No doubt he will be disappointed with dropping points at home to West Brom, but our new manager/head coach has made a mark already. Almost immediately we look better as a team, individually players are performing better, our play is faster and everything seems rosier.
This stark improvement is more of a cross against Andre Villas-Boas. Sherwood himself has said how little time he has had to get his message across and yet every aspect of our team looks better. It appears AVB was a hindrance on this team rather than a help.
Our ex-player might be benefiting from the experience of his playing days as he integrates our summer signings into the team. AVB rushed players straight into the starting lineup, right into the spotlight, but Sherwood is showing better squad and player management. How he does in the tactical battles is yet to be seen. Manchester United and Woolwich away provide his first real tests.
It helps to play in your proper position, in an uncomplicated system. Some redemption for the other Kyle after a bit of a schooling against Raheem Sterling.
Scored a fabulous free kick on Thursday, and now seemingly set to play the Modric role. The number 10 role always seemed a little too high up the pitch for a player of his type, and Sherwood has addressed that immediately.
Back with a bang, and a chance to tear apart Patrice Evra once again on Wednesday.
A great solo effort for Swindon and continues to impress in League One. What will Sherwood decide to do with him in the second half of the season?
Absent from this week's games, just when we are creating proper goal scoring opportunities. It is either very unfortunate, or a sign he is off in January to Toronto, depends how sceptical you want to be.
Plenty of injuries to deal with already, Naughton was clutching the back of his leg, Adebayor was hobbling a little when he was subbed off. With two more games this coming week, the medical department will be operating at full capacity.
