'If It's Football, It's Vital'

AVB explains Damiao Failure.

Andre Villas-Boas has tried to appease those fans dismayed at the clubs failure to sign a striker, after claiming the price of Damiao didn't meet they valuation and spiralled out of proportion

Though this perhaps doesn't explain why there wasn't a Plan B option, it does perhaps give an indication that Spurs will as usual be looking to keep the purse strings tight and only spend what they see as their valuation and not be drawn into an auction by greedy clubs and agents. I will leave you to debate whether that is a good or bad thing and whether clubs sometimes have to bite the bullet, should a signing be seen as essential.

Speaking of the move, Andre Villas-Boas said 'We`ve approached this market very, very sensibly, If (the price) was going to go out of proportion we would step out of it. We couldn`t agree on the full conditions so we move on.'

AVB also hinted that Spurs will not try to sign the Brazilian in the summer and yet again suffer an ever changing valuation, as he continued; 'Will we sign him in the summer? I don`t think so. It`s probably finished by now.' Based on that, I assume we have other targets, and it will be interesting to see who they are in the summer, and I wonder if they were all out of the question in the last month...
