Tottenham Hotspur’s downfall this season is befuddling.
On paper this summer, the team seemed stacked with a wealth of talent. But by the way the team has played so far this season, something is seriously lacking. It’s the desire to win.
Watching Spurs play, they look like a team of losers. Not by the results they achieve, but by the lack of passion and commitment they show.
The question has to be asked, could anyone do better than Juande Ramos? It’s puzzling why the team is playing so poorly with so much talent on the pitch. I’ve mentioned before on this blog that they’re missing a leader. But it’s much more than that. There seems to be something happening behind the scenes that is causing them to lose their edge, or they simply don’t understand or agree with Ramos’s tactics.
I’d like to pose the question to you: What would you do if you were in charge at Tottenham? Imagine yourself as owner Daniel Levy. Would you get rid of Juande Ramos? Why or why not? And what other changes would you make?
Share your feedback below. I’ve got some ideas of what I would change, but I’d like to give you guys the opportunity first.
On a personal and happy note, I’m less than 45 minutes away from entering the operating room with my wife to help deliver a baby boy. I’m in the hospital right now and looking forward to seeing the newest addition to the Gaffer family. It should be a wonderful day. When I get a chance later, I’ll post some pictures of the baby here. Cheers.
