Lot of fucking handwringing going on.
Like it or not Spurs are a lot better proposition than we are at the moment.
We shouldn't rely on the Brendan factor to seal the deal, incredibly arrogant if true.
More money. Brendan Rodgers.
Better team last 3 years.
Pathway to Utd still open.
Fewer players for his position.
Get over it, on paper it looks like a no-brainer.
I agree. Sure we have an unrivalled history, and what we represent in footballing terms is as prestigious as they come. But at this moment in time we are a far-cry from where we want to be. Spurs are closer to it than us, it's a fact.
So they offer you a significantly higher pay-package, in one of the greatest city's in the world, a guarantee that you will be a key-figure - which, he must be if they're willing to pay them wages - in a stronger squad, with probably more chance of development too. We don't know our potential yet as a team, Spurs do.
If he does go to Spurs, then so be it, good luck to him. He's not going to single-handedly fix our problems, just add more strength - and as many credible sources have claimed, we are after better options anyway. The only reason we were ever interested is because he is a player Brendan could actually be in for without disrespecting his former club.
