Makes you wonder whether West Ham actually have a bid that comes anywhere near ours. If it was that great, surely he'd want to talk about it a bit.

Also, not surprised that the ES let his £500m comment slide - they are banned from White Hart Lane after all.
They are not banned from WHL after they got new owners. Hence the article Levy did yesterday.

I don't see that we can move out of Tottenham with all the downside we will cause to N17 and the surrounding area while still misrepresenting ourselves as Tottenham Hotspur. As I have said hopefully we will lose the OS bid so that won't be a issue.
I don't want to go to east London, I've been vocal about it, but there's no basis for us losing the name Tottenham, it just wouldn't happen.

Frankly, I don't care if we leave Tottenham for somewhere also in North London. Enfield, Barnet, fine by me. There was once talk of Picketts lock, I'd be absolutely fine with that.

When the wind's in the north you hardly notice the sewage treatment works is there!

Things change. I'm not sure how useful it is dredging up old comments about the NDP. I mean, at the time, of course, he's going to be strongly backing it - but in the Commercial Property world, which is ultimately what this is, things change so dramatically.

The plan outlined in the article in the first post is as thorough as it gets. It's sensible and provides for an actual legacy. I find it difficult for people to disagree with anything that Levy has said in that article because it's pretty much full proof. And for people to think they know more than this man? Or that they know better?

Well that's just as ridiculous.

Our plan is sound - Christ, even West Ham released a football stadium picture without a view of a running track.
