Two weeks ago, André Villas-Boas‘s job was reportedly being reconsidered by the higher ups at White Hart Lane. And this wasn’t a process that was being reported by the print anything, headlines-over-substance tabloids around London. These headlines, appearing in England’s more legitimate outlets, seemed to have something to them, Spurs’ 6-0 loss at Manchester City pairing with Villas-Boas’s obstinacy to create some strain in North London.
Fast forward to today, and Spurs are unbeaten in three, winning their last two on the road. A team that scored only nine times through their first 15 matches has scored six goals over the last 270 minutes. Perhaps the City loss was a wakeup call, or maybe Villas-Boas has made big (if somewhat unseen) changes. Regardless, having briefly dropped to ninth, Spurs are back in sixth place, only two points off a Champions League spot.
With Spurs having moved beyond their crisis, NBC Sports’ Robbie Earle and Robbie Mustoe talk to Rebecca Lowe about the current state of the team, our analysts considering how Tottenham can continue their late fall improvement.
