Putting Wisla Krakow in the title took its catchy feel away but I’m also taking that game into consideration! If our slender 2-1 lead proves not to be enough and we crash out of the UEFA Cup on Thursday night, will Levy call time on the Ramos reign?
I personally think the board will give Ramos more time. If we still have two points come 5pm on the 25th October, I’d say that will certainly be his lot. In fact, I’d say he will need to get 6 points from Hull at home, Stoke away, and then Bolton at home to save himself from the axe. The problem for me is I can’t see any evidence in Tottenham’s last few games to make me think they can beat any of those 3 sides.
My other problem is Spurs then go to the Emirates, play Liverpool at the Lane and then have to travel to Manchester City!
A lot of neutrals are saying that sacking Ramos would be typical of Spurs usual knee-jerk reaction and won’t do us any favours. That is an opinion I take on board but the facts are simple. Spurs have won just three league games since the Carling Cup win last February. This from a side that are supposedly close to breaking into the top 4? At the moment I’d be happy to get out the bottom 4.
Now that The Sun and friends are using various versions of the pressures on Ramos as their lead football stories, his days look numbered.
I was going to say six months ago but even as recently as August, I don’t think anyone could have predicted the survival of Juande Ramos’ Tottenham career would come down to games against Hull, Stoke and Bolton, but that certainly looks to be the case now.
