Excuse me? You were the one who said "If you can't piss with the big spenders then you will likely get left behind". Well, guess what, Spurs haven't been pissing with the big spenders for a fair few years now, but we haven't been left behind, there has been no "mass exodus" and there is a plan in place (and proceeding apace) to considerably boost our income. There is so much pre-determined negativity concerning Spurs from some posters: * We don't pay enough wages = mass exodus * If we finish outside the top 4 = mass exodus * We haven't been "pissing with the big spenders" = left behind. The fact is that no mass exodus has happened and nor have we been left behind, but it's always "next summer" from some posters. No-one disputes that Spurs need to be able to start paying more wages and to win trophies. And even if one or two players do eventually leave for greener pastures - like Bale did, like Modric did - it won't necessarily mean the decline of Spurs, just as the years since they left have shown. We have a fantastic new stadium coming, we have a very good first XI, an excellent manager and a world-class training centre. I'm optimistic and think I have good reasons for being so.
