This week I spoke to Manchester City blog Typical City about Sunday’s match.
The appointment of AVB was met with skepticism by some, including many Tottenham fans, yet he seems to be doing an excellent job. What are your feelings towards the manager?
Very positive. He did so well at Porto and then so badly at Chelsea (with some caveats), so there was an element of risk in the appointment.
Initially he made some questionable decisions – selling Rafael van der Vaart, trying to sell Michael Dawson, making William Gallas captain, picking Jake Livermore, staggering Hugo Lloris’s introduction to the team – but he’s got the results and has generally realised and rectified those errors.
Challenging for third place as late as April is as good as we could have expected from this squad. I’m excited about what he’ll be able to do when he’s made a couple of signings and has a full season at White Hart Lane under his belt.
