Unbeaten in three, have Spurs finally found their feet this season?
There is a consensus of opinion among the more pessimistic fans that Newcastle was a bad result because it’s just delayed the inevitable – Ramos’ exit. Personally I don’t agree.
Changing another manager isn’t going to help us, we need stability. Ramos hasn’t become a bad manager overnight, this is the same guy that won us our first trophy for an age last season and the man that guided us to famous victories of Chelsea and Arsenal.
My one worry with the manager is he doesn’t know his best 11. It is understandable with the new signings but the midfield looks a mess at times. Tom Huddlestone isn’t up to it for me. I’d rather have a grafter like O’Hara wearing his heart on his sleeve than Huddlestone labouring about everywhere. Ekotto’s continued selection also puzzles me. Why not have Bale at left back as we already have so many options in midfield?
The difference maker on Wednesday was the back two of King and Woodgate. I’d give anything to have King part of the side week in week out. The King/Woodgate partnership is up there with any in the Premiership, imagine how good they would be with a run of games together.
It was also great to see Pavlyuchenko get off the mark, hopefully he can kick on off the back of that and provide us with the goals that have been missing over the early part of the season.
Pompey will provide a stern test for us on Sunday but they do have a lot of players out injured, whether they will still be injured come the match is another story! I’ll be happy to come away from Fratton Park with a point.
