According to The Daily Mirror, Norwich City are keen on Spurs’ boss, Tim Sherwood as their new manager.

Sherwood of course, played for City 71 times between 1989-1992 and scored 10 goals before departing for Kenny Dalglish’s Blackburn Rovers project for £500k.

He captained Rovers’ 1995 Premier League title winning side before moving to Spurs and then later finishing his playing career at Portsmouth and Coventry. Sherwood returned to White Hart Lane as a coach in 2008 under Harry Redknapp and built a solid reputation as boss of the youth team – not unlike Neil Adams.

He has been very publicly told by Spurs’ Chairman Daniel Levy that he will be replaced as manager at the club for next season, a role he took on when Levy sacked AVB in December.

The link to City is an obvious one and he has done well enough at Spurs, showing that he is quite prepared to drop established players and try youth instead, if he feels it necessary.

The Mirror report that even if they are relegated, he would consider taking over at Carrow Road, should City choose not to appoint Neil Adams.

At the moment, Adams is doing a decent job of being City manager and should he achieve the miracle of keeping us up, it would seem harsh to replace him and not give him the chance.

As David McNally said in that first press conference, the decision about the manager’s job is in Neil Adams’ hands.
