A letter addressed to me

My 'One Hotspur' official membership pack includes a rather dubious letter from the chairman. Now, I'm not naive and quite clearly understand that every season ticket holder has received a replica copy. Printed signature rather than personally signed, of course. More evidence displaying that Daniel Levy doesn't truly care about the fans. Anyone can mass produce letters and have their signature printed on it. Proof of how detached he is from the common man at the Lane. I've also heard that West Stand season ticket holders get a hamper consisting of bagels, pickled herring and Gefilte fish with their renewal forms. Us and them. It will never change while he sits on the throne.

Here's the content of the letter:

Dear Mr XXXXXX

It has certainly been a busy conclusion to another fascinating season and, as I write here is still so much to play for.

You could all see our development last season as we battled for a Champions League place right up until the last kick, while this time around our lengthy runs in the cups, and recent upsurge in the League, has resulted in some marvellous entertainment at White Hart Lane.

The special atmosphere our supporters create at the Lane envied by many and often commented on by our players. And your immense support on our travels in our first season back in Europe has been unswerving.

Thank you for your support and I look forward to welcoming you back to White Hart Lane again next season.

Daniel Levy
Chairman
Totttenham Hotspur Football Club

Have you ever read such drivel? Time for a de-bunk.

It has certainly been a busy conclusion to another fascinating season and, as I write here is still so much to play for.

'....as I write here is still so much to play for' - This is not the Queens English. Is this Levy's attempt at 'street talk' in order to appeal to the younger generation of Spurs fans? Pathetic. As for its message, by 'busy' Mr Levy surely means 'desperate' in that we are not in a comfort zone at this late stage of the season due to needing maximum points from the final 3 games. That and the fact that he is almost Jolish in his deliver by subconsciously hinting that if we fail its because we are set to suffer from fixture congestion.


You could all see our development last season as we battled for a Champions League place right up until the last kick, while this time around our lengthy runs in the cups, and recent upsurge in the League, has resulted in some marvellous entertainment at White Hart Lane.

Having to refer back to last season towards the end of this season, is confirmation that we don't have that much to sing and dance about, made even more ironic that last season was an abject failure. As for 'lengthy runs', this only serves to bring back memories of the build up to the West Ham game last year that saw us lose 2-1 and drop from 4th to 5th.

Upsurge in the League simply means we've started to win again after a woeful Christmas period. Surely winning is what should be achieved at all times, so upsurge refers to the fact that we were poor for a period of time long enough to affect the teams position - resulting with uncertainty over whether we will have UEFA Cup football next season.

As for 'marvellous entertainment', if getting dicked 4-0 at home constitutes entertainment then we are doomed. Twice we've failed to beat Arsenal and Chelsea knocked us out of the FA Cup. Seems that Levy is happy with this standard of 'entertainment'.


The special atmosphere our supporters create at the Lane envied by many and often commented on by our players. And your immense support on our travels in our first season back in Europe has been unswerving.

Yes, wonderfully special as we boo every touch Jenas (your poster boy) makes as he stumbles and fumbles all over the pitch. Or when we scream out in confusion when Jol makes questionable substitutions and tactical changes. And there's nothing out of the ordinary with our support away from home in Europe. We haven't been there for so long, its not exactly unexpected for a mass of Spurs fans to make the journey to second-tier continental clubs, desperate for a day out.


Thank you for your support and I look forward to welcoming you back to White Hart Lane again next season.

Oh don't you fret, I'll be there mate with bells on. I'm so fucking loyal to the cause that I'm willing to pay £609 for a season ticket just to burn it at the end of the season, then shower your convertible Merc with the ashes while you sit in the front ready to drive down the high road, showing my discontent at your continued mis-management of the club. And this time, I'll make sure to check the number plate. Not my fault that so many of you West Stand bourgeoisie drive flash sports cars.


Thats all for now.
