Sherwood: I often ring Kenny

Tim Sherwood: Has sought the advice of Kenny Dalglish

The 44-year-old admits he often rings the Scot for advice, saying Dalglish was a major influence on him during his time at Blackburn Rovers during the 1990s.

Sherwood was skipper at Ewood Park in 1995 when Rovers won the Premier League under Dalglish.

And Sherwood told the Sun on Sunday: "Before I took the job, I asked him the pros and cons of going into it.

"He told me it was a complete lifestyle change because it takes up so much of your life.

"But he also gave me confidence because he felt that if anyone could do it, it would be me. He said he knew that from my mentality."

As for taking over the hot seat at White Hart Lane, Sherwood added: "My life hasn't changed outside of the training ground but mentally you never switch off from it.

"I have got used to the job, it feels like I've been here six months but you only really enjoy it when you win because otherwise you can look so far into it.

"In this job there are 36 thousand experts out there - David Moyes has more - but you have to trust what you are doing and believe in it.

"I am realistic about the job. I don't get too excited when we win or upset when we lose.

"I think I have learnt that from playing under Dalglish."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
