What a shame that it's not only the players who move solely for money purposes. I have always respected Harry Redknapp while at Portsmouth, but now I just hope Tottenham continue their poor form, get relegated with Redknapp out of a job. No doubt he'll then go back to Portsmouth and expect to be let straight in (again).

And what were Tottenham thinking by sacking Ramos? He's been their best manager over the past few years, and their poor form is solely due to the fact that they failed to bring in sufficient replacements for those who left (Keane, Defoe, Berbatov, Robinson - some of their best players).

Not unlike a certain J.Ramos who walked out on Seville for a reported 5 mill a year.

Err no. That would be Martin Jol. The bloke who is sitting a point off the top of the Bundesliga with a game in hand.

How many trophies did Jol win during his three years in charge? Yep, none. Ramos got Spurs their first piece of silverware since 1999 during his first (and only) year in charge.

The Bundesliga is weak compared to the English Premier League, so comparing success in Germany to success in England is like comparing apples and oranges.

Since the Carling cup he managed to win three league games and oversaw the worst start in Tottenham's history. Thats why he was sacked. Was he totally to blame? No. The board have to take a portion of blame. But the days of giving managers time has long gone.

Jol managed two fifth place finishes (the clubs best premiership placings) and was responsible for two of the three european qualifications, including missing out on the Champions League by a whisper. So silverware, no. A better team? as you say, Yep.

Which explains why in the last 12 years only three teams have won the EPL while five have won the Bundesliga and must also explain Germany's appalling record in international tournaments. Err sorry.....I have confused the Germans with the all powerful English  Yeah sure

How does comparing how many teams have won their respective domestic league prove anything? And what has the International teams got to do with it? I'm talking about the German and English leagues, not Internationals.

The German Bundesliga is probably the fourth strongest league in Europe, behind England, Spain and Italy. The amount of times that teams from those respective countries have won the Champions League/European Cup can also back that up (Italy, Spain and England with 11, Germany with 6).

The International team has nothing to do with it.

It was in response to your rather bizarre ascertation that Jol is only enjoying success at Hamburg due to it being a 'weak' league but Ramos was Spurs best manager of recent times because he won a Carling cup, oddly, with a team inherited from Jol with only a couple of exceptions. Carling cup aside, how do you explain Ramos' stunning successes post CC and this season?

For a start, Berbatov and Keane have left - their top scorers over the past two seasons. While Defoe was poorly used at Tottenham, he has also left and proved a success for Pompey. They simply haven't brought in any replacements - Bent has been useless since he joined from Chalton last season. Pavlyuchenko has done nothing, scoring only one goal in the League Cup before today. Gomes in goal is a disaster waiting to happen.

No, it was in response to you justifying Jol as a succesful manager for Tottenham by saying he's currently second in the Bundesliga.

Agreed. But post CC Ramos had all these departed players still there and still could not inspire the side.

The root of this discussion was your entire justification for Ramos being our best recent manager is that he won a Carling cup four months or so after inheriting Jol's team. What else can you point too? Precisely bugger all.

I can point to Jol being a successful manager for consecutive highest place finishes, the fact he created a side which banged in a 100 goals, has carried his coaching style to Germany with current success and for being the man most Spurs fans wish was still in charge.

Look, we can agree to disagree all day. I do not accept that Ramos is our best manager of recent times because he simply wasnt IMO. I believe it was Jol.

I don't know if Redknapp is the answer, but he will at least get them to play with a sense of self-respect.

I seriously doubt he moved solely for the money. Isn't it just possible that he wants the challenge of restoring the fortunes of a club with a much bigger reputation? As long as he's sure he'll be given the opportunity to do it his way, I don't blame him at all.

Well if they were working with the same team, then it only proves that Ramos was able to get the team playing better. Jol was sacked after a poor run of form, Ramos took over the same team and led them to silverware.

At the end of the day, I don't really care which manager was 'better'. I'm an Arsenal fan, so whoever was the worst Tottenham manager will always be my favourite. I'm just saying that more people remember trophies than 5th place in the League, and for that reason many will praise Ramos (or at least they did at the time).

Good luck to Harry Redknapp and to Spurs... But we all know the best team is at the top of the Premiership this weekend.... Come on The Reds!!!!!

Ok in all seriousness... I think Harry has taken on a hell of a job.. I wish him luck... Ever since I've been into football (or soccer for our US friends) Spurs have always been up there with the best... I just hope he can turn it around for the fans sake.

Well, he certainly wasn't attracted "solely by the money", was he? You might want to read the next sentence in my post for a possible clue as to why he didn't take the job. There's been a perceived problem behind the scenes at Newcastle for some time. As I said, money does not seem to be the main incentive for Harry Redknapp.

Tottenham are just a joke of a club, they've had nearly a dozen or so managers in the last 15-20 years, which has got them nowhere. All this delusional talk of breaking into the top 4 and challenging Arsenal is just fantasy. They sold one of the deadliest strike forces in England, (Berbatov, Keane, Defoe) and brought in inadequate replacements, now they're wondering where it's all gone wrong! Bring on Wednesday.

This talk of Tottenham being a top four club is a joke, never mind themselves being a joke. They have only won what, 1 trophy in the last how many years & it was the worst trophy they could possibly win. They are a middle table club & even Harry isnt going to change that.

Ramos mistake all came down to team selection and playing players such as Bentley in the completely wrong positions....You buy Giovanni and Bentley, both young talented footballers and then relegate them to the bench along with the likes of Lennon??

The problem with spurs has always lied in our defence. As was seen last year, one of the highest scoring teams in the league as well as one of the highest conceding. Now this year with Bent up front , its hopeless. It just shows in Spurs' record how much the back four really miss Ledley King. Lets hope Redknapp will turn it around.

Can't wait for Wednesday, hopefully it will be a cracker.
