There’s no doubt Brendan Rodgers will be under intense scrutiny and pressure when the new season starts. Taking over the managerial reigns at Liverpool and following in the footsteps of legend Kenny Dalglish will definitely be a tough task for the ex-Swansea coach.

However, if there is one man who easily wins the gold medal for “Manager Under the Most Pressure” it has to be Andre Villas Boas. Will we see the man who dazzled the football universe at Porto? Or will we see the AVB who failed miserably at Chelsea? As mentioned earlier this month on this site, I don’t believe lightning will strike twice for Villas Boas, who lived in the shadow of the Special One during his time at Stamford Bridge.

During Spurs tour of the U.S., the new Tottenham coach looked exceptionally relaxed and happy, and so did his team. I was lucky enough to spend some time with him. Enjoy A Conversation With Andre Villas Boas.

    THIS GUY IS SOOOOOOOOOO ARROGANT IT’S UNBELIEVABLE!!! I’m surprised you were able to make him laugh just a little bit. HE WILL FAIL again! Managing PORTO is one thing but being a EPL manager is an entirely different job and one he can’t do. YEAH those idiot players at Chelsea got him sacked eventually but he didn’t do himself any favors by treating some of them the way he did. AND the sooner SPURS realize they are not Arsenal the better. HA HA! I thought my MILAN were in trouble this season.

    Harsh words from the Italian.

    I think he’ll do better as Spurs as it is an easier club to step into. Think of all the drama and baggage at Chelski. Plus he was seen as Mourinho’s water boy for so long so having him back as the man in charge SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO did not help him.

    The summer transfer window is like waiting for Christmas. You have an entire list of things you want, you hope you get them all and in the end, even if just a few things on your list make it under the tree, you're fine with that!

    I fancy Arsenal to win the Community Shield against Chelsea in a few weeks. #factsonly
