Andre Villas-Boas: Has urged Spurs to start 2013 as they finished 2012

Spurs can cap a near-perfect Christmas period with a New Year's Day victory at White Hart Lane after ending 2012 with seven Premier League points from nine.

The only blip was a goalless home draw with Stoke and Villas-Boas warned against complacency against another side his men will be tipped to beat on their own patch.

"The problem with that fixture is that we have done extremely well away from home, but we have to keep up the momentum," Villas-Boas said.

"We have to keep our home form going and it would be silly for us not to continue at this level, so it is a fixture in which we really want to get the three points to close finally the festive fixtures with three wins, hopefully, and one draw.

"(The players) have been excellent. The December that we had shows exactly that.

"We had big, big results against difficult teams and the Europa League in between.

"If we manage to take this form into January, it would be excellent."

Rodgers: No defence coach

T

hat's it for me, that's ego talking and nothing more. Three seasons in and he still hasn't resolved the issues in defence. This won't end well, he doesn't have the skills needed to sort out the back four and isn't prepared to bring in those who do. This is the worst team I've seen since the late days of Houllier. Brendan...you're fired.
