Bitterness for Sherwood

He did better than I expected him to do when he took over for us - although I suspect he really just profited from AVB exiting the same way Di Matteo did at Chelsea

For whatever reason good players were no longer performing for AVB, but they were still good players so once he went they performed better despite rather than because of Di Matteo and Sherwood respectively

He got himself another job above his station at Villa and somehow made it to the FA cup final which made him look good but his transfers that summer were a complete joke (especially as it contradicted all his talk about utilising English talent/youth) and he was rightfully sacked after performing terribly

I'm not really surprised to see him failing even in the lower divisions

I personally have never rated AVB, I think he was highly over rated but compared to Sherwood AVB is Sir Alex. At least AVB is a manager, Sherwood is a jobs for the boys hire like Sir Les who never has been and never will be a real manager

I don't really care about Sherwood one way or the other though, I don't consider him to be Spurs despite playing for, captaining and eventually managing the club. If he proves me wrong and becomes a successful manager fair play to him, either way I don't care

I've got to admit I was a bit surprised that this thread wasn't bumped after Swindon were relegated last week, but it was probably because everyone else already knew that Tim Sherwood never actually worked at Swindon....

"If the players were as passionate and had the drive of the owner and the chairman then they wouldn't be relegated."

Tim Sherwood. Man-management stalwart and arm-around-the-shoulder proper football man.

How long did it take the penny to drop with the "proper football man" brigade? The guy is just a second hand car salesman all promises and giving it the big one but nothing is ever his fault when it inevitably goes down in flames.

Having said all this you can guarantee the soccer saturday lads will all get behind him and say he's been "unlucky" and it's actually the fault of all these "forrin" managers coming over here taking the jobs of decent family men like poor old tim.

He's like a bin man who turns up, moves your bins about, has a cup of tea, uses your khazi, watches your telly, takes the piss out of you, then fucks off without emptying the bins.

Seriously, man. You need to have a word if your bin man keeps doing this...

Swindon fans hate him too it seems. Didn't take them long.

(R) Swindon Town, 22nd

Hello League Two, it’s not been long enough! But the writing was on the wall from mid-November and, despite a raft of loan signings in the window, the inevitable happened in the penultimate game of the season. We have a chairman more concerned with finances than results. There’s a strained relationship between the club and local media. We have a manager who is actually no more than a coach. And then there’s Tim Sherwood... Shaun Crowe
