Wholly depressing stuff from Charlie Eccleshare for The Athletic today which regrettably sounds all too familiar. Par for the course. Plus ça change, eh?
The Millennial Tottenham fans amongst us will rationalize it though, fear not. In Levy, we trust. Advanced loser think capsules are freely available from reception.
Quite how these already tired looking negotiations progress is anyone’s business. It’s not unusual for internal discussions at Spurs to be prolonged, however, leaks happen for a reason. They occur in all walks of life, and are not unique to football. They are positive things, otherwise dark guano builds up.
£15,000 a week for a top flight Premier League player simply isn’t enough. If it is anything, it’s a poorly veiled effort to coerce the player in question to move along.
This is precisely the kind of no-good mucking about that perpetuates Tottenham’s bad name when it comes to looking after players.
Japhet has been with us since he was a child. What sort of arrogance might Levy have, to believe Tanganga will still respect this club? I’m at a loss.
