“Painful watching these 3 talk utter nonsense” Sky Sports pundits called out for ridiculous Tottenham comments
By Bruce Grove -

It has long seemed that Sky Sports and their bunch of questionable pundits have an agenda against Tottenham and yesterday went a long way to vindicating that impression.

David Ginola, Kieron Dyer and Jamie Redknapp were the pundits on duty yesterday for the Newcastle v Tottenham clash and despite Nuno Espirito Santo’s men coming away with all three points and a fairly decent performance, they still found it necessary to slam the team and to just make stuff up.

For example, Dyer claims that Spurs have £300m to spend, Redknapp reckons that Man City offered £130m for Harry Kane and generally, all three disparaged Spurs and their transfer market activities.

On one hand, they were ripping into Daniel Levy and Spurs for selling all their best players down the years and on the other hand tearing into Levy for not selling Kane.

It is well known that Redknapp is still sore that his father was sacked by Levy and Dyer just does not look like he is all there, though Ginola’s comments were a little disappointing.

Sky Sports took it upon themselves to post up a tweet of the trio’s comments and apart from other clubs fans taking an opportunity to jump on the bandwagon, the pundits were absolutely slammed by the fans.

Here are just some of the reactions to the ridiculous punditry in action yesterday.

Freedom of speech is cancelled by social media, or so they think…

Is this social media? Is that why freedom of down voting is cancelled?

Any of us might pick them up on detail, but broadly speaking I’d say what they say is right.

Pisspoor Redknapp not knowing we’d won the League Cup in 2008, but he was right on how poor some of the player recruitment has been; I’d cite the recruitment of one Jamie Redknapp as an example of that.

Can’t alter the facts of the last 23 years. Carrick, Berbatov, Modric, Bale, Walker etc. and one puny trophy. They are right about that. There is something seriously wrong with the running of the club which goes to the very top – the quickfire sackings of managers is one obvious symptom, often being the by product of lack of support in the transfer market. If you’re going to sit there and say that this summers crazy managerial search was the sign of healthy club then you are deluded.
Oh and people lets not get too carried away with a couple of wins against Villa and Newcastle. If we get a win against West Ham then that will tell us a whole lot more. Yes it’s an improvement and we’re all glad for that, but lets not go overboard just yet please. How many false dawns have we had to endure?
But I feel a lot happier now than after the Chelsea and Arsenal debacles – the team played well.

False dawns are a hallmark of Levy’s time at Spurs. In fact they are part of the business plan…

Although Jamie Redknapp is a gobby loudmouth and has an agenda against Levy for sacking his father, he has a good point. As East Stand mentions below, one trophy in 22 years is just not good enough for any CEO of a club with aspirations of regularly competing for a top four place. I cannot think of one beneficial act on the footballing front that Levy has achieved for Spurs. His efforts to portray himself as the best negotiator in the transfer world are laughable. Leaving aside his pathetic record in the transfer market, and his scatter gun approach to sacking managers, scouts and DoFs, one might also question his reputation as a hard headed businessman where he appears to have also blundered. Going double over the budget for the new stadium and delivering it one year late does not seem to me to be the actions of an astute businessman. Throwing in his attempts to furlough the staff and join the ESL do not enhance his already tarnished reputation. On thing that Jamie Redknapp was right about was that any other CEO would have been sacked or at least resigned over his track record, but Levy has no shame.

The ‘prudent’ and ‘responsible’ veneer is being stripped away to reveal the truth. Which is merely management of the fan’s expectations to align with ENIC’s business model. Which, after 23 years is impossible to defend as a means to create a successful football team.

It never has, and it never will produce any seismic progress on the pitch. The multi use entertainment’s venue will produce income but nowhere near enough. It is an ‘analog’ concept in a digital world. It was conceived 20 years ago which is why it offers no discernible income advantages over our rivals’ income streams…

I didn’t say it wasn’t going to earn, what I’m saying is is that it will not be at the levels to bridge the gap between us and the most powerful clubs in the league. The spin has always been that well, but in reality it falls woefully short.

And we might have witnessed a league title in our lifetimes, and a CL, if some additional money had been ploughed into the team at the optimum times instead of it being syphoned into the grandiose stadium project.

Where we are is in a worse place than we were before we move to the new stadium. Surely you can see the complete contradiction in that direction of travel. Right now we look miles off the top four clubs. We can only hope but they don’t make a management change at Man United, then there could be an outside chance.

I’m not convinced by Ole, either. Wonder, too, if Ronaldo will last a hectic English season though I realize he takes good care of himself.

The ESL is the ONE thing I don’t really blame Levy for; he has a duty to keep us in the vanguard of any potential developments even if, personally speaking,I have no wish to see an ESL. Everything else more or less spot on, though I think the stadium was actually THREE times over budget!

These Twitter accounts are most likely generated by the club’s social media team. Just ex pro’s giving their honest opinion, which is widely shared. If winning only one minor trophy in 23 years doesn’t put you in the firing line as owners, someone please tell me what does? Oh sorry, I forgot it’s all about not “doing a Leeds”… 🤣

£650 mil over 25 years is minor. 20 years of stadium naming rights will cover a lot of that. Stop worrying
