I reckon he'll get til way after the January transfer window.
Yes, Berbs did go at the 11th hour, and if Levy and Comolli had any balls about them they would have replaced him before he went beacause, let's be honest they can't be the only 2 people in the world who didn't know he was going sooner or later!
I think Ramos' selections have been shocking! Gilberto on the wing? Are you sure? Assou Ekotto - we sell Malbranque and Chimbonda but keep him?! I'd rather see Kaboul still here!
I think Lennon should be given a chance up front with either Pav or Bent, you never know he could be the next Defoe!!
I agree Big G
Comolli and Levy knew Berbs & Keane were going in the last transfer window long before it closed - Levy's statement, released 19th July, on the Spurs' website made that very clear..... so why weren't replacements brought in then?
JR's selections certainly had me puzzled yesterday. Gilberto as LM?? when Lennon had came on Weds night and improved us instantly playing on the left... Gilberto is a squad player at best - if we have adequate cover at LB then on the bench he goes. And what was this rubbish about a lone striker working mid-week... Pav was struggling with that big time and needs a strike partner - if it's not Bent then use Campbell or Gio. And why, oh why was Zokora and not JJ taken off.... he and Bentley fell foul of Capello's curse (if he's in the crowd they have a crap game) - I couldn't care less if he was the captain!
The most worrying element is JR's use of King - Leds can't play two games a week as we all know, so why use him for cup games?.... we need points ffs. Dawson's form is up and down again so why not stick Corluka next to Woody and play Gunter at RB instead?
Having said all that (I feel a bit better now) there is no way we should be thinking about sacking Ramos... if yet another new man is brought in we'll be in exactly the same position at the start of next season (new players finding their feet and the team yet to gel).... I just hope JR turns it round asap.

Lots of that make sense to me! Its never a good time to change manager but you can bet the calls to do it will get louder and louder as the season goes on unless there is significant improvement and I for one can't see how that is going to happen.
If we don't or can't change Ramos then we are in for a long old season cos we have no chance of changing Comolli or Levy unfortunately.
The players are either not good enough, out of position or demotivated. That is down to Ramos I'm afraid.
I agree that ramos,Levy etc knew that Berbs would go but to say "why were replacments not brought in" is a bit off.
Spurs tried their guts out to get a replacment and IMO, their only mistake (maybe) was to try and get a top top notch replacment for Berbs. They could have got any old Joe or Joe's in but they wanted Arshavin. You should applaud the fact that they tried to pay top money and wages for a current world star.
OK it didn't work and they lowered their sights to Pavlechenko, who is still rated and will do well for you in the long run.
All this is my humble opinion of course.
