I think we have seen Juande Ramos’ last game in charge of Tottenham Hotspur. With Martin Jol at the helm Spurs were in much healthier shape, back to back 5th place finishes and a side that looked like they could play football together, but that wasn’t good enough. Under Ramos, Spurs have managed just 2 points from the last 24 in the Premier League. What is keeping Wendy in charge other than Levy not wanting to look like a mug for courting him in the first place?
Forget the excuses, forget Berba and Keane. The players at the club are the players Ramos wanted. He made the decision to make so many changes to the squad in the summer and with the money he had at his disposal, a return of 2pts is a joke.
I’m not judging the man on 7 games, I’m judging him from the moment we won the Carling Cup. Week in, week out, players were not pulling their weight but he just coasted along and did nothing to give them a wake up call. Fine, he shipped out the players he felt weren’t up to it during the close season, but if you replace them with others that have no heart and no fight, the end result is the position in which we now find ourselves. People like Tainio and Malbranque may not get you top 4, but they certainly show enough passion and fight not to get you relegated.
Comolli needs strung up for his part in this mess but I’ve wanted rid of him for I don’t know how long now. He has proven his treachery, ignorance and lack of talent know no bounds.
Juande, go quietly back to Spain, we have no real bad feeling towards you. You delivered our first trophy for years but basically you just aren’t up to managing in the Premier League. Your English isn’t up to it, you’re tactically not up to it and I just don’t feel the players have any confidence or belief in you anymore.
Who do we get? To be honest I don’t really know. Someone that has a good grasp of English would do me at the moment. We need a manager to come in and give the players an instant confidence boost and win a few games so we don’t get to February/March time with the threat of relegation hanging over us.
The team in it’s current form do not look like winning a game full stop. We can’t create chances, therefore no goals are being scored. There are just 11 individuals running around like headless chickens and picking up an average of 40k a week for it.
I’m sure there are still a few fans saying give him a bit more time, the last thing we need is yet another new manager. The problem is we don’t have time. It is imperative we keep our Premier League status and under Ramos that just isn’t going to happen.
