This latest admission from one of Tottenham’s most expensive summer signings might lead many fans to think that Juande Ramos is not the man to steer Spurs away from trouble. The Spaniard has now been at the helm at White Hart Lane for over a year, yet it still seems he’s having difficulty instructing his players where to position themselves.
David Bentley is no wall flower, as he’s demonstrated once again with these quotes in the Daily Telegraph. It’s difficult to imagine Sir Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger being undermined in such a way, perhaps because their teams don’t run around like headless chickens in the first place! While the winger claims that Spurs are now getting their act together, why has it taken them so long?
“It’s been shocking, it’s been a bit ****,” said Bentley to talkSPORT magazine. “It’s been a difficult start, especially for me. I wasn’t enjoying it.
“It’s been difficult out on the pitch. We’ve not been together, we didn’t know where people were running, what people were doing. But I think we’re slowly starting to get settled and people are becoming more confident.”
What a frank admission to make, especially while your team are still in the mire. Do Tottenham fans think that Bentley is bang out of order to make such comments, or is he just telling it as it is? While it’s clear that the ex-Blackburn winger is a class act on his day, is he the sort of player you want in your team when it’s backs against the wall?
