Anyone dare venture a guess as to when they will have more points than a triangle? Will they have patience with Ramos and sort out this whole Director of Football nonsense?

Watched the game against Stoke the other day. Dawson went in high and then went crazy at the deserved Red card, Bale got sent of for an apparent foul on the last man, a coin was thrown at the linesman, so probably a few fines heading their way to boot.

Nailed to the bottom of the table. 4th place still on.....right?

Arsenal can help them get 3 points.

They are too good to be that low.

Before the season, there were a few people asking questions like "have Tottenham overtaken Arsenal in squad quality?" It wasn't too bad of a bet, but it is clear that their squad isn't as good as people made it out to be.

Modric is one of the most overrated transfers this summer and it exemplifies the flawed view that if you can play well in one big game, then you can play well in most games. Just because he eliminated a poorly organized England doesn't mean that he's a world beater.

Pavlyuchenko is somewhat of the same thing. Russia beat England and Holland, and that brought much hype but he's largely unproven outside of Russia which explains why he isn't settling.

Modric could be a sucess if he had a pair of holding midfielders behind. We have Zokora who can be handy, but then Jenas who well doesn't attack well nor go forward well (at least consistantly). But what about the **** up Comolli made with the strikers too..

As for Pavlychenko, never was sold on him. Same with Bentley.

The biggest mistake however as I've said all along was sacking Jol. I might sound like a broken tape recorder but look at what he's doing with Hamburg. Losing vd Vaart yet on top of the league!!! I mean you don't hear him crying like we are since we lost Berbatov and let us not forget, Wolfsburg, Werder, Bayern and Schalke all have stronger squads than HSV too! the man is a legend. Levy :thmbdown:

Pavlyuchenko is an ok player, but he's injured isn't he ? Waaaaaay to early to criticize him.

Apparently, finally Ramos is sacked, and the clownish football director Comolli something is a goner too. They are apparently going after Harry Redknapp.

Serves Ramos right for leaving Sevilla in the manner he did, thats karma biting him straight in the ass right there.

Pavlychenko isn't any good, Gomes looks clueless in goal, Modric isn't really built for the EPL way too physical of a league for him, Hutton is a hack, Bent isn't a good finisher.

They actually played well against Stoke but typical Spurs they find ways to lose, go down to 9 men, injure their own players and even better have two former Derby County players score against them :howler:

What a dumb club, sacking him just before a game. :wallbang: He will be a very rich man now, bet he get's a compensation package to match Mourinho.

Harry Redknapp is a good manager though.

I have no idea what's wrong with Spurs; they are obviously not as bad as the table suggest. But then again Dawson has pretty much been first choice center back this season which should raise a few eyebrows since he is completly useless.

Read that Spurs fans are not so keen on Redknapp.....

Why so, Redknapp had been doing well., and he cannot do worse.

He was a manager in his comfort zone at Porstmouth, much like Oneday at Sevilla. However 'Arry has experience at saving a team from relegation, and also at guiding a shit team into Europe. Two things the Tottenham board will appreciate.
