Do you think we should be finishing above this average Woolwich?
It’s fine if you don’t. I do. I think we have a better side & manager.
Yes, I do believe we should finish ahead of them. That wasn't really my point, my point was simply that the goalposts always move in relation to Levy. If we finish outside the top 4, it's a failure, yet, when we finish inside the top 4, as it seems we have, it's not even acknowledged as success.

We do have a better manager than woolwich and a better squad than woolwich. You cannot exempt Levy from credit for that - he's run the club for 20 years. There's not a single person at Spurs that isn't at Spurs at Levy's behest.

Why do we have a better squad than woolwich? Well, in large part, it's because Levy dug his heels in and refused to sell Kane at anything less than a king's ransom. When many here (including me at times) were saying it was stupid and would only cost us money in the long run. He also appointed a DoF who, despite being lampooned for bargain shopping out of his old club, signed 3 of the most key players in this season's squad.

Why do we have a better manager than woolwich? Because Levy was not dissuaded and got his man - 2nd time out, fairly. For whatever reason, Conte wouldn't put pen to paper in the summer. I suspect it's mostly because he expected Kane would be sold. Nuno was an abject failure, but might be the best failure we've ever had. Instead of appointing a half measure stop gap and then going back into the manager market again in the summer, Levy went and got Conte.

Does he deserve a statue? No. Should we be winning a trophy? Yes. But we (likely) managed top 4 despite all odds. The majority opinion 10 months ago is we'd be lucky to run 6th. The majority opinion 4 months ago was the same. But here we are, so just acknowledge that it was an adequate job with reason to hope for more next season.
 
Things are aligning nicely for ENIC.

There are no more excuses and this is a historical opportunity to strike.

Well, more like a burning platform ...

This is if ever a summer where heavy, considered investments will need to be made, whether we prefer to or not.

The sheer incompetence at Man Utd and Woolwich simply cannot carry on like this. But for now both are probably stuck for at least ½ or 1 season more with inept directors and manager, respectively. Eventually they will start getting things right, though, and both have good financial basis.
Then there is Newcastle. They won't get things right for this season, but next season they just might.

We have Conte and by all chances CL football again.

This is ENIC time. This is it. Not later. Now.

If they don't do it this time, then there is absolutely no chance they ever will want to.

I read this with this song playing in the background whilst staring at your Avatar, my God I am inspired!

 
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.
 
Yawn. Piss off with your little Xes Igula Igula . We've snatched 4th, be fucking happy for once.
Don't worry about it, it's all he has.

Binned twice for trolling, can't make a coherent argument, and the sad fuck actually thinks it upsets people if he sends them a kiss.
He's too thick to realise that everyone thinks he's a joke.

I've said it before, if you get a kiss from him, you know you're right.



*Waits for the inevitable kiss.

He didn’t post a single positive thing about smashing the scum and instead argued about how people shouldn’t be giving credit to Emerson and PEH.

Always knew he was a troll but that confirmed it for me, absolutely no way he’s spurs.

Spurs’ wage bill as a percentage of given club

Man City - 58%
Chelsea - 60%
Man Utd - 63%
Liverpool - 65%
Woolwich - 84%
Tottenham - 100%

From that we can see that 4 teams spend more than 50% more than us on wages. Were spending money on playing talent effectively. If we could spend as much as the top 4 then we’d be challenging for the league every year.

Interesting that Woolwich spend almost 20% more than us on wages. They’re poorly run too financially.

I think we can be proud of how we’re doing given our financial means.
