Andre Villas-Boas (July, 2012 – December, 2013)

The Project Cut Short

Sacked by Chelsea in mid-season, Villas-Boas was given a reprieve by Daniel Levy. He brought organisation to the team but it lacked style and even with Gareth Bale in the form of his life and a record points tally for the club in the Premier League, Spurs fell short in the race for the Champions League.

The departure of Bale and seven new signings in the summer of 2013, totally changed the nature of the team. As players struggled to adapt to the intensity of English football, AVB produced a sterile style of play which frustrated fans and following heavy, lacklustre defeats to the top teams, AVB was sacked in December, 2013.

Tim Sherwood (December, 2013 – May, 2014)

It Was Only Temporary

Another former player, Sherwood was promoted from within and brought an immediate improvement in results and performances, including success at Old Trafford. The team continued to struggle against the top-4, taking only 1 point from the 8 games against Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal. Given an 18-month contract, there was always the thought that Sherwood’s time in charge would be brief. Outspoken in the media, too many disappointing displays and a 6th placed finish brought the inevitable sacking.
