Finally! At the fourth time of asking Andre Villas-Boas was finally tasting the sweet nectar of victory after his new look Spurs side chalked up their first win of the season to alleviate the pressure mounting on his shoulders. The manner in which the North London club dispatched their opponents last Sunday gave a brief glimpse as to the style and philosophy in which Villas-Boas is still attempting to integrate. Moussa Dembele proved he has the creative talents to make Luka Modric’s name a distant memory at White Hart Lane while Jermaine Defoe continued his excellent start with two goals and another impressive display as a lone frontman. Results were never going to be instant and it was always going to take a few games for the players to acclimatise to Villas-Boas’ master plan. But on the evidence of their performance last Sunday the pieces are finally falling into place.
This week on FFC Jan Vertonghen’s start to life as a Spurs player is put under the microscope and is Benoit Assou-Ekotto’s injury a wake up call?

“It does seem a long time since I won it with Porto. A lot of things have happened since then. The memories are still present but at this time I can’t live off the past. In our position we can’t think too much about the past. In this life you constantly have to motivate yourself and put pressure on yourself to win more (trophies). This time it would be wonderful to win it again for Tottenham.” AVB states it would be ‘wonderful’ to win the Europa League with Spurs
