    The irony being that the fact they are looking for investment from people and companies is basically an admission that we need outside cash to compete.

    The funny thing being we already have an owner and company in place that between them have unbelievable amounts of cash behind them, so much that we could spend that £400m under ffp that we are permitted to and they would hardly notice.

    But guess what the person and company that owns us are unbelievably tight fudging clams, who wont unlike so many owners put in their own money. No they want to find another person or company to do that for them.

    Utter clams

    Levy started enic. With investment from his family, lewis and others. He runs it. They invested in a lot of things. Lewis and levys family bought out the other investors. Enic then sold a lot of their other investments to buy spurs.

    Levy isn't a multi billionaire. Lewis is but most of that is his main company tavistok.

    There is a huge difference between having cash and being wealthy because of something you own. You may own a house in london worth £500k. But you have 10 years of a mortgage left to pay. Doesn't mean you have cash to splash. You can remortgage to build an extension to add value. But only to a limit.

    So levy can't fund it. Lewis could if he borrows or sells his company. Which he aint doing. We already have huge debt guaranteed by tavistok and tavistock is his first love.

    Yes there are owners out there that pump huge amounts of money into clubs. But apart from the wealth funds or abramovich who had to. The others are degenerate gamblers, borrowing to chase a dream, which if it fails they dump and walk away.

    Actually not degenerate, cause it's not their money they are gambling with.

    What’s in it for a outside investor for a small share though? I’m thinking naming rights and perhaps a share of non football revenue for some up front cash to support the team? So almost like borrowing against the extra revenue the stadium will generate over the next few years as we need an injection of cash to make the squad CL level competitive?

    The same as most investors. They think the value of their investment will increase.

    Look at la liga. They've just sold 10% of future tv revenue for the next 50 years to cvc.

    Its the same bs stories we hear year in year out and nothing ever happens. Probably got leaked by that pr director, whatever her name is.

    Just accept we will never do anything. The appointment of conte got me temporarily thinking otherwise, but in all likelihood ahead of next season he’ll realise what we have always known and then he will walk.

    Same thing that’s in it for ENIC…. Growth in equity value. So far ENIC have grown £100m to maybe £2b.

    So can I assume that you're happy with a club the size of Spurs lifting one league cup every 20 years?

    Wow, this thread was on page 8.

    Take a bow Daniel, for getting the acoustics and fan experience spot on in a large stadium.
    A friend treated a couple of gooners to corporate a few weeks back, and their words were, if their stadium is a 1 out of 10, ours is a 10/10.

    The atmosphere last night was without doubt the best I’ve experienced at spurs. Even better than when we beat real 3-1 at white hart lane!

    There was a poster on the gooner forum that said it was one of the loudest stadiums he'd been to in over 50 years of going to football.

    The night we beat arsenal 5-1 was amazing. The old WHL really rocked that night.

    Inter at home was amazing
    Also city at home this season was outstanding too
    Yesterday was different… it was all stating much earlier with genuine fear and expectation
    Some Fans were at the ground for 1pm droning in the area. The secret bar (we call it that) in the ground was quiet when we got in… around 7pm it was rocking.
    Unlike city, Madrid, inter I think we had expectation on our side as fans. We knew we could be the 12th man… and it worked
