Overreaction Theatre: AVB WTF – Bring back Harry!

Early Doors

Remember when Tottenham fans were gloating about their superb summer transfer business and how Andre Villas-Boas had taken them to the next level?

No – us neither.

And of course when something is going wrong there is only one thing you can do: romantically reminisce about days when things kinda worked – remembering all the good while conveniently forgetting the bad.

A lot of Tottenham fans seemed pretty happy when Harry Redknapp was let go but now it seems there is a swell of support for his return after their 6-0 thumping at Manchester City. As for poor old AVB? He should probably look away now.

Yes, that's the same Steven Caulker who Redknapp used just once (in the League Cup, natch) and sent on loan to Yeovil. And Bristol City. And Swansea.

Villas-Boas can at least be thankful it is Daniel Levy in charge at the club and not one of Tottenham's former chairmen otherwise it could be a case of 'You're fired'.

And the old jokes are already being rehashed.

It could be worse though - AVB is at least likely to be given a chance to redeem himself. You suspect Joe Allen may not be as lucky. His Liverpool career could be over if the reaction of Reds' fans to his miss in the Merseyside derby is anything to go by.

Arsenal fans meanwhile are already dirtying Twitter with excessive use of the 'C-word' - No, not that one, THIS ONE...

Good win for Chelsea at West Ham but again it was their midfielders getting the goals. If only they had a couple of strikers who could score?

Finally, Crystal Palace fans got to celebrate a rare away win at Hull but the home fans weren't convinced they were in town for the three points.

Well done Hull on being named British City of Culture for 2017 and join us again for more Twitter nonsense next week.
