Jermain Defoe - Has he progressed under AVB? | Stats Analysis

Jermain Defoe has silenced his critics since the start of the season, with the striker firing nine goals into the net, keeping him near the top of the Golden Boot leader-board. But despite playing regular football under Andre Villas-Boas, has the Englishman actually improved his form under the Portuguese manager?

Scott Parker or Sandro? A statistical comparison

Not since Harry Redknapp signed Wilson Palacios in January of 2009 have Spurs had a tough tackling midfielder to compliment the creativity and flair in their midfield ranks. That was the case until Redknapp persuaded Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to part with £5 million for West Ham United and England’s Scott Parker.
