    Our stadium gets a lot of stick from our fans but I actually think it's one of the better new stadiums in terms in style, especially from the outside. This new Spurs one looks like it's come off the production line though.

    Isn't it just Emirates with different coloured seats?

    More to the point, where do Spurs actually get their money from?

    If they are loaded, how comes there isn't a 'Tottenham Hotspur Premium' on their transfer targets.

    Levy has (in financial terms) run the club well though he might have cocked up on the playing side a few times.

    He's grown their revenue base and kept costs under control so that they have cash to spend. A few years ago they raised £20m through the stock market and spent it on young English players. They have a big squad and can raise money by selling, without impacting on quality.

    When Arsenal moved to the Emirates, the extra revenue they generated easily paid the financing costs and gave them a healthy profit, plus they have the properties built on the Highbury site. When we moved to CoMS, we completely mismanaged the financial side and let operating costs spiral out of control so that the massive extra revenue we generated was completely eaten up not even leaving enough to cover the financing costs of the stadium. In the last publsihed accounts, we were actually no better off in net terms than we were at Maine Road.

    They funded by a London billionaire. Not sure of his name.
