Jaunde Ramos reckons Tottenham Hotspur can still finish fourth
Amazingly Tottenham Hospur's coach, Juande Ramos and probably most of their fans, are still eyeing a top four finish this season, thinking that after selling their two best strikers they can rival the likes of Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal. With a scintillating start seeing a return of just one point so far this term, it’s not particularly likely they’ll even be challenging for mid-table mediocrity.
The Spurs manager reckons that, even after losing at home to Aston Villa to compound their worst start to the season getting up top is still a reality. We’ve only played four games, it’s only just begun,” said the Spanish gaffer; hopefully singing it a bit like that Carpenters song.
In his eyes, it was Villa’s first goal that made everything difficult for the team. More likely though it was the second goal that squirmed in and made it so Villa had scored more goals, and therefore won, that made life for the North London club a bit harder. That and the strawhouse-in-a-hurricane defence.
“There is still room for us there.” Said Ramos to The Telegraph, scrabbling for some kind of excuse. “We had very little time to prepare – (Vedran) Corluka, (Roman) Pavlyuchenko and (Fraizer) Campbell are new to the club and haven’t really had time.” Before running off up a rainbow and jumping onto a pig cruising by. Probably.
