Levy has a meal with Bill Kenwright (Everton), and it all looks hunky Dory (balderdash).
The press is in overdrive as a former BBC journalist encounters Daniel and Bill (Bill and Ben) having a cosy tête-à-tête at a posh restaurant. Before you know it, Daniel has splashed the cash and brought in an entire squad (and got rid of Winks in one sitting)… all settled with a pleasant tickle between the pair, followed by strawberries and cream.
Then another report pops up a few hours later saying that Everton boss Frank Lampard snubs Daniel Levy’s offer to take our disgruntled midfielder.
According to The Telegraph, Frank “Spencer” Lampard has turned down the prospect of bringing our magnificent Harry Winks to his club. Well, we don’t want him, Frank “Spencer”, so please take him.
Like any good Bill, he went back to “Spencer” after Daniel Levy originally floated the idea of including Winks as part of a deal to bring Richarlison and one other to the Tottenham Stadium.
Winks, as you all know, has been heavily linked with a move to the poorer part of Liverpool, with Sky Sports reporting last week that Lampard had given the green light for the club to proceed with a move (as they would know).
As I said earlier, Levy and his wealthy Everton counterpart Bill Kenwright were spotted dining out by former BBC North America Editor and Tottenham Supporter Jon Sopel. He was seated at the next table to the two chairmen (of course he was, a Spurs supporter just happens to sit next to Bill and Ben… it all sounds “ickle-kickle” and “flobabdob” to me. “Weeeeeedddd!”
Of course, this is all bollocks as Sopel wouldn’t have a clue what they were talking about. As far as we know, Bill Kenwright could have been asking Daniel to appear at one of his theatres to do a turn. He might have also wanted Joe Lewis, the puppet master, to get Levy to sit on his knee and say a few words.
According to various reports, Levy has offered the cashless club £100 million for two players, less if they took Winks. The hole in that chink is Levy offering anybody any money without him shouting and screaming all over the place. On top of that, Tottenham’s funds are not that great to offer £100 million on two players and still expect to spend millions on other ones. Anybody would think that Levy was a Spurs enthusiast and lover of the team beyond the Stadium’s financial pulling power. Don’t be silly!
The transfer rumour mill is starting to think (as it always does at this time of the transfer window) that it is on a stage of clowns for a laugh a minute to please its unsuspecting audience. Tomorrow you’ll probably find that we’ll be joining forces with Woolwich to create a half-failed-half-superior-hybrid-club to go as one to the Cannes film festival to jointly win a trophy so that the critics can piss themselves. Or even better still, Donald Trump will be taking over the Woolwich so that he can win the Division One title for them, hopefully. Who knows what is what is this transfer window of madness?
Talking of rumours or just madness, reading through various non-Spurs sites (but talking about football), it is incredible what some Spurs fans (allegedly) want at our club. Anything from Messi, Ronaldo, Pele (yes, Pele… if that was possible, then the shovels at the ready) etc., including even raiding Woolwich for their best (isn’t that a contradiction? Best, Woolwich??? Do these fans know where Woolwich finished this season? The best can be found in the top four… not hiding under a red cloud of soot and shite).
Then some were talking about replacing Pochettino with Conte… a man who has hardly won anything (yes, I know he won something with PSG) and a man who is dripping with success and trophies (Conte). Their logic is that Conte hasn’t won anything with us, but Pochettino has (where? Or have I been in a night of deep sleep the entire reign of Pochettino?).
Talking about Tottenham and fans, I read a while back that somebody asked who “Bill Nicholson” was when somebody mentioned that he won the double and other trophies for us. Silly Season!? God help us! Is that what we bring to Tottenham; money without brains or knowledge of who or what they support?
You just want to cry sometimes. Going to the ground and talking to fans, you’ll be surprised how many so-called fans know nothing about our history. I went into the Tottenham shop a few years ago, and somebody asked the assistant what “COYS!” stood for. I’ll leave it there.
