Next Match: at home to Man Utd, December 01
Europe: UEFA Europa League (Group K)
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas insists he is too thick-skinned to worry about any criticism of his regime. Spurs landed deep inside the Arctic Circle on Wednesday morning amid reports that Villas-Boas' days as Spurs boss could be numbered. Tottenham's board indicated on Monday they were unhappy with Sunday's 6-0 defeat at Manchester City, but the Portuguese came out fighting in Tromso, bristling at suggestions that he was a dead man walking. Alan Shearer, Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville did not hold back on their criticism of Tottenham following their humiliating loss in Manchester, but the 36-year-old Spurs boss could not care less. "I am immune (to criticism) right now," he said. "I used to read a lot into situations like this, into pressure points when I was at Chelsea, but not anymore. I am very indifferent. There is only one (area) that I come under pressure from, which is the press."
