There is only one thing weirder than posting on internet forums... lurking on internet forums!
Registration only takes a minute and removes most of the adverts. You're here now, you might as well...
no but you dont get the brand new logic. successful players are always handpicked by managers. if they fail, its Levy.I guess no one wanted Bale, Modric, Berbatov, Eriksen, Lloris, Vertonghen, Chadli, Lennon, Walker, Carrick or Ginola? They were presumably forced on our managers??
Well we won more trophies with Scholar, and more prestigious ones to boot, than we have with ENIC/Levy.If you think Levy's a clown you really need to look up Irving Scholar.
IF you want to misquote me to boost your argument, then I am not going to argue with you. I suggest you reread my post and alter yours accordingly if you want a sensible argument on this.Scholar got one or two things wrong? He nearly ended the club.. Anything he ever achieved was wiped out when he nearly bankrupted the club, oh and took a loan from Robert Maxwell.
I don't get your logic at all, Scholar literally took us to the brink of destruction, but we won cups so that makes him better than ENIC?
Im sure he would care what you think.Yeh and southampton spent 50m on players, look how that turned out. I'll keep marking out that clown levy. He is holding THFC back with his selfish penny pinching and ego driven transfer activity.He sees sell on value, but dosen't see link up play. I;d like to sit the little ***** down one day and have him tell me the difference between a no 10, a natural pace winger, box to box midfielder, a creative midfielder. Truth is he wont know didly squat because all he sees is raw stats and thinks he is playing football manager.
Scholar was worse than Campbell, Wenger and Henry combined, none of those nearly ruined the club. If he'd been in charge any longer we wouldn't be having this discussion because there would be no Tottenham Hotspur.Better an Archilles , than to glory in accountancy .
If Levy/Lewis was in charge then , Hoddle , Ardilles sold , no Gazza , no silverware.Scholar was worse than Campbell, Wenger and Henry combined, none of those nearly ruined the club. If he'd been in charge any longer we wouldn't be having this discussion because there would be no Tottenham Hotspur.
Pre Sky : Scholar (when football was down to natural progression)Well we won more trophies with Scholar, and more prestigious ones to boot, than we have with ENIC/Levy.
Under Scholar, one UEFA Cup and one FA Cup. Under ENIC (or English National One Cup as I like to think of them), one League Cup.
In the Lge, two or maybe three third placed finishes, IIRC, under Scholar. ENIC zero top 3 finishes.
Moreover, Scholar achieved all that in 9 years. ENIC have taken 14 so far to achieve much less.
It's true Scholar got a lot wrong, and I'm not here to particularly defend him. But his trophy and top lge finishes record is WAY BETTER than ENIC/Levy.
Oh and we often finished above Woolwich in those happy days and were considered the London glamour club, not a lacklustre 3rd behind Chelsea and Woolwich like we are now. We were light years in front of Chelsea in that era, and could go to the Bridge and laugh at what rubbish Chelsea were. If you could get past the 'electric fences and walk of death' on the way there that is.
PS for those who don't know their history, Chelsea didn't really have 'electric fences' but one of their chairmen wanted to install them there.
'The increase of hooligan incidents in the 1980s led chairman Ken Bates to propose erecting an electric fence to deter them from invading the pitch, a proposal that the Greater London Council rejected.' (Wikipedia)
