We are writing to you in light of growing supporter concern about the situation at Spurs. There are many concerns around the direction of the Club, on-field results and performance, the current managerial situation, investment and transfer strategy. This is exacerbated by a lack of communication with supporters. These questions reflect the concerns raised with us by Spurs supporters and the issues which they wish us, as the official independent supporters’ trust, to raise with you. We urge you to take this opportunity to engage positively with the concerns of Spurs fans and provide open and constructive answers to these questions.
1) Will the Club share its medium and long-term strategy for success, both on and off the pitch? How is the Club measuring progress and how does it judge current outcomes against those measurements?
2) The manager employed by the Club has not signed a new contract and tells us that we should lower our expectations about on-field outcomes. He has said publicly that the Club needs to spend big money every window just to compete. How does this align with the Board’s philosophy for achieving success?
3) Are you satisfied with player recruitment in recent transfer windows and with the performance of the youth teams and the development and supply of younger players through to the first team? Are there any plans to improve this?
4) Does the Club have a plan for further investment to ensure that the Club remains competitive on the pitch in the face of substantial additional investment by other Premier League clubs? Is the Club closer to securing a naming rights provider? Is there a plan for further investment from ENIC, or from other potential investors or buyers?
