Now he's gone, I've got to say the levels of sycophancy towards him on here was some of the most cringeworthy and embarrassing stuff I've read on this forum or any other other. "Tim aint gonna stand for X" and "Tim aint the type to Y", in some cases before he'd even let the ink dry on his contract, let alone before anyone knew the first thing about his personality or coaching ability. It's quite obvious to me that the reason he got so much love was for the simple fact he wasn't Lambert, which you could argue was fair enough. I laughed at the "Tim Sherwood team" bit, give me that over "We go again" any day. What the not so silent majority didn't seem to realise was that we, and most of the country were laughing at him, not with him. The man was a satirical masterpiece who lacked the self awareness to realise it. I remember reading an article just before he joined us where he said that Redknapp was a big influence in how he presented himself to the media. "No shit", you could be forgiven for thinking. Strip away the coaching ability, experience and tactics(and thats being generous to 'Arry), what you're left with is a polished snake oil merchant, a slick mockney gobshite who will hang anyone out to dry in order to deflect criticism from himself, even if only for a few days, even if he knows the majority of the fans will see straight though it. Because ultimately it doesn't matter what they think, as long as there's an army of hacks on standby to flood the internet with articles about young British managers and why 1 win in 8 constitutes a decent haul, as long as the Linkers of this world can keep a straight face when congratulating someone for unfucking a team sheet at half time, as long as someone like Remi Garde can be dismissed by these same sycophants on the grounds that he's French and therefore is unable to grasp the complexities of the Premier League, the chancers will thrive.
