Tottenham head coach Juande Ramos has revealed his determination to turn the club's season around following their worst league start for 53 years.
Ramos was in the spotlight after fans turned on him during the defeat to Portsmouth at the weekend, although there was no suggestion from within the club that his position is insecure, only that they were all determined to kick-start their campaign.
"It's a situation we need to change quickly," said Ramos. "I don't like it and we have to work hard to change the situation and myself, the coaches and the players are prepared to do that."
He added: "It's only possible if we work very hard, have confidence in our ability and the team is together."
Ramos admitted morale was low on the coach home from Pompey but has told his players that it is down to them to arrest their slide.
"Only the professionals on the pitch can do it," he said.
"All the people want to help but I repeat, only the players and management can change this situation."
Spurs have won just three league games since lifting the Carling Cup in February - against West Ham who had lost 4-0 in their previous two games, against Portsmouth who were concentrating on the FA Cup final, and against Reading who eventually were relegated.
