Spurs 0 Aston Villa 1 – dispiriting loss as Sherwood gets some revenge

Sherwood Pochettino

 

This was not how it as supposed to be. Tim Sherwood returned to White Hart Lane and left with three valuable points in Villa’s bid for Premier League survival, while Mauricio Pochettino was left regretting another missed opportunity.

In his brief but turbulent reign at Tottenham, Sherwood alienated players and fans. His teams often seemed a collection of individuals without an identity. Despite his obvious flaws – and there were many – he did manage to Continue reading

He’s finally gone – Spurs say their goodbyes to Tim Sherwood

Sherwood in his Gilet

 

This week finally, inevitably, the axe fell on Tim Sherwood. Strangely, when he was eventually sacked I felt a pang of sadness for him. He probably wasn’t treated that well by Daniel Levy but then which manager has been?

They say a manager makes a team is his own image. This was never truer than in the case of Mark Hughes and Stoke. Objectively he has done a fantastic job. Taking over from a popular, successful, long serving coach is never easy – just ask David Moyes. The Welshman has kept the aerial power and physicality that made Pulis’ team so tough to play against, but has added some nice football through the likes of Odemwingie and Arnautovic.

Like Hughes in his prime, Stoke marry quality with toughness, but this outer makeover hides Continue reading

Spurs Manager Choices

 

It looks like Tim Sherwood will be replaced in the summer as Daniel Levy looks to find the manager to take Spurs into the top four and challenge for trophies, but which manager should he choose and would they come to Tottenham?

Criteria

In my opinion, the main criteria that Levy should use to judge potential candidates are: Continue reading
