    AVB & SPURS,,, (will come good)

    Post by SuneJim on Thu Nov 28 2013, 21:01

    Right let's start with AVB, now the embarrissing defeat at Citeh on the back of the home loss to Newcastle,,, has been ideal for the press to start sharpening the knieves and for the fans who never wanted him to pipe up again and in the cut throat world of football we live in now i can understand that.
    But for me i'm still firmly behind AVB,,,, after all we have more points this season than we did at this point last,,, we are in the QF of the Capital One Cup and flying through our Europa League group so it can't all be wrong.
    My one gripe with AVB is the fact he maybe to fair as a Boss. Take Townsend for example who would have put him in there starting line up before the season kicked off i doubt he'd have been on the bench for me even. But he took his chance and AVB kept playing him, but he should have been dropped a while ago as his performances are simptimatic of our problems. He holds onto the ball for far to long and then does the wrong thing or shoots,,, off target of course. Or by the time he's looked up after a dribble everyone is marked after him not seeing there runs in the first place. He should have been replaced with Lamela ages ago, he's top quality waiting to shine but needs game time.
    Also i'm afriad the fantastic movement of City's front line showed all of Dawson's weaknesses and he does need to be dropped as well. Add to that the only position we don't really have a replacement in LB is where we've had the long term injury with Rose, but that's just a little law called SOD'S. Again though Sunday Navas showed Vertonghen doesn't really have the agility to be a LB we need to get him back in the middle with either Chiriches or Kaboul. So that begs the question why did we let Assou-Ekotto go on loan to QPR.
    But we will get it right in the end.
    Now onto poor old Soldado getting slated from all quarters,,,,,leave the bloke alone. He makes his moves early and never gets the ball, then has to pull out to stay onside and then when he comes out to get involved in the play no one takes his place in the box. That's down to the players still not really knowing each other yet.
    Capoue, Chadli and Rose being injured for so long haven't helped as i do believe all are important to the Team.
    Paulinho needs a rest as well. with all his travelling to Brazil and playing most of there game time.
    Plus i think AVB hasn't had a chance to play his best 11 even if he knows what it is as i change my mind every 5 minutes lol

    But i do believe it's something along the lines of,,,,,

    Walker, Chiriches, Vertonghen, Rose,
    Paulinho, Capoue,
    Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli,


    Friedel, Kaboul, Dawson, Sandro, Lennon, Dembele, Adebayor,

    So that's without Defoe, Holtby and Townsend,,,,,,,

    Now get that team playing together regularly to gel and we'll have no problems and all this AVB out crap will disappear and all the doubters can sliver back under the stones where they should be,,,,,,,
    Right i think that will do it and i feel much better getting that off my chest lol.

    One Man, One Life, One Team. TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR!!!

    Rep for Jim. Some of the vitriol spouted against AVB recently is pure spite from the Spurs unfaithful and the media who have never liked him since he came to Chelsea.

    The press have said he's arrogant but they love the specious one and who could be more arrogant than him.
    They say he always blames someone else but after Sunday he continually used the pronoun plural and so included himself in the "should be ashamed" comment.
    None of the doubters have come up with a viable alternative so it seems they just want him out for no valid future.
