Welcome to Tottenham Where Ambition and Investment are Lacking In Equal Measure – opinion
By Harry Hotspur -
My thanks to our very own LegOverLass

Looking at the All or Nothing (so it’s nothing then) videos this is a club built on smoke and mirrors. All the fancy surroundings, high tech equipment, corporate infrastructure …is just cosmetic.

Underneath the fabric of the enterprise is the knowledge by all involved that this club will never win anything of any substance or have consistent success on the football pitch because there is simply no “Investment” to reach that position.

The manager knows it, the staff know it and most damagingly the players know it. The huffing and puffing by Levy and Hitchen amounts to no more than filibustering. The devil is in the detail. The killer comments by both of these two is “we have a budget”. It is the scale and size of that budget that is the essence of all that is wrong at the club.

The top clubs above us have budgets of a size that meets the need of clubs looking to succeed at the highest levels of the game. ENIC and Levy limit any aspiration of real success by determining a budget that is the equivalent of handcuffs and a straightjacket and makes it impossible to build a squad that will achieve anything of note.

All our best players who have left over the years have done so because of this lack of ambition and investment. Listening to Kane’s comments at 27 years of age he will absolutely be gone at the end of what promises to be another season of failure. Eriksen left because he was 27 years of age and could see that he had next to no chance of winning anything at this club. Until ENIC leave, nothing will change.

I agree to a point about only 7 clubs etc but premier league started in 1992 , so no title in 30 years before & 30 years after. With so much talent at times but never buying what was missing to mould a title team. Even Bill takes some blame as do Burky & others. Terry Venables was on cusp of a top side & Sugar sacked him. Early 80s no centre back ( we were linked with Butcher, Mcleish, Levein & midfield bulldog. What was hard. We spent money like water in 80s but only on attackers

Liverpool also went 30 years without the title,and they do know how to run a club and have Ambition in abundance,Enic started off from further down with a club who hadn’t won the title in 40 years with less support in mid table and have only been there 20 years.

He waffles on with far too much rubbish for me, takes ages to get to his points and his voice gets under my skin. 😆.. His recent youtube videos are 45 minutes odd long with alot of rambling… I last about 5 minutes and learn nothing, his opinions are on and off in my opinion.. He is an avid spurs fan and quick to report news so fair shout to him.. He’s similar to Chris Cowin (the english poch lookalike).. Never really learn much from these two that isn’t already in mainstream media.. Nice guys though.. The Boys descriptions and dissections of the madness I find much more accurate and informative.

100% agree with this artical
NO ambition for the team will be all about how much Lewis n levy can get for hole package.
Jose can ask for who he likes if more than 1 team go for that player we aint getting them and supporter manager and player know it!!!
If we really want Bale here’s the deal ::
20mil sign off fee madrid
20mil sign on fee spurs
That’s 10mil above what 2yrs money at Madrid is
Off load ndomabaly 45mil that gives s
purs 45mil for centre back and centre forward.!!!
Frees up250k/week of wasted money on ndomabaly add 50k/wek to it for bales wages. Levy get most back in bums on seats and shirt sales!!! DONE DEAL.
IF LEVY THINKS THAT’S HARD SHALL I TAKE OVER TRANSFER DEALS!!!!

I started to watch episode four and had to turn off immediately.. Levy giving a staff christmas speech and tells everyone that for his christmas present he wants top four, and then adds ‘and some silverware’….. Priorities…. I watched the Sunderland doc on netflix when they were relegated. Now that was a proper documentary. Warts and all…….. All or nothing is so heavily edited by scrooge it’s astonishing all the rubbish on there.. And he still manages to make a tw@t of himself in every episode.

Yeah, this is the 2nd year we are going into the season with one striker, no other club in the top two English divisions would do this. It’s neglect and Levy has to be replaced by someone who can manage a football club.

Loved this blog from Legover when he first posted it up. Hits the nail on the head.

The mugs won’t listen though, how can the penny not have dropped for those people?! It’s flipping comedic! 😂

I’d love to enjoy the team but I would like to see great stuff in future as well as now when those 2 sell up.
Then we can hope whoever buys us has our ambition!!!

Wouldn’t we all. So you’re not gonna get behind the club fully till this happens? If things are as bad as you think they are don’t you think this is when fans are needed the most? Bad times? Its not bad times though. Futures bright. Plus. If another tight khunt buys us?

Let’s talk about the future Dave. How strong do you think we’ll be this time next year? (3 José windows) I think we’ll be very very strong. Or don’t you think we will be coz Joe’s gonna nick all our dough?

I have been saying that for years Levy reminds me of Doctor Evil. Lack of ambition shown the year we made champions League final papering over it. When Enic Arrived they were talks about Joe Lewis Bring In Ronaldo what a joke.No teams win with one striker in there squad Son, Bejiwin & Moura are wingers and not centre forwards Janssen and Llorente to just depending on Kane sods law states that Kane would get any injury as he was tempting fate. Aston Villa, Newcastle Chelsea, Everton have all shown lack of ambition then us. Mourinho was the manager he want all along and he still doesn’t back him in the market basically tied Mourinho’s hands and left us with false aspirations.

This window’s outcome will haunt Levy if it goes wrong – the flannel is 20 years old and those that still believe are now too afraid/ashamed to post online any more.

Kane was slogging about this evening for England, burning more miles off his physical clock.

This is, Mourinho isn’t going to sit in pressers and wheel out the ‘bery happy’ line. The Amazon doc time codes him alerting Hitchen and Levy. We never had that with Poch until it was game over, and he admitted he had nothing to do with recruitment.

To think of the assorted weirdos that used to post on here telling me every week that the manager was ‘part of the process’!

A Villa are only spending money buying players to avoid relegation next season.Newcastle likewise trying to stay in the PL and if they’re lucky get in the top ten.Everton have spent £380m in the last four seasons trying to get in the top six,and this season more of the same.Chelsea had money after being banned and selling Hazard & Morata for £150m.In 28 years of the PL, up until Leicester won it ,only 5 teams had been successful,i don’t know where Blackburn are now? Leicester became the sixth and now after thirty years since last being champions Liverpool become the seventh.Seven teams have managed it out of the 49 that have competed in it. That means 29 teams who played in the PL are no longer there most of them probably spent more than Spurs,who in the last 20 years have changed from being seen as a mid table side to a team that is disappointed not finishing in the top four. Finishing in the top four on a regular basis in recent times has been done while also competing in the CL something only achieved 5 times all under the current regime in near 60 years,this has also been done against the backdrop of demolishing an ageing 36,000 capacity WHL stadium,playing home games away at Wembley and replacing it with a state of the art 62.000 seater arena.Leicester have proved a well run club who scout well and sell high whilst reinvesting can be every bit as ambitious and successful as the clubs spending hundreds of millions with no chance of winning.Runner up in the PL & CL,Imo if Spurs had Jose on those occasions we would have won both with his winning mentality getting us over the line.

What scouting we sent scouts out so what are they doing.Leicester shopped around looked at players and recruited players with Potential such as Kante, Madison, Gray, Wilfrid, Mahrez what have Tottenham done to that excent you don’t have to pay the earth for players if you shop in the right market, No team in world football goes unprepared or arrogantly for a season reling on one out an out centre forward. The truth is painful as I have supported Tottenham since the days of Linker Mabutt Stewart, Big Eric Edinburgh but it was sods law that something had to happen to Harry for them to understand the situation. Lack of ambition Chelsea embargo meant they were forced to not buy Players What is Levy’s Excuse but lack of ambition.To cap it of Levy wanted Mourinho after he left Porto and still refuses to back him. If you don’t believe it The reason we had AVB was he was the next best thing Mourinho.

Did you mean the late Justin Edinburgh? Back to the topic of scouting, A few we have signed and done well on to consider.Walker cost £3m sold for £45m,Modric cost £16m sold for£30m,Berbatov cost £11m sold for £30m,Bale cost £6m sold for £91m,Trippier cost £3.5m sold for £20m. Other good finds Rose £1m,Lloris £12m,Eriksen £11m,Dier £4m,Dele £5m,Vertonghen £10m,Alderweirld £11.5m. The scouting has been terrible in the last few seasons,

but in the past we have found a few gems.I will inc Hojbjerg & Doherty as great deals as well even before the season kicks off.

To be fair I was on another Forum when they took over and a few posters warned of the modus operandi of NICE. Most like me ignored it thinking it would bring us the glory days back – who cares if they make Billions out of the club if the trophy cabinet is full of pots.
Well I wish the silent majority had listened to those wise words and now THFC is the footballing arm of a property investment company.
To say I hate the shits is nothing what really makes me sick are the happy clappers who tell us we dont want to do an Accrington Stanley and the future is so bright all the Liverpools/Citys etc etc are going to fall away and the mighty THFC are going to rise to the top.
Dumbest fooks of all and I cant wait for the day they follow NICE away from THFC to their next venture (Bournemouth looking good).
