they will win the league next year...and for many more years to come...
And fail in the CL...
well it cant be all bleak for us at least we got that to look forward to...
ALL of the italian teams will fail in europe. portugal and france will pass us.
im not really looking forward to that, but oh well.
no way that will happen!!! Serie A will rise again, probably when 1. UEFA changes rules so that no team can splash cash or find other loopholes or 2. when they realize in Italy that foreign investment is a must
wish i could share in your optimism but this is italy things happen at a snails pace... also there will never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever be any kind of spending limit ever PSG is going to spend well over 100 mil this summer what is Plantini going to do tell them they can play in the CL you know what they are going to do make phone calls and make their own CL league with a bunch of rich oil people.
your optimism is refreshing.
Wasn't Murdoch giving a presentation about a Euro super league today/yesterday?
what's happening in the banana republic?
I'm making banana wheels!
I invented them don't you know?
Nice guy. Met him last year when the Spurs came to the west coast. Hope he does well and lands on his feet....
Redknapp leaves Spurs: Harry's rollercoaster 2012
if only more managers had the balls to say something like this...
Last month Redknapp warned Tottenham that the club would be "finished" if leading players such as Luka Modric and Gareth Bale are sold this summer.
Spurs' star duo were heavily linked with moves away from White Hart Lane towards the end of Redknapp's tenure, but he insisted he was "looking to build a team, not dismantle".
Thanks for the 4 years, but yeah time to move on. Love hate relationship with 'Arry, gave me some of my best moments as a fan, but too often he put himself above the club and made excuses for his shortcomings.
Moyes, Martinez, Capello and Benitez have been rumored. Personally I would love Laurent Blanc but I'm not sure he's on the list. Moyes seems to be the favorite but with managers, as we clearly saw with Montella, journalist confuse "sounding out" with "seriously negotiating" I think he's on the list though.
They mentioned Moyes on Fox. I think he was the guy who brought Brian McBride to Preston North End in England 10 years ago.
If it was up to 'Arry Luka would have been sold to Chelsea. The decision to keep him was Levy's not 'Arry. Leading up to the deadline Redknapp (senior and junior) were saying we should sell and reinvest.
I appreciate what 'Arry has done for the club but for decades Spurs issue wasn't necessarily managers, rather the idiots at the top. There was a point when the club was in danger of not existing. Levy has been the greatest thing to happen to us. Many of the signings are his short of players like Parker or Crouch. We never had the stability which provided the platform for growth. As long as Levy is at the club then we'll be fine.
Saying that there were rumors yesterday of us being sold to Kuwaiti's which haven't been denied yet.
I think spurs will start heading down now i got a feeling the big money clubs want spurs gone...
That he did.
Moyes is an alright manager. People say he plays boring football but personally I think in approach he's similar to Ferguson, which is why people always tout him as a potential replacement. The only difference is the quality in players. Saying that though Ferguson sides play a little quicker. I wouldn't mind Moyes if he's the man because if you look at what he's done at Everton with no money, it's really stunning. He has a track record of getting Everton to over-perform.
You do realize that Spurs aren't paupers.
The only thing that separates us from top clubs financially is our stadium. If we generated that extra £60m in match day revenues we'd have similar turnover to Chelsea or Arsenal. I'm not sure what "big money clubs" can do to make us disappear.
buy up your players... its just a feeling I got history never seems to change with most clubs without some kind of drastic influx of cash i.e Chelsea,Man City, and PSG..
Aren't the (Spurs owners) ENIC Group or the former English National Investment Company worth a lot of bucks?
Daniel Levy has built a squad to compete with top 4, being completely self-sufficient. All the players are on long contracts, which means we don't have to sell anyone. If they do go, the price will be high. Levy is notorious for getting overvalue on players. Berbatov wanted to go, was openly petulant, and Levy still got £30m for him, and we were in worse contract situation. Levy had a deal in principle to send Gio to Undinese for £13m, which Gio denied because he didn't want to play in Italy. Those two alone should show that unless clubs come with real offers that would make a significant difference we aren't in a hurry to sell. The reported £25m bid from United is laughable, especially considering we turned down £40m just last season.
I doubt the inject significant cash but the common opinion of Spurs not having money is inaccurate. We do our contract similar to Arsenal, incentive laden. Which leads the media to characterize us as cheap, that's just good business and what all clubs are going to have to start doing.
I doubt ENIC inject the club with significant funds until we announce the naming rights and other sponsorship deals, which should be coming soon. When we do we'll be able to opperate as if we do have that extra match day revenue. ENIC have invested well over £100m in future projects, while I can see them inject the club with cash, it would be massive amounts. We don't really need it though we can add quality without a sugar daddy.
Also this move to dump Redknapp has been bubbling for sometime. ITK's who have been adamant that this is being discussed have suggested that Levy is refusing to open up the purse until he has a new manager. Considering they were right about 'Arry leaving, I think that might be accurate. Even Vertonghen said awhile back in an interview, that his deal to Spurs will get done but it might take a couple weeks, that was a couple weeks ago.
Fair play to Udinese selling 2 of there best players to Juve after qualifying for the Champions league.This is exactly the reason why I didn't want them getting 3 rd spot.So now Italy will have 2 teams representing Serie A next season in the Champions league. Just great.
juve, what do they need isla for?,
He adds strength and depth to their squad, Serie A will be ridiculous for the next few years if Juve become a tank.
