Hi all, I have a profile of our billionaire owner Joe Lewis, written by Don Scully. Don asks the question; what has he ever done for us, apart from purchasing the club, but now wants to sell for a profit? Do you agree he has been good for the club or has set us back? Since Lewis and Levy took over from Sugar we’ve only won just one trophy, however, we have one of the best stadiums in the world (thanks to Lewis & Levy). Hopefully, the next chapter will be to fill up our trophy cabinet. What are your thoughts on Lewis? Hopefully, I will have another article shortly with you.Best Regards, Glenn & Stay safe.

Who is Joe Lewis? The owner of Tottenham Hotspur FC
By Don Scully
Since all this outcry over furloughing (cutting their ordinary staffs wages by 20%, while Lewis & Levy carryon on their luxury lifestyle), the penny-pinching, the Spurs fans are questioning their contribution to our team (or lack of it). Daniel Levy and Joe Lewis are coming under immense scrutiny, but it’s not only the fans that are asking awkward questions, but the wider world.
Long before furloughing Pochettino has often spoken or hinted about the amount of investment available to him, especially in comparison to other big-spending teams in the Premier League, such as Manchester City. Given the manager’s comments, supporters have also questioned why Lewis is not injecting money into the club. Figures estimate that Lewis is worth somewhere in the region of £4.5bn – but who is the billionaire tax exile that lives in the Bahama and rarely showing his face at the club he owns.
Well, Joe Louis was one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time. He reigned as the world heavyweight champion from 1937 to 1949, and is considered………. Oh, sorry? Not that legendary one, the man who gave his earnings – during the second world war – to a good cause. But the penny-pinching Billionaire owner of Tottenham Hotspur FC, who wanted to save money by furloughing his hard-working staff, while he, himself, Levy and their productive players continue keeping hold of their wealth while living the life of Riley (also, I might add, while the rest of the country tighten their belts)… Oh, that one! Both names being similar, but are spelt different, and besides, Louis died in 1981 and was a legend (silly me!).
