Ramos remains upbeat..
Tottenham coach Juande Ramos, unlike so many of us fans, is refusing to get to downcast after our first day loss to Boro.
'Our hopes and aspirations are still very much intact. We have lost the first game but there is still a long way to go.'
'We are on the right lines. I think generally we're playing very well, our style of play is going well and we just have to hope that we keep improving as the season goes on.'
when asked about the Spurs new boys, Heurelho Gomes, Dos Santos, Luka Modric and David Bentley - Juande said: 'As a group, the new signings are on the same level as the rest of the team, they are working hard to become part of the set-up and gelling nicely with the rest of the squad.'
Clearly now is not the time to get hysterical about the season being over, a win over Sunderland next weekend and the sun will be shining again, obviously if we lose batten down the hatches....
