A heavily researched, highly detailed and unhurried opinion piece, my forthcoming journal article critcally assesses the entirety of Daniel Levy’s reign as Tottenham Hotspur chairman. A fitting inaugrual WordPress entry for myself, the piece takes both me and other Spurs fanatics down memory lane, particularly regarding playing staff. Indeed, a principal hope is that it’ll invoke sentiments along the lines of: what a player he was; as well as the odd: oh f**k I remember him, he was absolute trash!
Whilst on a more analytical level, I review his long-term ambitions, various successes and failures and, most extensively, the historic lack of contingency in regard to Levy’s managerial and player recruitment strategies. The latter a topsy-turvy journey which, since Mauricio Pochettino’s appointment in 2014 (10 years on from the true beginning of the turbulence), has stabilised markedly.
