Andre Villas-Boas – ‘A Massive Coup For Newcastle United’

8 years ago

I’d never really properly listened to Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas before but I caught his pre-match press conference and he had some interesting stuff to say on Newcastle United.

I think it is fair to say he knows his stuff and while name-checking Yohan Cabaye as vital to Newcastle, maybe more surprising that he recognises the real worth of Steven Taylor to the team.

However, it really lifts the spirits when you hear what he has to say about Moussa Sissoko, though to be fair it is no more than we have seen with our own eyes so far.


“Steven Taylor and Cabaye, these are players that have an immediate impact on the team, they can make the difference – with the transfer additions they have found their ground.

With the two wins it takes the pressure off the relegation battle they were in, so I think they arrive here as a new team.

I’m unsure what they can do this season but I can predict Newcastle to jump back and continue to climb.

I think Sissoko was a great grab, he was a player who only a couple of years ago was being linked with the top clubs in the world.

To get him at such a price is a massive coup for them”.
