Villa fans react on Twitter to Sherwood's management: 'Tactically better' than Pochettino

Tim Sherwood Press Conference 12/02/2014

Aston Villa fans were over the moon after beating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.

Tim Sherwood wasn't the only man delighted by Aston Villa's 1-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday.

Indeed, what seemed like every single fan was jumping for joy - and singing the praises of their manager.

Sherwood had revealed a simple secret for success after beating the north London side - the club that sacked him as its coach last season. In the end, though, it was no secret: get the ball to Christian Benteke and see what unravels.

Fortunately for Aston Villa, everything Benteke has touched recently has turned to gold. Inadvertently, that means everything Sherwood has touched has turned to gold!

On Twitter, meanwhile, Villa supporters had nothing but praise for Sherwood after the game. There were even suggestions that he is 'tactically better' than his successor at Tottenham Mauricio Pochettino.

Some Spurs fans agreed...

Many of the Aston Villa faithful, though, weren't bothered about Pochettino - but just delighted that they now have a coach willing to get their side forward and get the most out of key man Benteke. Needless to say: a far cry from Paul Lambert.

Here's what Villa fans made of a vital win in the battle against relegation from the Premier League on Twitter. A great day for Sherwood; naturally, a day to forget for Tottenham:
