    If those figures are accurate, then opposition to Tim Sherwood is nothing short of deranged. Over a whole season those figures would translate into 74 points - our highest ever in the premier league.

    I don't give a damn about his results against the top teams. Those results will only improve as the squad beds in, and Tim recruits his own players. He is a Spurs man, proud to do the job, bold, spiky, ruthless and authoritative - in short, he has all the psychological hallmarks of a winner.

    Why don't people like him? Is it prejudice about his accent? Or because he supported Arsenal as a boy?

    Something irrational is influencing people's judgments about him. The style of the team? Irrational. The same people moaning about performances are also moaning about needing more defensive players. It doesn't make sense.

    The same people banging on about 'experience' are forgetting that Sherwood has precisely that: experience of managing Spurs, and managing them successfully. It doesn't make sense.

    Oh god, not people going on about PPG again, thought we already established that they were meaningless?

    Is Ferguson's very high points per game meaningless? Thank you for instantly proving my point about irrationality.

    Quite a digression, but the thing that didn't sit well with the Fryers deal was a tribunal setting the fee of a contractless 19 year old boy to £6 million. Aboslute ridiculous fee, which is supposed to be a compensation for training him - not a transfer fee as such, and in turn made the boy unable to do his profession in his home country.

    That we bought him six months later after his manager had been sacked and he had lost his place in the squad, should not be considered classless in my opinon.

    What does Ferguson have to do with Tim Sherwood?

    Both shiteholes?
  9. slartibartfast
    He doesnt HAVE to do anything but it would be nice if he would ;)
    Dancing on ice perhaps?

    PPG is indeed a meaningless statistic in this case as its being taken from different samples of games played under very different conditions. Given the narrow difference between AVB's and TS's, there's just no way to know if AVB would have done better or worse during Sherwood's sample and vice versa.

    100% correct.

    Granted you cant tell what may happen but you have to make an educated guess on what may happen using all the variables available and AVB appeared to be taking us backwards at high speed and pissing of the fans (those actually paying to watch it) in the process.
    Yes its possible he may have turned it around and we won the title but not very likely.
    I think its a safe bet that Fdb would do a better job than TS and attract better players. On the other hand he might get us relegated lol.

    The PPG in themselves do not give the whole picture. Granted AVB only had the first 16 league games of the season and he had 7 new players to try and bed into his system, whilst TS has had the last 20 when those 7 players have had more time with the squad to settle in. It does indicate, however, that TS is not the failure that some on here seem to be implying.

    At no point have I said I enjoyed watching us play under AVB. We we're utter gash with no signs of progression. And it's the same now - just with some goals thrown in, some of Which have been just as fortuitous as the penalties you talk about. Tim is doing better
    Than AVB in that respect but that is no yardstick on which to decide whether to give him longer in the post.
    You may enjoy watching us defend like a bunch of 3 year olds but I don't and Timms has been just as lucky in that respect as AVB was with his penalties. And as mentioned before, I see no evidence at all after half a season of any training being put into practice on the pitch.

    Iv'e been doing that since Jimmy Greaves left WHL. I does not work. Honest.

    I think his second game in charge was against West Ham in the CC and the FA Cup game that we lost 1-0 was to the team that we always go to and win.

    I would say that if you judged any manager in the way you have summed up Sherwood, God almighty would be out on his arse after half a season.
