Tottenham are a club that are perpetually on the cusp of glory, close enough to get a glimpse of it but never really in a position to achieve it.
Fans of sides that make up the relegation fodder of our league may not be quite as quick to sympathise but, for many, being a Spurs fan seems like a somewhat thankless task.
Time after time Spurs embark on ‘projects’ only to see them prematurely abandoned, with the chaotic status quo restored. This summer will be exactly the same with the Premier League side looking for a permanent solution after the departure of Andre Villas-Boas.
Fans will be hoping for another mass overhaul with the promise of Champions League football back on the agenda.
But after a summer where over £100m was effectively wasted by those in charge, will Levy look to embrace austerity at Spurs?
