Armless Fun: Tim Sherwood Gets Stroppy With BBC Reporter After Mistaking His Coat For A Gilet

Last night saw the inaugural “Adebayor Salute Derby” between Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa and Chris Ramsey’s QPR, with the two sides playing out a thoroughly entertaining 3-3 draw which nobody thought to televise for some reason or other.

As well as a Christian Benteke hat-trick and a couple of tidy finishes from Matty Phillips and Charlie Austin, the game’s main highlight was Sherwood reprising his famous gilet-hurling shtick from his Tottenham days after Villa’s first equaliser…


Only, those who were watching closely may have noticed that it wasn’t actually a gilet Sherwood threw to the floor, as one BBC journalist found out to their peril during his post-match press conference.

You can see where the confusion lay, with the contrasting arms on the puffa-style jacket giving it the look of the gilet – not that Sherwood was about to forgive the error.

When the reporter asked Sherwood why he threw his ‘gilet’ to the ground, the Villa coach bluntly responded: “It’s not a gilet, it’s a coat. They sold out of gilets.”

Rookie mistake.

    If ever the phrase “captain bellend, reporting for duty” was sonononymous with an image, it’s that Adebayor salute. It’s like an eclipse – painful to look at, but you can’t look away…

    Sherwood is a smug twat.

    Just noticed he’s wearing an identical coat underneath.
    Did he don a 2nd jacket just to do his coat chucking, look how passionate I am partypiece?
    What a cunt

    outer coat is padded jacket-type-thing, coat underneath is tracky-top.
