Tim Sherwood’s CV wouldn’t have been enhanced by last night’s defeat at West Ham and our former midfielder seems unsure if he will even be in charge when the side travel to St Marys on Sunday. Sherwood remains the favourite for the job but the single substitution of Emmanuel Adebayor could scupper any hopes of him taking the hot seat on a full time basis.
“I don’t know if I’ll be Spurs manager – I haven’t spoken to the chairman,” Tim said.
The 44 year old wasn’t ruling himself out of a tilt at the job however.
“We have to have a chat and see. It has to fit me and the club. The club have to make the right appointment – as you can imagine the list is as long as your arm.
“There are a lot of big names in the frame. It depends who the chairman thinks is the right one.”
“It is new for me. I have enjoyed it. It is a new voice for the players. I am trying to get the best out of them. It is difficult to get the message across of how I want to play in a few days.
“On Monday I was going to take the development team training at 10:20am, I then had to change my plans to take the first team.”
Further names have been mentioned this morning and Ajax’s Frank de Boer has now shortened to 7/1 but can the club move quickly enough to get anyone in before the New Year?
