The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust has been in the news a lot lately this week. The only club-recognized Spurs supporter's organization, the THST meets regularly with Daniel Levy and members of the Tottenham Executive Board to express concerns from Tottenham Hotspur fans and maintains a regular dialogue about issues important to (some) Spurs fans.
Thursday's meeting added an extra level of scrutiny after the disastrous run of form Spurs have had lately, as well as long-simmering news surrounding the Northumberland Development Project and a rumored one-year relocation to Milton Keynes. Fans are upset, other fans are upset about those fans being upset, and even the media is noticing the turmoil. THST released a short statement on their website Thursday about the meeting, but there isn't much yet to go on:
The Board of the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust met with the Executive Board of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club on 20 November 2014 for a scheduled Board to Board Meeting.
Key messages taken into the meeting were:
- Uncertainty over the stadium and ground share options
- Disconnect between the Club and Fans
- Clarity of ENIC's commitment to the Club
- Explanation of player recruitment strategy and philosophy
The Club engaged fully and in detail, making as much time available as was needed to complete the agenda, which was appreciated by THST.
The statement goes on to say that discussions were positive, there was detailed discussion about the new stadium, and that a more detailed statement will be released after the full minutes of the meeting have been distributed to all THST members.
So there you have it. The meeting happened, but we don't really know much about what was discussed. But we will soon, and we'll let you know once it's been digested a bit.
