The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) says the club’s board has turned down their request for a meeting to "discuss both the [club’s] short and long-term strategic vision".

THST’s request followed their calls for the immediate resignation of chairman Daniel Levy and the club’s executive board in the wake of their part in the failed European Super League, a chaotic managerial search over the summer and a mixed start to the new season under Nuno Espirito Santo.

“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," THST said in a statement.

"The club board wants to choose what it talks about, when it talks about it, and who it talks to.

“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."

THST said it would convene an emergency board meeting to discuss options before agreeing the next steps with their membership.
