Vacancy filled vs Vacancy Applied for! West Brom are still on their managerial merry go round, so whilst Keith Downing awaits his fate and tries to breathe life back into Nicolas Anelka, "Gooner" Sherwood has got his 18 month contract and resuscitated Adebayor!
And as our merry men go off to play in Sherwood Forest please remember we steal from the rich but we also don`t give to the poor, so no more home defeats please!
Harry may not be back in charge but his protégé is and so is 4-4-2!!! Yee ha! No more worrying about how the opposition is going to play and making dirty great dossiers on each and every player we have to face let`s just go out there and play some football the Spurs way.
As far as the team is concerned we look like the Christmas Turkey, a bird with no wings! Lennon abdominal injury and Townsend out for some time. Dembele should be fit as is Sandro and Rose is good. At the back Vertonghen and Kaboul are all in the treatment room. Paulinho is still suspended. However, we do have our secret weapon, our 19 year old French defender Nabil Bentaleb !!! Oh yes! Where did that particular rabbit get pulled from?
Against Saints Eriksen looked better, Lamela put in a shift and Soldado actually looks like he might have a buddy to play up front with! We were a mess in midfield in the first half against Southampton, it was like watching a game of table football for a while, but Sherwood, Freund, Ramsey and Ferdinand obviously roasted a few chestnuts by the open fire at half time! As they say in managerial circles: hold the player by the balls and their hearts and minds will soon follow!
When the boys step out at WHL on Thursday we want to see the ball and the players going full belt at the opposition. Downing has West Ham coming up next and so his squad will be camped in London for Christmas and stretched, so every player will be important to them hence the wish for Downing to get Anelka ready. Matej Vydra finally got on the score sheet against Hull and must be in contention for a start as Anichebe is probably out so Anelka maybe feeling a bit like Adebayor, isolated rather than "disrespected". West Brom talisman Zoltan Gera may be back after a long term layoff and he will bring some leadership to the West Brom team, who are flirting with the bottom 3 but whose goal difference is the same as ours!
In Sherwood we enter a different and more unpredictable era. He has 18 months, which is a season longer than any of us thought especially as he has admitted to being a Gooner before the job interview.....nice one Tim you muppet! 18 Months is about as long as you get nowadays when taking charge of Spurs! Some say Sherwood does not have the pedigree to be a Prem Manager, and the fact that Blackburn were making enquiries for him to be their next manager may not exactly be a ringing endorsement. But one thing you can say about our Tim is he has done the hard yards and he will have the respect of his players because he has played for our club and our country.
So here we go again! A win against WBA and Stoke and we are back in the hunt. Let`s hope that Sherwood does not become Deadwood for the sake of our club, we deserve better than this constant managerial merry- go- round.
Daniel, I know you read Vital Spurs! All we are asking for is a bit of consistency, some continuity and some success. Stop sacking our managers and selling our best players!
