Tim, Frank & Mauricio?

It seems like we could be down to the final three in who gets to manage Tottenham Hotspur next season. Frank De Boar, Mauricio Pochettino and perhaps Tim Sherwood seem to be the most likely options facing Daniel Levy this summer.

There has to remain a massive question mark against Tim Sherwood, even if that is simply down to the fans not taking to him. Start the season slowly and the pressure could become unbearable and that would surely transmit to the players and the prospect of two points in two games could so easily happen again.

That isn`t a slight on Sherwood and I still can`t believe the blinkered approach from some fans, who seem determined to see him as a failure. Sure there have been too many below par performances and result blips, but when we see the hand he has been delivered, should we be surprised?

Winning the Dutch league is no guarantee of being a huge success in the Premiership. Any manager of Ajax is expected to run that league close and is it fair to suggest that their historical rivals don`t currently have that strength and depth to compete that they once did.

On a positive, his teams still play with technique and intelligence and have done quite well in the Champions league, without really hitting the high spots, however I seem to recall Celtic beating Barca and I don`t hear many calls for Lennon to get the Spurs job.

Few had heard of Pochettino prior to his taking over at Southampton and on paper he had a pretty average record in terms of the precious win percentages, but did that show Southamptions vision in appointing the right typo of manager ads opposed to the biggest name? something we should also take note of.

Worries that he struggles with the language are for me a smoke screen, as I understand he communicates just fine with the players, but simply prefers the security of speaking in his own language to the media. Would that bother any fan, just as long as he gets a decent enough win percentage.

So if these are the three in the current short list, though todays papers are speculating that Roberto Martinez is the latest name, who would be your choice?..
