Harry Redknapp gets points right away for ass kissing Daniel Levy, on whose feet this whole mess should be placed.
Lets see what Redknapp can do with a dysfunctional team which seems to be busier with its own infighting than on playing well.
On the other hand, you have to feel for Juande Ramos, who probably wishes that he never had given in to Levy's pursuit. He was a successful manager at Sevilla with an indisputable track record for nurturing young talent.
Some crucial mistakes were made. One of them was Berbatov's departure which was shockingly mishandled given that he had telegraphed his intentions the previous season, mainly by Comolli but one also by Ramos who could have been more forceful in these personnel decisions. The other one was the more public cultivation of Gus Poyet as the team's mouthpiece which unfortunately sidelined the low key Ramos. His training decisions have also been questioned. But this leaves the impression that Ramos was ill prepared for the back breaking expectations that Spurs had placed on him with their bust the bank acquisitions.
One positive from all this is that Levy has essentially closed the two tier system at Spurs and given Redknapp carte blanche on player transfers. It has proven disastrous to the club and I am glad to see it go.
