It is a moment that says everything about Spurs under Villas-Boas and about the head coach himself. But it is also wholly consistent with the type of manager he is he was like this at Porto, and before that Academica and he tried to be like this when he was at Chelsea only to meet bitter resistance.Tottenham Hotspur coaches, Luis Martins and Jose Mario Rocha, prepare to join in.Derided, wrongly, as some kind of callow automaton, ridiculed as a geek, known as clueless and out-of-his-depth, a coach who has learnt by numbers and a slave to the laminated sheets of knowledge that he took with him to media briefings and Villas-Boas was misread.Tottenham have not done above Arsenal since the 1994-95 season & this game ought to go a long way to determining whether they can break that pattern. Andr Villas-Boas’s side currently have a four-point advantage over their rivals, they are also unbeaten in 11 games, & have Gareth Bale in the kind of form that made February’s player-of-the-month award a formality.
Arsenal, however, have won the last north London derbies 5-2 & have a habit of catching, then overhauling, Tottenham at this stage of the season.This fixture seems to do a weighty trade in goals and gravitas these days. And Sunday game already has the latter.But, in recent years, these neighbors are lifting the ceiling of importance. Games so memorable you only need the score to identify them the 5-2, the 4-4, the 3-2, the other 5-2, the 5-1.Arsenal are fifth with 47 points, Tottenham fourth with 51. Chelsea edged in to third by winning their weekend game on Saturday but stay eminently catch able.As in the 5-2 this time last year, a gap in the race for a Champions League spot (and indeed the championship of north London which Arsenal have held for 17 years) can be opened or closed at White Hart Lane.
