Have I stumbled on the Guardian btl comments here?
Spurs have played the whole season away from home, but still cruised the top four, are likely to finish top three for the third year in the row, could finish second (although I'm not counting on it) and have lost just three matches this year, to the Champions elect of Italy and the two Manc clubs, have three players in the PFA team of the year, etc. and have the best squad of players in my lifetime (including the double team of 1961), in which they have won three European trophies, one league, 6 FA cups and a few League cups (4, is it?). Next season they move into the second largest club stadium in the country to go with a great academy, etc. And yes they do have a wage ceiling, but they also have highly incentivised contracts with their top players, with lots of bonuses written in.
Does everyone really think that Daniel Levy and ENIC are doing all this just to sell out to the first billionaire who comes down Tottenham High Road? And would there be such a conviction if his name was Dave Lewis and spurs didn't have a reputation as a 'Jewish club'?
And if they do sell, who would buy? Another friend of Putin, Middle East rogue state or some American div? I just can't see it.
Sure the Premier League years have been less than stellar, and I long ago resigned myself to the idea that they will never be champions again in my lifetime, but they've gone from also rans to contenders in the last five years or so.
