Tim Sherwood

    Tim Sherwood could keep his Tottenham Hotspur job by default since his potential replacement Louis van Gaal is set to be announced as the long-term successor to David Moyes at Manchester United, per Daniel Taylor at the Guardian

    While Sherwood's tactical nous at times during the season have been questionable, it will be interesting to see the progress he can make going forward. 

    He will be given a pre-season and will have a say in the summer transfer market should management persist with him. 

Danny Welbeck

    Tottenham Hotspur are looking into signing Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck, per John Drayton at the Daily Mail

    Welbeck is a handy striker who has also done shifts out wide for United. 

    However, if Spurs are going to permanently replace Roberto Soldado, it has to be with a world-class player, which Welbeck isn't. 

    Spurs' management should continue giving Harry Kane chances to see what he offers.

Christian Eriksen

    Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has spoken about a scenario where the club could lose attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen in the summer transfer window.

    "You are always fearful that someone might come and take one of your best players and Christian is certainly one," Sherwood said, per ESPN.

    "I watched him at 17 years of age at Wembley for Denmark and I rang [Spurs chairman] Daniel Levy the day after and said that he needed to sign this boy."

    If Sherwood has been following the 22-year-old for five years, why is the Danish international spending parts of games on the left wing? 

    Eriksen is a No. 10. The team must be built around him to get him more touches, which increases the possibility of him scoring and creating more goals. 

Sandro

    Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has no time for defensive midfielder Sandro.

    "Are there loads of fans saying Sandro should play? I don't know," Sherwood said, per Gerry Cox at the Telegraph.

    "I don't expect those not playing to be happy, but I expect them to be professional and work hard to get back into the squad. If they don't show me that they are not going to be in the next squad."

    In Sherwood's eyes, Sandro is lazy, not good enough for the first XI and unprofessional—a possible thinly veiled reference to him tweeting "Lol lol lol ..." in reaction to Sherwood's criticism. 

    Clearly, it has gotten personal between Sherwood and Sandro.  

    It is hard to comprehend Sherwood's decision to snub Sandro for Nacer Chadli, a left-sided attacking midfielder/deep-lying forward, who is learning the central midfield position as he plays. 

    Obviously Sandro sees the snub as a display of disrespect.

    If Sherwood is not sacked, Sandro could look to leave in the summer transfer window.
