It has been confirmed that Juande Ramos has been sacked by Spurs and Harry Redknapp has taken over!

His sacking did not surprise me at all, its been coming for a while now, but more worryingly for us was the news that we had given Redknapp permission to talk to Spurs about the vacancy and he has gone.

An English manager that can steady the ship, bring the best out of players and get them going is exactly what Spurs need and Redknapp would offer all of that and more…

He kept saying that he would not leave us again but he has – and I think that he will undo so much of the good work he has done since returning from the lot down the road by doing this… Keeping us up, getting the players that he has, winning the FA cup and getting into Europe will never be forgotten but walking away again would tarnish this and sour his time with us.

It had been confirmed that we accepted an approach for Redknapp and he would hold talks with them. To be honest for us to have announced something at such a late hour the night before a game suggests the two clubs held tentative talks about this over the past couple of days – probably why he has been so quiet since our defeat in Portugal, maybe why he did not seem that bothered by it!

This throws our plans into turmoil for Fulham and leaves me worrying about players he might take with him…

He always talks up Spurs – and teams of there stature – he has always wanted that chance at one and now has it. I do not like Spurs, but will be hoping even more that they go down! I am gutted, devastated and feel let down – I just pray he does not come back for our players in January, as if he does I feel they will go. The good times could be coming to an end guys…

So now we must find a new manager, I bet it will be Sam Allardyce – although I hope not… Ramos anyone!
