Tim Sherwood: Watched the entire defeat at Liverpool from the stands

Sherwood has preferred to watch matches from the stands in recent weeks following his spat with Benfica coach Jorge Jesus last month, prompting the travelling support to chant "where is our manager?" during last weekend's 4-0 Premier League defeat at Liverpool.

The former midfielder has confirmed he will be back on the touchline for the Monday Night Football clash with Sunderland, although he has defended his decision to watch from up high.

"I'll be on the touchline on Monday - I'll be knocking out as many people as I can," he said.

"I've had a lot of time to prepare this week. If they don't know what it's all about this week, then they ain't going to know.

"When you're playing against Liverpool and teams like that, I feel there was a technical mismatch between the two teams.

"We have to try to worry about them and they might need some adjusting during the game - they certainly did after 20 minutes.

"There was nothing we could do to turn it around, unfortunately.

"I can learn more about my players sitting up top for the future than going down there to the touchline.

"I would've had to have no effect on that game. Against teams we've got left to play, the players know the script now.

"We will play the same way between now and the end of the season and it's up to them to try to entertain.

"I'll be there at the forefront with them and hopefully we can get a positive result together."

Watch Tottenham take on Sunderland at White Hart Lane live on Sky Sports 1HD from 7pm on Monday.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
