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.”
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.
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.”
