Yes, I'm back with another story, and for that I apologise. I've realised the problem with my stories and I now know what I won't add to this story. Anyway, this is my Spurs story, which was requested by a few people, and supported by a few others. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride :)

Villas-Boas fills United vacancy
Spurs man no more: Andre Villas-Boas leaves Tottenham to fill the vacant Manchester United role.
Tottenham fans across the globe have been left devastated as manager Andre Villas-Boas has today been revealed as the successor of Sir Alex Ferguson, the legendary Manchester United manager who retired from management at the end of the 2012-13 season. Many managers were linked with the role, including recently released Everton manager David Moyes and now-Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola.

Andre Villas-Boas released this statement to Sky Sports News...
"While Tottenham are a great club, one that I was honoured to have been manager at, an offer from Manchester United is one I cannot refuse, no matter what. I'm optimistic ahead of my time at Manchester United, given the slight success I had at Tottenham. Man United are a very successful club, arguably the best in England, so I hope I can bring the board and the fans all the success they deserve. I'd like to thank Daniel Levy, the Spurs chairman, for being understanding of my decision, and the Glazer's for even considering me for this treasured position within the club."

Fans of the North London club have spoken out about how Villas-Boas has "betrayed" the club and the board, as many were confident Andre Villas-Boas was the one to lead the club to the long-awaited success they deserve. The 35 year-old brought in 7 players in the transfer window - Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Vlad Chiriches, Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Nacer Chadli and Etienne Capoue, and the new manager will without a doubt make a few more in the few weeks they have left of the summer window.

Managers linked with the vacant Tottenham job are David Moyes, Gus Poyet, Ledley King, Gary Lineker and Teddy Sheringham. However, the favourite remains to be Laurent Blanc, despite being happy at Paris Saint-Germain.
Oh no... Why Alex....Why??? :P If you don't finish in the top 4 I will laugh so hard :D
Good luck Alex. The coding is messed up but good start. AVB will be interesting at Man Utd.

Edit: You fixed it as soon as I posted this.
Good start Alex :)
Nice start mate:) should be an interesting one

Abdelhamid appointed as Spurs manager
An Egyptian prince: Ahmed Hossam Hussein Abdelhamid returns to Tottenham, but who exactly is he?
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has shocked football fans worldwide by appointing former player Ahmed Hossam Hussein Abdelhamid, also known as Mido, as the new manager. Tottenham fans are furious with Mido's arrival at the club, but North London rivals Arsenal and Top 4 rivals Liverpool are said to be "ecstatic".

New signing at the club Etienne Capoue, however, has praised Mido, saying this...
"I believe that fans and players at Tottenham should give our new manager a chance. Even if some fans struggle to accept it, I hope every person involved with the club can at least attempt to get along with the idea. I for one will welcome Mido to the club with open arms, and I'm sure other players will too. I've joined the club hoping a community, some playing time and some success. I strongly believe Mido can bring us success, and even if he can't, I'm sure [Daniel] Levy will do the right thing in the end."

Just a few hours later, Mido spoke about Capoue's words, as well as his reaction to being manager...
"It is a dream come true to be at Spurs, I'm over the moon. Although most fans are angry, disappointed and bitter towards me, I promise you all that I am the one to bring success to Spurs, success that the club has deserved over the past few years. Success that I will give to you as soon as possible. Despite me being at many clubs in my footballing career, Tottenham have always stayed in my heart, and will never leave my heart after this beautiful opportunity. Thank you to Daniel Levy for giving me the chance, and thank you to Etienne Capoue, who has welcomed me with open arms publicly, as well as many other players, most of whom I played with in my time at Spurs. The last people to thank are the fans. Despite having your doubts now, I believe I can give you the success, trophies, all that Arsenal lack. Thank you."

Mido was almost reduced to tears by the end of this statement. In the Egyptian's career, he played for many clubs, beginning in 1999 with home club Zamalek, where he only played for 1 year, before heading off to Belgian outfit Gent. However, life at Gent only lasted 1 season, before going to Holland to play for Ajax. He played there from 2001-2003, before moving country again - this time on loan to Celta Vigo in Spain for the remainder of the 2002-03 season, before leaving permanently to France's Marseille.
But, in true Mido fashion, he moved away again after 1 season to Italian side Roma, where he stayed for 2 years, before another loan deal to Tottenham Hotspur, leading to a permanent deal after impressing for the London team. But the fun didn't last, as he left for fellow English team Middlesbrough, where he had a staggering 4 loan deals in a 2007-2010 period - to Wigan Athletic, a return to Zamalek, a move back to England with West Ham, then another return, this time to Ajax. In 2011, Mido returned to Zamalek for a third time, but left after a season to finish his career at Barnsley.
Ohhhhhh, Mido :P
Nice start, but interesting choice of manager :/
:-X Mido :-X
Mido :) Another great start!
Good luck! Great start with Mido!:D
Great Start to my beloved United

Bébé signs for Spurs
Just a Bébé... Spurs fans have been angered by the signing of Bébé from Manchester United.
Tottenham Hotspur supporters across the planet have been enraged today, as manager Mido revealed the signing of winger Bébé from Manchester United on a free transfer. Bébé is said to be "delighted" with the move, as is Mido, who branded the 23 year-old as a "breath of fresh air" into the club. Players in the team are also supportive of the move, as is chairman Daniel Levy.

New signing Christian Eriksen was the first to welcome Bébé to the club, saying...
"I for one would like to welcome Bébé to the club. Despite not being the smartest move Mido could've made in the situation where the fans are disappointed with his appointment, but I believe he can make a positive contribution in the new era the club is about to enter. One with silverware, success and happiness. One with depth, where every position has a decent back-up. Bébé will most likely be part of the back-up for the Nacer [Chadli] and maybe even Mousa's [Dembele] position, as well as Aaron [Lennon] and new signing Erik's [Lamela] position. I wish the best of luck to Bébé at the club, and the future ahead of him"

Mido too made a statement a few hours later, saying...
"We are delighted to have Bébé on board with us from Manchester United on a free transfer. While he isn't the best player we could sign, it is a coup to have him in our squad on such low wages - £13,250 a week. He won't always be a first team player, but he'll definitely be playing in the Capital One Cup, the FA Cup and the Europa League, maybe around 10 Premier League games a season. I look forward to seeing him play as a back-up and a first team player in our team"

Bébé's career began with Portugal Second Division side Estrela, where he stayed for a season before moving up a division to Vitória de Guimarães, but was only there for 5 weeks, as he then went to Manchester United on a permanent deal - but flopped. He went on three loan deals, but never played for the third. The first loan was a disappointing season with Besiktas, while he had a slightly better half a season with Rio Ave the next year. Finally, he went off to Paços de Ferreira but failed to play a game, before heading to Tottenham Hotspur.
