The Daily Mail note that Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas thinks it is time for the club to move forward and forget about the Gareth Bale transfer saga once and for all.
Of course, we may be mourning the close of the transfer window and all the gossip that was brought to us here in the tavern, but that is nothing compared to the North London club, who of course saw their star player, Gareth Bale, leave the club for Real Madrid.
As one of our punters quips, we should not feel too sorry for Spurs, as they did get a heap of cash for Bale after all and have brought in a whole load of top class talents to make sure their team does keep improving and moving forward.
Players like Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela are top class talents and the club also finally have a top, top forward to lead their line as well in the form of Roberto Soldado.
Now AVB has spoken out ahead of the weekend clash against Norwich City and as our landlord pours another pint of beer for our regulars, he shares what the manager has said:
“It is the end of the market, and it was a transfer which took so much time to resolve, but it gives us the possibility to focus on what is our work from now on. We just have to continue winning (now).
“After the defeat at Arsenal, we want to be back alongside the top teams. Most of them have lost points though, apart from Liverpool, but we want to be in the mix, so it (Norwich) is a game we have to win.”
Of course, given their influx of several highly coveted players, many people thought Spurs would be in with a shout for not only the top four, but the title. However, the Portuguese tactician has reaffirmed that the North London club shouldn’t be considered title contenders this term.
Is AVB right? Should Spurs not be considered title rivals this season? Let us know your thoughts below.
