So the cash flow crisis starts

Spurs needed a £175M loan to cover losses
Even at 5% interest quoted thats still a serious amount for a former rich club.Perhaps rebuilding White Hart Lane will impact on any signings

Scrap the transfer window

In the past the selling of players was a lifeline ,financially, for clubs struggling to pay creditors usually the HMRC tax bills. In the current climate of finacial uncertainty, maybe its time again to allow the sale and recruitment of players to revert to a whole season long one.

We have been going on the Turf for 55yrs and we've stopped going to away game because of persistent standing by fans blocking our view,so no away games.
