'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Tim Sherwood.

In writing this I do hope that I'm not misinterpreted. Tim Sherwood has been in charge of first team duties for just under 4 months. It's his first ever role as Head coach and it's for a major PL football club. He is relatively young and of course, inexperienced.

In my opinion, I see Tim as arrogant, hot-headed, naive, and a just a little misguided. He is certainly no shrinking violet nor is he media savvy. In true gung-ho fashion he has said many controversial things that he should probably have either kept to himself or in-house. He does however seem to express himself openly, honestly and, with a fire and passion in his belly. (This I like). In his own words, he 'shoots from the hip'.

So far, his words, speaking voice, body language and perceived public persona, (even his general dress sense and appearance), have divided opinion amongst Spurs fans and media commentators alike. Personally, I'm not overly concerned about this. Are you? Likewise his team selections, formations and tactics have been hotly disputed. They are unpredictable and quirky, if not bold and brave. Is that foolhardy or clever? I'm undecided.

During his short time in charge of THFC, the team has played some good football and some bad football. We've won matches, lost some and drawn a couple. However, apart from losing to Norwich, there have been no real surprises. I expect more of the same. Now, I could go on to dissect and analyse his media comments and personality traits. I could also present some stats for us to mull over. I could speculate on whether he has, or has not got the players ears, eyes and respect on his side. But for now, I'll leave that for others on VS to debate.

What I will do is give my full support to him and the team. (Not blindly and not without my own form of critique). After all, he's not perfect. (He is also not the enemy). For as long as TS is in charge of our not-so-glorious-at-the-moment football club, I will give him the benefit of my doubt, wave play on and wish him, the players, THFC and it's supporters the very best of luck. Here's to all of you and to the rest of the season. One life, one love, one Spurs.
