Villa boss enters Allardyce debate

Tim Sherwood is the favourite for the Aston Villa jobAston Villa boss Tim Sherwood has chosen to enter the Sam Allardyce managerial debate and clearly has a high reputation of the 60 year old.

Speaking ahead of the weekend clash of the speculation swirling around the  against us, the Villa boss said: “It’s up to them to make that decision but there’ll be no shortage of takers for Sam Allardyce.

“We’re up against a manager who is the second longest serving manager in the Premier League. He has kept West Ham in the top half for many years and we have to respect the fact they have good players.

“They are combative but they also have a lot of quality players, they have pace and if we take care of our jobs we should be okay.

“We know West Ham score more headed goals than any other team in the league because they get it wide and cross it.

“There’s nothing wrong with that, that’s what we do for Christian Benteke and that’s why he’s starting to score.”

  2. Since when has Allardyce ‘kept West Ham in the top half for many years’.Bit more homework needed i thinkTimothy before you join the managerial love-in each week 😉

  3. It’s wonderful so many managers have kind words for Sam… He’s the second longest manager in PL, he improved West Ham, bla bla bla… It’s just strange that nobody in the big teams cares about him… Really strange…


  4. It’s because with new owners coming and BFS coming from the area he see,s him as a threat,
    And if he is comparing his teams style of play with BFS he wants s to get a new play book,
    Tim just worry about your job and fans we will worry about BFS ,
    Tim you could write a short article for wetpants.com or are you one of them already

  5. sherwood is a troll and i like him as a manager 😀
