Everyone has heard the rumours about Andre Villas-Boas, and his link to White Hart Lane. After reading a few forums, I have noticed that the general view is that he is either too young or not good enough for the Yid Army.
Sure, his reign at Stamford Bridge wasn’t the best, but should we really overlook a potentially great manager, based on nine months at a club who offered very little support to the Portuguese manager?
Personally, I think he would be an excellent choice, especially if Tim Sherwood is appointed Director of Football. Sherwood, having worked with our Youth academy, will no doubt be looking at having our young talent burst into first team football. Who better to fit those players into his line-up than the one who spotted them?
AVB took advantage of the talent of players such as Sturridge and Hulk, he knows how to squeeze the best out of young wingers to give an intimidating attack down both wings. With Gareth Bale (as long as he remains at N17) and Aaron Lennon topping the list on our flanks, full-backs will wish they never stepped out of the changing rooms.
It could also be expected that three centre-midfielders will be picked by the former Porto boss, with Modric and VDV as creating midfielders, and Parker playing box-to-box. An incredibly strong midfield, not to mention having the likes of Sandro, Huddlestone and Livermore on the sidelines.
Next up, our back four. Kyle Walker, Younes Kaboul, Jan Vertonghen (fingers-crossed) and Benoit Assou-Ekotto. With a “high pressure” defensive approach, which may be expected for Villas-Boas to deploy, will certainly leave attackers with no hope.
Finally, our goalie. Might we see the return of Gomes between the sticks? He may have had a difficult end to the 2010-2011 season, but otherwise had served his due for us well. Or we could possibly see the arrival of Vorm or possibly Butland to take over from Brad Friedel.
Overall, I hope that Villas-Boas is offered the job, as we could see a formidable team at N17, finally allowing us to stand alongside the giants of football.
