Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust claim that the club’s board have turned down a request to hold meeting

In a statement by the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) [h/t Evening Standard], the body alleges that the Tottenham Hotspur board has denied its request to meet and discuss the short and long-term vision of the club.

The Lilywhites have had a chaotic time in the past few seasons. The North London club hasn’t won any silverware in the past 13 years and a mixed run of form at the start of the season has worried a lot of supporters. Spurs have struggled to make a lasting impact and their recent form have put the management and squad under pressure.

The trust made its dissatisfaction with the current scenario pretty clear:

“With the government’s fan-led review into football governance about to publish its recommendations, the actions of the THFC board provide the evidence of why change is needed. The club board wants to choose what it talks about, when it talks about it, and who it talks to.”

Tottenham have had to face some issues ever since Mauricio Pochettino left the club who was on the cusp of delivering them a European title but finally lost to Liverpool in the 2019 UEFA Champions League final. He had a tough start to the next campaign and was subsequently sacked. The Lilywhites haven’t managed to qualify for Europe’s elite competition ever since the Argentine manager left.

The fans expressed their dissent and had also demanded the immediate resignation of chairman Daniel Levy after the whole European Super League debacle. There was widespread anger against the top clubs of the Premier League who had initially sought to enter this newly created football competition but withdrew due to the constant pressure that they were facing.

The Trust also spoke up about the kind of treatment they were allegedly receiving from the board of the club when they put forth their proposals and opinions:

“It’s a stark example of the reality of grace and favour relationships, and it’s why we worked so hard to develop proposals that could bring real change. The kind of historic change we hope the review takes the chance to deliver for all fan groups across the country.”

The fanbase plays an important role in any club as the team forms an integral part of the supporters and local residents. It also provides employment as well as a sense of pride to the local residents in the community. The management and board members could be walking on thin ice if they continue to disregard the appeals of the supporter’s trust and fans.
