went to PSG. Poch had wanted to sign him for Spurs when he was at Newcastle. Levy bought Sissoko instead. Edouard would have been a decent and inexpensive back up to Kane.

you have simply quoted player transfers, half of them would not come to Spurs with no CL as you well know or at least Europa league

Also if we signed Edouard to sit on the bench, you know as well as i do they are all good until you watch them every week

Your bang on! In the summer I wrote a email to Mr Levy, begging him not to hire Nuno! This was a few days before they hired him.
I had mentioned to him that he had already endured the backlash of the super league and also the fiasco of trying to get a new head coach.
Nuno is firstly out of his depth! You just have to see his body language in press conferences.
Secondly, I’ve seen more passion in a coma! He is absolutely shocking when it comes to inspiration, it’s ok hugging and high-fiving the coaching staff, what about the players? And the state of play.
The moment they hired the yes man, this season was finished before it started. Something stinks, Big time! From promising attacking football to this, also hiring paratici, just because he had success with juventus, their style of football was hardly expansive, yet levy was saying the opposite, proper mess.

As long as we don’t turn to Poch again, that would be yet another mistake !

Why do you say that ????

worked wonders with an average squad, knows the club more importantly ENIC, and plays the type of football that filled Wembley more or less week in and week out

Because it doesn’t matter who the manager is, you will not have consistent success without consistent appropriate spending on the team.

You might have temporary success like Harry Redknapp and Poch but it won’t last because the funding is not there.

It was a better squad than you give it credit for with players in their prime, that should have won at least a trophy, he did well no doubt, but he had enough time and chances to achieve silverware and failed. I doubt he could improve our situation now, for me the club needs a complete overhaul and that is starting at boardroom level.

Poch created that squad, with a relatively small budget, he shifted 6 of them so called magnificent 7 out and brought in cheap players who done very well
under him

Dele Dier Toby |Rose Walker Dmebele performed under Poch in a way we had not seen and as for winning trophies
I think he worked wonders with an average squad
I travelled to wembley for 2 years watching the best football i g=had seen for many years

This is it, it is good as you’re going to get with these owners. Poch found a way of working with younger more cheaply obtained players and as you say got rid of all the dross we hoovered up after Bale leaving.

He should’ve been allowed to rebuild, in fact he should’ve been backed properly in the first place with the kind of transfer policy that Mitchell wanted. The problem we have here is that the bald one seems to think he knows more about football and anyone else.

i’m not the only one that predicted that we would descend into chaos if he was allowed to leave. This is because Levy has no plan as far as the football is concerned, to remove the manager who worked with us for five years and had a way of working that brought relative success on a paltry budget was bonkers.

Even if you want to look at it cynically, in financial terms and the ‘bang for your buck’ you get keeping him on, the decision made no sense at all.

All of this must be on Levy, he is an insufferable micromanager and is no longer fit for purpose. If he ever was…

Never was fit for purpose, Eastie, and, yes, I imagine this is as good as it will get as we arrive full circle to where we were when ENIC came in! They missed the boat with the opportunity that had been there under Poch, by not backing him so that he could put the finishing touches to his team, and at a time when the leading lights were often vulnerable (Leicester City, an unfashionable club, helped in their title winning season, admittedly, by a light programme were able to take advantage of this situation while we missed out and continued to miss out)

Then it became apparent in 2019 that we were running on near empty, despite riding our luck and reaching the CL final, and that we needed some rebuilding. There has been no serious rebuilding and we have dropped seriously off the pace and are faced now with a much bigger task on our hands to get return to the top. Of course, thanks to the money wasted on the stadium, which so far only seems to exist to make the money to pay for it, we haven’t sufficient funds (without going into even further debt) to pay for the necessary improvements to the playing side.

Meanwhile our genius of a CEO, who got us into this mess, still seems to think there is a manager out there who, with the current tired squad, can make a silk purse out of what is actually a sow’s ear and who continues to slow down the whole process of rebuilding by holding onto our deadwood while he tries to get ridiculously inflated fees for this dross. Spurs are back in the pack and perhaps finished as a major club, murdered by messieurs Levy and Lewis.

You may think my last comment above an exaggeration, and I am speaking relatively, but remember Aston Villa were once the greatest club in the country, a club so revered that Burnley and West Ham chose their colours, but in the past 100 years have managed to win the league just once and the FA Cup just once. When Newcastle won the FA Cup in 1955, they had won as many league titles and FA Cups as Liverpool and Man Utd combined! And when I started following football in 1964, Everton had won more trophies than their red neighbours, who had yet to win the FA Cup!

Agree totally. Poch worked wonders with an arm tied behind his back. Even endured two windows without a signing.

I like Potter then Rodgers who are both good man managers, which I think we need.

Ultimately, NO manager can succeed with the footballing idiot that is Levy behind them.
