Great stadium / Great training ground / great at making money / Pity about the team otherwise everything is great .
I said it before sometimes you have to try to that extra inch . We apparently owe 6oo million well in the way the payback is set up why not add 100 million on to that and we could be sitting here with Grealish / Dybala / Fernandes / I am not saying that the 100 mill would pay for these three players but added to what we had offered we could have pushed all three over the line .
I am saying a one off time go that bit extra . Because from their own mouths they thought they were on their way to us but the deals fell thru and all for a few mill here a few mill there peanuts in todays football finances .
That is not to say gamble every transfer window as we would be in financial trouble I am saying in the position we were in a one off "go the extra inch " and we would be in a lot healthier place than we are now .
Oh I forgot and a striker to play alongside our only striker or in his place if god forbid your only striker gets injured .
Levy does not need to be replaced he needs to have a rethink because Jose needs help and this failure to take a chance could cost him big time regards to gate receipts because football history tells us all there will be a big fall off in attendances it may even occur this season .

you do realise that to invest on the playing side you need the help of the banks to do it, and with the cost of the stadium going from a 450m debt before Brexit to 635m after kind of tied the hands a lot. a 111m spend (after transfers) this season is investing! the previous year of no spending was apparently down to Poch, if he only wanted certain players and they weren't available then what is the club expected to do?

yet another overreaction from someone that doesn't understand you are only allowed to register 25 players in a squad, and a budget to pay the whole staff
I fully understand that We can only register 25 players but that’s a whole another argument about why we seem to struggle to sell players which Im Fairly confident will rear its head again in the summer

we were continually told the new stadium wouldn’t effect transfers!

yes he has spent money in jan but Completely failed to address the weakness in the squad with the money spent
we was 1st told that pre brexit, when the damage of brexit turned a debt of 450-635. at no time did ENIC or Levy actually say we would be spending 100m+, and we did actually spend bar the previous season

@Shadydan are you even an actual fan? Or do you just like arguing with anyone who gets half way upset at a club that has consistently left themselves short and has been in a backwards trajectory for the last 3 seasons.

You seem to be complacent that Tottenham Hostpur exists and that the results on the field are just whatever.
Less of the ad-hominem attacks and debate the points I make, if you cannot debate the points I make put me on ignore, don't take your frustrations out on me, go and masturbate or something :D

I debate in plenty. Just don’t understand the complacency you’ve seemed to accept from the club.

They need to be kept far away from on field decisions

Just please put in place a proper scouting system. If they don’t have the nous then simply go and fucking throw a shit ton of money at Dortmund’s scouting system, buy the entire thing. It’ll work out a lot fucking cheaper in the long run.

Right now crying out for players in many positions. I fully expect us to target anothee flakey attacking midfielder with no intelligence and a dodgy first touch. Would sum up this clubs approach to squad building

Levy and Lewis couldn’t give a fuck about actually competing for titles. They care about top 4 and profits. We’re the new Arsenal but didn’t see any of the trophies or titles.

What is the point in spend £100s and £100s of millions of pounds on world class stadium and training facilities which set fans expectations very hight but then completely neglecting to invest on the actual product (the team) who these facilities are built for and ultimately what us fans pay the money and put a passion into supporting! It’s not the fucking stadium we support it’s the club the players but all we keep hearing from the Bsodl is we can’t blame him as he had built us the stadium. yes it’s an amazing stadium and yes he deserves a lot of credit for this and the training ground. This doesn’t change that facts that on the football side of things over Enic/ Daniel Levy tenure everytime we seem to be within touching distance of glory and winning trophies something goes Wrong or bad decisions have been made which pushes us back as a club.

thats because the players that got us to semi finals and finals failed to get over the line, not ENIC they didn't play the matches.

did Levy pick Son as a left back?

did Levy stick his arm out and have the ball accidentally hit it?

I thought this was all the world cups fault?

Just be patient. We’re a few weeks into February and made class signings in January. We never usually do that. We shipped out some dross on loan, that’s a bonus. Given the amount of potential money to be made from the stadium and sponsorships, I think we will see more deadwood leave this summer and Jose truly shape his team with signings.

Enic have shown progress for years and years, check out my other post in this thread for why I think that. We’re making progress as a club, be positive and done let one season or one result detract from how far we have come
