Levy shouldn't have allowed the negotiations to get this close to the start of the season. Should have had a very public deadline for before the pre-season tour.

This isn't selling a LB at the last minute, it's selling the fucking captain 72 hours before our first league game.
DL can't choose. We are in a weak bargaining position.
Besides, I think both Ange and the squad had fully expected Kane to leave.
Otherwise something would have been agreed before; it's not like we didn't offer enough for the contract extension, but it's a stretch to hope that Kane would sign on given our demise.
In the end no amount of negotiation prowess is enough to reverse a declining squad.

It really isn't about this summer. This is more about the Espirito Santo/Mourinho/Conte appointments. Levy did the damage then when Harry had years left on the contract.

Now, with 12 months left. 100m is a good price for us.

But, let's see how we spend it.

This is my point. Im not supporting him and I would like him to leave. You're going to an extreme level if levy hate which means you can't see past the trees for what the club would benefit from

If I offered you 100 million now for an asset or you were guaranteed to get 0 next year what would you take?

Also as someone with mental health issues it's a good thing to make light of the issue so that people start talking about it.

I genuinely wonder if other fanbases bang on about assets and business terms as much as actual football like we do on here, or if we have been uniquely conditioned by our ownership?

100m would have been a good price 3 weeks ago. 3 days before the game is negligence

The thing is, at this point, we cant spend it. We have like 35+ first team players. We have to sell. A lot. And Levy sets the most unrealistic of prices.

We’ve been conditioned. Every other club bangs on about trophies, we bang on about “oh but if we spend a single penny, we could do a leeds.” It’s remarkable but its exactly what the club want it to be like.

Agree that the damage was done in previous seasons by failing to invest properly in the squad and making poor managerial appointments. Expecting Levy to turn down the chance to sell Kane abroad for €100m with a year left on his deal….never ever going to happen.

I'm sure people versed in assets / business do.

It's tough, a lot of people like the big name appointments when they happened but both went VERY sour. Kane was keen to go in 2021 and seemed ok when we got back in the CL with Conte. I'm not sure our situation with Conte is down to Levy is it? Conte was just a total twat.

I would love to hear which coaches we should have got instead.

It's not, a lot of fans on here get more thrills from the balance sheet and net spend than they do from winning trophies.
No, but some fans get a lot of joy by being negative, moaning fucks and want to proportion blame towards whatever suits their M.O.

This is just another pop at fans who accept the reality of our position.

Other people get more joy moaning about people not happy with the way the clubs running.

Sure you're enjoying Levy's fantastic stewardship through all of this and the position he has left the first team in before the 1st game of the season.

I don't know if it's intentional but you come across as extremely condescending.

He’s not a slow learner. He’s a grifter who keeps distracting us with one hand while he steals with the other.
And some of you were beginning to believe that he had learned his lesson, this season would be different and we had a reason to be optimistic. There is no Ying without Yang.

No, they’re not the names of possible Kane replacements.

At the moment there is no lack of demand even with Levy/ENIC as owners and no Euro football this season, last seasons General Admission ST holders totalled 42,504 , this season the figure is 42,701 an increase of 197 .
that’s clearly stagnation - especially given ST prices were held - and costs rose - the master businessman strikes again

Are refunds open for the Kane cop out?
