    Why exactly does this undermine the team? He told the team in private how bad they played, and he explained in public what he told the team. Everyone, every fan, could see that Spurs capitulated that day. Do you really want a manager who glosses over an appalling display? I'd be more concerned if our manager said we played well after a second half like that.

    In any case, he didn't 'undermine the team'. The team was winning. A lot. He won enough games to get us in the top four over a whole season.

    You missed the point about sample size. Never mind!

    You keep extrapolating to pointless effect. When AVB left we were five points from fourth; at the end of the season, we were three points from Arsenal. That's a one point difference, one measly point.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, I don't believe Sherwood ever named a player specifically he referred to the group at the end of the day it had to be said because our results got to an embarrassing familiarity. Cast your memory back to the time of AVB, we were taking some real hammerings that's what caused AVB he's job.

    Good win for them today and i watched the whole game. Although Leicester are no Chel$ea Villa played some good footie until it came to the final third where they became clueless. I think that Sherwood has sufficient talent at Villa for them to stay up this season.

    i didn't say he mentioned any player by name; it was someone else's comment where names were brought up. AVB left because of differences with Levy and Baldini over signings and Adebayor. He also had had enough of certain sections of the English tabloid press, specifically shysters like Samuel and Ashton. Despite working for the Tory party house paper, Samuel must be worried about the government's plans for the obese.

    Time goes on and you get no more original.

    Spot on assessment. Sherwood was never a long term appointment in my opinion but did as good a job given his short period in charge.

    He may not have put his point across in the way someone like Woy Hodgeson would have done but i cannot fault his frankness when assessing that performance after the Chel$ea loss.

    I said last year that I believed he could be a good fit for a relegation battling team. Good. Now he'll stop commenting on Spurs twice a month.

    If true (and i have never seen or read any evidence just the BS made up on here) then anyone who did undermine AVB was in my opinion doing a mighty fine job.

    Self inflicted wound old chap, only to be expected though.

    They were two separate points, but I'm guessing you can't cope with two different thoughts at the same time. It's usually a good idea to have some context when you discuss subjects: cherry picking just makes you look like an idiot. Nothing new there.
  14. Sweetsman
    I think this just sums you up.
  15. Gaz_Gammon
    Villa looked to up their game today, and i think they should pull there way out of danger. Sherwood should have enough talent there to do a half decent job. Leicester on the other hand .........

    Huge risk by Villa IMO. They are complete kak at the moment and doubt they have much squad depth. Guess we'll wait and see but Sherwood's brashness could make things much worse if he goes at it like a bull in a china shop.
  17. mawspurs
    In Villa's case Tim will turn them into an attacking team, whereas Lambert had them playing totally defensive football.

    I think he will keep them up.

    I didn't miss the point - I made a joke about it. Looks like you missed the point.

    You're forgetting that Arsenal went on a storming run at the end of the season. So did we, in a way. Just not quite storming enough.

    Sherwood out! Then Poch out (for not winning as many games as Sherwood)! Then the next man out! And so on.

    Arsenal always go on a storming run, because they dick around long enough to know how the CL tastes and then strain every sinew to get back in. Never mind that they have imaginary cups which they award themselves for finishing a few points above a club that they think are leagues beneath them; and that must hurt.
    Pochettino and Sherwood share one thing in common: both have gone to clubs with a fine seam of young players who can be bent to their will. I don't think that money had as much to do with TS's choice as what time he would have to develop the team. Poch knew about the likes of Kane and Mason, which was why he put them in at the earliest opportunity.
