One thought on “Villas Boas – a scouting report from back when he did that sort of thing

  1. Wow, reading that really puts the job of scouts into perspective. There’s so much there that I’d never pick up on.

    Interestingly though, Villas Boas seems to give Newcastle a bit too much credit. He anticipated a strong attacking line-up of 442, but they faced a 451 with Ameobi up front (450 really). Tells a lot about both sides. Chelsea clearly saw Newcastle as a side that could cause trouble. Newcastle saw Chelsea as a side they might get a lucky draw against.

    Anyway, it didn’t matter much in the end, 3-0 to Chelsea.
