    Googling save our Spurs to derail a different thread I came across this article from the initial takeover

    https://www.theguardian.com/football/2000/dec/21/newsstory.sport6


    loads to pick out, this was an interesting one:

    Levy hates publicity and has no desire to take on the chairmanship, preferring instead to find a figurehead and pull the strings in the background.

    City analysts who have followed the mediocre performance of Spurs' share price warn he has a lot to do. "He's going to have to spend a lot of money if they're going to catch up with Arsenal," said one analyst. "I just hope he knows how big a job he's got."

    Mark Jacob, co-founder of Save Our Spurs, a pressure group formed this season to oust Sugar, said: "We are cautiously optimistic. We would like to thank Mr Sugar for his period of tenure at Tottenham. He put the financial standing of the club on an even keel but unfortunately he was not able to speculate to accumulate.

    Finding a media partner is likely to be an urgent priority. Levy believes in the power of the internet and television to generate new revenues for the club and boost Spurs' profile in foreign markets like the Far East and the US. Broadcasters will be encouraged to invest in the club in return for a slice of future television money.

    Boosting International revenue is the difference between us and Liverpool and Man U now. Oh, and a few more trophies.

    I wonder when people are going to accept we know nothing about the club's ability/goals in transfer market

    Last 6 months - Clarke, Sessegnon, Lo Celso, N'dombele, Gedson, Bergwijin (3 of those over 30M+), with likely another one at least this window

    If we get rid of Eriksen, Rose, KWP and maybe Wanyama this window, it would be a significant refresh of squad.

    I still think the next two years will be very different to what the narrative or precedent we are accustomed to as the new revenue streams make an impact.

    A very interesting read.

    The sad reality of it all is that we are a half way house. On the one hand we have gone all in on a manager, effectively spending money that only the big clubs would and could. But, when it comes to players we're in a whole world of our own. I have to admit I am impressed with our purchases, they see quite a fair amount of money to commit to (Ndombele) and shrewd negotiation (Lo Celso) but when it comes to the big name signing sometning has to happen for it to end in pure door slamming frustration (Dybala and Bale).

    Whilst there is no doubt ENIC have done a very good job, what we have seen under their tenure is simply an evolution, a straightening of the human back in Darwinian theory before you see man fully upright and walking. Our motto Audere est facere was non-existent under Sugar after he saved the club with it now being replaced by 'close, but no cigar'.

    The business model has no doubt been very shrewd but it has once again back fired on us. However, what goes up most come down and if you look at Tottenham trends over the past 15 years, there does seem to be a bust before a boom (Hoodle/Pleat bust Jol boom, Ramos bust Redknapp boom and AVB/Sherwood bust Pochettino boom). But one thing seems to be almost certain, if you want to win leagues and Champions Leagues, you need spend big and we have a manager famed for that. However, his most famous and initial success was with a team in a similar position of our own, well, in the Champions Leage at least.

    Whether Levy staying or going is the answer I don't know but what I do know is the close but no cigar may be rid on the pitch if it is rid off the pitch.

    That's not how corporate finance works.

    Big money will come in 3-5 years. We're already exceeding expectations by challenging for top honours despite the stadium constraints. One final push to maximise the sponsorships. Be patient. Never a better time to be a spurs fan. We're nearly there.

    Didn’t Arsenal fans think that after their stadium was completed? I may be alone in thinking this, but new stadiums have not proven to be golden tickets to trophies. Success on the pitch usually breeds more success on and off it. I can’t help but wonder if Enic had invested more in the squad earlier we would be in a stronger position now.

    It certainly helped them increase their wage bill and hold onto in demand players

    Great so they held on to Mesut Ozil. Didn’t bring them trophies though.

    I'm agreeing with you that it will probably have limited impact on our transfer budget but might allow us to spend more on wages. Where we do have one up on Arsenal and all other Premier League clubs is that our match day revenue is so much higher because people are spending longer, and spending more, in the stadium.

    Oh its very different. Arsenal was attracting and paying top dollar before their new stadium was built.

    Look we are able to retain Kane quite comfortably now.
    If we had kane and the old WHL I would think we'd see him go like Sheringham, Berbatov, Modric and Bale, where we had no choice.
