Some Tottenham fans praise club's decision over European Super League involvement and fan representation
Some Tottenham Hotspur fans were turning on the club after their latest announcement to have supporter representation on the club’s board.
In a statement on the club’s website, the outfit apologised for their involvement in the European Super League as well as announced plans to introduce key stakeholders from amongst the fanbase on to a club advisory panel.
It’s a plan which rivals that of fellow London club Chelsea, who announced last week that they would be introducing fan representation at board meetings.
However, the Lilywhites went one step further and criticised the Tottenham Hotspur Supporter’s Trust for failing to take up the club’s offer for a board-to-board meeting.
The move comes a week from the day Spurs welcome fans back into their stadium for the team’s clash against Aston Villa.
It’s all well and good having fan representation on the board and somewhat part of the decision-making process, however, you can’t help but feel as though it’s a bit of a PR move following the failed European Super League dibcle.
Here are how some fans reacted to the news…
Positive step from the board 👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿, if you are picking from the twitteratie please look at @pokeefe1 @THFCsince76 @LeeMcQueen (let’s get the crazy train back to WHL) Or @emmastorey81 @GaffneyVLC #COYS

The apology is a step foeward. Way too late and covered in excuses but still – credit when credit is due.
But criticizing the THST in an announcement about fan represantation is about leverage, not honest communication.
I stand with the @THSTOfficial.

That is step one.
Now it is time to lose Hitchen. We need someone who likes their job and is good at it.
Next, check Levy’s control over footballing decisions. Keep the books in the black, but he can’t be allowed to further hamper the club’s on-field progress.

Very well written I thought. They do get it- they just didn’t want to say it out loud. I look forward to sitting in the board to help bridge the gap .

Exactly the right move. Now to follow my advice and have the fans selected by a child controlling a giant arcade claw over the stands. As discussed scientifically on @Goalloungetv
