Andre Villas-Boas sacked

Brought to you by William Hill


Tottenham Hotspur have had four managers in the last six years and will shortly welcome another to White Hart Lane after sacking Andre Villas-Boas, but was it the right decision?

Many people will be aware of the fact that AVB has the highest win percentage of any Spurs manager in Premier League history at 54%, with Harry Redknapp second at 49%.

After only just over a third of the games Redknapp was in charge of, it's difficult to take those stats seriously.

Spurs fans must be more concerned with the lack of goals their team have scored this season, the fewest in the Premier League's top ten by some distance at only 15 in sixteen games.

The defeats that Spurs have suffered under AVB this season are not just coming away from a game with no points, but the manner in which these defeats have come looks like the main reason for Villas Boas' departure.

Three big losses have come recently for the Lillywhites to key rivals, a 0-3 defeat to West Ham at White Hart Lane, a 6-0 demolition from Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium and a crushing 0-5 loss to Liverpool at White Hart Lane.

These defeats have been key in questions being asked about the Spurs manager.

Will they be able to bring someone else in and find the successes they have been lacking? Or should they have given Villas-Boas more time?
