Villas-Boas faces vital winter period after Tottenham board talks

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is under increasing pressure as he prepares for a vital run of fixtures during the winter period after discussions with the board regarding his future, writes the London Evening Standard.

Spurs had to come from behind in order to take all three points at Craven Cottage on Wednesday evening against Fulham, recording their first win in the Premier League since October.


After discussions with the board, it is said that Villas-Boas has been told improvements must be made during the next run of fixtures, which sees Spurs visit Sunderland and Southampton, but hosting Liverpool, West Brom and Stoke, all in December.


Aside from those fixtures, Villas-Boas will also be examined on Tottenham’s progress in the Europa League match against Anzhi Makhachkala and the League Cup tie against West Ham.


After spending around £110million in the summer to replace Gareth Bale, the board were expecting Spurs to be higher than sixth in the Premier League, and after seven summer signings, most have shown little to impress.


Despite the inclusion of Roberto Soldado for £26million, Spurs have scored just 13 times this season, and as a result lie 10 points off leaders and rivals Arsenal.

Er...Spurs have already finished top of their group in the Europa league. They have won five games out of five. Even if they lose 500 goals to nil they will finish top of the group. How, then, can they be 'examined on Tottenham’s progress in the Europa League match against Anzhi Makhachkala'. How can he progress more than having already progressed? It is 100% progression...already! I disagree with most else of what you say, too :)

Mark. They are BALDINI's buys NOT AVB's. Baldini picked them and Lewis (via Levy) paid for them. Presumably AVB was consulted.

Absolute poppycock, THE LONDON EVENING STANDARD wouldn't know the truth if it smacked em in the mush. AVB is safe, The Spurs board have invested 100 million on AVBs players so why would they sack him just because the team needs to gel?
