Simon Jordan: This is the difference between Tottenham and Arsenal boards
By Danny Wright
Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has taken to Twitter to highlight the difference between the boards of Tottenham and Arsenal.
The Surrey-born business believes that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has control of what happens at the club while the Gunners are letting manager Arsene Wenger dictate things.
Jordan, 49, was responding to a message from Tottenham legend Graham Roberts on his personal Twitter account, who was claiming that Levy is the “shrewdest” chairman in the Premier League.
And as you know Daniel is probably the shrewdest chairmen in the premier league and everyone knows and acknowledges that in the game.

The ex-Palace owner replied on his personal Twitter account saying: “One thing I will say about Levy; at Tottenham, with Joe Lewis’ backing, he does run the club.
“Unlike the laughable board at Arsenal, whose manager does.”

Jordan is known for airing his controversial views on Twitter, but his latest comment is one that Spurs fans will no doubt get behind.
Wenger is yet to make a decision on his future at the Emirates after hordes of fans have called for the Frenchman to leave the club when his contract ends when the season finishes.
That, according to Jordan, is not the way a club should be run and thinks North London rivals Tottenham have modelled a great system under the leadership of Levy.
Spurs are currently second in the Premier League and will finish above the Gunners for the first time in 22 years after they won the final North London derby at White Hart Lane last week.
A 1-0 loss to West Ham on Friday put a huge dent in their hopes of winning the league though and Chelsea can secure the title with two more wins.
