New Tottenham manager Juande Ramos is going to fit right in at Spurs. Having taken control of the low-lying team, the Spaniard has claimed that he is going to take the club back up to “where they deserve to be”, which according to the dusty archived league records from 1961, is perched atop the league like a glorious (and somewhat delusional) cockerel.
Ramos said, through the medium of a translator (Gus Poyet?):
“I want to take it step by step. I want to get results quickly to breed confidence and then I can think about the long-term. But this is a great club and the aim is to take us to the top.”
The Spaniard was keen to point out that he won’t be frogmarching goalie Paul Robinson to the nearest Job Centre straight away, he’ll probably wait at least a week. Ramos said:
“I’ve only just landed. I need to look at the players and depth of the squad before we think about buying.”
Whilst everyone was excited by Ramos’ presence at Spurs, rumblings from Seville are as bitter and nasty as a Hollywood divorce. The Spaniards have launched a vendetta against Spurs, promising to
“make sure that Tottenham pay the consequences of this situation, a situation that they have illegitimately provoked”.
