Just me then?

Left horribly short again. No competition in various key positions.

Kane money siphoned into paying stadium off.

Never with this bloke, never

We've been a lot better the last few years but the fact we still have such poor quality in the squad shows how much we fell.
He absolutely has to back us in the January window now. To be fair we have done well in the last 2 of that window. This one will require one similar to the 2021 window with 2 key signings needed.

We know all this. It's just sad at this point. Don't really understand where the kane money has gone

We did some very good business in the summer which the club should be given credit for but not bringing in another CB felt like negligence to me. Sanchez wasn't the answer long term but more a fit in this system than Dier and Davies imo and once he left after our window closed just felt we'd be left putting square pegs in round holes if we had injuries/suspensions at CB. What's compounded it having both our CB's out at the same time.

Maybe the club felt they couldn't get in who they wanted and the plan was to ride out things until January when say someone like Lloyd Kelly might prove to be more gettable but no getting away from it, it has left us exposed in a key position, even more so once Sanchez left.

Ange has been crystal clear that he has the final say on who comes in and out and he will take responsibility for that.

He really could not have clearer, and yet...

It's as if the total rebuild and re-set of the club has been completed instead of being right at the beginning.

Fuck me, i'm Levy hater No1 and even I can see how ridiculous this is right now. Cor blimey.

You can’t be suggesting that Ange decided it was a great idea to start the season with 2 CBs that can play his style of football.

Sanchez was sold as a business decision, Ange might have been asked but the point is, he shouldn’t have been. It was leaving that position thread bare. I have no doubt that if Ange disagreed, Sanchez would have been sold anyway.

There was talk of paying / selling / Dier off all window as well, so how can it be allowed that if we get an injury to one of our CBs we have to rely on a guy that we deemed incapable during the summer. We can thank our lucky stars that a bid obviously didn’t come in for Dier, because again, I have no doubt the bean counters would have cashed in as well.

Sadly yet another manager will fall victim to his stinginess

Disagrees acting like we’re spoilt for choice in CB 🤷🏼‍♀️ 🤔
This season yes but he signed a 4 year contract and imo we are 3-4 signings away from having what Ange needs to mount a proper title challenge:
CB
LB
CM
AM/ST

This seasons injury and suspension crisis is also pretty unprecedented.

It’s always 1 step forward and 2 back with him. I’m tired of it. We are a football club. Whose fault is it that we are left short at CB?

No one can convince me that football people made the decisions to head into a new season with only 2 decent CBs and gamble until January (more likely February with the way we do dealings). We had the money, it’s not good enough and shows why we always fall short.

We win game after game and this thread is quiet. We lose two on the bounce and why am I not surprised to see this thread back at the top.

I'm no levy fan but, it's almost as if Levy was on the field responsible for the performance.
We were short before today, we were short at Luton and Burnley and since the window closed - that's not changed.

We had an awful lot of clearing out to do this summer, I think the lack of a final CB signing could be apportioned to Levy but aside from that I think we did a good amount of business this summer whilst Ange was assessing the squad.

With the new DofF and chief scouts etc in place now I expect us to sign a few in Jan and a good few more next
Summer by which point I think we should be in a strong position going into Ange’s 2nd season.

If we sign just 1 or no-one in Jan and are left short next summer then this thread should be opened up again but right now I’m not so sure it’s as valid as in the past tbh.

IIRC the ITK at the end of the window indicated that Ange was quite miffed at only getting one CB in. In fact I remember Ange saying in many an interview during pre-season that he wanted more than one in.

I think the bigger problem is that up until Monday, we all thought this season was going to be a lot more than a stuttering rebuild season. The new players came in and the style of play has kicked in impressively. We all knew that we were only a couple of injuries off things going tits up but hoped we'd make it until January with only a few suspension's etc.

Now we've lost our new CB and our creative #10 for at least a couple of months. Today we also had our main CB and our only real LB also missing, seeing us draft in players who are not as suited to the system. We played worse today than we have all season and it brings into sharp relief how much work is needed on our squad just to be able to play football the way in which our coach wants us to. Four of our starting lineup today aren't suited and likely another two of the subs likewise.

It's because we always knew it always come back and bite us on the arse

I'll say it again, Ange was crystal clear.

Everything else you've said here is guff.

Every fan has the right to voice their opinions and critique the decisions made by individuals within the club, including Levy. However, what I find disheartening is the continuous stream of negativity that seems to lack fairness and appreciation for all that Levy has done for Tottenham Hotspur.

Levy's contributions to the club have been extensive. He spearheaded the construction of the cutting-edge Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, providing the team with a world-class home. His commitment to financial stability has shielded the club from the financial pitfalls that have affected others. In the transfer market, while not without controversy, Levy's negotiations have brought in key players at competitive prices.

Under his leadership, we consistently been a formidable force in the PL, securing European football and challenging for domestic honors. The journey to the UCL Final in the 2018-2019 season is a testament to the progress made under his tenure.

Moreover, there has been a renewed focus on youth development, aligning with the club's traditions and nurturing talent from within.

To witness such a significant figure facing relentless criticism without due acknowledgment of these accomplishments is disappointing. It's crucial for our fan base to engage in a more nuanced and appreciative dialogue that considers both the challenges and the achievements. Constructive criticism is essential, but let's not lose sight of the broader picture and the positive impact Daniel Levy has had on our beloved club.

No surprise as to who disagreed with this. 👀😂
