Andre Villas-Boas and Tottenham Hotspur parted ways on Monday, but the former head coach was still in charge on the club's matchday programme as they took on West Ham United in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.

Spurs went on to lose the game 2-1 and with it saw their hopes in the competition evaporate at the quarter-final stage.

Can interim manager Tim Sherwood blame his Portuguese predecessor for this loss? After all, it's right there in the programme...
