Tim Sherwood's reign at Tottenham helped the club develop

Tim Sherwood was sacked by Tottenham last week and many fans have called his time at the club a complete failure.

Sherwood failed to finish in the top four and instead finished in sixth place. Much of his decision making during his tenure has come under scrutiny and rightly so. 

During his tenure, Sherwood played players in their weaker positions; Gylfi Sigurdsson as a central midfielder against Liverpool for example, when he is better as a number 10 or a wide player. He also failed to utilise holding midfielders such as Sandro in big games. The team also seemed to lack organisation. 

On the other hand, Sherwood did do some good things in his short time in charge. He got Spurs playing more attacking football and brought through some youngsters.

Sherwood gave youth a chance which may save Spurs money in the long run and create a new team of young stars.

He brought through players such as Nabil Bentaleb, Milos Veljkovic, Zeki Fryers, Harry Kane, Ryan Fredericks and Alex Pritchard who all made appearances during his time in charge.

Bentaleb made 19 appearances and had great games against Southampton, Crystal Palace - where he won the man of the match award -  and also had a positive display against Swansea. Bentaleb has made the Algeria World Cup squad and is certainly a promising player.

Kane also scored three goals in nine appearances under Sherwood and this has given Spurs a new option for the front line. Fryers has also impressed playing as a centre-back and a left-back with his pace and power and could become a future star.

Due to Sherwood's time in charge at Tottenham Hotspur, the club has been left with a group of exciting youth prospects for the future.
