Daniel Levy: Shame and Scandal

Daniel Levy: Shame and Scandal

Yesterday I wrote in my article about Conte, “Levy has said or hinted that they (in other words, the board and himself) haven’t entirely focused on the team because of the building of the new stadium and, of course, COVID-19. If that is true and Levy has fully woken up to what it is to be a top 6 club and realises his mistakes, then I say hats off to him. But, and a big “but,” the proof of the pudding is in the eating.” What a crock of rubbish. However, lucky I was wise enough to end the piece with “the proof of the pudding is in the eating”.

It seems his words about not being “focused” was a con, probably just to spur those on to purchase their season tickets before the deadline. Levy has shown his true colours; what he regards as essential and what isn’t, and what isn’t is the team. What is important is feathering his, the boards and investors nests.

Yes, we have called off talks with Antonio Conte about him becoming our next manager. He looked set to replace Jose Mourinho after our hopes of luring  Pochettino back from Paris St-Germain were dashed. According to BBC Sport, there is no likelihood of them resuming. It has been reported from Italy that Conte was starting to have doubts due to the transfer budget he was set to be given. Typical Levy. What he wants must come on the cheap.

Also; Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Conte wanted to bring in more than four members of his own backroom staff, with Levy reluctant to allow this, while there was also some ground to be made upon salary expectations.

But Levy’s get-out clause is that they also have concerns as well. Conte has a reputation for buying ready-made stars whereas, he, Levy, want the bulk of the players to come from the club’s Academy (which will save the club millions).

But one problem with Levy’s concerns (or lies) is that he must have had those concerns before discussing them with Conte? Unless he was hoping to browbeat him into submission. He leaves us, as a club, looking like a bunch of amateurs. It also leaves Levy still looking for a new boss, seven weeks after sacking Mourinho (sacked before a final, no less).

Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers have also been linked with the role but weren’t stupid enough to take it.  Nagelsmann subsequently joined Bayern Munich, while Rodgers has stated his commitment to Leicester City; wise decisions.

Alasdair Gold revealed that early discussions between both parties were very promising and now appear to have fallen through.

It has also been reported that Fabio Paratici has already started working on identifying new targets, according to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio. He has revealed that Paratici’s first task is now to seek an alternative head coach after the prospect of him being reunited with Conte, who he worked with at Juventus

My thoughts

What the hell is Daniel Levy up to? As I already said, it makes Spurs look like a bunch of amateurs and idiots.

To be honest, the next step must be to find an inexperienced Pochettino like fool to take over and then for Levy to dictate what he wants; preferring getting players from his Academy than spending millions on quality. It isn’t really surprising that Harry Kane doesn’t want to stay with the cowboys who are running the club. Who next will leave? Son?  If he stays, then maybe he should see a psychiatrist. In fact, perhaps we all should see a shrink.

When it was reported that Conte might get the job, my spirits started to rise. Now they’ve sunk right back down again. At least for several years, I can’t see us challenging for a top-four spot while Levy is pulling the strings. I also can’t see us winning any trophy other than one of the minor ones; the FA Cup or League Cup. Indeed, the Champions League and Premier title is going to be out of our grasp.

We are a laughing stock and, at the same time, classified as a top-six club. As I have said many times, we have a Rolls Royce stadium and a Robin reliant team. The next step is to put Del Boy in charge.

Levy talks about a “project”, and I think that “project is to compete on the same level as the Spammers, Gooners, Magpies, the Seagulls etc. Just staying above the relegation zone would be a good season for Levy, or that is how it seems.

I hope that when we go back to the stadium, the fans starting showing what they think about Levy and his business dealings.

Hi all, if you are a Spurs supporter like me, you will be interested in the book “My Eyes Have Seen the Glory”. As an avid reader of Spurs history, myself, this book stands on the shoulders of them all. It has interviews with 40 great Spurs legends of WHL. It is written by Toby Benjamin & Alan Fisher. And it has a forward by the great Gary Mabbutt MBE. Read my book review below. Whether au fait with our history or not, this book is a must to any Spurs fans. To read more, click below.

All the best, Glenn

  1. Is Mr Levy against Newcastle United thriving ? And Mr Levy protesting and trying to stop another clubs commercial ops in bringing in a sponsor, as reported in the Guardian .

    Newcastle United Supporters have suffered for years ..not winning a thing yet still near 54 thousand turn up each home game…hoping and dreaming.

    Please let us have our day in the sun ..I have spent 60 years following Newcastle with all my heart. My children my Grandchildren, mother , father , family you know ?

    There is many a criticism flying about the media right now over the sale to the Ruebens, Pif, and PCP with KSA mentioned in a bad way because of their wealth and historic human rights issues.

    If you need to disguise your jealousy Mr Levy what better way than to bang on about human rights.

    You need to look at Russians commiting murder on British streets and Abramovichs best mate Putin..Wolves with Chinese owners and human rights record there, then we have Manchester City a Gulf state owns them in all but name..look at their Human rights record.

    If you use Facebook, watch Disney films , watch formula 1 racing , these entitys are all part owned by Saudi Arabia .

    It’s only when it’s Newcastle United and the North thriving and a little hope and good fortune comes our way we see you take notice and in a negative way towards us.

    More competition for the sneaky six and the Cartel is a good thing..the more money in the Premier league the better as it goes round and makes it stronger.

    Give us a break Mr Levy, have a heart.

  2. Footnote..make that 50 years following the TOON.

    Didn’t Mr Levy push Spurs to the Saudis when they walked away from the table , initially, with Us ?

    Hypocrisy.
