So I sit here today and after watching the game at the weekend and the city thumping and I’m starting to think that Sherwood is out of his depth, why do I think this? Well Spurs sack AVB and then appoint Sherwood and he plays a variation of a 442 and spurs go and win games, then boom he plays 451 and they lose to arsenal then boom again 451 and they lose to City. And yet again a variation of 442 and they draw at Hull.
Now don’t get me wrong he started impressively and then showed his weakness against Arsenal he went back to what he knows to what he has worked under because this is what he thought would win, instead of sticking to his guns and playing his way he went back to the AVB way and to me this showed his weakness. I was hoping he learnt from this and then came City and he did the same thing, why is it Sherwood can’t see spurs do not have the players to play 451?, and I’m sorry they have a creative spark in Erikson and a work horse in Dembele and a battler in Sandro but yet they can’t accommodate all three and yet they play Bentalab who is young inexperienced and is he premier league ready, I don’t think so.
Spurs need a manager who can play attacking flowing football and yet they have a defensive minded manager in charge that can’t see the players he has in front of him are the opposite of him.
Now don’t get me wrong I hear you all saying you can’t do better well no I may not be able to but I would certainly figure out what formation and what team would allow me to play to the strength of the players and that’s where Laudrup comes into it, as a attacking minded manager he knows how to play with the players he has and knows what his strengths and weaknesses are, he has proven managerial experience and premier league experience and that for me is the deciding factor over Sherwood, Sherwood needs league 1 or championship experience first it has happened with past players of the current game Roy Keane, Paul Ince and others.
It seems to be the norm with players from the premier league and I feel it’s going to be the same for Sherwood, so where do Spurs go from here get Laudrup at all cost young attacking minded and for me I am very excited to see where he goes in his management career goes.
So Spurs get Laudrup and say thank you to Sherwood for babysitting the team but it’s time to get a real manager.
