Tottenham Hotspur appoint Tim Sherwood

Tim SherwoodHe may only have had two games in caretaker charge but Tim Sherwood has done enough to impress Daniel Levy and land the Tottenham Hotspur job on a permanent basis. The former technical co-ordinator has been handed a deal as Head Coach up until the end of the 2014/15 season after beating off competition from ex-Spurs boss Glenn Hoddle who had been backed by many to make a return to White Hart Lane.

It’s certainly a bold move by Tottenham to put their faith in a man who has no managerial experience, although he has previously worked as a coach of their Under-21s side, and knows the club inside out. Sherwood will be tasked with leading the north London outfit to a top-4 finish come the end of the season. Spurs are currently in 7th, four points away from 4th placed Chelsea, and six adrift of league leaders Liverpool. They can be backed at 4/1 with most bookmakers to finish in a prized Champions League place, while they are 80/1 outsiders to win the league.

In his first game as caretaker manager Sherwood suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to West Ham in the Capital One Cup, however he bounced back with an electric 3-2 victory at Southampton, with the 44-year-old braised for his attack minded tactics. His first match as full-time boss will be at home to managerless West Brom on Boxing Day, followed by Stoke at the same venue three days later, before a blockbuster match away to Man Utd on New Year’s Day.
