...can there be a better epitaph for Roy Hdosgon than his own words. The coward that is ex England manager Roy Hodgson finally turned up to be asked questions and was most put out by the fact, didn't they know he'd run away to prevent such things?
...didn't have it's leading man. Unfortunately old Tim didn't seem to be there to see one of his former clubs, Spurs, do over another of his former clubs, Aston Villa, must have been to busy watching gooner DVDs, his beloved club.
...this season? In losing to an Aston Villa side “managed” by Tim Sherwood, Spurs managed to out Spurs themselves in providing the new standard for inept performances this season.
...he deserves. Emmanuel Adebayor has been hawked all over the world since he signed with Spurs, unfortunately another transfer window has passed without his removal from the club.
...mercies. After Spurs' last few outings a point away to the South London scum of ARSEnal shouldn't be sniffed at.
...overlord. Finally after 163 days Tottenham Hotspur actually have a manager. Mauricio Roberto Pochettino Trossero.
...Steve Bruce. He had one chance at redemption but he blew it, while others blow up his ego talking about what a great job he and his team did. No they didn't.
...departure of Tim Sherwood. The worst kept secret in football - this week - finally played out as Daniel Levy admitted he'd made another mistake that thankfully had a get out clause.
...the rest of the deadwood with you. The end of this abortion of a season couldn't come quick enough once Levy decided to Sherwood it. The final match against Aston Villa pretty much summed up Timmy's, thankfully, short period in charge.
...follow. No doubt Timmy's phone will be ringing off the hook after his teams dismal capitulation to dismal opposition as for the third time this season Spurs lost to West Ham.
...bestest in the whole world. An unremittingly awful game of football from some, clogging thuggery from others, fitting last on Match of the Day, highlighting everything wrong about both Spurs and Stoke.
...coming. There's no better team to be three goals down to than West Brom, as the Baggies dug Timmy out of yet another grave by throwing away a three goal lead to draw three all.
...he'll do enough of that for himself. Six and half years after Martin Jol led his Spurs side out and learnt his time was at an end, Timmy had the same experience, though the whole thing was far more enjoyable.
...Levy saw it. Does he still believe in Tim Sherwood? Can anyone really after that gutless 4-0 capitulation to Liverpool at Anfield?
...was losing it. The media are heaping praise on English Tim because Spurs came from behind in a 3-2 victory over Southampton, obviously missing the point it would mean he was at fault for them being behind, and outplayed in the first place.
