Andre Villas-Boas has once again had a pop at Roman Abramovich and the Chelsea board as he continues to try and rebuild "his reputation" at Tottenham.
He has his press conference, said what he said and that should have been the end of it as far as we are all concerned. I am sure Spurs fans just want him to get on with concentrating on their club and as for Chelsea fans, like our club, we have moved on.
So, in recent days I can't understand why he continues with having a pop at Chelsea and this time the traditions of the clubs and the involvement of people "upstairs"?.
When asked about the differences between Chelsea and Spurs, he said:
“There is more of a sense of belonging to a club. This is a club full of tradition, which I am still learning about and have to admire.
Chelsea has its own tradition that has changed dramatically since it was bought in 2003, and there is a sense of belonging here at Spurs which I want to use in a different way.
They are totally different clubs and propositions, with different ways of being.
I met the chairman and saw the way he goes about his business at the club.
He knows what he’s doing, approaching the market in a different way, and is a person of great football understanding – that had the effect of giving me the assurances I wanted in terms of building something.
I met Joe Lewis as well, a person of great warmth. Along with Daniel they have strong ambitions for the club and I share those ambitions.
Not only that Tottenham are linked with great football in the past. It is something they have always valued highly.
You can’t say they are the Barcelona of England, but there is a wonderful history of attractive football, and Bill Nicholson left these messages of football well played and doing things in style, which is what I want to achieve as well.
I think with an owner that is involved on a daily basis at the football club, with his knowledge, that is the main difference.
They are not looking for certain scapegoats, and when so many people are striving forward, it makes your job easier.
The thing is that what we were doing [at Chelsea] in terms of the project, words did not meet the actions, so I think I was cut short.”
One more time AVB - EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS AND FA CUP WINNERS WITHOUT YOU!. SAME PLAYERS, DIFFERENT MANAGER WHO KNEW HOW TO GET THE BEST OUT OF WHAT HE HAD WHEN YOU FAILED.
He says he was made out to be the scapegoat - he wasn't, it was HIS FAULT!.
It's all well and good spouting off again about Chelsea and talking up Spurs but I will tell you this, the Spurs fans I know would rather you deliver on the pitch than in press conferences and as yet, not all of them are 100% behind you.
Let's see what happens around March next year and see where Tottenham are as a club in the Premier League. Then we all will be the judge.
For now, shut up and get on with your job!
