All the excitement, joy and anguish of the Premier League season and Champions League is behind us. So now we can now look forward to it starting all over again in August! There’s just no end to it! But between now and the kick-off of next season there are a number of questions that will preoccupy all Spurs supporters.
The transfer window will, hopefully, answer all of these questions. To be honest, these are the same questions many have pondered for the last three or four seasons. But this time the questions have a different feel about them.
Who will be leaving? Who will be arriving? Will the Chairman and the Board back the manager? Will every effort be made to take Tottenham to the next level? It’s quite probable that the answer to these questions, and what transpires during the next two months, will define THFC for several seasons to come.
The ‘different feel’ comes from the fact that THFC now stands at the crossroads. Which direction will we go? Do we simply consolidate on recent progress; do we do nothing and risk falling back into the waiting pack; or do we make a statement of intent that Spurs are going to push on and challenge for everything on offer.
Levy is a very astute businessman. There is no doubting that. During his time at THFC he has ensured that all of the groundwork required for a club to be a world force in football is now in place. This has been steadily achieved across several years. He will be aware that the success of any business depends on consumer demand for the product and that a successful business has to have a product that compares well with its competitors in the market place. THFC currently compares very well in that market place.
I don’t know which faces will go and which faces will arrive but I do think that Pochettino will be supported by the Board and Chairman. After all, at the end of the day, it’s good business.
