As the new season develops we continue to question the wisdom of Daniel Levy. It would be ridiculously unfair to write new Tottenham boss AVB off at this stage. He has only had a few games (albeit pretty easy ones on paper) to implement his style. He has also had to deal with the departures of two of last year’s best performers in Luka Modric and Rafa van der Vaart.
But many of us felt Daniel Levy saw something that we didn’t when he took on AVB. Our instincts told us that this was a bad move. It couldn’t have gone much worse for the man at Chelsea but he almost immediately got the chance to manage again at the top of The Premier League – in place of the mercurial Harry Redknapp. I have little time for people who think Harry did a bad job at Spurs. He raised the bar, brought in brilliant players and made Tottenham genuinely competitive again. Alas, something went on behind the scenes and Harry got the boot. But, when AVB was announced as his successor, many of us were thoroughly mystified.
When the Portuguese came to the club soccersweep couldn’t understand it and wrote accordingly. A month or so in and we have no reason to believe that Levy did the right thing sacking Harry and bringing in AVB. We genuinely wish the lad the best. Maybe the superb Moussa Dembele can make Spurs successful this year. But we just retain a niggling feeling that this ain’t gonna end well for Levy, AVB or Totters.
