Tottenham are a club I have always supported since I have been a kid. Having lived in Chingford,and subsequently near White Hart Lane for a small part of my life, as well as having many family members support the Lily Whites, I suppose you could say I had no other choice but to support such a great team.

Often overlooked by their North London Rivals, Arsenal, I want to be able to bring back the 'glory days' that made Tottenham such a formidable force. This was mainly during the time of Tottenham Legend, Bill Nicholson. His Tottenham side wrote History several times, including seeing Tottenham go on and win the first 'double' of the twentieth century when they picked up Football League Championship and FA Cup. They also became the first British Club to ever win a European Trophy in the 62/63 season. Bill Nic also went on to win one FA Cup in 67, as well as the League cup is 71 and 73 and a UEFA Cup in 72.

I will again be taking on the role of current Tottenham manager, André Villas-Boas.

AVB has often scrutinized during his early years in English football by the media, especially during his first year at the helm as Tottenham Manager. Stories often arose, claiming players were unsettled, with some British tabloids claiming that the players had started to 'revolt' against the Portuguese boss. Although these 'rumours' were later put to rest by several Tottenham players, it was always going to be a long and painful first year for him after taking over from media favourite Harry Redknapp.

His journey was made even more difficult after Tottenham amassed their highest ever point tally in the Premier League since it had begun, collecting a total of 72 league points; only to see Tottenham miss out on Champions League football for the successive year running by a single point.

At 35 years of age, AVB is currently one of the most successful young managers in the game. After leaving mentor José Mourinho, André looked at getting into management. His first 5 years has seen him manage at the British Virgin Island, as well as Portugese powerhouse Porto - where he went on to win 4 different trophies, including the Portuguese League and Europa League, as well as finish the season undefeated. Since then, he has also managed Chelsea and current side Tottenham Hotspur.
