Tottenham Chairman’s message is positive.

Posted on May 19, 2013 by Scraggs

“Looking ahead to the summer, we shall continue to seek to strengthen and improve the team and to retain key players. We also look forward to the return of Sandro and Younes who were missed this season but who are well on the road to full fitness.” That says it all, no fuss and no special mention of a certain Gareth Bale.

Daniel Levy goes into the summer break with just one aim and that is to start the season with a stronger squad than we finish this season as he heaps praise on the staff and players after what has turned into an excellent season. Last July following the dismissal of Harry Redknapp and appointment of Andre Villas-Boas and the remainder of his coaching team many were wondering just what could be expected of this season, it is probably fair to say that most experts and a good proportion of Tottenham supporters anticipated the worst.

Redknapp who had led the team to a couple of 4th place finishes in 3 seasons, GONE, Modric acknowledged as Tottenham’s most influential player, GONE. Ledley King the Tottenham captain and one of the finest defenders of his generation cut down by injury, GONE. Rafael Van de Vaart another fantastic player and fans favourite with goals and assists aplenty, GONE. After just 20minutes of the first game of the season one of the best defenders of the previous season Younes Kaboul, injured and GONE for the rest of the season.

IN came the new man AVB fresh from the sack at Chelsea and lambasted as a poor mans Mourinho with no man management skills, tactical know how and devoid of any ability to get the best from his team. IN came Stefan Freund a firm fans favourite from recent years and a master stroke. IN came Lloris destined to become a great keeper, IN came Dembele, already a fantastic player but also one that will improve considerably working with AVB. IN came Sandro as first choice in central midfield and he has excelled to become one of the best at what he does. IN came Jan Vertonghen a top quality replacement for Ledley and a player of genuine class. IN came Gareth Bale as one of the main strikers rather than wide midfielder and the rest is history as he has taken his game to an even greater level.

So at the end of another nailbiter of a season it looks as though Tottenham will just about miss out again but will likely end with their record points haul, after the first few months of this AVB era who would have expected that. The Chairman has confirmed that the Tottenham fan base globally has continued to grow with 45% more supporters groups around the world. In the USA a new supporters group springs up every week as interest and support for this great club continues to grow.

As plans for the new stadium moves forward and edges ever closer to completion the waiting list for season tickets continues to increase and now stands at a staggering 42,000.

Tottenham will soon break the rich clubs monopoly and secure some regular involvement in the Champions League, and once they do then the fans of City, Chelsea and some of these johnny come lately clubs with rich benefactors will see just how much history and clout Tottenham have as well as enormous worldwide support.

Perhaps it should be pointed out that Tottenham were saved in 1991 by Alan Sugar, prior to that Irving Scholar had made some horrendous decisions and the club were in serious financial difficulties, the result was that when the Premier League commenced the following season Tottenham found themselves unable to compete financially and have been playing catchup ever since.

Tottenham are on the verge of something special and once achieved it will have been by sensible growth, perseverance, hard work and patience rather than with billions from a wealthy owner.

The Chairman’s message is clear, whatever happens today it remains onwards and upwards for Tottenham as a club.

    I think that Bale has already signed his new deal and the announcement will be made soon either to take the pain away from failing to make 4th for supporters or to add to the joy. either way it will be great news and shut up all the morons trying to destabilise Spurs.

  2. Bigham says:

    Firstly well done AVB and the team, I know it was not the holy grail, but 72 points is fantastic. Reality is we did it on the back of asset stripping by Levy. Credit to the man when due and credit there must be but the fact we sold quality and replaced with an potential as well as the key fact of not buying a quality striker has cost us. We are the nearly men and will continue to be until Levy realises, that just once or twice in a period of time you have to invest in quality at key moments. Yes Levy is due credit, but balance it with the fact we are a selling club under him. I know you lot have a love in with him, but lets always as fans try and be honest and that means on this occassion Levy haS LET US DOWN!
