“Didn’t achieve anything as a manager or a player” Former Spurs Boss Receives Brutal Backlash
By Harry Hotspur -

Tim Sherwood is weapons-grade Marmite. Some fans genuinely have a fondness for the former Tottenham player, who in truth did a decent job when stepping up to act as caretaker, after Andre Villas-Boas walked out.

Others find him a less commendable character. Here are just a smattering examples from today’s social media opinions.

The Sun are reporting that young Timothy’s latest pronouncements – this time about Joe Mourinho – have not been well received.

The former footballer claimed live on beIN Sports that the Portuguese will regularly throw his players “under a bus” – when referencing the very early substitution of Eric Dier last week against Olympiakos.

In particular, a long time friend of the Special One, Eladio Parames used his column in Record to set things straight, and there were no punches pulled.

Sherwood struggled after his stint as caretaker at Spurs.

The now 50-year-old from Borehamwood was appointed by Aston Villa briefly, from February to October in 2015. After losing 6 games in a win-less 10 game run, Sherwood was sacked.

After that there was another brief an even less successful spell at Swindon Town. Hired in November 2016, Tim was fired the following June, as Swindon Town had been relegated.

    Tim. PLAYERS in their natural positions playing in FORMATIONS that suit their style win football matches. That and their opponents being rubbish. 😁

      Yeah mate he was.. Hilarious alot of twitters/trolls run their mouths when completely wrong.. Slating timmy when he has won a title is so dumb.. I bet that bloke struggles to get in his local pub team the crown inn… Sherwood did ok as a manager for us. He saved villa from relegation and got them to fa cup final the same year too.. He was a better player than manager … Roy keane is the best pundit. Nearly always right. And hes funny as f**©.. “You need a striker? Then go get kane. 30 goals a season with his eyes shut. Go and get him. simple. What are you all staring at?” 😂
