Believe me there was no one in Old Trafford more stunned that Andre Villas-Boas after Spurs wiped the floor with United in their own backyard last Saturday. So much so that the Portuguese tactician resolved to punching himself in the face mid-celebration just to certify that he wasn’t dreaming. One thing is for sure and that is the North London club were on cloud nine as the final whistle blew to confirm their first victory at the home of the Red Devils since 1989. It was arguably Villas-Boas’ finest hour since taking over as Spurs boss and provided a demonstration of effect he has had on the players and club as a whole. To say they ripped the hosts apart with a deadly mixture of unrelenting pace and power would be an understatement as the United defence was obliterated with the midfield forced to sit and watch. Not many can say they’ve done that over the years!
This week on FFC is AVB running a huge risk playing full strength teams in the Europa League and which Portugal star won’t be coming to White Hart Lane?

“It doesn’t stop here. The emotions we were living (after the United win) are very inspiring and results are also good to build confidence. That confidence is good for us as we approach our next couple of games. We have two games at home now, and we have to improve our home form to make sure that this becomes a sequence for us.” Last weeks win at Man Utd is just the start for Spurs according to AVB.
