Spurs Balls: Useless Adebayor And Weak Pochettino Make One Man Dream Of ‘Man’s Man’ Tim Sherwood

SPURS Balls: The Daily Mail’s Neil Ashton has been talking about Adebayor:

November 5, 2014:

At White Hart Lane on Sunday, Mauricio Pochettino has to make the biggest decision of his short career as head coach of Tottenham: Emmanuel Adebayor cannot play. The striker’s lack of commitment at Villa Park last Sunday, when he was dragged off after 58 minutes, was not just an affront to his team-mates, it was an insult to the sport itself. For Pochettino to make his mark at Spurs, to show the players that he really is the boss, Adebayor cannot be in that team to face Stoke City.

Spurs Balls: Hoddle, Sherwood And De Boer Miss Out As Louis van Gaal Gets Manger’s Job (Say Experts)

WHO will be the next manager at Tottenham Hotspur? The current incumbent is Tim Sherwood. He feels unsettled:

“Every Press conference I do it’s ‘this manager’s coming in… Van Gaal, then Hoddle, this one and that one. Some of these managers are actually touting themselves for my job and I don’t think that’s right. If anyone asks me about another job I just tell them they’ve got a manager. Until they haven’t got a manager and I haven’t got a job, say nothing.”

Anyone think Sherwood will retire gracefully back  to his former job as reserve team coach?

Let’s review what the experts said:

Gary Lineker: “I think they’ll probably finish above Arsenal. Well, the interesting thing is that normally clubs… if they sell a huge player, they always say, oh, we’ll spend the money, we’ll put it back in the team but they invariably don’t, whereas at least you can say for Spurs they’ve had a plan and they’ve spent that money – and they’ve spent it actually before they got it really – so I think actually they’ve bought pretty well on the whole.”
