Spurs Balls: The Daily Mail’s Tim Sherwood Fanclub Loses Its Way
THE Daily Mail’s Neil Ashton was no fan of Andre Villas-Boas, picking holes in the soon-to-be-sacked Spurs manager.
But things at White Hart Lane improved when AVB was dismissed and trust Englander Tim Sherwood was appointed manager.
On December 19, Ashton wrote in the Daily Mail:
“To fund their ambitious project, Joe Lewis, the club’s principle owner, is relying on the riches from regular Champions League football. All they need is a manager to guide them there. Step forward, Tim Sherwood.
Managing Spurs is a doddle. Sure, it was a task beyond AVB, but Tim would do it. Tim as Ashton told us, was a “man’s man”.
But Tim has managed to be a rattier version of AVB. And on March 17, Neil Ashton wrote in the Daily Mail:
“This is a great club, an iconic feature of English football and yet it feels like we are about to speak of Tottenham in the past tense… these are not Sherwood’s players, they may not even be the choice of Andre Villas-Boas, but someone has to take responsibility for squandering £110million on purchases last summer.”
Are those the same waste-of-money players who only needed a guiding hand three months ago? We think they are…
