Sherwood “Townsend is our new Bale ” must now pick him.

Posted on February 08, 2014 by Random Spurs Supporter

Tim Sherwood has been very vocal about the return to fitness of Andros Townsend and rightly talks up his impressive form and just how much of a difference he might make to the performance of the team, Townsend has been nothing short of sensational for Tottenham and England this season and only needs more goals to really secure his status as one of the stars of the season.

In quotes published by the Express, the Spurs boss said:-

 “Andros can do something different. He can go past people, turn a bad performance into a fantastic result like Gareth Bale did last year.”

He also said:-

“He’s in the squad so we’re hoping that he’ll be in and around selection,” Sherwood said.

“He’s done enough training now for us to be confident that he can be dropped back into the squad. He’s looked magnificent.

“The results don’t suggest that he has (been missed), but I think whenever you’ve got a player like Andros, he can change a game in an instant.

Now considering that Sherwood considers that Townsend is the closest Tottenham have to another Gareth Bale and that he offers the same sort of quality, you would automatically think that he will be the first name on tomorrow’s teamsheet, would any coach seriously leave Bale on the bench if fit!

Sherwoods words would obviously have the effect of boosting the confidence levels of a youngster who burst onto the scene only a few short months ago and who will be busting a gut to play games and ensure his place on the plane to Brazil, but Townsend is not a player that actually lacks confidence and so Sherwoods comments must surely suggest that he will be chosen to play as nobody in their right mind would leave such an explosively important player on the bench, there are players who make a difference only from the bench but Townsend is not one of them, he causes problems from the off and keeps on going.

Tim Sherwood has built Townsend up as a key element of the team and that means he must now play him.
