Levy pleading poverty doesn't cut it. Spurs are one of the wealthiest clubs in Europe with revenues not that far behind us. They are bigger than all the Italian giants and in the top twelve richest clubs in the world. Their owner Joe Lewis is as rich as Abramovich. They bank at least £150m from TV a season. Their problem is their much-lauded business model is just about raising more money for their super rich shareholders (Levy himself is the best paid chairman in the league). If they wanted to they could easily invest more in the squad. It's their own fault they were too slow developing White Hart Lane. They should have done that 15 years ago. They are just conning their own fans. I am not going to slag the Spurs support. I think some of their more sensible fans (just like Gooners) are beginning to see they have been taken for a ride. It's easy and convenient for Levy to blame City for their own poor management. Forget the media myth. It is not a well-run club. They have been underachievers for decades...just like us under Swales.
