If we believe some reports in the media, Tim Sherwood could be sacked today.
Of course this could once again be rubbish and Levy might for all we know, might be very happy to see Tim carry on, but that seems less and less likely with every day that passes. I imagine that Sherwood himself will want to know his position quickly, as there are plenty of potential vacancies he might want to be considered for, such as WBA, Norwich and Brighton. Saying that, would be be shocked for levy to sit tight in the hope that he can gain some compensation from a suitor, despite knowing he wants to replace Tim anyway.
Though I like Sherwood and feel he has done a very decent job in very difficult circumstances, I feel that Levy will be looking to take the easy, and who knows the best option in replacing an unpopular manager for one that will excite the fans and hopefully appease the dressing room. If the pressure is on Sherwood and Levy now, what would happen if we start next season slowly? At that point, it will also be much harder and no doubt expensive to recruit a top quality manager and Levy really can`t afford another compromise and ultimate failure.
With the season over and Ledley King having a great send off, it is believed that Sherwood and Levy will have a little chat and I`m sure a frank exchange will take place. Though Sherwood might have perhaps over emphasised issues in pre and post match comments, I actually think he was spot on in the vast majority of his words and for that he should have been applauded instead of being crucified by so many. I can imagine if a new and big named man had replaced AVB and said the same things, we would have all claimed he was right and blamed the players, but the reality is that too many people don`t like Tim.
Whether we will quickly see Pochettino get the nod and to be fair he has handled the speculation very well, and does seem ready to walk regardless, as his position hasn`t seemed quite so certain since the departure of Nicola Cortese in January. Will Frank De Boar finally decide the timing is right to leave the comfort of Ajax and test himself in a tougher league or will the much talked of love of all things English be a reason why Rafa Benitez leaves Napoli?
Though Levy has made some pretty big calls in hiring and firing managers, could this one be the one that puts most pressure on his own position? Though the likes of Harry Redknapp had done well, there were reasons for the parting of the ways. This time, you feel that Levy took and punt on backing Sherwood and to remove him after five months, is a call that for me will define his time as Chairman at Tottenham Hotspur...
