TIM OUT NOW!

TIM OUT NOW!

The time has come for Daniel Levy to stop playing games with our club, and to stop the rot and unsettling damage that Tim Sherwood is inflicting on our squad.

From my perspective, I can see that the majority of fans want Tim's tenure ended, and fast. Manchester United have acted swiftly in removing David Moyes from the helm, and will need to act even quicker to appoint an new manager to appease the NY Stock Market. Their share price has already taken a hit, but with a swift announcement of a new top class Manager, and a potential war chest of £150m + to spend on rebuilding the squad, they will come back stronger. It may take them a season to restructure and get back to challenging, but they will do it right this time!

We don't need to restructure our squad, we only need a couple of tweaks and to clear some dead wood, but we do need a top class manager to take us to the next level with the quality we have. We have a great chance to jump the gun over Man U and begin our own race to challenge for the prizes we all want.

We are, however in danger of losing a chunk of our quality players due to the mis-management that has been going on this season, and public ridiculing of our players.

The time is NOW to act. Remove Tim, put Stefan Freund in charge for the last three games, and announce our new manager. We cannot afford to wait until the middle of May, or God forbid, after the World Cup. We Do not want to enter a dog fight with the likes of City, Arsenal, United etc for the cream of Management. We will end up only marginally better off than we are now, with a much less quality on the field.

No more time wasting, no more games. Remove Tim, appoint a world class manager, and communicate to the fans and the world as quickly as possible..as in Now.

I hope you're right Dublin. Unfortunately I don't think Levy sees it the same way as us though. I fully expect to still be waiting for an announcement in July (assuming we get one at all!). No good to us but it tends to be the 'Levy way'.

Hopefully there is an announcement once the season ends one way or another. We need to know what is happening, the club said they will assess things at the end of the season so lets see what they mean.

I agree, if Tim isn't the manager next year, then I really hope that Levy is already sounding out his replacement. I don't see him getting rid of Tim till the season is over though, as I'm pretty sure our next manager is currently employed elsewhere - I have about as much of an idea who the next man is as any of you, just, there aren't many decent managers unemployed right now. The reason I think we'll wait is, that whoever the next man is, if he's at a job right now, then is he really going to want to sign for another club with a few games of the season remaining? He'll more than likely want to finish his season. As I said, I have no idea who we're moving for, but I have a real suspicion that Levy is eyeing up Pochettino.....

But who is the world class manager that would take the Spurs job on?

Its a bit of a tough job as the fan expectations are very high and the patience of the board is very low. At best the club can achieve a top 5 or 6 finish (being honest) and yet the one manager who exceeded that you fired.

All top managers will be waiting to see if they can either get the Man U role or if the Man U appointment frees up another good job. Yes Spurs have a very good squad with some really good players in it but the squad as a whole is pretty unbalanced and with the possibility of some of the bigger names leaving during the summer (Lloris, Vert, Sandro and Paul would be the ones I would fear for) it's quite likely going to be another summer of transition.

If you lot are going to build a new stadium, then you need to appoint a manager who can manage the club for the next 5+ years to get you thru the stadium build.

And all this talk about winning the league needs to stop, it doesn't help anyone and only raises the pressure on the players.

How many times have we been on here and said we do not need whole sale changes but get a few quality players in and cut the deadwood. Yet years after year our new players have not been up too it. I think we are some way off it now. Need at least a left back, a centre back or two if Verts goes, a centre forward or two, a back up keeper and that is providing we keep our better players. I think we could do with better wingers too.

"We have a great chance to jump the gun over Man U and begin our own race to challenge for the prizes we all want." What the hell does that actually mean ? What do you believe a new manager will actually achieve ? spell it out. Manchester United have 2.5 times our income. Comparisons are meaningless. why is this so hard to understand ?

"No more time wasting, no more games. Remove Tim, appoint a world class manager, and communicate to the fans and the world as quickly as possible..as in Now." Deluded. Which world class manager? Would you have put Brendan Rogers as "World Class" 12 months ago? Of course not. But he'll still manage Liverpool to the title. With potentially 2 or 3 at most "world class" players. I'm not saying that Sherwood should stay. Not at all. But stop this "We must get a world class...." nonsense. But of course there is another factor at work on here also. If you go into any work place and see someone promoted and then be totally berated before he has even sat in the seat like Tim was then how would that person perform. All the garbage about Gooner Tim, Barrow Boy etc. At least Man U gave Moyes a fighting chance. You lot never gave Tim ANY chance at all. But then when you live in fantasy league which MOST (not all) of you do then fantasy is all you deserve. I'm out of here once and for all. I'll carry on supporting The Club and if DL is still chairman and ENIC still own the club then so be it. Here is the best link for 90% 0f you. fantasy.premierleague.com/‎

The only thing getting rid of him now would achieve is giving us the unenviable tag of being a club that sacked 2 managers before the season is even through and making it tougher to win our remaining games. I can't say I'm overly enthused by TS but there's just no benefit in getting rid of him before the seasons out when the vast majority of potential replacements are still in a job. What's more fans will end up putting pressure on the club to announce a new manager straight away when waiting just a few extra weeks will increase the choice.

Appreciate your frustration Dublin but I can't see Levy making any announcement any time soon. Regarding the "world class" manager debate, well LVG is close to that description and if Utd move in a different direction he may still come. If that happens, then the jods of the world will see that winning football teams are not all about corporate revenue, important as that can be. If not then I am sure Levy will string it out until it's too late to move in the transfer market (other than maybe selling a prize asset or two) probably appoint/continue with the cheapest option whatever their qualifications. I think maccaspur was very condescending in his comments but there is an underlying truth in what he says in that we have won one milk cup in the past 14 years, had only one fairly successful manager who Levy sacked after achieving the Holy Grail of CL qualification and have been playing poor football ever since, so what right do we have to expect any class manager or player to want to join the Levy real-estate development corporation masquerading as THFC? Money and unemployment are the only drivers in our search for excellence because our Board have no idea about the qualities of non-headline making managers, unlike David Dein when he was at Arsenal and spotted Wenger.

The positive for us is that Im expecting United to be very proactive and look to tie up a replacement for Moyes in quick time, even if he isn't in place or made official before the start of the season. You imagine all their main targets are currently in work and because of that might not be available or certainly in positions where it can be made public, but f for example they want LVG, you at least expect Spurs to be aware and therefore know they are out of the running

Please don't fire Tim now. There's every chance that he can keep us up and we'll once again have PL football to look forward to next season. I know it's been tough, struggling at the bottom and it's been emotional, but we can do it. Have faith brothers and sisters. Only 3 matches to go. Avoid relegation Tim and the fans will love you.

The benefit of removing Sherwood and announcing his successor as soon as possible has obvious and urgent benefits. For a kick-off, despite towing the line publicly, it's blindingly obvious that a number of players simply don't want him as their manager. Now, I'm no advocate for player power. But if we indulge Tim any longer than necessary then he could, by virtue of his own ego and stubbornness, be responsible for dismantling what could next season be a very highly competitive squad. Don't get me wrong, there are a few very highly paid players at our club that I wouldn't shed any tears over at their departures. But when you hear serious rumblings about Lloris, Sandro, and God forbid Eriksen having their heads turned then you can only imagine that a sharp and impressive managerial appointment would have a positive effect on any players getting itchy feet. I'm just keeping everything crossed that this happens sooner rather than later. Come on you beautiful Spurs!!!

Dublin Hotspur, Thanks for the article It's clear your hearts in the right place! But you are missing the point. The title of the article should read 'ENIC OUT NOW'. Let me explain... Joe Lewis is the vast majority share holder of ENIC, therefore he is the vast majority share holder of THFC. He owns both ENIC and THFC! He made the personal decision to employ a share holder of the ENIC corporation as his THFC chairman, Daniel Levy. The chairman he employed on a 2.5 million quid yearly salary has the worst trophy per season percentage of any THFC chairman since World War Two. Levy has failed to reach a single FA Cup or European final in 14 attempts. He has failed dismally on the stadium issue as well causing the club great embarrassment with the pathetic manner in which he handled and LOST the bid for the Olympic Stadium. And as we approach ENIC season 15 he has still not even raised the finance to build the new stadium. Levy has got himself through 9 coaches, 3 DOF's and a new technical director (same thing) who offered his resignation earlier in the season. His treatment of AVB, Harry, Ramos, Jol etc etc was disgraceful! And now his new coach, coach number 9 was employed not based on technical merit, he was employed as head coach of THFC as a desperate cheap attempt at saving his own arse after the appalling manner he treated AVB... I cant stand DIM, he makes me cringe every time he opens his big mouth. But DIM is only here because LOSER LEVY choose him, appointed him. Levy had other quick options in Stephan Freund and Hoddle, but he choose his DIM!!! Levy wants you to demand 'Tim Out Now', because it let's him off the hook yet again! And you are giving Levy the backing the support to be the one to choose, and employ, and then BACK STAB his next Tottenham head coach! Surely you can see cycle??? I mean it's only been 14 season, 9 coaches, and 4 DOF's... "Sherwood is only the symptom, ENIC are the disease!" ENIC OUT NOW!!!

It's only a game of football !!!!

PJcoys1882, You are incorrect when you tell us we are now in a stronger League Position than when AVB was here! When AVB was sacked by LOSER Levy Tottenham were 5 points below the top 4 and 8 points from the top of the table. We are currently 7 points from the top 4 and now 17 points from the top of the table! Lets not forget that when LOSER Levy fired AVB we were still in the League cup, going very strong in the Europa League and were yet to play in the FA Cup. Sherwood got us knocked out of all 3 Cup comps almost in an instant! The appointment of DIM has been a disaster! ENIC OUT!!!

It seems to me the closer levy gets to the champions league the less you lot want to support spurs. Spurs will never I REPEAT never leap from where we are to champions and permenant top for while you dicks keep following wherever the Medea want to lead you.

Maybe Daniel should have a good look at himself. After failing with numerous managerial appointments, he couldn't even get the interim appointment right. I do agree that Tim should go ASAP but can we really rely on Levy to make the right choice as next manager. I wonder if he had a plan B after Van Gaal, because for me, he was never going to take the job. I suspect not and because of this I can see Moyes being to only option left to him. Heaven help us!

Tims appointment has been a disaster on and off the pitch, but why sack him now with three games to go ? who would we blame if we don't play well ? anyway I doubt very much that Tim would go quietly, imagine how much ***** he could stir up about the club and the players who got him sacked. unfortunately the damage has been done and there is of course the very real possibility that some of our best players don't want to play for or believe in a club who would hire such an imbecile in the first place. again the damage has been done so why bother closing the gate after the horse has bolted. ride out the rest of the season with some integrity and dignity then sack him at the end of season.

I think it depends what expectations were set with Tim when Levy moved him into that role. Part of me thinks that Tim took one for the team all along by knowing he would be interim and allowing the press to focus on him rather than what else is happening at THFC. That has allowed Levy and Baldini to do proper planning for next season.

To move forward, I do think we will need to relieve Tim, Parks, Ferdinand, Freund etc from their roles at the club. Perhaps the new manager can leverage King and Friedel instead to keep the Spurs connections but they need to have their own men. What I don't think is a good idea is to fire any of them this week. The days I would consider are the final of the champs league or FA Cup Final day. That gives us 3-4 weeks to finish the recruitment process.

Lets just concentrate on Sherwood the manager, his PL record is played 19 W11 D3 L5, GF36 GA28 Points 36, win % 58%, not a bad record. Should we be judging him solely on his record rather than what he says or does? I look at that record and I cannot remember many performances to shout out about, we have gone behind many times but have also won, our performances against the better teams have not been good enough. His interviews do annoy me but don't others, from what I can see more fans want him out than him to stay. Sherwood is praising himself quite well by himself, doesn't need us to do it for him.

Does anyone really believe that a new manager (whoever he is) is going to deliver top four, let alone the title ... and the other teams are blissfully going to roll over for us. No manager, AVB, TS, or anyone else, could do that with our team at the moment. It's going to take a couple of seasons, at least ... and our supporters are far from patient people. I would like to think otherwise, but common sense dictates not. As I've said before, it's about a lot more than just a manager. Just have t sit back and make the most of he ride. It is going to be interesting and I'm sure there will be lots to complain and argue about along the way. There might even be a few things to enjoy! COYS

Man On, of course results count, at the end of the day it is a results business. My main concern is our performances don't match against Sherwood's points record. Is that a reason enough to change managers, I don't know but I have got to the point where my frustrations are taken out on him but should really be at Levy who fired AVB for having a similar record. I just feel that it will be too much of a risk to give him next season to judge properly. It is not an easy job but does not mean Sherwood cant be criticised, I want him to reel it in a bit with his talking which I feel has got the fans in a fuss.

When people can't enjoy 5-1 and 3-1 results, then something is wrong with their perception of Spurs and football in general.

jod. how is getting similar number of points as harry and AVB a disaster ? well look what happened to them. and anyway when exactly did Tim get a similar number of points as either of those two ? I don't recall Tim managing for a full season. look at the points per game all you like but the longer he's there the worse it gets. yes he got off to a decent start as often happens with a new manager, ironically it was easier with all those injuries the team literally picked itself and the results were promising. bringing back Ade was a good call. but just like ade, Sherwood doesn't have a full season in him and what weve got now is in my opinion a disaster. same points as harry, your kidding, have a closer look at the club and the debacle that tim has created, I don't believe that given a full season tim could achieve anything close to 70 points but of course we could always blame it on all of our top players who will leave the club at the end of the season.

Jod - I'm not suggesting that players could or should dictate who manages their club. What I'm suggesting is that players can and do have an increasingly massive say in who they choose to (continue to) play for. And if the length of Sherwoods tenure influences some of our better players to look elsewhere to their futures then I would rather it be ended as soon as appropriate than prolonged. I'm by no means one of the completely anti-Tim brigade. I think there are actually some easily over-looked positives that have come from his time in charge. And if his only legacy is that he has made a few of our under-achievers take a long hard look at themselves then it could be argued that it was a worthwhile if ultimately doomed 6 months. All I'm saying is that if it's a foregone conclusion that his days are numbered, that we are (or at least could be) jeopardising the possibility of keeping our better players by not having a replacement ready who would (or could) have the effect of making those same players realise that the grass might not be greener elsewhere. Come on you beautiful Spurs!!!

As far as actual points on the board and results I think TS has done better than was expected TBH. There was very little chance of him stepping in and guiding the team to 4th considering half of them are still adapting etc. That being said, I do want a new manager to be appointed in May. There is no point in removing Tim before the end of the season, and to be honest it would be a bit harsh

The reason I want a new manager is because of Tim’s “off field” attitude and personality. It just doesn’t command the respect that a young team like spurs need to have. I think he is far too concerned about how he looks in the morning papers than what actually happened on the pitch. Sacking him / demoting him now would be completely pointless. 4th is gone, and if we are in the Europe league then great, if not then oh well. Sacking him would only draw even more attention to a disastrous season and give our doubters even more ammo to hurl at us

Regarding who we can actually bring in, I just sincerely hope that this has been in motion since the departure of AVB. Levy / the board could not have honestly thought TS was the long term option. Forget LVG, im sick of hearing about him now and in all fairness I never think he was our target. I don’t know how realistic this is but I would love Mancini back in the PL. I think he could get the best out of our team without ripping it apart.

part of the problem is the vitriolic chat against our managers from sections of our fans. Do you know that Sherwood actually has the best record in the premier league as a manager? When we were playing amazing football under Harry - sections of the crown wanted rid. What we actually need right now is stability and continuity....something we never see to attain. I do not think promoting the axing of Sherwood is what is needed - more support for him to keep learning on the job. I like him in interviews and the fact he plays the players trying the best in training. He is no nonsense and needs more support rather than posts like this. http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/tim-sherwood-says-he-is-the-best-manager-tottenham-have-ever-had--and-he-may-have-a-point-9246898.html

Lilywhite I agree but not having CL is a much bigger reason to leave, the problem is that when players leave for that reason (verts/lloris) many on here will choose to blame Sherwood. Other like Sandro and Paulinho need to start playing like they belong in a CL quality side before they start moping around or complaining or even questioning not being selected. Both have been far from great with both managers this season for no doubt a number of reasons, but it's not all down to Sherwood, they need to do better themselves, earn the right to complain.

as much as I'd like him to go now..it won't happen before the end of season...shame as without him it would be obvious we're in the market for a Manager without the dark cloud of Tim remaining hanging over the place...we don't even need a world class manager...might be nice to have a guy with a bit of experience perhaps even have managed at the top level and integrated players into a team before...but of course our mastermind Levy knows best when it comes to recruiting....;)

Maccaspur and Jod I totally agree with your posts.Yes most on here inhabit fantasy island. What amuses me is Sherwood seems way too chirpy for somebody who has been told he is on his bike at seasons end. I wonder what deal has been made ?

Agree that Sherwood deserves to see out the season but surely not start the next one. If you only analyse his team selection, tactics, substitutions etc then he does seem wanting - certainly not equipped to take us to the next level, also not equipped to get the best out of this squad.
If you then add his relative youthful inexperience, his inherent personality,lack of tact etc. then clearly he is not ready, at this stage of his career, to manage any PL team. Most PL managers have done the hard yards before landing the job. Sherwood is at a disadvantage ....landing the top job from relative obscurity and inexperience. Nothing personal against him but so obvious to me that he wasn't the right choice for interim manager and certainly shouldn't start as our manager next season. His time may come but it's not now.
I can understand the frustration of some supporters but not the intolerance of their frustrations by others. Hope DL realizes that he cannot keep getting these appointments wrong and that supporters pay a huge price,financially and emotionally speaking, so deserve better.

and yes the share price went UP when Manu announced the departure of a manger out of his depth....we'd do the same if we weren't taken off the market to hide our financials....

Ther is no point in signing a manager or player who thinks he is doing you a big favour by joining you. Spurs do not seem to get managerial or striker options correct. Whoever they appoint next will probobly mess up

cynicspur- very true, if they don't want and I mean have desire to work with us then you start on the back foot...I'll add that our induction process must start with a hard sell on Spurs, the brand and the opportunities....this happens after the agreement not just whilst attracting staff....

If anyone is undecided on the merit of getting Sherwood out as soon as possible just glance to the side of your screen. 41% voted Llorris MOTM against Fulham, yes, bottom of the table Fulham, at home. A fluke? No Llorris has been MOTM on many an occasion. We have some good players and they will perform and win games but whenever a plan is needed don't look at Dim he's been outwitted every time.

Ox, can we have a poll on Sandro or Sherwood, who would you want out? Somehow I don't think you will put it up. My prediction 99% Sherwood 1% Sandro.

PJcoys1882, Sorry to inform you that the team who wins the Premiership title has the most points. When AVB was fired we were only 8 points away from the top spot. Now we are 17... I want THFC to win the title and as many cup competitions as possible. Since DIM was employed we have dropped back 9 points from the top spot, 17 points away from Liverpool and out of all cup competitions... And have dropped back points wise from CL qualification. It's been a disaster and there is even worse to come, when the likes of Pauli, Sandro, Lloris, possibly even Ericksen leave, this summer. The future is very dark with LOSER Levy and ENIC... JOE LEWIS OUT!!!

Behaviour Rules - Some Initial Reaction

Various rules on what is and isn't acceptable are being rolled out this season in an attempt to reduce 'intolerable behaviour' towards match day officials. What's the initial reaction?

The ICC: Spurs vs Atletico.

So the 2nd and final game of the ICC tournament and a few changes, which may well have been based on the performance (or lack of) against Juve.

Tomorrow we play our second and final ICC game, but will the Juve game have given Pochettino food for thought?
