What do you make of Ramos’ Spurs excuse – that his boys need time to gel?

Posted by

The Daily Mail reports that Juande Ramos, after having successfully steered Tottenham to what is now their third successive craptastic start to a season, has come up with a whopper of a lie excuse.

Tottenham boss Ramos claims that Spurs’ grotty start is down to the fact that his players need time to gel. And when a plucky journo asked himhow long this gelling process would take place, Juande replied:

‘I don’t know. I hope not a long time. Vedran Corluka, Fraizer Campbell and Roman Pavlyuchenko only arrived at the end of the window, so they have not trained a lot.

‘There have been big changes so it’s normal to take time. Hopefully we will get good performances soon. The fans, myself, the club – we want the best performances quickly, but we need to be patient.’ (Daily Mail)

Ramos’ excuse is a pretty valid one, when you look at the influx of new players, as well as the list of departures – which went on right until midnight of the transfer window. However, it starts to look a tad flimsy when you look at the quality that has been signed – players like David Bentley, Giovani Dos Santos and Luca Modric – does needing time to gel really excuse the fact that Spurs are rock bottom of the Premier League?
