Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
Like you Joe, I've said he should be given a fair chance, and I think he's doing a good job considering the new player's and injuries he's had to manage. I'm amazed some people think we're a shoe in for a top 4 place when you look at the quality we lost and bedding in the new boy's, having key player's missing for large part's of the season. AVB made mistake's early on as he got to know the player's, but some judged him without any thought HE was new as well. I look at the team against Newcastle and think he would of got slaughtered had we not won, seeing Naughton start over BAE and Caulker over Vertongen, but he obviously thought the extra pace they offered was benificial for that game, and thats what a manager has to do, pick a team HE thinks can do the job. I think he could become a top manager once he gains enough experience but maybe not with us, because as soon as we go through a lean spell, he will be hounded out by media and fans alike. I judge him on what he doe's over a couple of seasons, and not on media biase as some do.

I'm totally with you Remmah, we're 1 point of 3rd and only 5 points of 2nd.
I just can't believe the diatribe he gets from so many soo called Spurs fans, from the press yes but not our own supporters. Stop whingeing all the time and get behind the club, that means all the players, staff, management and the board. Tottenham Hotspur haven't been in such a solid position since the 1980's and even then we had money problems.
Yes he has made mistakes but he appears to be learning all the time.
Yes HR had us playing great football but he never won anything and lost us 2 years of CL.
COYS and supporters!!!
Im with you Joe i think AVB is a good coach doing a very good job,would i swop him for Harry? not on your nelly.
I see our main stumbling block being Levy not willing or able to push on to the next level he is trying to play with the big boys on a shoestring. If we had got a class striker in Jan as AVB wanted i think top four would have been a cert now im very uneasy.
I was excited by AVB's appointment now let's hope that isnt dashed by Spurs not doing the blindingly obvious as usual. COYS
