Even though he signed an 18-month contract to be Tottenham’s manager over the winter, there’s always been the feeling that Tim Sherwood was nothing more than an interim coach. Today Spurs slipped to defeat at West Ham in a result that angered many fans who saw it as the last straw. Although Sherwood’s record is not a bad one, with Frank de Boer a more illustrious name being lined up, his days look numbered. With that in mind, here are three reasons he must go.
During his reign Sherwood has flitted between 4-4-2, 4-2-3-1, 4-2-4 and swapped players in and out as if he’s completing a Panini sticker album. Naturally this has upset the fans.
Sherwood plays Siggy and Bentaleb and no DM against the best attacking PL team/strike force and wonders why we lose. pic.twitter.com/QRZJvYI3zN

Yeah Sherwood shows “passion” (whatever that actually means) but he realistically has no clue what his best team is, nor tactics.

Sherwood claims he picks his team based on who plays best and performs in training, then why is Adebayor a constant starter and not Soldado

No defensive midfielder left Tottenham a little exposed to Andy Carroll’s unique skillset and has been a hallmark of Sherwood’s reign.

“I get the defenders to defend, the attackers to attack and the midfielders to do a bit of both”. Class tactics tactics from Sherwood. Lol.

Good get Sherwood out. No tactics at all.

Sherwood’s tactics are a joke

From the gilet to the Adebayor salute, Sherwood hasn’t helped himself!
On the last day of the season Tim Sherwood will pull a cord, his gilet will inflate & he’ll float away. I hope.

Can’t wait until next season when I can actually enjoy watching Spurs play again. Sherwood needs to leave, and take his awful gilet with him
