    UPDATE: Wednesday, December 18

    Zapsportz, a website Glenn Hoddle co-founded, has confirmed that he is willing to return to Tottenham Hotspur in a managerial capacity.

    Monday, December 16

    Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker believes fellow Spurs great Glenn Hoddle should be the club's next permanent manager.

    Lineker tweeted: "AVB has been sacked by Spurs. Would love to see Glenn Hoddle given another chance at this level. Has a brilliant football mind."

    A 5-0 defeat to Liverpool at home plus a 6-0 defeat to Manchester City in the past month must have heavily factored in Levy's thinking to fire Andre Villas-Boas.  

    Jason Burt at The Telegraph wrote: "He [Villas-Boas] and Levy have never been, according to a source close to the Portuguese, a 'dynamic duo'. By the end the relationship between the pair was ever more remote; it was not a meeting of minds."

    Chelsea fired Villas-Boas and won the UEFA Champions League, which was the ultimate indictment on how awful he was for the Blues' dressing room.

    Villas-Boas may have lost the confidence of the Spurs dressing room.

    Tottenham tweeted: "We can announce that Tim Sherwood, Chris Ramsey and Les Ferdinand will take charge of the First Team whilst the Club progresses discussions."


Kyle Walker to Monaco?

    Monaco might submit a bid for Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kyle Walker, according to Charles Reynolds at The Independent.

    Walker extended his contract in October, so clearly he is happy to stay at the club.

    Even if he did not sign a contract extension, Monaco don't need a right-back in the January transfer window with Andrea Raggi and Fabinho.

    Should Monaco fail to extend Fabinho's loan into a permanent deal in the summer transfer window, could Walker be an option?

    Perhaps but someone like Bacary Sagna, who is running down his contract at Arsenal, is a more logical transfer target.
