The football world has been stunned by the drive-by
shooting of Tim Sherwood. The big Tottenham and England midfield star
has been famous this season for his headed goals, but this incident came
as a shock to all Spurs fans who were present that day. The incident
happened in broad daylight with many on-lookers passing the time of day
in the vicinity. The volley had no regard for the
safety of those
nearby. His shot was driven by Nigel Martyn and into the net. His
assistant, Steffen Freund, was lucky to escape, as a shot for him, was
wide of the target.
Underworld connections are being made to the
incident. The shooting comes amidst allegations that Sherwood was past
his best by Bryan “Bone-Breaker” Robson. It was rumoured that Robson
would not part with £4 million for Sherwood, preferring the cheaper
option of Paul “The Guv’nor” Ince.
witnesses speak of men in leather boots and the crack of foot on leather
ball as it flew like a shot into the net. “The whole thing was a bit
of a blur”, one bystander said, “it really came out of the blue.”
Rumoured to involve a gang of opposition footballers and their boss, the
Police have stated they have no Leeds to go on. When faced with this,
the Press asked “Oh, really ?”, the Police replied “No, O’Leary”.
