Levy Apologists Look Away Now As Harry Kane Says “There is some positives there, but my profession is about winning”| video

By Harry Hotspur -

Once we get over the rather unnerving business of how Harry rests his putter when in conversation, there is something even darker for Tottenham fans to consider in this interview with the sainted Gary Neville; which is the fact that Kane is not the lucky local boy that some have tried to pass him off as. He wants more than Spurs have offered him to date.

Make no mistake, Sky got wind of this interview and that is where the player ‘reiterated’ his desire to leave Spurs came from.

Worry, or not a worry? If I were running Spurs I’d be relatively terrified.

It would be like Campbell. Some players just cannot sign for a certain team and I sincerely hope Kane knows that. It certainly wouldn’t be worth the extra £30m that another team would offer, but Levy does need the money.

Agreed, but it has been on the cards for years. We might not like it, but it is not a surprise.

I wonder if cancelling the wearing of the new kit was down to Kane as well, can’t have your most marketable asset seen in a kit they won’t be wearing in a few weeks time.

Allegedly we were never in for Allegri due to his struggles with the English language and footballing style.

I think Maureen would have been promised some money with us. But then Covid hit changing the financial landscape.. Roma have recently been taken over by a new billionaire owner so I expect he will have money to spend there.

Yet persistent with Dier, Winks and Dele.. I see a boy walking, talking and managing us and he’s clearly clueless. Bringing on Docherty a like for like injury with little time left infuriated me. We needed goals. Be brave and bring an attacker on. No savvy. New manager needed desperately and Bale has to go home now.The circus has to finish.

Very true I’ve said the same myself. 3 finals and Kane went missing, barely had a shot on goal in any of them. The big players turn up in the big games. He’s been a brilliant servant but nobody is bigger than the club. Unfortunately what we’re left with is not the club I grew up supporting. Whoever comes in, be it Rodgers or someone else, no matter how good a manager they are they’re f*cked while Enic are running things. Good luck to Harry Kane, can’t begrudge him a few winners medals, just a crying shame it won’t be with us 😔

Yes mate, that was the word on this blog too. Gio and Ndombele were Poch targets.

I think our club vice captain needs to take a portion of responsibility, let’s be truthful, it isn’t as if we haven’t been anywhere close to winning a trophy. Lets look at HK’s personal record and contribution.

14/15 – LC Final – 0 Goals.
16/17 – FA Cup Semi-Final – 1 Goal
17/18 – FA Cup Semi-Final – 0 Goals
18/19 – CL Final – 0 Goals
20/21 – LC Final – 0 Goals

In isolation, does anyone remember Kane going through a patch of 1 goal in 5? For a truly elite and ambitious player (that he undoubtedly is) his record when it counts it abysmal.

I want to stress that by no means is any of it solely down to him, but he wants to be compared to Messi and Ronaldo, those players single handedly win games and trophies for club and country. You talk about matching ambitions but based on the above we have gone deep into at least 1 competition consistently every year (couple with 2nd place finish in the league and 2016 when we could and should have won it) and the players – Kane included, has failed to deliver.

He might be hurt and upset that he hasn’t won anything, how does he think we feel.

Extremely bad and unprofessional timing too from the agents leak and Kane.. This should all be happening AFTER the seasons finished. This has affected our players heads and performance and we were/are still fighting to get in Europe. Not in the best interests of the club at all.

Levy is apparently bullish on the matter. I hope he stands his ground. If City get him then it’s game over, pure dominance.

I made that point some time ago on another fan forum and was told by an ITK that in fact Poch wanted GLC while Levy wanted Fernandes. I had always felt that we got GLC because he was the cheaper option – but apparently that was not the reason.

City in the 90s, feed the goat and he will score.. We are a century off City now. Their current players have won more than Spurs have won in over a hundred years our whole history.. And Levy claims he’s made the club bigger! Failing to elaborate further… We are in the mould of Newcastle. Kane leaving and the likes of Ings and Bamford touted as replacements is soul destroying.

As Stevie G infamously said, it means 100 times more to lift a trophy for your own club, for your own fans. Kane has been in three finals and he bottled each one failing to do his job. All Spurs legends have won something, if he deserts us now then it will tarnish his Spurs legacy no doubt.. He claims to love Spurs but you don’t leave your true love… If he wants to go then sell abroad. Sir Alex never sold a top player to a rival. Strengthening City or United who are already stronger while weakening us is a no go if we are serious about competing. I hope the Bald one stands his ground on this… In an ideal world ENIC would do all they can to keep him, with a decent manager coming and investment in the team to build around him.. If only.

Kane wants to be the best, but the best do not play in the Europa League or the third European tier which will be full of Eastern European teams that even the most die football nerds will never have heard of them. Top players don’t play in teams that regularly fail to beat lower ranked opposition either. Kane deserves better, has done for two years now.

I am thankful Kane stayed with us, but partly embarrassed for him, for he could well have fulfilled his footballing ambitions already if he had an ounce of foresight. Replacing Walker with a terrible player, who some still have the time of day for, and not replacing Dembele at all should have set Kane’s alarm bells off. Watching a £60m footballer not able to last 90 minutes, but do two fancy turns a game should have shown him the level of player we are now attracting. 2 seasons Ndombele has waddled around the pitch like a journeyman pro in the last year of his last contract, but the man gets called a ‘baller’ by all and sundry. We’ve paid him £22m (give or take a guinea or two) to deliver very little. Kane didn’t need a ‘spidey sense’ to realise something was very wrong at a club that cannot even get a naming rights deal done!

The irritating thing about all of this is Kane can get out and fulfil his dreams whilst we are left to wallow in our own self pity. Some teams move on when star players leave (Utd and Ronaldo, Chelsea and Hazard, Liverpool and Coutinho), but losing Kane cannot be a good thing, not with Levy and Hitchen being ‘responsible’ for bringing in replacements. Who is going to lead this sorry bunch of misfits too, Dier? Give me strength.

I trust in the next 10 years we might recover some pride at being a Spurs fan, who knows what is going to happen, but the damage this transfer will do will take a few years to repair. Hopefully, Levy will fall on his sword (It is the only hope I have left) and we get a CEO who knows the shape of a football. We are 5 years behind City according to Ryan Mason, but without Kane we are like City in the 90s. If the right players with the right attitude are not brought in we will become another Newcastle.

Sound to me like he’s made his mind up, Levy would need to pull some rabbit out the hat to convince Harry that he’ll be playing in those big games again any time soon – I mean like a top class manager and a £300m transfer kitty.

Neither of which are looking likely as of today.

That’s fair. Poch wanted Fernandes and obviously he’s far superior to Ndombele. Levy never learns. He didn’t learn from the Suarez fiasco and he won’t get it ever

Spot on, this lie about striving to put together a great team in his statement yesterday, is just totally unacceptable. He should step down and pay back that 2m stadium completion bonus he paid himself while he’s at it too.

I reckon Poch would also have done wonders with the players you mention. The poor sod never got time to rebuild the side.

I would venture that both are the sort of players who would shine wherever they went.

I am not defending Levy – even though it may sound like it – but do we know for sure that Dybala and Skriniar would be a success in the Prem? Football transfers are easy with hindsight. Many of us were excited by the signing of Ndombele, but I think it fair to say he hasn’t had the impact for us we hoped.

So it’s rumoured Allegri rejected the bald ones advances, because of potentially the RM job. Yet again (if true) we’ve levy dawdling on getting people again.

Don’t forget Dybala, Skriniar and last summer Ollie Watkins to name but a few. Levy repeatedly ignores players who would take us to the next level to buy cheap junk. He is a cheapskate and a charlatan charging the fans for cake whilst giving them stale bread.

i am sure Jose knew about Levy he’s a smart cookie. But he was not exactly inundated with offers and 15million is not to be sneezed at.
Again personally I am delighted he has got a new project and hope he is a success but it does reflect the more straitened circumstances he finds himself in. Roma and Tottenham are not the sort of clubs he would have considered in his pomp

Winning. At his level he should be. He’s out grown the shysters and losers that threw the Europa League away. He has my blessings and I will congratulate the man and raise a beer when he wins his first winners medal.

Under ENIC.FC he wont achieve his dreams sadly.

I’m not so sure, money talks, and Brendan is very ambitious, me and you wouldn’t touch it but these super managers have egos to match and think they can do anything

Do you think Mourinho wasn’t well warned about Levy before taking the job, it didn’t stop him though.

What is even more interesting is the timing of the release of this video the day after the last home match.Am I being cynical to think that THFC held its release back in order that its content didn’t scupper the fans attendance for £60 per head. This stinks of yet another Levy and ENIC manipulation of the fans wallets. It also indicates that Kane’s departure had been well known at the club for a long time and that may account for the loss of interest most players have shown and especially Sonny and Ndombele.

It’s impossible to defend Levy at this point. He had every chance to bring in the right players. We could’ve had Ruben Dias, Bruno Fernandes and Jack Grealish. With Mourinho as manager. Just imagine. Instead we’re losing our best player and will probably get a company man as “head coach”. Levy is a joke

If Rodgers stood by his principles at Celtic not buying McGinn,then i can’t see him even bothering with levy’s transfer nonsense.

Amazing Jeff, that our footballing genius of a chairman didn’t see this coming. A man with his finger on the pulse of everything from ordering tea bags for the canteen to player acquisition and new stadium build, let this one pass him by.

Any ordinary football could have told Spurs or anybody that would listen about Grealish and Maginn.

Celtic wouldn’t pay Hibernian £3 million for John Maginn and that’s one of the reasons Brendan Rodgers left Celtic.

Instead you have dumbf*”s like Hitchout scouting.

I enjoyed watching Villa since before they came up. Of course I raved about McGinn for 3 years plus….Dean Smith is a good shout for manager in fact, but I wouldn’t wish the job on anyone who lives and breaths football. It’s just cruel.

Just on 5Live news, Harry is looking forward to having a meaningful conversation with the Tottenham chairman.

Oh I love that phrase, “a meaningful conversation”, I just love it, right out of the Levy Corporate PR bull sh*t playbook.

Fair play to you Harry, you’re learning. Fight fire with fire. Daniel if you’re listening, small chance I think, I’ll decode that phrase, “a meaningful conversation” for you.

It’s Harry Kane saying, so long me old cock sparrer, I’m off, adios, auf wiedersehn, goodnight and good luck.
