🎙ToffeeWeb Podcast: ‘The Missing Piece of the Puzzle’

27/02/2023 17comments  |  Jump to last

The guys discuss the defeat to Aston Villa which had plenty of positives about it, all of which were negated on the day by the lack of a goalscorer.

They outline some of the changes they'd like to see made against Arsenal on Wednesday evening and then, for the Weekly Question, they give Farhad Moshiri marks out of 10 after 7 years at the helm

Terrible isn't it Jack when we have to clutch at straws looking at free agents like these.

Woefully inept planning as usual.

Free agents but we'd be paying through the nose to hire them!

Jim, you are not wrong.

I meant to score Moshiri. You guys are too generous. My award is 1. That's for the stadium. Keeping BK and Miss Dynamite in their jobs loses him lots of points. Appointing Allardyce and Benitez even more. Communicating with Jim White in those excruciatingly cringing and embarrassing phone calls loses points. Having Jim White as a mate loses some more. Finally comments such as Burnley was the only expected loss, losing him points leaving him with a generous 1. He loses the 1 if we are relegated.

I give you a toast - to the fans, ( who deserve 11 ).

Now this is what a forward-thinking, competent Board looks like:

Formula 1 and Tottenham Hotspur FC join forces to find the next generation of F1 drivers

Impressive Stephen, until you see Everton’s latest plan to have boat races down the Mersey, with the latest batch of refugees.

I think if we tried to build a racetrack under our new stadium it would be a very wet one.

The point I was trying to make is that the Spurs Board look at all avenues to improve the revenue and prestige of its club,attracting investment from all quarters and making their stadium usable outside of matchdays and making the area more attractive to visitors.

Tottenham were innovative from the start and not just by building, what I consider probably the best stadium in Europe, if not the world.

I've mentioned before, I used to visit them for regular meetings and talk with their CISO, as my company at the time supported them. The week before their test match with the U23s ahead of the grand opening, we got shown around.

He explained that their whole concept from the onset was to change the match going experience. Have superior eating and drinking facilities inside the ground to get supporters in early and keep them in afterwards to generate income. They have restaurants and what I believe, or was told, is the longest bar in Europe!

Not an outdoor fan zone in the car park. If you look around the Tottenham Stadium, there isn't a lot there. Well, not from what I've seen on visits. Reminds me of County Road; no disrespect to County Road.

I know we all have our match day rituals, I'm no different, and many of us will find it hard to let go.

But they had a vision and have pulled a blinder here. I know from a previous company, a partnership with Formula 1 will no doubt bring in significant profile and ultimately revenue. Add that one to the relationship with NFL and hosting of UK based matches.

I'm genuinely looking forward to Bramley Moore. It's going to be an iconic stadium on an iconic waterfront.

I just hope that incompetent board has had the foresight to think about how else we can use the stadium and has plans outside of it only being used a football stadium where supporters come in late and leave on the whistle?

Both inside and building a plaza outside to keep supporters in and around the stadium, whether they own or contract out, which is most likely but will still generate revenue. I don't know or understand the detailed plans, but they surely can't miss this opportunity? After the past decades and last several years, it's the one legacy they can leave us with.

I note that Liverpool has announced it will commit to the Paris climate agreement and to host events, such as concerts. festivals and I would imagine boxing, a licence will only be issued if the venue complies with the criteria.

Surely we are aware of this and have thought about it ahead. Which leads us back to transport links.

I'm supposed to be getting ready for tomorrow. I will do and will be.

Paul, I don't know about wet, but it be very sandy. I hate sand.

Stephen's point I what he said.

There are many options for partnerships for mutual benefit. Old Trafford for years hosting Rugby.

Liverpool, as much as football is the passion is very much a Boxing city. That might be an avenue to explore?

It’s also a music city Danny, and I’m sure everyone would love to play in the city that gave us the Beatles, in such a beautiful and iconic setting, especially during the month of June!

It might take twenty years, but Bramley Moore, is going to be a brilliant for the city of Liverpool, in general, I don’t think there is anything more certain than this?

Locadia, free agent touted as an emergency striker, which isn't going to succeed as we have Naupay! and Simms fit. Locadia played for Brighton 5yrs ago, and to quote my son-in-law (Brighton season ticket holder for donkey's years), he's another Maupay!

Probably media hype.

Take a point tonight, 😂😂😂, although we tend to play well against the top teams because they generally play open attacking football, unlike the teams in and around us who we lose too time and time again.

I believe Dyche was the right choice and he pulls us out of the mire. I remain optimistic that he will save us (just).
