When we last looked at the sack race betting in the wake of the Norwich defeat, Tim Sherwood was an outside bet at 16/1 to be the next Premiership manager to lose his job. Three games later and that figure has shortened considerably.
It’s hard to know what to feel after the most recent matches. Prior to the Norwich defeat Tottenham had demolished an admittedly poor Newcastle side and while Emmanuel Adebayor’s goals had carried the team to some extent, fourth place was still a possibility.
Four games later and many of us can’t wait for this season to be over. With the FA Cup final set to provide one Europa League slot, qualification for that competition is now looking doubtful – assuming we even want it.
As for Sherwood, his honesty is admirable and he could do grow to be a decent manager somewhere but at present, is he just a coach out of his depth or is he being seriously let down by his players?
Currently, Tim is at a best of 8/1 with Stan James to be the next to leave and if you do enjoy a punt, that could be worth considering.
