    I suppose the only thing about the doped clubs is it did break up the monopoly Goons and United looked like having over the title and then City have helped us make the same top 4 a more inter changeable top 6.

    Funny enough i had my doubts about him with Jol and " rent a quote" as well, i was upset that he got rid of Jol ( especially the way he did it) and i actually hated the fact he employed " rent a quote" as he was the type of person i hoped we would never see as our manager.

    However as you say he has achieved amazing things since being here and i am convinced there is not a better chairman in the game.

    Funnily enough, I hated the appointment of Old Saggy Face too because I think he's a crook and had my doubts about his abilities. But, to be fair to him, he had us playing some brilliant football and had us challenging at a level we hadn't been for decades. I enjoyed his reign despite myself which is why I was tinkled Levy fired him. But in the long run, it's worked out well because Poch has bought us on several levels since. And he's done it with a proper vision and in arguably more trying circumstances.

    I see Pool spent £44m on agents' fees in the last 12 months
    Whereas Spurs spent £11m, same as Woolwich.
    Yet we signed nobody.

    This made laugh

    Sounds like Daniel needed to keep the new villa in Florida in the dark!

    Great chairman, made mistakes but all have, he has not had the buffer either of like likes of Roman or Sheikh your booty who have money to cover up error.

    Best in the business

    Hopefully Levy will now fulfil many of our fans dreams and make some mega money signings and pay top wages to all without a thought as to if it is a sustainable business model and don't give a toss about the consequences of possibly having the best half empty stadium in the championship should things not work out. Its oh so easy to spend when it's not your money and don't have to be held accountable if it doesn't work out.

    What I love most is how humble he is. One video on it all, no SSN, BBC, World News about the world that Levy built, its ours not just his. Class all the way

    Wish a few of the Levy Out tossers would see things for what it really is

    The one thing that was missing last night was a rendition of One Daniel Levy.

    I can only think it’s staged payments. Levy doesn’t like playing clubs full amounts up front so can’t imagine he’s keen on paying agents up front either.

    I may have said it before, but...I love Daniel Levy, his bald little head and all the amazing work he has done to get my club to where it is today.

    He's up there with Bill Nicholson, IMO. Those two men basically made Spurs into the club it is today, and I hope we as fans will appreciate and remember them both fondly.

    A well-designed Excel workbook that a whole accounting department can use without feeling the need to overwrite formulae or sneak in their own weird calculation sheets is no small thing. It’s up there with new stadia as far as I’m concerned. Good work.

    I thought so too but there was no opening ceremony, opera singers or fireworks. That was probably because I was dealing with accountants who know the price of everything and the value of nothing. Bastards.

    Thanks for the recognition Sir.

    I heard a couple of attempts to start ‘Daniel Levy, he’s one of our own’, but didn’t catch on

    Because that would just be boring lazy and typical of our fans to come up with a unique song

    We are absolutely on the same page here! Jol era remains one of my favourite times. Redknapp's a self-serving crook. But I think Levy's been on a learning curve and he's got it right with Poch!

    I have it on good authority that Levy still has a boner.
