    Don’t get me wrong Bum Bum, has I said, I would’ve sacked him after the Bradford game. I drove a round trip of 120 miles from my Herefordshire home that night still suffering the effects of gastro enteritis, then got stuck in the snow on the way back and didn’t get home till 2.30 am. Found it hard to forgive Lambert after that, just thought it fair to point out that he had done a very good job at previous clubs, and may do again.

    Basically Lambert became a miserable barsteward when he couldn’t get the results and I honestly think it seriously affected the players.

    Sherwood came in and reminded each player what to do. That and the optimistic attitude, mellowed with realism, got the players meshing again. I always knew we had the talent.

    A change of gaffer always some kind of reinvigorating effect and TS got it just about right. Let’s pray that it is not temporary and that he can build on it. Bring back Gary Gardener for example.

      You will find he can’t sustain it. Very similar manager to Gregory. When he took over and there was a mini league taking in the 15 or so games we actually would of won it. As you know he faded after a bit despite having a much better team than what Sherwood has. Sherwood is a decent short term manager that will motivate players. Tactically he is crap.

          Behave he didn’t tactically outsmart him at all. He knew their players inside out if he couldn’t give Spurs a good game then there is something seriously wrong. Just because he won one game dosn’t make him a better manager. Lamberk won against Mourinho last year so I suppose you think lamberk is the better manager!!

    Just did some quick stats. We’ve got 10 points from the 8 PL games so far under TS. We lost 2 games early on we might have at least drawn however even with this ratio of 1.25 points per game over a season that would give us 41 points in a season so comfortably above any relegation worries.

    I personally think that TS will better this ratio when he has more experience of working in the club and hopefully some new players. Don’t forget that without spending a penny we’ll have Kozak and Bent back soon. I’d love to see Kozak team up with Benteke and could we have a better super-sub than Bent?

    If we can get a creative midfielder (any chance of Milner coming back?) then I think we can do a hell of a lot better.

    If we do end up in mid-table mediocrity next season anyone who moans will have their Lambert-era posts re-published just to remind them that thing could (and have been) a hell of a lot worse.

    Personally hoping that QPR goes down so that Ramsey might be free to join TS. I’ve heard he’s a good tactician so tactics + motivation = wins

      Bent has to sign a new contract to stay on before we can claim he’s back. Having Kozak back would be huge though. Seems we’re interested in bringing in a striker if we really are scouting Bamford and Baston.

      I’d take mid-table mediocrity next season. Hell, we hit the 40 point mark by now, we’d be 12th, 3 points off 9th, 7 points off 7th. Wouldn’t be surprised if we hit that mark.

        Why is everyone having a wank fest over Kozac? I don’t remember him being anything great he put in the work but was incredibly slow and awkward. Will be ok to play of the bench but as a Benteke replacement forget it

          He’s not Benteke’s replacement. Benteke’s not going anywhere. I love how you misuse words all the time. No one’s having a wankfest over Kozak. Simply claiming we can’t wait to have him back because he was quality when he replaced Benteke during Benteke’s first injury last season, having both fit will be great next season.

    Sorry the calculation of 41 points was for games so far not for a whole season. If we’d achieved that we’d be in 12th place and above Everton 🙂

    Seems we’ve been scouting Bamford and Borja Baston. Seems we’re looking for a young striker. Or a striker but those two are both young anyways.

    Be nice to see if we’re really interested in Diego. I have my doubts we are, but he said he’ll leave and we’ve been linked.

    Tim Sherwood has impressed most in front of the camera. It isn’t difficult to improve on Lambert TBH, just speaking clearly in English would do it. But he has been frank and honest about his team’s performances and generous where needed (Old Trafford) to say we were well beaten by a better team on the day. Something Ferguson never did.

    Tim was also respectful and thankful for his Tottenham career opportunities when interviewed after the win. This in complete contrast to Spurs Chairman, Manager and programme editor. It must have been deliberate: they gave him one name check where it had to be listed, and not a single archive photo. This is pathetic, small-minded and rank bad manners.

    If you want to know why some clubs are respected for their good manners towards visitors, Arsenal, Everton, Villa and West Ham for example and some of the EPL not. This incident explains it. A distinguished former player, or former manager however ultimately unsuccessful, would always be acknowledged and have current and/or archive photos published in the programme when returning to any of the four clubs mentioned. Tottenham are shamed by their boorishness – they can suck on the score.

      Totally agree OLL.
      Some clubs have class.
      And some just don’t.

      In Spurs case, having read around a few Spurs sites and trying to gauge what their fans think (in between the extremes), well, I think quite a few of them think they might have made a mistake in getting rid of Sherwood so quickly.

      Of course, it’s early days yet.

      Pochettino might seem the better manager, but the fact is, he’s achieved no more than Spurs did last season, really.

        If Spurs don’t buck up they’ll end up doing quite a bit worse. They had 2 more points at exactly the same time last season and ended with 13 more from the last six games.

        Can’t see Spuds doing that the way they’re playing so points total at the end of the season is likely to be a lot lower. See the Spuds fans howl then…I’ll be loving that!

        Villa for the Cup!

        Behave Badger I know some spuds fans who have corporate boxes and season tickets at WHL and believe me they would rather have pochetino. One of my friends is well connected at spuds and said Sherwood rubbed a lot of players up the wrong way and it was all about him and his ego. He wasn’t rated tactically but seen as a decent short term stop gap after AVB. He will not do well at Villa trust me I was right about lamberk and I’m right about dim deadwood.

    Sherwood has been pictured at Swindon v Rochdale and seems Swindon fans believe Luongo will be a Villa player in the summer.

        Talented 22 year old midfielder. Former Spurs player, highly rated. Swindon fans rate him incredibly highly. Supposedly really good.

    “Tony Coton has been appointed as Aston Villa’s specialist goalkeeping scout, according to a report by our sister title The Daily Mirror.”

    Quote from the Birmingham Mail. Seems he’ll be working with Tony Parks and used to play with Sherwood at Watford.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
