    The season they took over then liverpool did the treble and got in the cl. Not sure what enic could do about that.

    I wasn't digging out ENIC here or debating what we could've done about Liverpool or anyone else. I was just pointing out to Raziel that prior to ENIC coming to Spurs Liverpool were not earning 2 to 3 times our revenue as he had stated.

    Indeed. I think Sugar actually had the ambition but didn't have the right people around him to provide good advice (or perhaps didn't want to take advice from people around him). Him selling out when he did also shows that he didn't really have any idea of how big football could become as an entertainment business.

    They probably get those fees because it wouldn’t surprise me if they give 50% of it back through some kind of back hander

    Echo these thoughts 100%
    I would absolutely keep him another 12 months. And I would be instructing Paratici to plan for life after Kane next summer.
    Barring some sort of remarkable reconciliation, which I just can't see happening, I would ship him out next year. The ideal scenario being we win something/finish top 4 and he's suddenly desperate to stay. Instead we decide its time to part ways and he ends up somewhere other than Emirates Marketing Project, forced out and having to live with his decisions in the summer of 2021.

    Personally, I now want Kane out of my club, but even if they offer £150m I would not sell him until we have brought in our key signings

    I don’t think anyone did any the time in his defence
    But arguably he may have not been able to take us where we have gone… or possibly he could have
    Wonder if it’s something he regrets

    I dont want him out, but £150m is decent cash if we spend it well. Setting aside other money which we have and just spending the Kane money, we could be looking at something like:

    ----------------------Lloris--------------------

    ---Tanganga---Romero---Torres---Regulion

    -----------PEH----Skipp----Dele

    --------Martinez--Vlahovic---Son

    The big loser in all this is City:

    - if they sign Kane for £150m then it shows that with patience, you can take them to the cleaners
    - if they dont sign Kane, then they dont have a CF and they will be blamed by their fans for not signing Kane if they dont win trophies

    I know it's just teletext BS but there's a rumour going around that Lloris and Kane had a fight at Hotspur Way over all this nonsense.

    Most likely is, but I'd put money on Hugo winning that :D

    ENIC absolutely did (there's even the famous quoted line from Levy).

    I suspect he regrets the amount of money he missed out on ;)

    I'm not sure Hugo could win a fight against anyone could he?

    and yes it is just the usual twitter nonsense like the Eriksen/Vertonghen thing.

    Here is my quote "Liverpool have been above us and earned 2X-3X our revenue per year for the better part of 3 decades" i.e. pre ENIC and during ENIC

    You managed to pick the only year that I can find that Pool earned less than us, I'm going assume something weird happened that year and it's one off (and you didn't pick it purely for that reason

    The year before Liverpool earned more than us and were in the top 10 richest clubs in the world (Deloitte money league)
    For the following twenty years Liverpool have been in the top 10 every year, we have been in it only 3 times (so 20-3 in top richest clubs)
    In 2001-2 they had already tripled their revenue from 97-98 (it would take us until 2006 to reach their 2002 numbers)

    Are we really having an argument that Pool has been a bigger revenue generator than Spurs? am I missing something, Liverpool football club has been a huge club a lot longer than PL/ENIC era.

    Look at me, I am training, see.

    Cuts quite the solitary figure there.
