FDB's playing record is also a plus.....he has played at a higher dimension than the rest of our merry bunch of spurs

That was neither a pro not anti Sherwood comment.

But let's get real, he ain't the man for the job.
It'd be like Manure giving David May the job.


I've got nothing against Sherwood, I liked him as a player and don't have the ridiculous hatred for him that most on here do.
But he's not the man to take us forward.

Harry and AVB between them beat everyone in the top 4 plus manure when they were in it.
Timmy looks totally out of his depth against those teams.
Really? AVB did? When?

Why do some fans look at Tim as a guy who ever had a rat's chance in hell of being given the job beyond this season?! He was employed as an interim manager. He's probably exceeded the board's expectations, but they must have also noticed his embarrassing flappy mouth and his chancer-style tactics. More luck than judgment I reckon!
Well his chancer style tactics have got us a heck of a lot of good results so I'm generally happy with them.

Interesting point.

Not sure how i'd feel about it to be honest
We would have to back the new guy 100%. That means whoever he wants to bring with him he can. God knows the Spurs job is hard enough without being denied your backroom team. Is De Boer the right man? He's in with a great chance. Not sure Tottenham is so much better than Ajax as a job given how often teams win things but he could have said he wasn't interested but didn't which makes me think this could be a done deal. Poor Ajax, they must feel the same way about us as we feel about Madrid.

As Dim is not out of contract yet, sell him to RM for 10 million pounds.

Season ticket renewal time .

Nothing more , nothing less .

The club usually leaks details of a tenuous link to a world beating player .

This time it's a manager .

As soon as the renewal date has passed this will fall through .
But the article is based on an interview that FDB gave in Holland.

Give your cynicism a slap mate, his advice sucks.

Personally I'd love Bergkamp at Spurs, having read what he's had to say on coaching philosophy. The fact that ha used to play for the goons is irrelevant to me. If Overmars has the same attitude and the ability to back it, I'd welcome him with open arms too.

I really can't see them viewing an appointment at Spurs as 'disrespecting' the goons either. Whilst they will recognize the rivalry, it's not like they will have snubbed them for us.

Another point to consider. Southampton, after being relegated and struggling in lower league Football, restructured their set up and brought in a largely Dutch set up to restructure their fundamental philosophy. Since then, they have been producing the talent, and the Football, that many have been raving about.

I said it about LVG, I'll say it about these guys, their philosophy is originally the Spurs philosophy.

Bring in the Dutch and Football is coming home.

I would love to see Berkamp brought in alongside de Boar - it would be pretty hilarious seeing Arsenal's reaction and what they would do with that statue! he was a Spurs fan after all!

Look Gaz, Tim is just a rookie with a wandering mouth. If the club can bring in better, I'm all up for that! We need a guy to bring some stability and above all else, some dignity back to our club. The right manager could do a lot with the players we have.
I think i read that post before we appointed Santini, no sorry it must have been Jol...........bugger i meant Redknapp, shit sorry i meant AVB...............or it could have been today regarding Sherwood....:bag:

Last season.

Tottenham 2-1 Arsenal
Man United 2-3 Tottenham
Tottenham 3-1 Manchester City

Non top four home win over Liverpool.

Didn't beat chelski but Redknapp did and he beat Liverpool and arsenal away.

Tim, played the current top four, conceded 15 and scored one iirc.

What was AVB's record this season against these teams, without a Bale-inspired Spurs team....which is the same squad that Tim is working with?

I'm excited about this... as for Bergkamp, I'd be delighted to have him coaching our players, he was a wizard of a footballer. But as has been said I think he'd have too much respect for his Gooner legend status to join us.
