Tim Sherwood inspires musical tribute from Aston Villa fan

New, comments

Well this is going to be stuck in my head all day.

We all know that Tim Sherwood is at least a little bit crazy. But thanks to his blunt honesty (and, oh yeah, two wins over West Bromwich Albion last week) Villa fans are embracing him with all of the love that we can muster. But I don't think any of us have anything on a fan whose YouTube account says his name is Neville Edmead.

You see, Neville has taken the immortal musical stylings of Carole King and turned them into a paean to Tactics Tim. I'm not sure if you're ready for this (heavens knows I wasn't), but I am about to change your life for the better:

I wasn't really buying in until he reached the line that said "Winter, Spring, Summer, or Paul..." But when I heard that I gave my heart over to this beautiful song because that is an absolutely magnificent turn of phrase.

And Neville, if you're reading this and taking requests, may I humbly suggest another tune from the King canon?

(Sung to the tune of "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow")

Tonight we sleep, so sweetly
You gave us wins, completely
Tonight, the light, of the Cup is in your eyes
That's why we love you... Tim Sherrrrrwooood

That one's on me. Drop your best Tim Sherwood lyrics in the comments. And so help me god if any of you make fun of Neville, I will ban you instantly. Goodness, can you imagine a song about Paul Lambert like this? I love the Tim Sherwood era.
