Three Reasons why Tottenham must sack Tim Sherwood

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.

Doesn’t know his best team

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.

Tactically naïve

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

He’s a bit of a joke

From the gilet to the Adebayor salute, Sherwood hasn’t helped himself!
