In his post-match reaction Tim Sherwood had praise for his Tottenham team on their win at Newcastle and for the travelling supporters.

Tim Sherwood was pleased with the result and the way the team started the match against Newcastle. Tottenham have been very slow to get into their game in recent matches allowing the opposition early domination. Sherwood commented to @SpursOfficial,

It was a great performance. We’ve been critical in recent weeks about the way we’ve started games but not this time. We came out firing. As soon as the whistle went, we were off. We really set the right tone.

The manager made mention of a number of players who stood out last night at St. James’ Park although all deserved credit for their part in the success. Emmanuel Adebayor who scored another two goals received special mention from the manager.

Ade’s done brilliantly again, they all have. It’s hard to single anyone out after a win like that. They were excellent.

He was pleased with the return of Younes Kaboul to the team having played so little first team football due to injuries in the last eighteen months. The manager acknowledged the importance of Kaboul to the team.

Younes’ return is massive for us.

Speaking to BBC Sport in his post-match interview, the manager had praise for goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

I’m a perfectionist. There was a spell at start of the second half when Hugo had to pull off some saves.

    I’m beginning to warm to Tim Sherwood as Spurs manager. He’s on an extended audition until the end of the season, and hopefully Spurs will judge him on merit at that stage.

      He’s certainly got the results so far and there was a responsive from players last night to show that they could start more positively.

      It’s always felt that it was a short-term appointment but Sherwood is doing his best to show that it should go beyond the summer.
