'Levy has to take full blame for this debacle'

Daniel Levy

Here's something sent in by a Tottenham fan.

'Sherwood was always going to be a stop-gap hiring, someone to steady the ship. However he started believing his own hype. His tactics make no sense. He switches the Tottenham midfield with every match, and would rather play a youth team product over the club's best defensive player, Sandro.

He could've called back Assou-Ekotto from his loan spell at QPR - especially as the team was short of cover at left full-back, as whoever has played left-back this season has been poor. Sherwood chose to play Vertonghen there, instead of dropping Dawson and bringing in Fryers. Mistakes like this have taken place quite regularly under the current Tottenham manager, and it will no doubt continue.

If Sherwood is relieved of his duty by the morning, no one will grumble. He has been out of his depth from the beginning. I can only guess what training is like for the Tottenham players - what experience did he have ? What experience does Ferdinand and Chris Ramsey have ? Working with the development squad ?

Ultimately, Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy has to take full blame for this debacle. Many doubted his reasoning for sacking Harry Redknapp, but Redknapp made that too easy with how poorly he behaved in courting the national team job, and a poor finish to last season gave Levy the opportunity to get rid of him.

Levy then went for Villas-Boas when he should've gone for someone with more Premier League experience, and better man-management skills - Brendan Rodgers and Roberto Martinez were available, and he passed on them. Both would have made excellent Tottenham managers'.
