Tottenham are having one of their best seasons in living memory, but that doesn’t stop forums and message boards weighing up his successor when things get hairy. ‘He’s taken us as far as he can‘ was the cry.
But events have taken a twist even the Harry Out mob couldn’t have anticipated.
Amid revelations of ill health and tax improprieties a contingency plan has come to light.
Some critics have complained over Harry’s lack of emotion pitch side. The reality is that Joe Jordan has stepped in to take on the screaming and shouting. Harry, 63, has admitted to taking pills for his heart and on the pressures he faces at The Lane he said,
‘After a game I cannot sleep, there is too much going on in my head as I go over moves, think about game plans, think about which player has had a good or bad game – and it’s worse if you lose. I can’t have a drink to relax as the most that passes my lips is the occasional glass of red and with three games sometimes played in a week, is it any wonder some can crack under the pressure of 21st-century football.’
In relation to his much documented tax problems, it is highly unlikely that the Tottenham gaffer will get more than a stiff fine, but the Police have gone beserk on this case, always hoping to uncover more than they were actually finding.
The strategy that has been leaked to us is that, ‘should it be required at any stage’, Tim Sherwood is ready to be the man to takeover.
My prediction is that this would produce a universal groan from the Lilywhite faithful. Once the ‘Jose Mourinho’ fantasy is ignored, the appointment of Sherwood would quite possibly be greeted with hostility.
He lacks the warmth of personality and the character of Sir Les Ferdinand -plus- many will recall how he rarely spoke in glowing terms of Tottenham in his short lived career as a pundit on Setanta.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
