Aston Villa and Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Tim Sherwood sacking

Tim Sherwood Press Conference Smiling 12/02/2014

The Aston Villa boss has been dismissed... supporters of his fomer clubs have taken to social media.

Aston Villa have parted company with Tim Sherwood and few in the footballing world are surprised.

Many are unhappy and feel the Midlands outfit need to drastically change the structure of the club - not just their coach.

But the facts are Sherwood was badly underperforming in the main two areas that are controlled only by him: team selection and tactics.

And Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur fans have had plenty to say on Twitter as a result.

Sherwood appeared the perfect young attacking manager to give Villa the kick they needed to keep them up last season. But, beyond the short term, he was never good enough. All he does is attack, he has no tactics and, in his must-win game against Swansea, Sherwood played just one central midfielder and dropped his best player in Jordan Amavi.

A selection of the mixed reaction to his sacking from Villa fans...

But supporters of Sherwood's former club Tottenham were a little more damning.

Indeed, all the 46-year-old could talk about after leaving Spurs was his 'win percentage.' And that's been thrown right back in his face by Tottenham fans on Twitter...
