Spurs & QPR fans react on Twitter to rumours Tim Sherwood will replace Harry Redknapp

Tim Sherwood Press Conference Smiling 12/02/2014

Tottenham Hotspur fans poked fun, while Queens Park Rangers supporters provided mixed opinions...

Reports that Tim Sherwood will replace Harry Redknapp at QPR seem to be gaining more and more momentum.

The London Evening Standard were the latest news outlet to suggest that the former Tottenham boss is in the running to take over the Rs earlier today and, though it does not seem an inevitable outcome just yet, the appointment looks a possibility at the very least.

Sherwood only spent a few months at Spurs last season but is said to be keen to return to management. And QPR owner Tony Fernandes is said to be keen on the 45-year-old - should Redknapp be shown the door at Loftus Road.

Reports seem to come to a general consensus at the moment that the current Rs boss is safe... for now.

As soon as the club hierarchy lose patience in the 67-year-old, however, Sherwood is said to be the favourite to take over from him, especially as his ally Les Ferdinand has recently been appointed as Head of Football Operations.

So how have fans taken to the news?

Well, for QPR supporters, it's a mixed bag. On Twitter in the hours after the Standard's report, most fans were displeased with the news, although some expressed their support for Sherwood.

Tottenham supporters, though, simply could not resisting taking a dig. Out of the two sets of fans, they are perhaps more experienced when it comes to the delights of Tim Sherwood...
