      Really enjoyed it, particularly the stuff about the academy and the new stadium. Who knew that Arsenal's main stand had a height restriction on it as so their seating had to have such a shallow gradient! No wonder their atmosphere is so rubbish, that and their fans obviously. Our new Lane has no restrictions on height, so it sounds as though our home end will be giving plenty of us vertigo!

      You do have to watch it and bare in mind that it is for a US audience, hence it was a little odd hearing everyone refer to "soccer" and then "football" in reference to NFL. It also, for any proper Spurs fan, felt a little bit like they were trying to introduce you to the club at first, but it never felt condescending or anything.

      Actually, it's starting to occur to me just how beneficial this NFL deal could prove to Spurs because, aside from the local appeal of hosting American Football, it is going to MASSIVELY raise our profile in the States. If you approach many Americans and ask them to name an English "soccer" team, most will say Man Utd, many will struggle to name even them, but once this deal is up and running and we host NFL teams from across the USA, I think we may start to get noticed a little bit more and that could be absolutely huge for us.


      Great watch anyhow.

      Levy didnt deny his plan wouldnt be better with a London NFL franchise,seems like he bent over to find solutions to the pitch/stadium concerns of the NFL.
      People saying poch will be off in the summer,if they cant tell the patience is there from both sides (club&manager) then really I dont know if they are paying attention.First time in my 40 odd years going someone has come in to not only manage the team but install a winning/respectful culture change (burkinshaw didnt have to we were still running on the nicholson ethos IMO),I really dont know if with the timing of what is going on if we could have made a better partnership than with Pochettino.Jose,klopp,pep and redknapp even,would need too much money during the stadium build,and I love the homegrown core and how it keeps improving.We didnt love mason cos he was so good,but he was a signpost for the future,and ours.If we cant love our own kids breaking through and give them some slack,what chance for janssen,sissoko,son.

      It's a good insight, I haven't watched it all in detail yet but I was very impressed with Levy, not giving up in courting the NFL for 3 years, and the absolute attention to detail. Kane is a really mature head on young shoulders and some of the input from people who have been there for a long time like Fennelly was notable for the real change in the last 3 years. We couldn't have done all this with someone like Redknapp still in charge, as much as I loved his time here.

      I was almost a bit emotional at the end....this is yet another 'first' delivered by Spurs, a real step change for the future, whatever you think of Levy he continues to transform our club and I think with the winning mentality once we win something much more may follow. The future is very exciting indeed and I think whilst we initially lagged behind many of our competition, we will soon be leaving them trailing in our wake.

      NBC's done many of these, for several clubs. Main purpose is to basically advertise their coverage, which is excellent, here in the States. So they're always essentially fluff pieces. Still, as others have said, I've never seen Hugo talk that much or even, for that matter, Levy, and the inside look at the stadium was fascinating and really exciting.
