Sherwood gives fans good news: Spurs will ATTACK!

Tottenham WHL

The newly named Tottenham manager has stated that he will look for his side to play in an offensive way and look to score goals.

Tottenham’s season so far has been through its fair share of ups and downs, with one of the negative issues for the White Hart Lane faithful the lack of goals the team has been scoring.

The north London side have only netted 18 times in 17 games, with the club’s fans disappointed as they are used to watching a scintillating brand of attacking football.

However, with Tim Sherwood appointed as permanent manager this week, more goals and a more offensive outlook may well be on the cards.

Ahead of Tottenham’s game against West Brom today, Sherwood has admitted that he wants his side to play attacking football.

"I think with the calibre of the players we have at Tottenham we shouldn't have a dull game," he said.

"As long as they are playing in their correct areas of the field and allowed to express themselves, that's what I would say.

"I always maintain that when you come into a football club there are very few that give you a script saying: 'You need to play like this.' Swansea are a good example.

“Someone who goes in there cannot rip up their philosophy and say: 'I'm going to play back to front.' It's not going to happen. In an ideal world everyone wants to build an identity for their football club and say: 'Tottenham, I know are going to play like that.' Well at the moment we don't."

Tottenham scored three goals for the first time in the Premier League this season in their last game – a 3-2 win over Southampton at St Mary’s.

Sherwood also seems to be ready to revert to 4-4-2, fielding two strikers instead of the lone frontman used by Andre Villas-Boas.
