Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy failed to mention manager Tim Sherwood in his season farewell for yesterday's win over Aston Villa.

Levy admits it's been a disappointing campaign.

Writing on Tottenham's website, Levy said: "The new signings in the summer had the effect of raising expectations and we all started the season with high hopes, yet the players undoubtedly needed time to adapt to a new league."

In his only reference to the club's management problems, Levy wrote: "We were also forced to make managerial changes, which is far from ideal mid-season."
