Still nothing near the teams we *claim* to want to compete with and still draining the club through a shocking under-reinvestment of FC operational revenue into football spending.

As I said - the owners are stealing from the club. No 2 ways about it.


Sorry, that's just rubbish.

If you haven't found them before - try reading the last 10 years of accounts - spot that no dividends have been paid.
Annual Reports | Tottenham Hotspur or even just looking at the summer and January transfer business where the club invested over £100m into the squad.

Under enic we have a sustainable football club - if you want one flooded with money try ManCity or Chelsea. Just remember to wash your mouth out when you read how their owners made their money from human rights abuses and stealing a country's resources from their fellow countrymen.

And sustainable usually mean not 'instant gratification' but people need to get their gratification over time - like the majority of clubs in PL.

Yep. I don't think you can make sweeping generalisations. There are good and bad old fans and good and bad young fans.

I made a suggestion earlier in the thread that they should consider making OAP/Concession only stands.
The real truth is that young, old, rich or poor serve up some good football and the fans will respond. No one ever complains about the atmosphere when we are smashing teams.

I've also seen so many people looking back at Old White Hart Lane and reinventing how great it was, I remember scores of games where you could hear a pin drop. I've sat in a half-empty stadium watching Europa League games.

Yep. There was one Europa game I attended in the last 10 years where there was around 23k in attendance.

Although that had a brilliant atmosphere. I have to look it up now.

There was a reason why 1882 was formed and got off the ground and also why it was allowed to get the nod for Europa League games.

Those were some good nights. I abandoned my ST in East Upper to be in Park Lane.

This guy really could benefit from an anger management course
The woke response? ... Not being afraid to call it like it is has served me well, unlike you I don't live in my mum's basement but have multiple properties around the world, I'd be the first too admit I've been very lucky but part of that luck has never been being afraid to call it like it is. To never put up with whinging whining tossers who are always looking for problems and for someone else to blame ... they suck the joy out of life and they get you nowhere.

If you sit around moaning all the time guess what happens? you end up going nowhere ... bit of free life advice JT get angry at oxygen stealing cunts, losers who only ever see the negative ... your life will be immeasurably better without them.
