Tim Sherwood is never shy to tell people what he thinks – but he should have kept his mouth shut today when he compared Tottenham‘s 3-3 comeback draw away at West Brom to Liverpool’s famous recovery against AC Milan in the Champions League in Istanbul in 2005.
Yes, he actually did do that.
After seeing Christian Eriksen belt home an injury-time leveller for his side, Spurs boss Sherwood said: “This comeback was like Liverpool’s comeback in Istanbul, fantastic.”
Four things Tim should probably remember…
1. 16th-placed West Brom aren’t quite AC Milan.
2. Your team were only losing 3-1 at half-time, not 3-0.
3. This was in the Premier League NOT the Champions League.
4. Think before you speak.
Fans of West Brom, Tottenham and Liverpool will all be laughing at Sherwood for this one.
