As an example of the sheer stupidity of such posts.

 

"Stadium costs rise!"

 

Hardly a surprise to hear building costs rising....the price of a cup of tea rises or a ploughmans lunch....however to suggest we have bankrupted ourselves in the process is just stupidity and was suggested on here numerous times by the usual muppets.

To be fair, I think you might be exaggerating a tad. As far as I remember nobody has stated you have bankrupted yourselves. From what I remember, the main points made about the increasing stadium costs where how you intend to repay i.e. by putting up prices to loyal fans and that there won't be money for you to spend on top class players.

 

If you can find a post where someone has stated that you have bankrupted yourselves, then I must have missed it

To be fair that was the misplaced Brummie I believe who at least insinuated that.

 

Anyway we're talking about your daft transfers lad do keep up!

you're asking the forums very own Dianne Abbott?

 

And he's still clinging to that historic initial estimate of 400m to save face in what has been a truly appalling argument on his part..

 

I wish he'd just stick to subjects like financial doping in football or someone equally relevant.

I haven't made any argument, i merely posted a media report of spurs stadium cost increase - those reports are out there on good websites (BBC, Guardian, etc.) and will have been substantiated before being reported so you can be sure what's being reported is fact. It seems to have upset you Carmine.

I would say most clubs can't afford to pay that kind of money for squad players but then I remembered our injury prone midfielder.

 

Point is valid however....221m quid net spend last year.

 

Nice bit of sponsorship that is!

I put it down to jealousy....and on that note I hope your new deal is a good one cos I haven't heard any Bale or Messi rumours for your lot....not yet anyway.

1. Seems to be a big surprise to Carmine that your stadium cost has increased as he seems to be in denial.

2. Don't recall anybody mentioning the possibility of the increased stadium cost bankrupting Spurs, it was more the likelihood of it having an effect on your buying of players in the coming seasons.

3. I seriously doubt any of the City, ManU, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal posters on here are at all jealous of Spurs at any level - why would we be?

You do realise that Football Clubs are a business don't you? Your in the business of selling all your best players and we aren't. And by not selling our best players we win things and become more attractive to high paying sponsors, thus earning more money and not having to sell our best players. However, if Spurs ambition is to top the net spend on players league I am truly happy for you. How big is that trophy again?

Our ambition is to win the league and CL but in doing it we would be operating within our means.  Carry on about the net spend league as much as you like,  theres nothing wrong with operating within your means.  City should try it sometime and then we'd really see how good you are.

 

Sorry if that sounds so hard for City fans to stomach.  You just keep doing what you are doing, as hollow as it is viewed by others...then we'll all be happy.

I'm happy for you to find the post where you think i exaggerated and I'll find the website who quoted the amount i posted. Ever heard of 'don't shoot the messenger'?

So if you remember the post so well you'll have no trouble finding it and reposting it will you, and then I'll find the news report i took it from. I'm waiting.

 

 

Here ya go BB, from May :

I definitely am not salivating blah blah blah. I was pointing out that Spurs have a huge overrun in the cost of building your stadium...400m...to 800m...to 1.2b...and it would seem normal to have to curtail spending on players, etc, until such times as costs have been controlled, therefore the current team may have peaked as either players may need to be sold to get money to pay off the stadium costs or maybe no major signings in the next few seasons. That could be the reality.
