Some of us have been scanning the news feeds for most of today to see if Daniel Levy has acted swiftly in removing Tim Sherwood as the club’s head coach. Tottenham’s former midfielder had been in charge since December and while he had failed to take the club back into the Champions League, he did defend his record which ended, for 2013-14 at least, with a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa.

“I’ve got a 59 per cent win ratio in the Premier League and I think if I had started the season in charge we’d be in the Champions League,” Sherwood said.

“We’d scored 15 when I took the job and we’ve scored 40 goals since then. It will be interesting to see how I’ve been judged and what I’ve been judged on.”

Tim also declared that he hoped the matter would be resolved very quickly.

“I think it would make sense to have it resolved as soon as possible – I’m not sure what’s going to happen, I haven’t spoken to Daniel about what the future holds,” he added.

“We need to have a sit down and we need to have a chat. I’ve enjoyed it, it’s been great, it’s been an honour to manage this football club and long may it continue.” He added: “If it is to be my last game, life goes on. There were no tears shed out there on the lap of honour. “This club means a lot to me but if I’m not to continue here as manager I’ll be somewhere else.”

A quick announcement would be best for all parties but amidst growing claims that Rafa Benitez is being lined up, who is your favourite for the job?

    • here we go again yet another manager supposedly coming. im surprised my bank manager has not been put in the frame. tim sherwoods 59% record speaks for its self even harry only managed 54%. Sherwood only had half a .season. I personally think with a full pre season and being allowed to sort his own squad out we would finish top four.

  1. I agree with Tim Sherwood, the matter should be resolved as soon as possible for the sake of all four parties
    ie Spurs the Club, Tim Sherwood, The Spurs Squad, The Spurs Fans.
    The new manager will have to build his own squad which will mean a certain amount of trimming and a few good replacements. All this will take time, so the sooner the better.
    Who will be the new manager ?
    Roberto Martinez – unlikely to leave Everton just yet.
    Rafa Benitez – He would be my choice -Premier experience
    Has his home in England – A proven winner – wants to return to the premiership.
    Whatever Daniel Levy decides to do I would ask him, on a very urgent basis, to do it QUICKLY.

    • Definitely Benitez, throw the League which we can neither win, nor drop out of, and put all our eggs into winning the Europa League (7 matches against Prem standard opposition), and qualify for the CL that way.

  2. agree we need closure on the manager position big problem with timmy is his gob this will not stop this is not condusive to levy wanting him to stay yes some results havent been that bad but maybe lost a few players respect along the way anyway good luck wherever you end up timmy

  3. I don’t give a crap about Sherwood’s gob what disappointed me was his poor team selection tactics, the only Conclusion is that he is a noob. all the fans should be able to see this unless they have noob syndrome and the only cure is a slap across the face, so get to work boys
