Spurs chased a one goal deficit at home against the Latics – a game they would eventually lose. Complaints about Villas-Boas’ tactics, philosophy, summer recruitment efforts and handling of certain players have all come under the microscope. From the outside looking in it appears as if the same pressure and expectation that ultimately defeated him at Stamford Bridge. Are the clubs supporters really that impatient?

This week on FFC should Emmanuel Adebayor be given more first team opportunities and which Dutch defender is on Villas-Boas’ wanted list?

Quote of the Week

“We needed the right reaction after the weekend and we certainly did that. The lads are delighted and we’ve got to maintain that form now going into the Premier League. This is another big game. We went there last season, gave them a good run for their money and probably should have won, but it wasn’t to be. We’ll go back up there full of confidence again after playing well against Maribor. We know it will be very difficult on Sunday and we’ll give it our all. We’ve played well away, we’ll prepare right and hopefully we’ll get the right result.” Gareth Bale wants Spurs to retain their confidence ahead of the meeting with Man City.
