View Full Version : Andre Villas-Boas

OK, we all know, villas-boas was interista for a while, he was Mourinho's assistant during 2008-09 season. His days at Chelsea could be numbered; he is not using 50 million worth Fernando Torres, he is out of the title race in England and he has confirmed that to the press yesterday after chelsea draw with fulham.

The reality is:
- Claudio Ranieri is probably good enough only for the first season, he is known as a good fireworker, second season is often disastrous. Maybe we should go for Andre at the end of the season, if Abramovič does decide to sack him. That could well happen in march if Napoli kicks them out of the CL

What do you think? Would be Villas-Boas the right man for inter? :notbad:

I like AVB a lot, and would welcome him here, but there's no way Abramović will let him go. Abramović himself knows very well that this Chelsea team has run it's course. I'm sure, that Chelsea will spend big in January and summer, and then AVB can be judged.

AVB is a bit overrated, he was good for Porto because he had one of the best squads in Porto's history, had a really strong structure behind him, and also, in the first matches he had the refs giving him a push forward if you know what I mean, thanks to Pinto da Costa, who is not in jail because... well I don't even know how he is not in jail.
Of course he is a good coach, but he is not a "mini-Mourinho".
I think you guys should hire Frank Rijkaard (who was linked to Sporting in march, because of the elections).
He built a really strong team at Barcemerda, and that's what you need, you need to renew your squad.

Never thought he was for Inter...Chelsea is a club very similar to Inter and he has the same struggle as Inter had with Rafa/Leo/Gasperini.We are a defensive club...

Unless we plan to completely revamp our team.Set up a new base...Then I would agree.But if he was to play a team based on Samuel,Cambiasso,Zanetti,Motta and other slow players he would fail miserably.

He is a pretty good coach, knowing how old he is.. but that 15m was ridiculous tbh, I dont know why the fuck was I pissed that we didnt get him, of course he could do better than Gasp but spending money on players is more important.

He is a good coach and I want him sacked from Chelsea. He has the ability to build a team at Chelsea and I think he has got full backing from Roman (Which is a rare sight).

He has a philosophy but dont have the players to implement it. Playing highline with Terry was a disaster. Fair play to him, he changed that for few games.

I think he will get extended time. He needs dynamic players and probably he will sign the players that will fit to his philosophy.

according to gazzeta dello sport, Villas-Boas is the first choice of moratti for the summer. Guidolin, Mazzari and Laurent Blanc are also being considered...The link:

PS Mou is in London, searching for a house, he could return to chelsea english media belive...

IMO Villas-Boas is a great coach, but he would have the same problem with inter seniors, the same as he has with chelsea seniors....AVB would coach 5 years older zanetti...

I like him a lot. He has done amazing job in France, and also on club level with Bordeaux. With average team he brought them to second place in the first season, and won the french league in his second.

He is also young, trusts younger player, and tactically he is very good. He knows when and what to change. I like that.

My opinion on Blanc is that he is good at many things, but not great. Not yet anyway.

He's been quite impressive recently, including that victory over Germany.

Ahh come on. Bordeaux finished second 2 years before he got there and were in second place with 3 games remaining the season before he was hired. They were already a strong team. Plus, after winning the league he brought them right back down to 6th place. he only won 2 of his final 10 matches with Bordeaux, losing 6 of them.

In Euro qualifying, he had an extremely easy group and barely made it out of there. A Nasri penalty kick was the only reason why the finished on top of Bosnia. He is not a bad manager, but I wouldn't say he is very good, not yet at least. Mazzarri has been more impressive than him IMO...

AVB would be interesting, but not a guaranteed success.

There are two aspects to look at:

1 - Support from Moratti. In my humble opinion, AVB is about the only damn manager we can reasonably get, who Moratti would give time, and support, to. This alone means something positive for Inter - stability and continuity.

2 - AVB himself. Inter have an older squad than Chelsea, HOWEVER, I dont think we have the same issues. In Stankovic you have someone a bit comparable to Lampard, but for example, Zanetti will never cause the problems Terry did. Lucio & Samuel are a little bit moody sometimes, but once again, not on the same level. There wont be pressure to play a 50 million pound misfiring striker, because lets be honest, we dont have one.

I think both of these factors combined mean that we should at the least TRY AVB. One season, no matter what the results are, and a decent financial backing (but more importantly, the moral support of the management - if he wants to turf an old senior player, back him).



edit;

As I posted elsewhere, I think this is actually pretty dangerous without too much expenditure:

Viviano

newRB Samuel Caldirola Nagatomo (depends on the coach, need someone defensively astute)

Poli Guarin?

Alvarez Coutinho Lucas

Pazzini

Correct, I was just talking about the season before. Look at it this way...Mancini took over a team with 7 wins in their first 17 matches, less than 50% of their matches. Chelsea were much stronger...if they would have beaten Man U at the end of these season, they would have been level on points with 2 matches left. AVB has won less than half of his league games...you don't pay 15 million to go backwards.

Yeah it was pointless to compare AVB and Mancini as it was completely different circumstances.

It is unfair on Mancini as he was appointed in the midseason and he had no time to access his squad and had to produce from the word go.

It is unfair on AVB as he got old squad and fucking shit one. He didn't get unlimited funds like Mancini to buy whatever player he wanted.

Makes no sence. Inter will not play in europe, also you remember how fast leo ran away when he got a sniff of what your management was upto? There is no way Pep is comming to Inter. Even if he does (in a strange world which does not exist) he will fail with this old squad.


Its not just the coach that you need to change,your whole team needs to be chopped and fall like a giant old tree.

Pep would definitely have more backing than Leo and more power or say in general.......


Also Pep is definitely looking for a new challenge so the fact that we don't have CL will just make it a legit challenge. I'm not worried about that, but I am worried about richer clubs that will make a more active push aka Chelsea.

Like you said, the only way pep is comming to inter is if no other top team has a vacancy, that too IF he decides to leave barca.

Technically speaking i dont think pep would be a good choice for inter. Italy is a way way different leauge than Spain and Pep would struggle with any team, not just inter.

AVB, Blanc, Zeman by reports only. Otherwise there are Mazzari, Capello, Dunga, Klinsmann as well.

You simply cannot conclude about Pep as he hasn't coached anywhere else where he wouldn't benefit from "Barca's Philosophy for eg." There is a risk in Pep too, even more so in AVB.

Look at the players that pep has at his disposal, not to mention the most important part that is management that backs him. Teams like Udinese or Lazio are the ones that will be ideal for pep to coach.

AVB has proved himself with porto but he will miserably fail at inter. Reason being at inter he will have the same resources he had at inter, superstar but washed up old team and we just saw how AVB cannot cope with that.

I would love to see chapello at inter, your best option. He will drag you right back in the top 4.

I think Europa League is being highly underrated among people here. Actually not being able to secure a spot for Champions League's next season might be a kind of positive thing because we would be forced to dumb the dead wood of the team, I mean those players who are unnecessary.

We're on a situation where we have to suffer in order to hit the success after some years, but let's hope next summer will be a great mercato for us with quality work. It isn't a big deal if we won't play Champions League next season as long as we do great work in mercato.

Its gonna be really hard to control a dressing room that has players as old or older than you.


Anyways Pep is a spectacular coach.....even with all his current players he still had to make it happen and motivate them and fit them all into the squad.


I really think people are underestimating his coaching ability.

FROM RANIERI TO VILLAS BOAS

Moratti is disappointed. Will not change now but want Inter to the Portuguese.
The coach resists as he is waiting for Chievo and Marseille.
The former Chelsea coach, meanwhile, receives... a SMS.

Milan - For those who had just paid attention to this situation well, it is as follows: Claudio Ranieri remains where he is, pending the trip to Chievo and especially the return game against Deschamps in Italy. And Andre Villas Boas remains where he is, not at Chelsea but with thousands of rumors and a few text messages... that link him to Inter for the coming year.

Moratti The Inter president returned last night from the United Arab Emirates (business related to Saras), and he was not happened due to yet another game where Inter did not win, a game which war partially revived the pride in the team but more and more annoyed by the current place in the standings. That said, Moratti should again remain firm on his position: Ranieri is safe for now even if Stramaccioni remains in a pre-alarming situation. As for Andre Villas Boas, he's been available since Sunday afternoon.

Choices and observations Now we will see how Ranieri will do with the choices made starting from the 16th minute in the second half against Catania: the midfield is filled with youngsters who actually run. The next game against Chievo is just three days away: three days for Ranieri to study, for those who observed yesterday in Ausilio at Pinetina and for those who will decide, Moratti. In the meantime, they can only think about tomorrow because in July, there will be a revolution in many areas.

Sms to Villas Boas Thinking about tomorrow also means thinking about Andre Villas Boas. AVB was at Inter for 15 months: from tactical manager to observer of Mourinho. Then he moved on with his life to Academia, then to Porto and then Chelsea. The British tabloids insist that Chelsea senators ousted him. At Inter, he would find the senators those that he already knows. The relationships with the current Inter players? They seem to be good but then only those who involved know. Yesterday and before the game, there were many text messages sent from this side to the mobile phone of the Portuguese. The theme and tone? To comfort the sacking that he was suffering.

The list: AVB first Massimo Moratti certainly has in his secret drawer a list of future coaches. Of course, Villas Boas is in pole position. Recall that Inter tried to get him last summer but backed away after knowing the 15 million release clause. Pep Guardiola remains the ream but do not underestimate the hypothesis of Laurent Blanc.

Part from an article on AVB


The owner’s hands-on approach has been evident again recently. Villas-Boas was left shaken when Abramovich turned up to watch training the day before the 3-3 draw with Manchester United in the Premier League on February 5. The owner even asked for the tactics before the match and then spent six of the next seven days at the training ground observing Villas-Boas at work. The writing was on the wall.

By then he was already showing signs that he couldn’t handle a job he described on Friday as one of the toughest in world football.

When one of the players remarked that he looked ‘knackered’ after they had lost 5-3 to Arsenal in October, he responded by revealing that he had slept at the training ground — even though his family live moments away from Stamford Bridge in Chelsea Harbour.

He appeared so obsessed with pleasing Abramovich and carrying out his demands that he became a workaholic, spending 12-hour days at the training ground. His black BMW 4x4 was a fixture in the car park, first to arrive and last to leave as he fretted about the future

12 hours in a training ground? Real workaholic, Shame he couldn't implement his ideas on players who had 0 tactical awareness. Typical one dimensional players who can't play any other way.

Boas' way of coaching is nothing like Mourinho's, at least when it comes to the actual formations and playstyle. He likes fast paced attacking football, not defensive minded like Mourinho. Like everyone has already said, he'll end up the exact same situation as in Chelsea... but this time he'll coach an even slower and older team.

Mourinho is not defensive minded imo.

Mourinho knew when to attack and when to defend. He is allrounder :D

I agree though, AVB and Mou are nothing alike. Not in terms of quality, not in terms of style.(tactics wise)

the el is a waste of time. the money you get from it is pathetic. i would rather not be in it next year and concentrate on the league. it worked for juve

Yeah, some time i thought like this.

BUT

you can get those fucking coefficcient-point for EL as well, so you won't decrease in the club ranking while leaving a complete season out....

It's not the same you are in the first pot of the CL draw or maybe in the 3rd pot. The easiest you quialify from the group, the more money you get.

So the EL has value.

1 Inter legend.

I loved Sinisha, but I won't go as far as calling him an Inter legend. A red star legend maybe.

Roma should be pretty happy with Luis Enrique's work so far, they don't need a new coach.

There are rumours saying that IF Guardiola leaves Barcelona for Inter/Chelsea/?, Luis Enrique could become Barcelona's coach. Rumours will be there all around and the pre-summer rumour party has already started.

We can get AVB to replace Stramaccioni, looks like he is finally good enough for us. He passed his test last night.

Approved.

He ain't coming to Inter anytime soon I can tell you that. This is Spurs time, if they can keep Bale they will challenge for major trophies next season. Why would he come to Inter who's in the middle of a rebuilding process and generally in disarray?

i was talking about sinisa as a coach ( since he was mancini's assistant, as AVB was Mou's ) ... so you are wrong about AVB, he was not inter coach but mou's assistant
