Ledley King: Impressed with Andre Villas-Boas and current Spurs squad

The former Spurs and England defender was forced to retire at the end of last season after losing his battle with long-standing knee injuries, and he has now been appointed as a club ambassador.

Spurs lifted only the League Cup during King's time with the club, but he believes their current squad can contend for major honours under the guidance of Andre Villas-Boas.

"I rate the current Spurs team very highly," King said. "I think we've got a young and ambitious manager who's great and is going to do well for the club.

"I think we've got a great group of players at a good age where they're improving all the time and reaching their peak.

"The way the team are progressing at the minute, hopefully in the next year or two they will be really challenging for the Premier League.

"Hopefully this season we will finish in the Champions League places and then keep doing that. It's a big club and you've got to make sure it's not just a one-off, you've got to keep doing it.

"Hopefully we can qualify this season and continue doing that for the future."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
