Poor finances will force Tottenham to sell in the summer even if they make the Champions League
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham has some top quality players in their squad and has had it that way for a very long time.

The Lilywhites have the likes of Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, players that other top teams would be glad to steal from them.

In their bid to win trophies and remain within the circle of top European teams, Spurs have kept hold of those stars.

But these are trying times in the world of football after the coronavirus pandemic has wiped off so much money from the finances of teams.

Spurs are expecting to lose around £150million if fans remain away from the stadiums this season, a prediction Daniel Levy made in their last financial report.

With that in mind and no naming rights for their stadium yet, Spurs are inevitably going to sell one of their top players in the summer.

This revelation comes from Football Insider who adds that it would still happen even if they finish inside the top four and secure a Champions League return.

Kane and Son are two of the biggest stars at the club, but they are also the driving force of their recent successes.

Fans will pray none of both players leaves. They could also sell Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli if better offers come, but none would fetch the same money as either attacker.

I tell you what’s hilarious.

It’s ME deleting his posts because he’s not Japanese, he’s a white boy from a southern Uni who is currently on his 3rd fake account.

Hope that’s GDPR-compliant?

Kane’s problem is not that he is made of glass. His problem is that he plays too much football. He shouldn’t be playing at all group stage Europa, or any stage except the final of the FA cup and Mickey Mouse Cup. However, we don’t have a good enough back-up for him and haven’t had for years so he plays too much and gets wear and tear injuries which get worse and worse each season as he body isn’t given the time it needs to recover between games and even seasons thanks to internationals and Covid.

There is no way we would sell Kane for under 150m. And it would be a huge mistake to even sell him for that to ManU.

Bringing in this manager was a big mistake for one main reason – at every club he has had huge investment made in him which is why he has succeeded. Why even bring him in if we were not going to back him to the amount he needs to succeed and give him the time needed to get the team playing his style. Now we are seeing (and most people suspected) that without investment of the level he demands you get a mid-table finish and then likely have to sack him.

We had a chance to re-invest in this team which Poch was still in charge and it was never going to be cheaper or more effective to replace Poch who did wonders papering over the obvious cracks in the squad.

Replacing managers again and again without addressing the squad deficiencies doesn’t work. On top of that each new manager needs 18 months to get the team playing the way they want.

Jose is up against it, the squad is stale, but it’s been stale for several seasons. Jose is experiencing the same malaise that led to the decline in form towards the end under Poch.

Not backing Poch and bringing in another manager has achieved the square route of naff all. Doesn’t matter who the manager is, the problems come from the top. Yes, backing Poch probably would have been the most sensible option because here we are a year or so after he left the building we are still in decline.

PSG smashing Barca in the Champion’s League tonight by the way…

I don’t think City need Harry Kane, they’re doing fairly well without him and the system they play doesn’t require a traditional centre forward.

In fact if they brought him into the side they’d have to change a style that is sweeping all before it.
