When Spurs went 2-0 down in the first half of yesterday’s match with Southampton there were predictable cries for the coach to be sacked before the end of the season but Tim Sherwood lives to fight on. The comeback was inspired by Christian Eriksen and completed by Gylfi Sigurdsson and it leaves us with a little momentum ahead of a difficult trip to Anfield.

“I was gutted after 28 minutes and we conceded two poor goals, we know that,” said Sherwood on the club’s official website.

“We needed to dig deep and try to find a way to win the game and I’m so proud of the lads that we managed to achieve that.

“We knew it was going to be tough and to trail 2-0 at home and come back to win 3-2 is a massive achievement.”

The three points keeps us in with a faint chance of the top four but in reality, it just keeps us ahead of Everton and Manchester United in the race for fifth.

“It was a big win for us. We can now concentrate week to week on the Premier League and we’ll try to accumulate as many points as we can,” Tim added.

Next up is Liverpool on Sunday but after that, it is a relatively winnable run in to the end of the campaign. What can we hope to achieve?

  1. It was good to see us win!!! But no doubt about it that we are far from a finished product… eriksen and soldado combined well and played very well the second half. Soldado played a few wonderful passes and eriksen is the guy we need to build our team around now Tim!!!! Everytime i watch rose play he is useless!!! We need to nip him in the bud and put him on the compost heap!!!! I reckon tim nice but dim is in the stands in preperation for next year!! Where he will replace baldini as technical director and work alongside our chief scout for the club. Then we will bring in whoever our manager already is??? With relatibley money to spend new left back, a winger who can cross, young defender!! Swap dawson for caulker and a striker such as remy!!! We can wipe the smiles off all our critics faces this season callimg our spurs flops!!! We are still 5th and lamela and soldado will shiw their

    • Quality players!!! Unless we start our increased new stadium capacity we are always gonna be left behind in the league!! Come on levy lets get it built!!!

  2. Arsenal nailed us, as far as any chance of 4th was concerned, 8 days ago. They also nailed us in the prior two seasons by pipping us by a nose to the CL promised land. The difference this season (the one where we supposed to launch a title challenge with only one very young playmaker, who often never played anyway) is that our hopes have been ended with nearly two months to go ..thus denying us the nail biting expectation and grief on the final day of the season. One thing to remember deeply, therefore, in our next rebuilding (or consolidation into an actual team), is that we never allow Arsenal to tread all over our dreams again!
    So to yesterday. Great fun and excitement and some nice football at times, but it all had the feel of two decent mid table clubs fighting it out (think of the pre Jol era). At least we had something to cheer about, but we cannot seriously think that Arsenal will do for us what we did for them two seasons running (ie collapse, while we go off on some miraculous run). For the first time, I EXPECT a hammering next weekend, against Liverpool. And there we were, back in August, thinking the scousers weren’t even in the top 4 equation. Well, while we kept trying out different tactics that didn’t suit the players we had, and playing stodgy possession football with no cutting edge, Liverpool (you can’t keep a great club down) with their fine manager found their best team and their way very quickly. They kept THEIR best player and built around him ..and it just shows that if you DO have at least one great player in a side (two if you count Gerard) then it brings out the best in the other ‘good’ players around you. We, however, have NO great players anymore ..which is why so many players in our squad have not stepped up, and why we’ve never looked like a team that can score goals anymore. A great waste of the past 4 or 5 years BUT fresh hope can be rekindled for next season ..eg. another top playmaker, left winger (as Townsend doesn’t seem to like running that flank) and left back cover, and a manager who finds quickly what his best team and tactics are (and basically sticks with it), and we may finally create more great players achieving genuine success with THFC.

    • I disagree i believe eriksen, soldado and lamela will come good!!! Given time!!! They have quality and need a good run in the side!! We need a new left back not cover ?? Rose gives the ball away too often and cannot produce any crosses or passes!! Hes a dwarf rose so cant even head it neither??? Need to get rid, lennon, towns and capoue to go!!

  3. We need now what we have always needed a quick centre back a top class forward and a left back plus a new stadium.Next week at Liverpool will show exactly if TS is going to be the manager next season.There will be no hiding place at Anfield and if he gets his tactics wrong we will get mutilated
