Tottenham Appoint Tim Sherwood As Head Coach Through May 2015

tim sherwood1 600x371 Tottenham Appoint Tim Sherwood As Head Coach Through May 2015

Tottenham Hotspur have appointed Tim Sherwood as Head Coach of Tottenham on an 18-month contract, which will end in May 2015.

Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy said:

“We were extremely reluctant to make a change mid-season, but felt we had to do so in the Club’s best interests.

“We have a great squad and we owe them a Head Coach who will bring out the best in them and allow them to flourish and enjoy a strong, exciting finish to the season.

“We are in the fortunate position of having within our Club a talented coach in Tim Sherwood.

“We believe Tim has both the knowledge and the drive to take the squad forward.”

Chris Ramsey, Les Ferdinand and Steffen Freund complete the First Team Coaching set up.

Having seemingly run out of plausible options of an ideal manager to replace Andre Villas-Boas in charge at Tottenham Hotspur, Daniel Levy decided to offer Tim Sherwood the manager’s job, which seems like a desperate move given the circumstances.

Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy had reportedly met with Louis Van Gaal in the Netherlands, but Van Gaal wasn’t available to take the job until the summer due to his commitment to the Dutch national team in the World Cup next summer.

      You think we will get relegated like wet spam did?

        You’ll be fine. My comment is more about Sherwood being a stop gap. I’ll be very surprised if he lasts 18 months. You can’t be too happy with this, no?

        • Dust says:

          No..this is a joke…ppl I read online are suggesting pep at barca as an example tot a manager without much 1st team experience….seriously? These ppl are absolutely insane.

          If Tim Sherwood does for Spurs what pep did for barra then sure I’ll say “great”…. But seriously…to compare the two is ridiculous.

          Levy didn’t back AVB and AVB said back me or I’m off, and levy didn’t so he said fine…bye…

          Sherwood has by all reports been a chief architect of discord at the club….

          For him to honestly say he didn’t play holt by or Capone in midfield and instead subbed bentelab on because “he doesn’t know the first team as we’ll yet” is quite ridiculous.

          Now there’s a “I’m a better supporter than you because I’m gonna blindly get behind Timnept.” amongst spurs supporters, Which also is ridiculous.

          35 years a supporter and I’ll support them for longer than levy, Sherwood and les Ferdinand are around that’s for sure.

          The language on the club site was interesting… I’d didn’t say the club are pleased or delighted to announce Timnept..just that they announce the appointment.

          He may last through the summer but no top four or trophy means he’s gone…and to be honest…I would not be surprised if he was gone after this season anyway as we get a manager with… We’ll at least his pro license and at least year of experience at league 2 level.

          If not Simeone (married to Baldini’s daughter I think)
          Or LVG after the WC….or maybe even Antonio Conte.

          Who knows….he has WBA & stoke at whl to ease him in then man Utd away and then faresenal away in the cup…

          Those two will be pivotal for him.

          I want the players to succeed…so during the game…I will support them as always we’ll see how long the 442 “ave a go” lasts before he has to employ some tactics.

          To be where we are while not playing great should scare other teams, what if Tim does get it to click & we start playing well?

          6pts behind KFC could be 3 pts behind Pfc after they get destroyed at city (fingers crossed 8/9-0 lol)

          It’s all still to play for…

          As you can tell as I was typing this on my iPad I started to drink heavily….

          Happy drunk! LoL
