image for Tottenham Good Start Continues
Back to the drawing board for Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur continued their good start to the season last night, when they lost 2-1 to Aston Villa at White Hart Lane in front of 36,000 excited supporters.

Spurs stay rooted to the bottom of the Premiership in their most impressive start to a campaign for more than 50 years, thanks largely, to their manager Juande Ramos and the Spurs' board, who offloaded most of their good players in the close season.

First, Irish international, Robbie Keane was sold to Liverpool for £20million, and then Dimitar Berbatov, left for Manchester United for a lot more, swelling the Spurs' coffers to unimaginable levels.

What the White Hart Lane board didn't realise, however, is that it's always a good idea to use some of the hard-earned cash to replace the good players that have left the club, with suitable replacements - something that is becoming all too apparent of late, with a string of crap performances.

A question that is on Tottenham fans' lips, is:

"Why doesn't anyone want to stay at Spurs?"

Nobody knows, and although David Bentley has come into the side, it's not made an awful lot of difference to their results.

Another chance of an embarrassing defeat comes this Sunday afternoon with the visit of Wigan Athletic. The Lancashire club will be doing their utmost to ensure that Spurs' encouraging start to the season continues.
