The best thing about yesterday, after us bitching about Tim's shit decisions and him sitting in the stands like a twat, and two goals go in out of nowhere......

HE CAN SEE THE WHOLE PICTURE FROM UP THERE CONDUCTING US LIKE A SYMPHONY OF FOOTBALL OUR GLORIOUS LEADER

Tell me a "game plan" you want to see. Any game plan.

But please consider that half the side are in the casualty department (as key players have been for most of the season), and the current Manager has had to pick up a squad and make an effort to put a team together in just half a season.

Oh' and then name a replacement manager who would have a "game plan" in place and working like a well oiled machine given the same circumstances. There appears to be a huge disconnect on what some people realistically expect from a football manager after less than two dozen games, let alone a couple of seasons.
I'm all for giving Sherwood next year. Just at the moment I want to see a gradual style and balanced team. Don't think we've had that yet

I know we need stability but we need a manager of proven pedigree of actually winning and achieving shit there can be no more projects or gambles.
Any manager wanting to cut his teeth should do it in leagues one or two not at spurs imo.

Can't disagree with you there. Sherwood has a bad 6 months next year, we are back to the beginning again

You were very vocal in contempt for AVB and we should fire him half way through a season, so much for stability eh?


The bold bit, why loan out Holtby if injuries are that bad?
Chadli nearly got loaned as well.
So that makes Tim look a little silly considering our injuries.
Game plan i hear you say.
Playing Lennon nearly every game, however he performs is hardly helping his game plan.
You can add Bentileb to that aswell, not matter how he plays he is never subbed.
Dropping Eriksen for no good reason (norwich)?
Saying our best players arent his cup of tea, So you would rather Lennon and Townsend tearing up the wings?
If he wants to stay, he needs to be a no2 a learn his trade from someone with experience.
Not mouth off in public, do it behind closed doors if your not happy with certain individuals.

So Tim should have known that all our center backs would be injured TWO MONTHS down the line and that The Golden Child would pick up a season long back injury?

Bentaleb ( i assume that's the same player as your Bentileb) has played as well as any other midfielder that we have in an injury hit team. Oh and by the way Holtby has not started every game at Fulham so if he struggles to get into that giant of a side what chance at Spurs?

None of us know if players are carrying knocks, or in Eriksen's case are rested. You want him run into the ground and injured too i guess? Tiredness is the root cause for many injuries and not necessarily bad tackles. But you just don't get it do you?

Your rhetoric is plain daft, but to your credit you are spot on regarding my thoughts on AVB. He was given over eighty games to make an impact. After the Man Citeh debacle i did indeed look for him to be fired. By that game his time had come. But like i said that was after a season and a half and not twenty odd games.

Sherwood's honesty at press conferences is fresh and very welcoming. Levy new exactly what he was getting when he hired Sherwood, and that was a young manager who was a successful player who had actually won something big. We have had experienced managers from all over Europe who have won stuff and that have lasted as little as two months in the job, and our most successful one in our PL history who has won bugger all.

Get behind the team, it's manager and Club for Gods sake.

I think we have twenty injured players............the other three stacked up well and gave an excellent account of themselves last night.

The last thing i (or i really guess Sherwood) was expecting last night was a "balanced team". I am all for giving Sherwood next year too, so long as he has a full twenty five man squad to choose from. No team is injury free throughout the season but we just seem to be very good at keeping the physio busy at the moment.

Holtby has played most the games for Fulham and two lads I work with are season ticket holders who say he is class.
Maybe Tim should take your advice and take you Bentileb off in games he looks tired.
Injuries and all that.
Tim didn't loan out any centerbacks, so I don't understand your comment about that.
I want the best for spurs as I'm sure everyone does.
But for tim to say you don't know players and then in the next breath say they should be moved on. Really that sounds like some of the posters on here.
He's not the man to leads us in my opinion.
Like yours was on AVB.

Ask your friends how many starts Holtby has made. As for looking "class" i could look as good in that Fulham side.

Nuff said.
