Timothy Alan Sherwood late (thanks be to God) of this parish is at it again. Trying to shoehorn himself into the THFC history books – so on the off chance that Poch delivers – old Owlface can can try and kid fans he was in involved.

Despite the fact he wasn’t involved, the unpleasant peasant still has some pull with journalists prepared to take his free copy and foist it onto us as if it was in any respect worth reading. Which it isn’t of course -unless one either fancies a laugh or nudging up one’s blood pressure.

Tim Sherwood on his Spurs reign, that win record and how he set the platform for Mauricio Pochettino’s success…

…screams the Independent. Sherwood sucking on a Corona lolling back in a hotel armchair whilst talking to the Indy’s Luke Brown takes ‘life imitating art’ to a new, blood curdling depth. “The club was on the slide. They were down and needed stabilising. Look, they needed someone at the time and there was nobody else to come in, but I was there and knew the players. It was an opportunity for me and I took it.”

…mused Brent.

I’ll spare you more quotes. Tim talking is like listening someone on palliative care excitedly describing their next holiday. Tim was a deeply divisive character at Spurs just as he was – even at Blackburn which was supposedly his most splendid era.

Sherwood had nothing to do with the success that followed years after he left Tottenham, but at Aston Villa and Swindon Town where he was unquestionably in the pivotal coaching position, he teed both sides up for relegation.

There have been no offers Tim. It’s time to knock all this pretence on the head and stop trying to pass yourself off as a football manager.

I lied.

Here’s the killer quote. You’re intelligent so you’ll get it.

Just like David Brent, Tim’s in his own distorted world and doesn’t see how treacle-thick his lack of self-awareness is…

“If somebody wants to show me the same commitment that I would show to the job, then great. But with a lot of the jobs I have discussed since Villa, the clubs have been more keen to speak about the divorce before the marriage. They just want to talk about what happens when it goes wrong and I want the opportunity to build something.”

    A unusual feeling of semi confidence going into the biggest game of the season. I’m going for a 2 nil win but have a sneaky feeling it’ll be a draw. Never watch these ones so will be going off grid in me man cave until after the match.

    Just wanted to pop in to say that Tactics Tim is a total cunt. I read the full thing yesterday and it just reads as a sad angry lonely narcissist. Thank fuck the gimp is no longer anything to do with us. Remember when he was being tipped for years as the long term future of our management.

    Twat.

    According to Klopp Liverpool have a ‘special relationship’ with Southampton because they’ve bought a whole team off them over the last few years.

    With the exception of Mane Liverpool paid over the odds for all of them.

    Still finding it weird expecting us not to lose when we play goons away!! Need a Dembele masterclass today, bully our way through midfield and we should have em. It might well be Dembele and Sissy sat behind C of E, Alli and Kaninho, Winks to come on late when we up and need to retain the ball late in the game..

    • AccringtonSpurs November 18, 2017 at 8:08 am

      I’d start Winks if he’s fit. Bring Sissy on after 80 minutes.

      • McG⚽⚽ November 18, 2017 at 8:10 am

        I think Sissy plays better on the counter, and is more imposing, think it’s a tough call either way!

        • AccringtonSpurs November 18, 2017 at 8:11 am

          He’s a gooner, tho 😉

          • McG⚽⚽ November 18, 2017 at 8:14 am

            Hmm, guess Winks will certainly fight for every single ball, there is that!

    Sister in laws wedding today and my sicknote didn’t fly. I suppose because 1. She is fluent in English 2. I signed it myself 3. She was smart enough and knows me well enough to look at who the yids were playing.

    So as much as I’m amazed that I’m saying this I will be relying on you bunch of misfits to keep me informed while I munch my way through 10 courses and a bottle of Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 (lovely tipple).

      Yup, I’ve got a morning of tricky planning. Dropping our lad off at my mum’s so wife and I can stay somewhere nice. 90 Min Drive but have to time it so I can arrive, do pleaseantries and either get to the hotel to watch online or find a pub in the middle of the back of beyond showing the game. Somewhere that won’t mind me shouting at the telly for the whole game. It’s not easy being a Yid. Or having a family. Or both together.

      • AccringtonSpurs November 18, 2017 at 7:47 am

        Do you have an iPhone?

        There’s an app called “Around Me” could be useful for finding a pub.

        • Not a Real Fan. November 18, 2017 at 7:54 am

          Thanks Acc, I have got that but it’s rugby territory so I’m actually having to call places in advance to confirm. They’re either gastropubs who snort derisively at me or rugger-buggers who dismiss me with snobbery. Fucking Wiltshire.

      now that Levy has shed a few pounds you would think that he would invest in some new clothes that fit.You would think that but there again you wouldnt.

      Levy looks like a slighlty less vampirey Nosferatu.

    Nobody wants Timmy to manage their team but Levy did it as it was a cheap option.

    Villa bought the fact he won the league as a player with Blackburn and his few months as Spurs as reason to employ him. The rest is history….

  • East Stand November 18, 2017 at 12:24 am

    The journo went with the header ‘how he set the platform for Poch’s success’. No evidence that Timmy actually said that, and as much as I have no time for Timmy you have to acknowledge when these hacks do and write what they like.

    The AVB and post AVB Timmy ‘era’ is a fairly sad period of time for the club but in reality it’s par for the course for ENIC.

    Endless dead end managerial appointments, DOF failings and revolving door transfer policy was a hallmark of Levy/ENIC pre Poch.

    Timmy was symptomatic of their rudderless steering of the Spurs ship until Poch arrived. Poch was an accident, things like Comolli, Baldini, Arry, AVB and Timmy were all part of the ENIC chaos.

    Poch is showing Levy that he really should leave football to people that have at least a shread of understanding of how it works…

    • The Good The Bad and the Spurtsty 💋 November 18, 2017 at 2:01 am

      I think if you read the quotes in full you’ll see that he does appear to infer that MoPo’s success is due in part to his short tenure.

      • The Good The Bad and the Spurtsty 💋 November 18, 2017 at 2:11 am

        Not that it really matters.

      • East Stand November 18, 2017 at 9:16 am

        I’m sure he is inferring things because he’s full of shit but the tagline reads that he’s actually said that, I’m just highlighting the way these hacks try and ramp things up to get us to read their (and in this case Timmy’s) useless crap…

    The 59%! He whopped it out there on the table yet again, didn’t he? I’m beginning to pity him, which is the next stage on from the rage and hatred before. Fucking 🤡

    • Harry Hotspur November 18, 2017 at 6:09 am

      Timbo’s win percentage is like the line on those skincare adverts. ‘79% of 32 people surveyed who expressed an opinion and were left handed said if they squinted whilst standing upside down their skin might probably look visibly improved’…

      • Not a Real Fan. November 18, 2017 at 7:50 am

        It’s literally the only measure of managerial success that he can point to, and it’s not even real. He’s the Louis CK of managers, constantly playing pocket billiards over his supposed genius.

    When I think back to *that* Adebayor/Sherwood touch-line salute not only do my piles start throbbing angrily but I feel.deep.shame that I ever thought those two were Spurs.

    I mean, I know they weren’t Hoddle, Gazza or Burkinshaw Spurs, but now I realise that they were greedy, selfish decievers. They were anti-Spurs.
