Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood seems a straight forward guy, and his plan in last night’s game was to put pressure on the Newcastle players, and that pressure seemed to work as a number of Newcastle players seemed hesitant and nervous.
Tim Sherwood – his plan to press Newcastle worked
And after what was a great win for Tottenham last night this is what Tim had to say to the press:
“I impressed on the boys that we needed to press them high up the field and try to win the ball back and not let them pass the ball forward and get it to their players in advanced areas.
“They moved it back to their goalie quite often and we nicked it back from them and when we got it back from them, I just felt we could keep it from them, and that’s what we did.”
“It gets very frustrating for any crowd to see that.”
It’s got to be exciting at the moment for Spurs fans – but none of that excitement currently exists on Tyneside.
In fact we have been humiliated too many times recently, and what the Newcastle manager, coaches and players have to do is to restore the pride at Newcastle United in the nest 12 games.
That’s really job one through the end of the season, and the confidence and performances of our players has to rise significantly, and they need to all start doing their jobs, for which of course they get handsome wages.
We shouldn’t have to remind them of that.
