Former Spurs and Chelsea boss odds tumble

FboasPreview Changesormer Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has been a surprise addition to the bookies list of possible candidates to became the next West Ham manager this evening.

Sky Bet has priced Villas-Boas at 12/1 despite never being mentioned in the race for the West Ham hot seat before.  It is not known what inside information the guys at Sky know but it could be a sizeable wager has been laid down on the 37 year old Portuguese manager becoming the 15th West Ham manager.

Villas-Boas spent eight months as manager of  Academica, one year as manager of Porto, nine months as manager of Chelsea and a year-and-a-half as manager of  Spurs. He led Porto to an undefeated 2010-2011 season in the Primera Liga, winning four trophies and becoming the youngest manager ever to win a European title in the process.

In March 2014, he signed a two-year deal with Zenit Saint Petersburg. He led the club to the fifth league title this season.

  1. Not over impressed with the rumour there’s a few I’d rather but given the choice AVB or BFS it’d be AVB every time

  2. Doesn’t seem to stay at clubs for long, does he ?

  3. Well he aint left Zemit has he.Hope not,i would prefer he stays there than gets involved in our manager hunt.

  4. AVB is a manager who has been highly criticised for being tactically clueless, ring any bells?

  5. Spuds left overs no thank you,but if it’s him or BFS he can have the job
    But if it’s spoonie or BFS welcome on board Spoonie
    I know BFS what ever army

  6. Tactically clueless but a season undefeated and four trophies?!
    Would need time and the right technical gifted players who understand and can play a system. On that basis not hopeful and doubt board would take the risk

  7. He had a good reputation before the spuds but we’ve been down the road of an ex-Chelsea manager before with creepy uncle Avram and that would surely be on the Daves mind so I think it’ll be a no for AVB

  8. No thanks, but looking at the photo he shore wears his suit better than the fat man
