To Dare Is Too Dear

Harry Redknapp:

"I was managing a Tottenham team that I thought could go on and win the title, I genuinely believed that.

I took Louis Saha and Ryan Nelsen on free transfers - we were short, we had injuries at centre half and I had no striker. If we had gone out and spent money then...

Luis Suarez was a player that we were looking at.

I spent three hours with Hazard in a hotel room in Paris - I met him at the airport - he was dead keen to come to Tottenham"

AVB:

"The size of the club, the fan-base and its infrastucture makes you dream you can go higher but the philosophy at the top prevents you from doing so"

Poch:

"After the Champions League final, four years in the top-four, then two years without signing, a different management strategy was needed.

Sometimes the vision of a coaching staff is not accepted by the club management. We could anticipate what could happen"

Doesn’t say a lot, we are the most incompetent club in the transfer market in Europe.

This.

They got Bruno on the last day. We signed Gedson nice and early...

He should have been signed in the summer, instead we piiiiiiissed about going for unrealistic targets like Eriksen and Dybala and left it too late. Bruno’s a brilliant example of how inept we are in the transfer market. I have 12 others if you’d like?

Referees were solely responsible for Penchester United having CL this season, the extra points they were gifted absolutely made the difference.

Levy:

"Two things I want for Christmas. The first thing I want is top 4. The second is a trophy."

Just about sums it up.
----------------------------------------------------------------------



Uttter c***. Can’t believe we used to have Spurs fans on here including chronic etc only few years ago, giving me and you stick over our criticism of the board and Levy all these years. Looks like we were spot on. Levy only gives a s** about the bank balance and building a brand. They couldn’t give a flying f** about glory on the pitch. To dare is to dear. #levyout #enicout. Listen out for my talkSPORT rant soon boys. I’m going right in on the bald ba***
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I know mate. I wish we could be proved wrong about this but look at the state of the board. Never seen fans more collectively anti-Levy before than right now.

If he managed to get Bale I might cut him a bit of slack, but that's clearly not going to happen and is probably just a make-believe rumour to try and get fans on his side.

Funniest thing I’ve heard from the amazon doc so far is Levy saying “everyone knows all the activity happens in the last week of the window”. How is he so blind to the fact that all top clubs strengthened early on and are now pretty much done with their business, while we wait for scraps in the bargain bucket after we’ve no doubt already lost a few games. This guy will never change, so we are doomed
----------------------------------------------------------------------

So united signed Fernandes on the 30th Jan and the window closed the next day. The biggest club in the land did its dealing in the last 24 hours of the window.

Spurs did their major deals on the 15th and 29th.

So stop peddling this BS!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
So I take it you’re happy with our transfer dealings this window, and our chairman’s approach of typically waiting until the last minute?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Not the point. you claimed last minute deals is a small club thing and big clubs get their business done early. we got ours donw early and Utd did it late and got a better player too.

we can be critical of Levy and co. Hes far from perfect but at least stick to facts.
