  5. AVB takes tough option at Zenit

    Andy Brassell

    Only one side played with verve and adventure in Borussia Dortmund's Champions League last-16 second leg with Zenit St Petersburg and, for once, it was not Juergen Klopp's team. Zenit may have won 2-1 on the road, but lost on 5-4 aggregate to bow out...

  6. Tracksuit Tim needs to dress up his image

    Dan Fitch

    Spurs fans were divided on the merits of Andre Villas-Boas but one thing you couldn't argue about was his dress sense. A sharp, slim-cut dark suit, crisp white shirt and a skinny tie were the AVB trademark. I talk about him in the past tense as if...

  7. Is Sherwood destined to repeat the mistakes of AVB?

    Dan Fitch

    Andre Villas-Boas was sacked because of his tactical inflexibility. Tim Sherwood should be wary of falling into the same trap. Sherwood's switch to a 4-4-2 has been refreshing and effective, but it was always doubtful whether it would prove succes...

  8. Unlike Moyes and AVB, simple approach has paid off for Sherwood

    Michael Cox

    Tottenham's dreadful record at Manchester United was once one of the Premier League's most famous pieces of trivia. Like no Englishman ever winning the Premier League as manager, Robbie Fowler scoring the Premier League's fastest-ever hattrick, o...

    MANCHESTER -- Tim Sherwood is truly the anti-AVB. The tactical cage has been thrown open and Sherwood's Spurs have brought risk-taking entertainment back. For the second season in a row, Tottenham have a victory at Old Trafford to celebrate: 3-2 last...

    Gabriele Marcotti

    Tottenham Hotspur lost 5-0 at home to Liverpool on Sunday, and less than 16 hours later, Andre Villas-Boas was no longer in charge at White Hart Lane. In situations like these, many ask whether the manager "deserved to go." Only that's the wrong q...

  12. Just like AVB, Levy keeps making the same mistakes

    Dan Fitch

    Only last week I questioned why Andre Villas-Boas still seemed to be under extreme pressure, despite bouncing back from the Manchester City defeat to record good results against Manchester United, Fulham and Sunderland. I came to the conclusion th...

  13. AVB light fades from sight

    John Brewin

    The crestfallen shake of the head said it. As red-carded Paulinho sloped down the White Hart Lane tunnel, Andre Villas-Boas stood stock still. The usual frantic hand gestures and bellows of instruction were absent, the crouch of contemplation long go...

  14. Why do AVB rumours persist even when Spurs are winning?

    Dan Fitch

    Following Arsenal's draw with Everton, Tottenham Hotspur are just eight points behind their rivals. That's a decent-sized gap, but not that big when you consider that Arsenal are playing as well as they have for years, while Spurs have been strugglin...

  15. Walker, AVB get it right vs. Sunderland

    John Crace

    The relief at the final whistle was unmistakeable. Andre Villas-Boas smiled and pumped his fists while the players grinned and hugged. After the 6-0 humiliation at the Etihad, the pressure was finally off. On reflection, Spurs might now regret tha...

    Dan Fitch

    The draw with Manchester United was a creditable response to the 6-0 thrashing by City, but the side and Andre Villas-Boas still find themselves under pressure as they prepare to face Fulham. - Crace: Does AVB have a point? Spurs have now gone ...

  17. Does AVB have a point?

    John Crace
