Tottenham have stated their intent this transfer window and have fully backed new manager Ange Postecoglou with several statement signings, and it appears Daniel Levy views him as part of a long-term project.

The Spurs managers which followed Mauricio Pochettino were never truly gifted the resources to launch the aggressive rebuild the squad was desperately in need of, and therefore were tasked of overachieving with an ageing squad.

Jose Mourinho was brutally sacked right before a chance to win silverware, and Antonio Conte departed in March after a furious rant which indirectly insulted Daniel Levy’s tenure.

Finally, the wave of pessimism and mediocrity is starting to pass, and fans are encouraged about new management. Ange Postecoglou is determined to change the perception in N17 and breathe a fresh style of attacking football which has been absent for four years too many.

Daniel Levy has spent considerably more in this transfer window than years prior. The loans of Pedro Porro and Dejan Kulusevski were finally made permanent, along with James Maddison, Guglielmo Vicario, Alejo Véliz, Ashley Phillips and Micky van de Ven.

The window is not completely over yet, and money has been thrown at a rebuild. There has also been a clear direction for young talents and investing in the future, while also investing in positions that desperately needed attention.

The significant backing in this transfer window tells the fans that he is ready to trust a manager all the way. Daniel Levy will be fully aware that he did not invest fully in the two previous long-term managers and that had an effect on performance, and his eyes will also be aware of the clubs surrounding Spurs throwing money at the market to improve league position.

The Harry Kane saga was far from ideal for Spurs. The striker ultimately sold the striker at a dreadful time, which has had an effect on preparations for the season.

However, this had clearly been planned for months, and our latest signings have reflected that. Blaming Daniel Levy for selling our best-ever player at the highest price is ludicrous, and selling Kane now was simply smart business.

It is fair to say Daniel Levy failed Harry Kane long-term though. Kane’s ambition was never matched in transfer windows, which hampered any potential progress that was to be made.

In this case, many supporters will not forgive Daniel Levy, but the Spurs chairman deserves praise with the investment in this transfer window so far.

One thing is undoubtable – Daniel Levy is desperate to not see Spurs left behind. He has had critiques in the past, and protests have been justifiable at times, but this summer he deserves credit.

Levy has never been a let-down as an operator and has made Tottenham Hotspur a successful business. His lack of investment and sporting decisions have typically been detrimental, but it feels as if he is finally ready to invest on the pitch.

A new era of Tottenham Hotspur under Postecoglou

Ange Postecoglou must be here to stay for plenty of years. Unlike previous coaches, he is bound to be given time, even if Spurs majorly underachieve.

Patience might have just entered the vocabulary of Daniel Levy, who is now aware that a project needs time and backing over a significant time scale, and hiring an elite manager does not turn results around immediately.
