Last season rather petered out for Tottenham. Broadly speaking it wasn't bad, but with any chance of a top four finish long gone and fondly held hopes of avoiding Europa League qualification also dashed, some of us who attended the last home game against Hull struggled to stay awake...

Why Stoke City Are Now European Football Contenders

Since Mark Hughes was appointed boss in May 2013, he has gone great lengths to distance his team from the perceived hoof-ball of Tony Pulis. Nobody can deny the effectiveness of Pulis' Stoke, but it was damn ugly to watch and Hughes made his intention to play a clearly different style of football from the off.

Relegation Battle: Does Spending Big in January Guarantee Survival?

In the last five seasons, going back to 2008/09, five clubs have escaped relegation after being in the bottom three at the end of the transfer window. It would be very easy to assume that the sides which threw around the most money mid-season would be the ones to make the leap to safety, but that's not necessarily the case.

Andre Villas-Boas and Steve Clarke became the latest casualties of a ubiquitous perversion of Christmas cheer this weekend... But for both men, it is a case of 'goodbye but not farewell'. So clique-infested is the managerial merry-go-round that they will be back before you know it.

There's no doubt that the influx of players from the continent and beyond, some of whom have been mediocre at best, has had an impact on the development of British players. However, it's pleasing to see that when it comes to Premiership managers, there's a healthy proportion of British managers plying their trade and competing with the suave sophistication we associate with the likes of AVB, Laudrup, Di Matteo and their continental peers.

The Moyes Masterplan

Everton's win on Monday night came as no great surprise to me. No, I'm no better judge of the game than you, it was fairly obvious. David Moyes has added 2 or 3 players to a side that finished last season like a train. He does it every year, and is one of the reasons why Bill Kenwright gets more bang for his buck out of Moyes than any other Premier League chairman.
