I’m not joking at all, he took over a basket case and had Venables to cope with, why do you describe him as a travesty?

At the time he took over the club was making more money off the pitch than Man U. Sure they had ferguson but our off pitch business was terribly handled. Then look at the managers he employed and the absolute shite we signed. He oversaw one of the worst periods of being a spurs fan I can remember. The 90s were awful being a Spurs fan.

Have you read The False Messiah by Mihir Bose? A fascinating insight into the club at the time.

No but I am talking about Sugar, not Venables. The purchase of the club was strange. I was only a teenager at the time so memory hazy about exactly happened and I think Venables role in it has largely been airbrushed from history. It isn't really for this thread anyway, I'm not comparing Sugar and Levy either, it is pointless. I am just stating what it was like supporting Spurs in that decade. A constant embarrassment is all I can remember.

I think it’s important to consider what he took over, the club was very close to going out of business. Like him or not Sugar steadied a sinking ship.

Spot on. A better comparison is Mike Ashley. I believe Sugar put some money in, unlike Ashley, but unbelievably he was even more of an embarrassment due to his rants and nonsense to the press

Levy and Lewis the Leach have invested a lot less than those two twats, but have undoubtedly been better owners

Should of been there in the mid to late 70s.

I wouldn't call it an embarrassment, but getting relegated was no fun.
 
In defence of most the people complaining about Enic and (more surprisingly) Sugar, they just weren’t around. It seems like a million years ago not 40 odd
Oh yeah, I'm not blaming anyone.

It always makes me laugh though when people say stuff about the 90s though.

It pales in comparison to the mid 70s

He did but he also bought us because of Amstrad’s deal with Sky to sell the dishes and satellite equipment so he didn’t do it for our benefit. Anyway, I’m grateful to him for that but the rest of his tenure was a depressing time on the whole apart from a couple of good seasons. Let’s just hope the next one is even better than the current lot.

Might miss out on CL football due to average Woolwich & arteta. Yet some will still support him!
we may miss out becasue the players didnt turn up against 3 teams we should get something from
Burnley, B&H, Brentford if we can't beat 2 of them 3 thats down to the players

Enic/Levy cultists .. wrong for over a decade!

Yeah always the players faults or managers. Another 20 years of failure & it will be all the players levy gets in fault or the manager he chooses.
I think conte has done amazing to get us this close to top 4, where as you think he under performed if we don’t.
We see it so differently.
