Jonathan Woodgate insists the Tottenham players are right behind under-pressure head coach Juande Ramos.

Spurs have just two points from eight games and are bottom of the Barclays Premier League table - it is their worst-ever start to a league campaign and Woodgate believes the players should take the responsibility.

The England defender said: "He is still the manager and hopefully he will continue to be. We will stick by the manager no matter what. We've played well at times, but this season we haven't cut it. The buck stops with the players."

He added: "We're bottom of the Premiership and it's not nice at all. We're hurting inside but we have to stand up and get ourselves out of this mess that we've got ourselves into."

A newly-formed fans group have planned a mass protest for Tottenham's next home game against Bolton on Sunday, calling on chairman Daniel Levy to resign.

Ramos himself admitted Tottenham's situation was "terrible" after Stoke's 2-1 win on Sunday condemned his side to their sixth defeat in eight games.

To make matters worse, Gareth Bale and Michael Dawson will be suspended after picking up red cards.

Ramos said: "I am worried about the situation. At the moment it is terrible. Last season we won the Carling Cup and everyone was very happy.

"At this moment everyone is very sad and I am worried about it as I don't like this situation.

"We need to work very hard to change this situation and only hard work can change it. This is my job and I am working very hard each day to finish this situation."
