Do they need 16m that badly........of course they do and thats why they cannot match City/United and Chelsea and be a "super club"

30-03-2007,
On the back of record pre-tax profits in the last financial quarterly report, a league table of charitable giving shows Spurs to be the great philanthropists we all know they are.

The league table of Premiership giving, which ranks all clubs by the amount of cash donations to charity and what that represents in percentage of total income, shows we have given a staggering 4,545,889 (or 6.1% of income). This contrasts with Middlesbrough, number 2 in the league table, who have donated a measly 105,645, and our penny-pinching neighbours from the rough side of North London, who have managed a risible 26,795 (about what Peter Ridsdale pays to keep some goldfish).

In spite of their riches, Chelsea and Man Utd have managed 0.057% and 0.058% of total income respectively, and even more shocking is that nine clubs have given nothing at all.

If you're interested enough to want to see the full table and bask in the glory of winning something, it is at:


But while it makes me feel all warm inside to know that corporate social responsibility does mean something in our small part of the world, the debate I have for you is this:

If we are donating 45 times as much to charity as the next biggest giver in the Premier league, could we afford to be a bit less generous and pay back some of the people who really make it all happen? Ticket prices are going up again, whilst other clubs are freezing or reducing prices. As it is, I can manage to attend about 5 games a season because prices are so high, and this is after 15 years of visiting the Lane as regularly as possible. So would you like a little of the wealth back?
