Reaction To Draw With WBA From Tim Sherwood, Players And Fans

Tim Sherwood was left frustrated after Tottenham’s draw with West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane in his first game since being appointed as the permanent manager at White Hart Lane.

After the game Sherwood commented to BBC Sport on the team’s display saying,

We had a lot of possession, and kept delivering balls into their box but they defended well and we give them credit for that. On another day it might have fallen for us in certain areas and it would have been easier for us.

Sherwood is expecting to see an improvement in the team but admits it’s been difficult in the last fortnight with games coming so quickly which has given less time for preparation and trying to get new ideas across to the players.

Speaking to @SpursOfficial, Sherwood was disappointed that Albion equalised so soon after the goal from Christian Eriksen. He said,

West Brom came here to do a job and they did it well. The shame is that we scored a goal, a fantastic free-kick from Christian, but before we drew breath they equalised.

Nabil Bentaleb who made his home debut as a second half substitute commented to @SpursOfficial,

I feel good but at the same time I feel a bit disappointed because we didn’t get the three points. We tried as hard as we could, we gave everything but it was just not going right for us. We played positively.


On a positive note from @Cmonuspours on Twitter, who commented,

Just watched replay of the game and the 2 standout performers were rose and walker! Lamela and bentaleb did ok when they came on.

Less positive was the comment from @Yoss3r
