André Villas-Boas Doubles The Lad’s Training

Good evening.

I saw this on Spurs Community and thought it well worth sharing given the dichotomy shall we call it on here given the last bloke in charge.

On area that was questioned under the last regime was training. 

Insinnuendos in relation to training and tactics dogged Arry’s tenure. It was rumoured that the wipe board was never used and that he picked a first eleven, got ’em to run about a bit and then it was time for him to lean out his car window and address the world’s media. The rest of the players were the left overs and they were left in the cold. 

I think we all recall Krankie coming on that time after we hadn’t seem him for a dogs age and the bloke sweated up like a racehorse after only ten minutes. Shocking.

André Villas Boas strikes me as bloke who has a spreadsheet for most things in his life including his pyjamas. 

He’s got them at it, according to Matspur17…

First bit of ITK not very exciting but avb definitely isn’t messing around.

My friend plays a bit of tennis with David Bentley, at times.

He said for their preseason they do two footy sessions 9-12am and 5-8pm and fitness 1.30-3pm.

With Harry they only trained 9-12am even for preseason! (might explain how unfit we looked at beginning of season). He does have Banter though!

Everyone has been given a fresh start a few guys you thought would leave might stay now.

Luka however is not one of those.



  1. Getting withdrawl symptoms from the good news bonanza of the past few weeks which has ceased over the last couple of days.
    Hope we get our business done before they fly out to the USA and if Modric is going, the sooner the better.
    Berbatov available for 5 million according to his twitter page – anyone fancy a punt ?

    1. Be hilarious if we bought him for 50p and AVB resurrected his career.

      *Damn these wretched Lilywhite daydreams*

    2. absolutely lets get Berba for 5 million.AVB dont think will have him though.He strikes me as someone who needs players to work for 90 minutes but I thinkj Berba can make things happen in a short time more than anyone on the planet.
      Needs the support though of a manager

    3. Berbatov for 5 million? Yes please, get him in. His stats for the past season read: played 40, scored 27. He’d be good for a couple of seasons and at 5m, it’d be worth it.

        1. Even with thd new bunch of superstars, Berba is still by far the best player I’ve ever seen at the lane, at 26 that includes Klingsman and Ginola! Pure Class

      1. I would welcome Berbatov back but only after an apology to all Spurs fans first and his admission that the grass didn’t turn out to be greener on the other side.

    1. Couldn’t agree more. He was desperate to move to Man Yoo, let him continue to be a bit part player with them. He has burned his bridges with Spurs as far as I’m concerned.

      1. Are you of your cap, the days of cutting Steve Perryman in half and like a stick of seaside rock you find THFC all the way through are gone me old mate. We have or are going to sign an ex scum center forward, Berba was and is quality would help my beloved Spurs no end , no loyalty infootball anymore, for 5 mill I would rip your hand off

      2. If he scores away to Arsenal to win us the derby I’d massage him with a happy ending myself.

    1. May I recommend the Lewis, sir. It’s awfully good fun and if one runs out of bullets one can always whack’em over the head with it?

      *in best Michael Horden voice*

      1. Good choice! especially as they come with the belt of Bulgarii explosive devices, the Berbatov cocktail.

      2. ‘Wipe Board’ I always thought if was ‘white board’.., is it one of them things I’ve been saying wrong all my life? Damn

    1. Nice one!
      Shame he burnt his bridges with us but it’s done now and you can’t re-write history.
