Since Tim Sherwood has taken over at Spurs they have won 5 out of 6 Premier League matches and haven’t yet lost a Premier League tie with Sherwood at the helm.
Tottenham also have the best shot conversion rate in since Sherwood took over in contrast to previously being bottom of the league based on conversion rate (Under Andre Villas-Boas)
This is down to the return of Emmanuel Adebayor who has scored 5 goals in his 6 starts in the Premier League since Sherwood recalled him as well as the technical ability of Christian Eriksen that so many people were raving about when he signed for the North London side. The Danish star has also been involved in 5 goals in his last 5 games for Tottenham (2 goals and 3 assists)
Tottenham have been very impressive in the league as of late and the partnership of Eriksen and Adebayor saw Tim Sherwood go back to a formation of 4-2-3-1 against Swansea which was a big fault of Andre Villas-Boas according to majority of Spurs supporters but it worked very well.
As this partnership is bonding I wonder where Dimitar Berbatov would fit in to the team and if he was to join Spurs would Eriksen lose his place as an attacking midfielder where he has been playing at his best lately.
There’s no doubt of Dimitar Berbatov’s quality but has his days been and gone in a Tottenham shirt or is he just what Tottenham need?
Personally, I think for £1.5million (the reported fee) it is an absolute steal and well worth the risk if he can come back and complete his unfinished business at White Hart Lane by firing them into the Champions League.
