Spurs Even Took The Good Out Of A Free Pint| image

By Harry Hotspur -

In the episode of Porridge New Faces, Old Hands there was a classic line where Norman Stanley Fletcher is participating in a medical at Slade Prison.

Doctor:
Can you fill that up for me?

Fletcher:
What, from here?

Ian La Frenais and Dick Clement were seriously tickled by this joke as they used more or less exactly the same lines in an episode of Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads? And again in their contribution to the script of one of the James Bond films, Never Say Never Again.

At the Aston Villa game, it appears someone had good aim.

In today’s Daily Briefing 👇 I touch on the misery of a badly presented pint, plus one or two other matters. If someone presented me with any of those flat abominations, I’d immediately know how little was thought of me, and I’d walk out, what a disgraceful way to carry on.

They say the devil is in the detail and these details shout out very loudly and clearly that there is no soul in this club.You look at the sense of family that Leicester appear to have and how that seems to run through the club from its owners , the supporters to the players on the pitch. That lack of oneness is so obviously missing at THFC. Pochettino managed to create that sense of togetherness within the playing staff for a few seasons but inevitably that dissipated over time as there was no link between that and the ownership, ENIC and Levy are so disconnected from a sense of oneness with the supporters and players at the club and it has created a toxic and fractured sense of team spirit that shows again and again with the players lack of desire and energy on the pitch. Even when we score the celebrations within the team are muted and detached in comparison with the players from most other sides I have seen this season. This blog has consistently echoed this disconnect. ENIC I am sure have been aware. In my opinion they felt they could separate the clubs dependency on its supporters income streams by creating a multiplex revenue events arena with a dominant NFL presence. Unfortunately for ENIC along comes the pandemic that broadsides their vision and sinks the first attempt to float the football club away on the good ship ESL which would have guaranteed ENIC the revenue they needed without the “legacy fans” involvement. This would have enabled them to then focus on building the NFL agenda alongside concerts and all other things non football related until such time that they could exit with a massive return leaving new owners to continue to develop non football related activities whilst THFC made up the numbers in the ESL.Recent weeks have allowed the legacy fans to look up the skirt of ENIC and see clearly that the disease that looks back at them is terminal and cannot be cured unless it is cut away completely.No amount of flag waving, fan protesting or club supporters advisory panel film flam is going to make any tangible difference. The real and only power the supporters have at this present moment is to use the power of their wallets and their feet to boycott games and not renew season tickets or spend on merchandise. Without European football and perhaps Kane and Son, no worthwhile sponsors will be interested in being associated with the toxicity of the THFC brand. If in addition the fans close their wallets it may just tip Uncle Joe out of his comatose slumber and get him to pull the plug on the venture and Levy.

Of course the hilarious case of the demanding of flags to be taken down but having Hugo Boss the famous Nazi draped over the whole stadium can’t be ignored….

Classic ENIC fc😖

It looks like the dregs from the last night’s executive party trays.

Those beers are as flat as a plate of stale p*ss, much like the team

I’d guess a good pint of Guinness would be hard to find then.
