Watch Jamie Redknapp On Spurs, Brutally Honest, Or Just Bitter?
By Harry Hotspur -

Jamie Redknapp really let rip on Sunday, and to my mind, you can’t pick and choose who you take the truth from. For me, the Redknapp’s are a divisive pair about whom I struggle to say anything wholesome about. However, this outburst on Sky Sports was on point. As a fan, I find it frankly patronizing to be told that we are rebuilding again when previous efforts came to nought, Vast amounts have been sunk into infrastructure whilst the squad has effectively been left to rot. Under ENIC Tottenham have become a football club that fundamentally isn’t set up to win anything, which is depressing.

Jamie is talking as a fan. He wants spurs to win things and has an obvious soft spot for the club.

The fact that everyone talks about the world class stadium and training facilities. Makes it seems like THFC is a property development company, not a football club.

We as a club are being talked about like we are development partners with ENIC and Tavistock.

Jamie is just being brutally honest, and when it comes from him in this manner, clearly something is wrong.

So having the best infrastructure in the world means nothing? Come on man. You think top players don’t care about their working conditions? They do. Where they work. How much they’re getting paid and the club’s ambitions are the main three things
London carries weight too

you can have the biggest cockerel in the world but if you can’t make it cock-a-doodle do it’s rather pointless. Facilities only need to be good enough, ambitions/pay are key.

Facilities are a big thing to players. I’m telling ya. “Facilities only need to be good enough? That’s not true

Most premier league clubs facilities are good enough, it’s only if you are renting out these facilities does it matter.

Danny Rose said a few years ago that the players are being under paid for their achievements on the pitch. In comparison to what the likes of West ham and Everton were paying their players.

London carries weight. This isn’t America where teams play dictates the markets. A free agent would rather play for the knicks in New York that the suns in phoenix Arizona, even though the suns are more likely to do well in the playoffs.

If that’s the case why was Kyle Walker so keen to go back up north if London carries weight. Why Kane who I used play against when he was at Ridgeway rovers, (I played for Gladstone rangers we were based in Edmonton at Houndsfield school then behind Enfield college) wanted so badly to go to Manchester, when he’s whole life is based around London. If you can’t work that one out then there’s no hope for you. I left London, in fact I left England to move back home to Ireland because there is no attraction for me or my family to stay.

What is the clubs ambition. What is the ambition of Levy and Lewis. From where I’m sitting its not winning titles.

You can work in the best facilities in the world. But if your boss keeps annoying you, you are not staying in that job regardless of the facilities. People don’t leave bad jobs, they leave bad managers.

Because they should be begging Levy to hire them because of the stadium and the training ground.

But no one came, because ENIC are bad owners who no one wants to work for, that’s why no world class manager jumped at the chance to manage us.

Have you heard any ex manager since ENIC took over praise them and say it was a pleasure to work under them.

Now we’ve had:

1. George Graham
2. Glenn Hordle
3. Jacques Santini
4. Martin Jol
5. Juande Ramos
6. Harry Redknapp
7. AVB
8. Tim Sherwood
9. Mauricio Pochettino
10. Jose Mourinho
11. David Pleat (caretaker roles twice for ENIC)

Now thats on average a manager every 2 seasons and 1 trophy. Chelsea can get away with it because they spend on the first team and constantly win.

You can’t ignore the obvious. Under investment, lack of ambition, cheapskate transfers, rotating door of managers who weren’t supported in the transfer market etc. It all adds up to 20 odd years with virtually no success despite having top players and managers. Is it all some coincidence? Of course it isn’t, it all comes down to our owners not giving 2 hoots as long as the investment company makes a big profit.
It will be interesting to see if more money is spent on the squad once takings come back after covid. Make no mistake with just a few signings of quality and a stronger bench we could still challenge again one day.

We ain’t far off. I still think we need a winning young manager to take us where we want to go. A few more quality players too. You see when we get to the top we’ll be staying there. Tottenham will be peps first London club

It’s always been a few more quality players though, need about 18 at a good stage of there careers at the same time, which is easier said than done especially if you penny pinch.

Squads are a thing but most winning teams regular use about 18 players in a squad

You cannot hide the truth forever +20 years is too long to deceive people no one can defend Enic/Levy fraud when it comes to football side of the club unless you are in their payroll.

Whatever personal axe he may have to grind and regardless of his ‘rent-a-mouth’ persona, Redknapp is correct when it comes to Levy and ENIC’s modus operandae. The £15 mill per season net spend for the last 10 years tells the story. The typical transfer window PR spin, the endless big name associations, the last minute offers that in reality are designed to fail, are all part of a carefully calculated plan to keep the ‘mug punters’ onside, whilst pocketing monies that should be invested in the team.

In reality chronic under-investment in the team is the true narrative. ENIC are first and foremost a property investment outfit. The football club is entirely secondary. The principals of ENIC have never invested a penny of their own money in the club and have no intentions of ever doing so. They are solely interested in Champions League participation revenue, as in their eyes actually winning trophies would cost too much money in player investment and wages for too little financial reward.

However, in order to obfuscate this hidden agenda from a largely gullible season-ticket purchasing segment of the fan base, ENIC indulge in this seasonal charade whereby an enthusiastic player acquisition narrative is broadly promoted, via willing accomplices in the media. The end result however is always underwhelming, characterised by associations with a host of big name/star players, but in reality ultimately purchasing inferior substitutes/promising youngsters. Rinse and repeat, the ENIC way!

So ENIC nick all the CL money? If you say so. Gosh
Fans are gullible are they? Because ENIC have turned you against your club it doesn’t mean it has everybody.

No, ENIC have not turned me against the club, I have been a diehard supporter for 60 years, long before ENIC’s parasitical tenure and hopefully for some time left after we are finally relieved of their ownership.

However what you seem oblivious to Tapps, is that ENIC (Lewis and Levy) are running the club solely for their own financial benefit and ultimately when the club is sold they will drain as much profit out of it as they can possibly manage to negotiate.

And what can I do about that? I stopped throwing stones at tanks ages ago. Yes they gonna make a killing when they do sell up but all our infrastructure will still be ours
I can’t understand people wanting us to lose games and those who have stopped buying their kids merch and not taking them to games coz of levy
Kids don’t care about politics
As I’ve said already “I’m not gonna stop loving my wife coz my in-laws are rubbish. Me love my wife more than I hate them.

“Oblivious re what’s going on at my club? I’m right up in it bruva. I know quite a lot
Hatred towards levy. I can’t hate him like some of you lot coz he’s done some brilliant things for some charities I’m involved with. Also when we link at that Italian place in Bruce grove levy always pays. He always asks me how broardwater fc are doing and how’s clasford. He fkin hates Haringey council😂😂

Tottenham are about to take another one of us. Romanian boy. Hagi I call him. Proper two footed player that wants to be a keeper. Its a waste. Classford and them have tried talking to him but he’s determined to be a keeper. Good keeper dont get me wrong (sweeper keeper) he’s too good a baller to be a keeper. Hopefully tottenham can change his mind

Like his dad he has verbal diarrhoea. Talks for the sake of it most of the time. But ! This time he’s bang on. Interesting Ginola also piped up about the real estate side of things over players. Seems the world has finally woken up to Levy and his shenanigans.
