“Well done, Daniel, you played a blinder!” One Fan Mocks A Big Tactical ENIC Win
By Harry Hotspur -
Marbella Spur nails it for the umpteenth time

Well done, Daniel, you played a blinder! What a brilliant strategy to overprice Kane and refuse to answer the phone to Manchester City, who was the only suitor on the horizon.

Now all you have is a rapidly depreciating asset. For those fans who are turning on Kane, we have no idea what the conversation or agreement between Levy and Kane entailed, and although we all realize that a gentlemen’s agreement is not worth the paper it’s written on, particularly in relation to Levy, Kane obviously feels aggrieved, and I know whom I would rather believe over this stand-off.

I would also like to point out to those fans deriding Kane’s performance yesterday that Son did not have a good game either. This is simply because the transition between defence and attack is ponderous, to put it politely.

Both Skipp and Hojbjerg are by definition defensive midfielders with little creative ability, and Skipp hardly made a forward pass. Coupled with Nuno’s inability to see that his tactics weren’t working and make earlier substitutions, we were always struggling to get the ball forward to Kane and Son.

West Ham was organized and tidy but no more than that, and yet we are unable to penetrate a side set-up like this as we are slow and lacking creativity in midfield.

Back to the drawing board after yet another Groundhog Day.

Nuno hopefully has until the 7th to make an impact as it hasn’t happened so far.
That also gives a DOF time to have a new guy lined up if needed ( he’s meant to have 5 lined up for each position so should be no hard shakes).

Judging from what Kane said in the Neville interview, the gentleman’s agreement was that Levy would let him leave if the club received an offer in excess of £100m. No such offer was made.

Guardiola said that City never made an offer because Levy had made it quite clear that he wouldn’t negotiate on a putative price of £160 million and wouldn’t answer the phone to City. It boils down to conjecture and whom you believe but the result is the same, an unhappy player and a depreciating asset which is an unsatisfactory state of affairs. Levy has always sold our best players in the past for optimum price but this will not happen with Kane now. Poor judgement as part of a series of Levy bungles at the coal face of the transfer market. Let’s call it for what it is another Levy fu** up in a long list.

Official offer is different to being sounded out.
Kane doesn’t depreciate on the spreadsheet in Levy’s eyes, as he’s made the club more than he costs even with performances since Jose left.
The attitude is rotten in the squad, esp if you think what Winks said last week, which was blatant breaking of cover of being a club source to actually what he said in person. That was to hang out Nuno.

You state;

Levy has always sold our best players in the past for optimum price but this will not happen with Kane now.”

It is interesting that Kane is the first instance of Levy not selling our best player. As a supporter I was resigned to Kane being sold. It seemed inevitable and I would suggest that the majority of supporters not only expected it to happen but thought it was probably for the best.

So why did Levy not sell under these circumstances?

I think there are two things at play here.

  1. The quality of any potential replacement for Kane, who actually wanted to come, was nowhere near the standard Kane has set, simply not good enough, or Levy was going to get rinsed on the fee because of the incoming loot for Kane.
  2. Under these circumstances could Levy get away with Kane battering goals in for City and picking up winners medals while Ings or some other pretender kept Spurs in the top half of the table?

Levy knows how to survive. He’s done it for 20 years and is more slippery than an eel covered in baby oil. Once Kane had gone and the discontent had grown the blame would be layed squarely with Levy and the momentum to get him and ENIC out would have become relentless.

Look at what is prevailing through Levy actually not selling Kane. We have sections of our own support suggesting that we should have sold him or that we should sell him further down the road. For me; Spurs have fallen back from where we were in 2017 but we are still in with a sniff of top 4. Retaining Kane is pivotal to that aim.

The fans should act how Kane is acting….

Yeah the “Tottenham DNA” was really ENIC DNA. Cheap option, yes man…same old bolox

The league table is farcical, the team really should be mid table or lower but you look at every side below 5th and there’s not one who can string 3 wins together in a million years. Levy survives cos of this.

Correct. 6th biggest budget in a mid table full of mediocrity. Levy will survive and live to fight another day. If we have a mid table finish this season the majority of supporters will positively welcome the sale of Kane and a splurge on new younger players to get us back in the Europa League on a consistent basis. He has successfully overseen the breaking up of Spurs best side for a generation and will no doubt reduce the wage bill accordingly by diluting the proven quality.

Said it in the other thread. Kane needs dropping. Poch was scared of doing it as is NES. Player power from a player who doesn’t want to be here isn’t a good look. It shows weakness on the managers part and is a reason why so many players are underperforming. They know they hold the upper hand. Ol red nose wouldn’t have accepted these performances from players that’s for sure.

We started the season without him. Given where we are would it make much of any difference if he were dropped?

Our play is all way too slow, it starts with our centre backs, they all like to have the ball instead of moving on quicker, the problem then is it goes to Skipp or Hojbjerg or Ndombele who all like to keep the ball and don’t move it forward quick enough. The bottom line is we have too many players that simply aren’t good enough, Levy has just signed Emerson and he’s worse than Aurier, whoever is scouting these players needs sacking and so does Levy for signing such players, no wonder we never win anything. You pay peanuts, you get monkeys. Levy and Lewis OUT !!!

Its been like this for years. Modric was the last of the great creative midfielders. Never replaced.

We know enough by now that no-one decent who goes somewhere better is ever ‘replaced.’ Levy got lucky punting on Modric as he did with Bale (or whoever brought them in). Dembele hasn’t been replaced, nor Walker, nor an-form Rose, Verts or as yet, Toby. We will likely sign others with potential sell-on value that probably won’t work out and pray another genius like Poch gives us a glimpse of something decent for a few years in between this endless cycle of mediocrity. Mediocrity that seems the desire of our ownership.

Makes one wonder what kind scouting system is employed by the club if any.

“Danny Boy ‘ave I got a bargain for you”…….perhaps that’s why we don’t see Dell Boy on our screens anymore. He’s been heading up ENIC’s scouting network.

They get Danny Rose to comment and if he has to google them then they get brought in cos Levy has an orgasm over saving a few quid.

This is a huge problem we’ve had for years now. If Kane and/or Son are off the boil then we have nothing. The little bit they did have they were useless. They both still had their chances… Kane was at fault for the goal, nobody else… It was painful watching our defence and midfield go sideways and backwards. When Dier has the most touches at 90 odd this isn’t being in control or creative.. We need to work on set pieces, attacking and defending… The subs were just like botchs too little too late, bring them on earlier 55th or 60th min, give them enough time to change the game. Not the 83rd minute, which is more like 86th minute after their subs time wasting.

Why do you persist in calling the best manager we ever had in recent years “botch”? Everyone knows he wasn’t backed that’s why things went south. I’d like to see Guardiola and Klopp succeed with no fresh
faces for 3 transfer windows and just the one recognised striker, plus lose Dembele, Walker and Eriksen with none of them being replaced.
If you must be sarcastic about someone then choose Levy – he deserves it.
It’s beyond debate what Poch achieved on a shoestring. Just look at what others managed with the same squad by comparison. Like it or not at least show him some respect.
Even Levy has admitted his mistake by trying desperately to get him back last summer. Yes he made some mistakes, but to call him “botch” is pathetic.

He did a very good job, but ultimately he failed in the games that mattered.

Indeed.. Swap the word ‘failed’ with Botch.

First league cup final he botched. Should have played Moussa Dembele, not Mason and Bentaleb preferred instead. Neither could boss the middle like the goat.. With the best defence in the league with Rose Verts Toby Walker and prime Kane we came third to Arsenal in a two horse race for the title with Leicester. Botched.. Then there was the Champions league cup final, we were only there because of our hero Lucas, whom he leaves on the bench. Botched…. Square pegs in round holes.. Brilliant coach but his managerial decisions left much to be desired… He refused to change tactics when needed. Also his subs were 98 percent too little too late, much like NES has been doing… He won nothing in 6 years, he should have won something with the team he had, so he botched it without a shadow of a doubt….. He made many mistakes, to praise and back the man like he’s Sir Alex the second coming is pathetic.. Portsmouth, Stoke, Birmingham and a much poorer Arsenal team all won cups in Botches time with us. Arsenal won 4 fa cups… Botch won nothing. The game is about winning.

Also its not about ‘respect’… Don’t you have nicknames for people? I also call our other recent managers ‘Maureen’ and ‘Schnapps’.. I don’t disrespect those guys either… I actually like and respect them all.

And Botchy was never coming back in the summer. There was no talks as everyone with half a brain knew this was fake news at the time… Mbappe Neymar and co, still yet to win anything significant there, why on earth would he have entertained the idea of coming straight back… Lol.. La la land mate.

Everyone is bigger than Levy ..No one is bigger than Levy..Carry on up the Tottenham. I just do not understand those that feel last summers goings on wouldn’t affect Kane..Was it all about Stadium Naming Rights, that’s gone cold.
Daniel Levy is a narcissistic egomaniacal deluded fool who has spent an absolute fortune with the support of Steve I can’t stand transfer windows Hitchens as spiritual a-se licker telling him what a genius he is.
On top of that we have Jah Dele and Harry Angry Winks swanning about as though they own the place despite not having performed for almost 3 seasons.
Kane and Son had there best season for a fair while under Jose…and others threw their toys out of their pram.
At Spurs it seems you do not compete for a place you whinge moan and disrupt.
It isn’t so much that we are a joke it is that we are a basket case of a club.
