On Monday morning, Andre Villas-Boas was sacked from his post as Tottenham manager, which provoked a mixed reaction.
Some fans were saying he should have been sacked because of poor performances and inconsistent results, while others thought he needed more time and was building at Spurs.
Personally, I am glad AVB has gone, but I also want to see Daniel Levy and, in particular, Franco Baldini gone as well.
Levy is by no means innocent and has played a big part in Spurs' fall this season; after all, he was the man who signed AVB after his disastrous season with Chelsea.
Levy is currently looking for his ninth manager since his reign began back in 2001. Is that just bad luck or bad appointments? Well, if we look back and see some of the managers Levy has appointed which include Juande Ramos, AVB, George Graham and Martin Jol, I think it's fair to say they have indeed been bad appointments.
Levy has also annoyed fans by appointing a technical director of football. The one time Spurs decided not to go with a technical director was when Harry Redknapp was in charge, which wasn't exactly a bad spell for the club.
Current technical director at Spurs is Baldini. He signed seven players in the summer transfer window and, according to reports, AVB didn't approve four of them.
AVB was working with players he couldn't fit into his system. Is that his fault?
Was AVB the right man for Spurs? No. But was he just an excuse for Levy and Baldini's mistakes? I believe so.
