I reckon TS will be a very good manager in the future, when he develops more skill in handling star players (as opposed to youth players, whom he plainly understands how to handle very, very well), better judgment with the press and more tactical sophistication and variety.
When you have been actively watching football (as opposed to just seeing it) and you understand what is happening then you develop an awareness and knowledge of tactics. From his comments and his apparent paucity of tactical knowledge, it seems to me that Sherwood just sees what is happening. I suspect 'tactical sophistication and variety' will always be beyond him. Furthermore, he seems to lack the wit to deflect a media question; so I doubt that there is any hope for him there.
