After Tottenham’s draw at Hull City, Tim Sherwood’s reaction and thoughts on the game didn’t receive the full support of fans, many of whom were disappointed with both the result and the team’s display.
Speaking to BBC Sport in his post-mtch interview, Tim Sherwood said,
I thought we played well. We had some good opportunities in the second half. We never took the chances and the positive to me is that we ground it out. If we are not going to win the game we are certainly not going to lose.
Trying to take a positive view of the result, he gave credit to the Hull team who worked hard and were totally committed, the manager said,
We thought we should have won the game but you have to give Hull credit, they are fighting for their lives and they dug it out.
When speaking to the club’s @SpursOfficial site, Sherwood expressed disappointment that the team hadn’t won. He said,
We’re disappointed because we thought we’d come here and win….Hull have beaten some good teams here. They have spirit and can cause you problems, but I thought we deserved to win the game.
Taking the view, that one point is better than none, come the end of the season, it might be important.
Tim; "I didn’t think at any point that we would lose this game and you never know, it could be an important point at the end of the season."

The reaction of fans on Twitter was less understanding. Jon Gilbert tweeted:
My only hope with #Spurs now is that some of our top players stick around for next season cus this one is done. Absolute farce

Ben Pearce, the Spurs reporter for the Ham&High and Hackney Gazette newspapers and Tottenham Journal website commented after the game
#thfc were on top after equalising but Hull had better chances towards the end. Why wasn't Soldado subbed? Does Sherwood trust Kane or not?

Where Does The Problem Lie at Spurs?
@MinnesotaHotspurs has his view.
The problem isn't Sherwood. Nor was it AVB. Or Redknapp. And Van Gaal won't be the problem or the solution. The problem is Levy and Lewis.
