Andre Villas-Boas is currently in his second season in charge at Tottenham and I think that this season is not going to be his last one at the club.
In this summer’s transfer window, Spurs may have lost their big star in Welsh winger Gareth Bale but with the amount of money received in exchange, Spurs made some very important acquisitions such as Erik Lamela, the 21-year-old Argentine winger from AS Roma, Christian Eriksen, the Danish midfielder from Ajax and centre-back Vlad Chiriches.
In addition to all this, we must not forget the transfers of Roberto Soldado, Nacer Chadli and Paulinho which were all completed during the early stages of this summer’s transfer window.
Prior to Sunday's disappointing defeat to West Ham, this season Spurs have made one the best starts in their history both in the Premier League and in the Europa League. They have a steady defensive line, a solid midfield and a trustworthy attack.
The problem with Spurs during previous years was that they had to focus their attempts on Bale and neglect others. This season, after Bale was transferred to Real Madrid, Spurs have been forced to look closer and try to explore the abilities of other players.
Therefore, this season, we can see that Tottenham are not only concentrating on the left-hand side of the field. They look to attack from both sides and through the centre, which makes it harder to defeat them.
Until now, Villas-Boas has done an extraordinary job in the management of his squad. They all get given their chances and no-one seems to be complaining. If Spurs do not suffer any severe injuries, I think that this is going to be their season.
I do not know whether they will be a reliable title contender but I am sure that they will finish in the top four. With the money that comes with Champions League qualification, Spurs will be able to maintain their squad and add more quality to take the team to an even higher level.
With all of these factors, coupled with Villas-Boas sitting on the bench for a few more years, I think that Tottenham can be favourites for the title in three or four years time.
