Almost as soon as Tim Sherwood took the hot seat at Spurs, many assumed he would be out of the job by the end of this season. With a relatively short, 18 month contract, and several top names potentially becoming available after the World Cup, the gossip has been incessant.
That gossip has only increased since Michael Laudrup left Swansea yesterday. The Welsh club have hit the panic button as they hover just two points above the relegation zone, although one win in ten league games marks an alarming slide.
As for Tim Sherwood, he is fourth favourite in the sack race with only Chris Hughton, Rene Meulensteen and Sam Allardyce in front of him. The knives are out but is Michael Laudrup’s managerial record anything to get particularly excited about?
