Ramos: Future out of my hands

Tottenham head coach Juande Ramos admits he has no idea how long it will be before changes are made at White Hart Lane.

Spurs head into Sunday's home clash against Bolton bottom of the Barclays Premier League, with sporting director Damien Comolli tipped to pay the price for his poor recruitment ahead of the club's worst start to a season.

"Only the club know the situation about what will happen to people," Ramos said. "I don't know because I don't control that."

After the UEFA Cup defeat to Udinese on Thursday, Jonathan Woodgate branded his team-mates "unprofessional" and compared Spurs' plight to the situation that faced Leeds when they were in freefall.

David Bentley was left out of the 2-0 defeat in Italy - 24 hours after an outspoken assessment of Spurs' hapless start to the season.

To make matters worse, Ramos has injury problems and will make late checks on Woodgate (groin), Vedran Corluka (head) and Roman Pavlyuchenko (ankle) before facing Bolton, while Ledley King played against Udinese so his knee is unlikely to recover in time.

Gareth Bale and Michael Dawson are suspended, so Ramos is expected to be short in defence.

Woodgate has blamed a lack of concentration for Spurs' slide.

"It's unprofessional, isn't it, if you can't concentrate? I'm not singling out anyone. It's every one of us," he said.

"You should always give 100% when you play, and at the moment we're not doing it."
