'It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we of Tottenham Hotspur Entertainment Company have set our sights very high off the pitch, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory'.

I feel dirty maligning that esteemed quote even in a lighthearted way but it appears as what we have become.

It is such a short sighted view in a business sense,the complete core of the business is reliant on the success of THFC no matter how many other events they put on because they are never going to be above 30ish home games,never going to bring money in advance from 40k people paying upwards of £1000,or 100k members paying their subs (and the subsequent match day income.Those "clients" (well its what they call us now isnt it) are all about THFC,not nfl,not rugby,not gigs or boxing,the business revolves around the team and its performances.

If the extra revenue is used to draw down the stadium debt,its disingenuous because whilst that is good in one way,all it really does is increase the pot ENIC will withdraw upon sale.The time to invest and ensure we stayed at the top end of european football was last year,the years before,and whilst we are hardly run on a shoestring,our financial results in 2021 will be hammered with no CL and the fall off in support subsequently.If ENIC withdraw the level of spend in the team when that happens,god help us getting back to where the much maligned Poch took us.Happy birthday El Jefe for yesterday!!

Is the correct answer.......
and here is the wrong answer......

Mourinho rules out a summer "overhaul" at Spurs. "No, not massive changes. First of all, that's not what we think we need. 2nd because of the profile of our club & 3rd because of what the market is. Year after year, it's more difficult. I'm not thinking of an overhaul."

For Fuck sake, well it's probably 'see you later' to Rose, Wanyama, Vertonghen, CCV, KWP, and maybe the likes of Kane if he doesn't fancy it/wants a change. Maybe others too? and based on Maureen telling the truth, (which I also doubt) we'll have a squad of about 18 players, a load of injuries by Christmas and another frustrating season. At least there will be the NFL and some rugby League to enjoy though, so that's OK...........:mad:

There will be two further NFL matches held in October along with the rugby union clash between Great Britain and Australia on Saturday 14 November.
It now appears that Lady Gaga will play at the stadium on July 30, although it has been yet to be announced by the club. It is mentioned on the artist’s official website as part of her tour.


Well thats ok then.

I don't actually mind the stadium being put on the global sport and entertainment map and featuring in Discovery channel type programmes., IF it enhances the football teams success, global appeal and fanbase and the subsequent wealth generated IS invested in the team and football infrastructure to make us better. The football team should be at the heart of everything that we are about, the Goose laying the golden eggs. At the moment the Goose is sick and and might even die as a current force in the Premier League and Europe. At this moment it would appear that Levy and ENIC are heading for full Alan Sugar, ready to use the club as a cash cow before selling, which is becoming ever more apparent. I bet Levy retains a executive director role somewhere and a top hospitality suite for life, deluded in the fact that he's made all our footballing lives better. We didn't lose a single home game in our last season at White Hart Lane.

It angers me every time I see how brilliant the building we play football in is compared to how our side currently is...

The stadium should have been the jewel in the crown of out football club.

Not the cherry on the cake of our investment group.

The way this club is treating people in the pursuit of money.... right now I am not bothered if I ever visit the place.

Something needs to change at the club as it's all wrong.

Maybe it's me, maybe because I still view it as a club instead of a business.

This club has given me so much joy over the decades... it now frustrates and pisses me off on a daily basis and that's without kicking a fucking ball in over a month.

I bought a season ticket few years back. Worst thing I have ever done due to being further afield (not using every week). I feel more invested in the club which lead me to read more into things about the club etc rather than just enjoying the football. We as supporters get screwed at every turn by Levy and Co. Whatever they can do to make a few quid including the latest before the breakout which was after March season ticket holders couldn't get any money out until season end. Just so Tottenham could have the interest off that being in their bank. It's all ludicrous. Can't wait to get rid of it if I'm honest and just go back to enjoying the sport.

On the new stadium as well. All the awesome things that were talked about. Glass tunnel, cheese room, board rooms, sky bar etc is all well and good but I've been to the stadium a few times and the only difference to us regular folk is it's easier to get a half time beer and take a piss. Beyond that who gives a fuck.
