Spurs: Alasdair Gold shares update on 2022 financial report

Tottenham Hotspur are yet to release their financial statement for 2022, which will include a message from Daniel Levy – but Alasdair Gold believes the club have already completed the report.

What’s the latest?

The north London club only released their 2021 financial report in November last year, however, there is a growing urge for the club to release their statement for last year.

This has seen the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust write to the club write to the club in which the board have replied claiming the report will be released in February.

This raises the question of why the club would be holding the financial reports back with Gold claiming on his latest YouTube video that the report is all but completed.

And with the club saying Fabio Paratici will release his own statement on the completion of the January transfer window, Gold shared what he has been told from those inside Hotspur Way regarding the financial report:

“I’ve been told this from various people inside and around the club, that those, the financial kind of results, whatever you want to call it, statement, have been pretty much all done and dusted for a little while now.”

” I think the item presumably, I would assume the logic is that for selling clubs, not to know how much money Spurs maybe have. That would be my thinking behind it.

“My counter to that would be they’re a Premier League club. Most European sides assume that they’ve got a fair whack of money to spend.”

What’s the hold-up?

It is slightly odd to see Spurs holding back their report until February and leaving their own supporters in the dark when they have revealed big financial updates in the not-so-distant past.

Only a matter of months ago, Spurs released the statement that ENIC would be putting forward a £150m investment into the north London club.

And they announced this before the start of the summer transfer window with the statement available for all potential selling clubs to see.

Is the Spurs board frustrating the fans?

Yes

Yes

No

No

There could be the presumption that Spurs do not want other clubs to know their financial state amid the January transfer window, so clubs perhaps do not demand even more in the players Spurs show an interest in.

However, this is the case already with their reported interest in Pedro Porro as Sporting CP are seemingly unwilling to budge on anything less than the player’s release clause.

So with that in mind, is there any real harm that can be done by just releasing the reports this month?

And as Gold suggested, Tottenham are a big Premier League club who are playing Champions League football in a 62,000-seat stadium, clubs will know they are unlikely to be struggling for cash this month.
