    The replies from both Arsenal and Spurs supporters to this poor little lad make a good read.

    What does he want justification for if he's arguing that Joe Lewis is a rich guy? Is he saying that Spurs shouldn't get any assistance because our owner is rich?

    chuckled at the bit that said Levy was paid £2.2m then went to say he negotiated £27m public grant; well he earned his wages then didn't he?:)

    To say that chappy is put in his place is an understatement. Some very good posts from our lot in there. Well done lads.

    Up the Spurs (as Paul "Half Time" Coyte would say).

    It's not right for private companies to have to pay for affordable housing, nor for them to receive public money. However it happens in all walks of life. I used to work for Nissan in Sunderland where we were subsidised to set up a factory.

    Get over it, it isn't a perfect world.
