AVB NEEDS BALE-SAFE DEVICE.

Byline: Dave Kidd

ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS is flavour of the month in north London and so chairman Daniel Levy is being blamed for Tottenham's failure to reach the top four after his refusal to sign another striker in January.

However, Levy might suggest that AVB already had the tools at his disposal. Emmanuel Adebayor, Clint Dempsey and Gylfi Sigurdsson p y y g scored 41 Premier League goals between them in 2011-12 - Sigurdsson in only four months at Swansea - yet each player managed fewer than half as many under AVB this season, for a sum total of 15.

An over-dependence on Gareth Bale's goals may prove very costly should Real Madrid come calling.
