Tim Sherwood commented on yet another bad start for his Tottenham side but the team consistently fail to address the problem. In recent weeks, we have gone behind to Southampton and Sunderland but this time, a 3-0 deficit after half an hour was too much to recover from.

Christian Eriksen did snatch an injury time equaliser but it was clearly two points dropped. After the game, Sherwood felt that Spurs could have gone on to claim the win.

“It was thoroughly deserved, in my opinion,” said the Head Coach.

“We made a very poor start, gifted them three goals, but at 3-0 down I still thought we could go on to win the game.

“We were opening them up and I knew those chances would continue to come.

“At half-time we said ‘stay relaxed, your chances will come’.

Half time also saw the withdrawal of Vlad Chiriches who, to use a technical footballing term, had an absolute ‘mare. The second period saw us dominate but by then it was far too late.

“There was belief in there, no panic. Harry scored a great goal and then a fantastic finish from Christian at the end<” Sherwood added.

“Even then, we wanted to win it. There were two minutes to go and we had opportunities to get in behind again.

“In the end, we had 20 shots at goal and we’re gutted to come away without the three points.”

Manchester United can now claim sixth spot by winning their game in hand while next up for Spurs is a home tie with Fulham in Saturday’s early kick off.

  1. Hes lucky hes the manager!!! If we play that bad in the first half we dont deserve to win the game!!!! Rose was awful again!!! Lennon was poor and both shouldnof been replaced by fryers and townsend.. ade has lost his mojo again and if ciriches had defensive midfield cover such as sandro then it would of been a very different game indeed. Coys

    • Along with lennon and siggy, keep soldado please hes a good player given time and someone to play the ball to his feet unlike lennon, rose?

  2. I agree with gav we can all see what players are useless but sherwood the imbocile just can’t see it .
    We need to buy michu,a young, caulker, lakaku if Chelsea sell to us and bring back ekotto.
    Sell siggy,rose,lennon,Livermore,Dawson,naughton,
    We could go for a young,Hernandez,contreao ,michu all at bargain prices I reckon.
    We might get 1 million for lennon that’s a deal.

    • If we get 1mill for lennon thats all we paid for him anyway! I reckon more like 3-4mill for him from someone like leicester city. Steven hawkins would be a better left back than rose!! And he keeps his head up when taking a shot at goal also……. coaentro is better than ekotto and evra would be a good deal also.

  3. Lennon one decent cross and the papers make him man of the match just amazing.why doesnt he take a corner or freekick over thirty appearances this season with only one goal to his name totally useless.

  4. get rid of naughton rose dawson siggy jake paulinho wants out so fuck him off along with vertonghen who also wants off ans get rid of the pub manager sherwood, the only quality the bloke has is he is honest apart from that he is fucking clueless get in ashley cole class left back micah richards lukaku and louis van gaal to manage fuck baldini off as well
