Daniel Levy has had a meeting with the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust, which they reported on after its completion.
This will likely have been done with the idea of putting points across to fans and getting them on his side, by giving them a greater understanding of his thinking.
However, there is one specific comment that has had the complete opposite impact to what was intended.
📰 Daniel Levy claims there is ‘little correlation’ between spending money and winning.
🤔 Do you agree with his statement?

The chairman claimed that there is “little correlation” between spending money and success, which plenty of fans are furious about.
One supporter has claimed that Levy is “so out of touch with the average fan”, while another has suggested that he is “laughing in our faces”.
The sense of feeling is that this type of attitude needs to be changed if Spurs are to start truly challenging.
Spending doesn’t guarantee success. Not spending guarantees failure. ENIC are failures.

What attracts the top players is wages!!! We don’t pay the going rate for top players! Therefore no top players.

Fans are seeing the winning of trophies as the way to gauge success and one asked “did I miss some trophies” in response to a claim that there was great success under Mauricio Pochettino.
There were also those who pointed to the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, showing how important spending big on star players can be in getting victory on the pitch.
When looking at the comments, it is clear to see that Levy has not helped his credibility among Spurs fans at all.
Weird how all the European Giants all spend big money and they’re the ones winning the leagues and cups

Yep, just look at Man City. All those years of character building in the lower leagues is exactly why they win trophies every year…

Absolutely trash. Of course it does! That’s why the likes of city and Chelsea have won more in a shorter span than ENIC’s reign. And @THSTOfficial just sat there like nodding dogs lapping it up
