On Saturday – the day before Swindon Town’s biggest game of the season – he was snapped in the stands at Stamford Bridge.
On Sunday – the day of Swindon Town’s biggest game of the season – he was nowhere to be seen.
On Friday – the day before a trip to relegation rivals Bury – he was out on the golf course.
Where is Tim Sherwood now, and what is his role at our club? Does he even work for the Robins any more?
In an interview with talkSPORT on Friday morning, the director of football – not once asked about his role at Swindon – was happy to chat about Arsene Wenger, Arsenal’s struggles and Tottenham’s fans, and chummy-chummy his way through a five-minute conversation.
Later the same day, Jim White dedicated an hour to the topic without the necessary guest, and to his credit brought the bizarre state of play to the national airwaves, however even he couldn’t get Lee Power to comment – though to be fair to the chairman, he was boarding a plane and promised to return next week.
And at the end of it all, we’re none the wiser.
None the wiser as to Sherwood’s decision to watch Premier League football 24 hours before the A420 derby.
None the wiser as to his absence on matchday.
None the wiser as to what he does for Swindon Town.
We can only assume that’s the way the club wants it to be.
