11 O’Clocker: Talks Confirmed, Hint Dropped, Reflux Triggered

11 O’Clocker: Talks Confirmed, Hint Dropped, Reflux Triggered

Tim Sherwood would probably fare better if he walked into pressers and asked the hacks if anyone knew any good jokes.

On the subject of Louis Van Gaal, Shergar (©ODM) became very tetchy.

He’s obviously destined to want to manage in England. He’s got a good track record and he’s a good manager. I’m sure he’ll get his opportunity – he’s been shouting loud enough for it.

My future’s out of my hands. I believe I’ll be here next year. I’m planning for next season. The players are playing for their futures.”

On the spiralling rumours about winger Yevhen Konoplyanka Tim was masterful. He used words that oozed understanding of transfer market complexities “we’ve got to make sure we do our recruitment job on them” and words that made me reflux a little, “Nobody else will come in here unless I sanction it.”

He’s obviously a player who’s been linked with the club because he’s a good player. He’s certainly one who’s being talked about, but there’s nothing definitive.

I think we have to make sure we see a lot more of these guys before they come in, not just the highlights because we’ve got to make sure we do our recruitment job on them.

Not at the moment. Nobody else will come in here unless I sanction it. You can’t work any other way.

The manager has got to work with the players so, unless he gets the players he wants, it’s always going to be an uphill task. He will always have the excuse of ‘well they’re not my players’.”

To be blunt, this talentless toad can sit in the pressers reading the phone book. But the “He will always have the excuse of ‘well they’re not my players'” line chilled me to the bone.

For those that still believe that André “sanctioned” all of the Magnificent Seven, this is your biggest clue yet.

Yachtsman Back in the late forties, when I first crewed on seine-netters, there were skippers of different types, some more adventurous than others, some more lucky, and some slow to keep pace with change, but not one of them would have lasted a month in his job had he not impressed the boats’ owners with his basic competence, a competence demonstrated every time he took his vessel out and brought her back to port. Those owners were hard to impress, many of them having spent a large part of their lives at sea, not to mention the investment they had.… Read more »

So when we do badly its down to TS incompetence- when we have the better of one of the teams in Europe in THEIR back yard the the Manager doesn’t get a mention. As we say here ‘way to be constructive guys’. Just try whispering it once ‘well done Tim’.

Impressed by the effort of Bentaleb. He still needs to learn not to frig about in mid field. Looks like he will lose position still.

I can’t work out what to do with Soldado. Probably best to wait until Van Gaal comes in. Ja graag! (Dutch for yes please)

Sweetsman
March 20, 2014 7:56 pm

I hope Chadli gets a run out on Sunday. We did well tonight and it was heroic tonight. A blatant penalty turned down, but also great chances fashioned tonight. Naughton, Chadli, Bentaleb and Fryers played well.

Sweetsman
March 20, 2014 7:34 pm

Why have so many of our players had back problems?
Great goal from Chadli, who has played well.

The Tottinghams
March 20, 2014 7:21 pm

Interested to hear people’s thoughts on Soldado

Sweetsman
March 20, 2014 7:27 pm

Zero confidence. Wishes he wasn’t here. Not chasing down anything or getting himself into any position to score. Chadli has been better than him. Soldado has been frustrating.

Sweetsman
March 20, 2014 7:03 pm

Townsend is abject tonight. Am I allowed to say that?

The Tottinghams
March 20, 2014 7:16 pm

20% of the time he is clueless & 80% of the time he isn’t interested. (Nice cut in there though)

You can tell he thinks he has made it and shouldn’t really have to try

We have a perfect squad for LVG: fast attacking/goalscoring wingers, a deep lying creative midfielder (Holtby) and a clinical strikers. One thing I’m curious to see (if he signs obviously) is if he’ll convert Dembele back into a striker… That would rectify out need for a third senior striker, it would thin out our midfield (which is needed) and would give us tactical versatility. Remember that Dembele has a great shot and excellent dribbling (like you need reminding) it’s just the final ball that eludes him. Seeing as he would be playing striker, he wouldn’t need to be setting players… Read more »

Knowing our luck, on the day we are due to get Van Gaal, United sack Moyes and steal him right out from under our noses.

lucky us they mamaged to beat Olympiakos last night hey ? I have the same feelign you do. Hence, they must pass us in the league and make it in the CL.

March 20, 2014 7:22 am

The word in Rooney is out of the hole and up front for tonight. Bobby Soldier has trench, sorry bench foot and is to be rested again.

Come on you b’stards – get behind our Timmy – make an effort to understand the circumstances he faces……..

YidinExile
March 20, 2014 7:27 am

as i said above, as well as numerous times in the past, I REFUSE to support timmy or get behind him, REFUSE !!!.

If that, in the opinion of other fans, makes me less of a fan then I really don’t care. the time of automatically getting behind a team, coach or whoever, is long gone, at least as I’m concerned.
I couldn’t care less if he was forced to manage this club at gunpoint, he is tactically retarded and not as bright as he thinks, probably much less.

Been up since 5.30 so have a head start on you. Take it easy and don’t blow a gasket tonight.

YidinExile
March 20, 2014 7:41 am

Listen, even if they beat us 11-1 i wouldn’t blow a faking fing. Soem on here have commented that they actually enjoy seeign us lose, I’m not quite there yet, but am gettign there as full throttle. TDawg has simply got to go – treat symptoms first, and the real malaise later. Tim is just the symptom, agreed, but I despise him. I truly do.

When Levy found out Timmy was sending the yoofs. he cancelled the plane and hired a coach and got a ferry discount.

I wonder what Timmy has got on Levy.

melcyid
March 20, 2014 1:05 am

Timmy said he might stick up one finger to the Portugeezer, Dont worry we have Harry Winks in the squad and a 16 year old.
This is Timrous finest moment what he has been working towards half the yoofs are there with him.” I told you youd get your moment.”all going to plan eh

March 20, 2014 12:44 am

As Spurstacus so rightly said recently, Tim’s only qualifications are that he has a forest named after him. That being said, he is obviously not the leader of a bunch of merry men and his best friend does appear to be Sheriff Levy of Tottingham.

The only thing that makes life as a Spurs fan unfair is the delusion that it should be fair.

Wasn’t Tony Pulis available when Tottenham and AVB parted company? I know he’s not what most fans would like at Tottenham, (presumably). But better than? Well, you know.

David
March 20, 2014 12:10 am

“He’s been shouting loud enough for it”. Sounds a bit defective? But Classy too, I might add. So, well done Tim, your making us proud! And also, he’s got a good track record? What is that suppose to be, some sort of an acknowledgement? From one experienced manager to another maybe? Gaal must think, keep going lad, your practically giving me the job. (If I want it, that is?) This sucks to say I know, but I actually half enjoyed watching us get beat over the last few game. Like its some sort of revenge on the management at Tottenham!… Read more »

It’s worth tuning in tmrw just to see if Benfica boss has another dig at Sherwood on the touchline

Spurstacus
March 19, 2014 11:59 pm

Tim, with his 18mth, 500k, caretaker contract is planning to be Spurs manager next season. But the players, many of whom are on very long – very expensive contracts, are all playimg for their futures. It must be wonderful to have that much self belief.

It’s called “I believe in miracles.”

longrangesniper
March 20, 2014 12:02 am

Well, nobody else will ‘come in here’ unless he sanctions it. So I guess the players know who’s the boss.

Spurstacus
March 19, 2014 11:53 pm

What I do really love about TSmaid, is that in so many of our games under him we have had nothing to lose. Tomorrows another one. Also under Tim we are never under any pressure. Which is great.

longrangesniper

Depends who who define as “we.”

I feel under pressure every time we kick off in any game under this complete muppet

I hope TS has his barnet covered up, the eagle could mistake it for a smaller bird and attack.

There might be a whole big cheer – from North London!!!

Does anybody know if AVB lost out on compensation when he took up his new post,or was it a one off payment he got?Did he get any compo at all?Surely if he walked he would not be due anything.My guess is mutual consent with a payment with golden handcuffs.

Baz
March 19, 2014 11:20 pm

It could get messy if Benfica decide to field their strongest 11 tomorrow.

DAVID
March 19, 2014 11:17 pm

I am just hoping we don’t get battered tomorrow, a CB pairing of Sandro and A.N. other is a great concern and by playing Sandro there we weaken our midfield.
