Here's todays thread.

Be good and nasty things won't happen to you.

Today we go back to 2014, to a time when Tim Sherwood had been appointed manager

This morning we're pleased to be able to give you an exclusive and quite possibly completely made up interview with none other than Spurs temporary manager, Timothy Sherwood.

The interview took place is SC's plush offices the location of which i'm afraid we cannot reveal until the BSoDL withdraw the fatwah.

SC INTERVIEW WITH TIM SHERWOOD

SC Interviewer with big norks: So, Tim, welcome to SC, how are you settling in to your new job?

Tim Sherwood (eyes transfixed on the big norks): Yeah. Big, erm, brilliant, yeah.

SC Interviewer with big norks: Were you surprised to get the job?

Tim Sherwood: No not really. I've always been confident in my ability.

SC Interviewer with big norks: Well, that's fine, but you don't have much managerial experience do you? In fact, you don't have any. What do you think qualifies you for such a big job?

Tim Sherwood: Well, the club has a Subbuteo league every season and I won the title three years running.

SC Interviewer with big norks: Subbuteo?

Tim Sherwood: Yeah, the chairman loves it. He gets to run around on the pitch with his heroes and all that, left the FA cup, score goals, you know, it makes him feel like a pro. The only rule is that nobody is allowed to flick him up the bum. He's got quite a bit of pace actually……...

SC Interviewer with big norks: surprised.jpg

Tim Sherwood (still staring at the norks): Ever slept with a premiership manager?

SC Interviewer with big norks: Erm no. So your saying you got the job because you won the office Subbuteo league?

Tim Sherwood: Well, not JUST that……..I had to plan ahead like.

SC Interviewer with big norks: In what way?

Tim Sherwood: Well, I get listened to a lot when it comes to buying players. I make sure I vote against whoever the manager wants, then buy some right crap, slowly slowly catcheee monkey. as long as I go cheap, Levy loves me.

SC Interviewer with big norks: That's outrageous.

Tim Sherwood: Isn't it? So as you can see, i'm a smart cookie.

SC Interviewer with big norks: Smart or smarmy?

Tim Sherwood: Yeah I love cricket!

SC Interviewer with big norks: eh?

Tim Sherwood: Smarmy army! Smarmy army!

SC Interviewer with big norks: What the fuck…….

Tim Sherwood: Everywhere we go-oh………People want to know-oh

SC Interviewer with big norks: What are you doing?

Tim Sherwood: No, the next line is who we are

SC Interviewer with big norks: I think that's slowly becoming more and more obvious.

Tim Sherwood: Chill babe, I got this. Goodnight.

SC Interviewer with big norks: OK, lets start again shall we? Swansea away, a tough game, how will you be approaching it?

Tim Sherwood: Well, I was thinking M4 and then the A483

SC Interviewer with big norks: Oh for fucks sake. That's not what I meant. The game, the game, how will you play against fucking Swansea?

Tim Sherwood: We'll attack them from out wide. I'm playing 6 wingers in the hope of nullifying their midfield. It'll be a hard game but as I keep saying to the lads, we're only ever three flicks from a goal.

SC Interviewer with big norks: Flicks?

Tim Sherwood: *Makes Subbuteo flicking gesture………...You got it babe. Champions! Champions!

SC Interviewer with big norks: *sighs and mutters under her breath 'This club is well and truly fucked'

SC Interviewer with big norks: Thanks for your time Tim

Tim Sherwood: Pleasure, babe. Want to comeback to mine? See my league title medal?

SC Interviewer with big norks: I'll pass thanks.

Tim Sherwood: Fucking hell babe, if you can pass, i'll sign you up! Here's a pen *unzips flies

SC Interviewer with big norks: Fuck right off.

At this point the interview was terminated. At no point during the interview did Tim Sherwoods eyes leave the SC interviewers big norks. The SC interviewer with the big norks was played by Bill Oddie. The big norks were played by Stoof and TSH.

Enjoy.

Mornin!

Last I checked Breezer said Barkley was a step closer and Hertyid said he doesn't think much of anything will happen this window due to how quiet it's been. That about sum it up?

The doom and gloomers won't like the fact that we might not do much, but for me it shows belief in what we have and continuity. Furthermore means belief in the youth to move up and take on responsibility.

I still think we will get one or two in but I wouldn't be surprised if we just see slew of new and richer contracts for our elite players.

Re Hertyids ITK.

To be honest I'm not entirely sure that should have been classed as ITK. His words 'I really don't think....', are surely his opinion and and not passed on info, no?

Does anybody really believe that we will just bank the £80m we received for Bentaleb, Carrol, Fazio, Njie and Walker and will not bring anybody in? I have faith in Poch as he knows our youngsters better than anyone but it's a stretch to believe that we can compete for the title again with just 'promising' youngsters boosting the squad imo.

For me it shows resting on our laurels, and hoping we don't get our usual injuries. I think Levy is fantastic and has been great for the club, but really think we need to improve at least the squad with some quality players.

The latest ITK is grim news but I honestly cannot believe we will not buy a couple of players probably not before the season starts but by the time window ends.
Maybe there might be better ITK news today although I would be surprised if anyone is in before season starts.

Thats the problem right there, we dont need players like other clubs, we just need squad players. The only position we need cover in is right back. But it would be nice getting cover in for Eriksen.

It beggars belief that we would simply bank a massive amount of money from sales of players and not invest in bolstering the squad. We already are seeing huge windfalls of cash with the 150 million pounds of television revenue we just took in (guaranteed for two more seasons), the new Nike kit deal and the guaranteed Champions League revenue we'll see for this upcoming season. Even if we don't tap into any of those revenue streams to finance transfers, surely money from the sale of Walker, at the least, should be reinvested into buying a few players.

Also, it's really important that people not lose sight of how horrific we were in Europe last season. We had a disastrous set of performances in the Champions League and were dumped out of the Europa League by a lower tier European team over two legs. We also lost to rivals in both the domestic cup competitions. Yes, we were spectacular in league play, but those other cup results happened, and we can't just ignore them when we analyze our squad.

With Lamela and Rose missing the first part of the season, Walker sold, Son still recovering from injury and Dele suspended for the first three Champions League matches, we've got to at least bring in one quality player to help us cope with the early season schedule.

Remember, Poch was furious last year at our CL performances and railed that our squad wasn't good enough to cope with the intensity of two difficult competitions. He's really been a gentleman in not lashing out in regards to some of our transfer dealings since he got here, but I suspect there's only so much he can take (and the recent ITK seems to foreshadow trouble on the horizon if things don't improve).

I agree with Hertyid. I think there might end up being signings, but I truly don't think we are signing any big names or anybody that will cause a mass SC orgasm. It will all be some version of mundane.

JJ in reply to 'is the Italy deal close?' On twitter

What deal ?
I had a lovely Cornetto yesterday & was thinking how nice is ....

Cornetto were originally manufactured in Naples- maybe nothing, but maybe a clue?

Isn't this the 2nd time JJ's mentioned Cornetto's? That's definitely gotta be a hint then.
Someone from Napoli perhaps though I'm not going to guess who cos I don't know their team we all at all.

Actually can't remember a window this quiet, but I mean even in terms of speculation. We're normally linked with players left right and centre. It's almost as if our team is at such a level now that they can't believably link us with just any player they like now.

We need to add quality depth to the squad, and playing CL and playing home games at Wembley with a new stadium on the horizon, should be our time to cement some quality players and our time in the top four for years to come. We dropped a bollock not signing a quality forward when Harry got us CL. We can't afford to miss the boat again with regards to what we can offer them.

I'd love to get Barkley, Kovacic, Perreira, and a younger guy who can play up top or out wide. That would show our intent and make us much stronger for next year.
