It's disheartening to witness this persistent inclination to seek out negatives, whether it's directed at Ange's progress in shaping our playing style or Levy's substantial contributions to the club's development. It feels like, at times, people forget the immense strides we've made as a club.

There's a clear tendency to overlook the positives, the progress we've made in playing style under Ange, and the infrastructural developments led by Levy.

The challenges we're facing today seem, in part, rooted in what appears to be a wave of ungrateful news and criticism from so-called fans. Amidst the achievements and progress, it's disheartening to see negativity overshadowing the contributions of individuals like DL, who have played a pivotal role in elevating Tottenham Hotspur. Let's collectively refocus on the positives, appreciate the journey, and support the club through both triumphs and trials.
I think people have every right to be critical about levy, while also appreciating the positive vibes and progress we’re making under Ange

everyone has the right to criticize Levy, but the constant barrage of negativity that I'm seeing here is not fair. It's truly disappointing how a fan base can become so ungrateful towards someone who has contributed so much to the club.

We have to strive for a more balanced and constructive dialogue, acknowledging both the achievements and challenges.

I'm didn't think I would reply to a post of yours after your first couple abbout Harry Kane and his transfer but here I am.
I'm not ungrateful for what Levy has done...........
I'm pissed because he wont go that extra mile to alleviate problems like injuries when we have no real cover..... IE Centre back last window when they appeared to be available and not overly expensive by modern standards.
Seems forever a penny pincher in the end after all the effort invested in the stadium, training ground etc.
He could recoup far more money from having a winning team that's capable of ending up as champions/cup winners.

Next 2 weeks will be a huge test. In my opinion, we should completely punt the City game given our current depth.

Play all backups and play Conte ball to try to keep it to 3 or 4 nil.

Simply cannot afford to put 90 mins on Son, Gio, Udogie, Porro, Lolo, Sarr, Kulu, etc with the critical games against West Ham and Newcastle coming up 3 and 7 days later. Those are the games that matter.

I know it’s against everything we are to punt, but we absolutely need to. We can’t let City beat us 3 times.

Nice post but tbh most on here are very positive about Ange. There will always be fans and people who criticise and are negative that’s human nature default I’m afraid mate.

This is not the attitude to have whatsoever and Ange most certainly won’t be thinking like this.

But that's still not the same as saying that Levy stopped backing Poch when he started being successful.
And let's be honest, we were trying to build a stadium at the time that you are talking about but I do agree that our scouting, or at least who we've chosen to sign has been pretty terrible until recently.

This isn't a defence of Levy, just trying to avoid a misrepresentation of what actually happened.

Agree,

I’m saying if you don’t buy good players it’s irrelevant how much you spend,

And levy’s is a tight arse or is it just financial doping has given us bigger expectations

Yeah, and that's where we failed.
We still spent good money for a club of our stature, we just wasted a lot of it on bad signings.

Thankfully, I think Man Utd have outdone us on signing expensive duffers recently!

I'm a bit concerned about the new recruitment team because Gabs and Fab have done so well of late but as long as Ange gets the final say, we shouldn't do too badly.

This next window may well tell us a lot about our future.

We were a goal behind mate other wise I might believe that to be the case. It was a negative change simple as that, and again something akin to what Conte was doing previous.
What Conte was doing previous? Stopped fuxking reading after that!!

The knives are out for him now with some in the media, criticising his style of play etc.

Some have been gagging for this moment as if to be proven right with their early season predictions.

Yet not one of them is adding the caveat of being hamstrung by injuries and only being games into his tenure.

I fucking hate this modern day punditry where they need to make a bold predicition and wait for the moment to say "see told ya".

Cloughie was right

Just a friendly reminder that anyone who has something negative to say has just as much right to voice their opinion as you do when you say something positive. This is a public forum, we should be open to discussing ALL aspects of the club, whether good or bad.

I agree with this

Give a manager the tools he needs.

Regardless of what you like, I don’t like Conte and Jose the transfers did let them down

And yes, we should’ve hot another centre back

On the flip side the football is amazing to watch and we have a fantastic 11 when fit

Levy seems to get almost everything right so we are so close but fall short or get everything very wrong

In defence of him his built 3-4 very good teams in his time

Rednapp
Poch
Ange

And jols

He just needs ti learn to learn to back the manager more at times

For having an opinion that differs from yours? Nice one mate
It’s really disappointing to come on here and see fans being condescending to one another. This is a forum, it’s a place for sharing and discussing one’s opinions. You might not agree with them but there is no need to attack those whose opinions differ to your own. Twitter is awful but it’s got progressively worse over the years in here. I dread to think if we really start dropping down the league. Knives will be out again.

No matter the manager, there will always be the decisions the fans disagree with, for better or worse.

The situation we're currently in, with 3/3 starting midfielders and 2/2 starting CBs out and several other injuries on top of that won't be the norm. It probably won't happen again. And despite this, we managed to outplay one of the most in form sides in the league. When things start to properly click, shots go in instead of hitting the woodwork and offsides turn to onsides, we're going to hammer a lot of teams.
