It is somewhat old news. After all, there have been fan petitions demanding an end to it, numerous reports in the media questioning possible, any, gains out of it, the lure of huge swaths of money and preferred status has been bandied about, all of it for nothing. Zilch. I could have lived with it had it just been a bad bargain for us. But they have the nerve to spit in our face again.

I am of course referring to the infamous ‘strategical’ partnership between Real Madrid and the Tottenham Hotspurs. It is the explanation given to us as they have very strategically started to use our club as a feeder club for their own while giving us nothing in return. Don’t talk  to me about the money they paid for Bale. He is worth every single penny. And this is not about the money. This is about the assumption that Real is a greater club than ours.

Tottenham Hotspur is the greatest club in the world. And that is a fact. Any one who thinks differently is not a Spurs fan and my enemy.

Ok. I get why everyone may not think like that but I expect the Spurs management, owners and all stakeholders which include the fans to think like that. So why does not Levy come out and make a statement?? Come out and say that Madrid trade raped us, cheated on us with Arsenal and so we are ending this whole farce of a preferred partner club or strategic partner or whatever the hell they want to call it.

The deal with Arsenal behind our back when they sold Ozil just after completing the Bale deal. Come on!!!!!! I heard Levy was livid about that, but what happened??

They could not even loan us Morato. Hell yes the player will have his own wishes on where to play but Morato seems like a nice guy..why would he want to go to Arsenal?? No! I blame Real.

I understand that players may want to leave for bigger clubs or for more money. Fine. Just don’t let them move to Real. Not at least they give us Ronaldo for free. Or quite literally break the bank.

End Rant.

I usually understand the financial necessities that clubs have better than this and of course that all decisions need not be taken personally. I just cannot understand it today.

  2. I really hate it when people refer us as ‘Hotspurs’ – I usually call them imbeciles – how embarrassed am I when I see the reference made in our own forum !!! Never mind, well done last night – freezing but well worth it …. COYMS

  3. That said Spurs do come in pairs …

  4. Probably an American fan. They seem to refer to the club in the singular, as in “Tottenham beats Arsenal” as opposed to the local “Tottenham beat Arsenal”.
    I believe that “Cartlidge Free Captain” or CFC ( who says they don’t do irony) is a USA SB nation franchise guilty of this faux pas.
    Don’t get me wrong sir, you are a Spurs fan and therefore my brother.
    I salut no flag, only the chicken.
