Ramos wants Tottenham to win with 'panache'

Juande Ramos' opening match at Tottenham ended in a stuttering victory over Blackpool - but the new head coach wants to win with 'panache' when they have turned the corner.

Goals from Robbie Keane and Pascal Chimbonda earned a 2-0 win and a place in the Carling Cup quarter-finals last night, ensuring Ramos got off to a winning start at White Hart Lane.

However, it was hardly a convincing performance against Championship opposition and Ramos has demanded improvement throughout his team, after which he will impose his own style on the side.

'Tottenham people desire a distinctive style of football and winning alone is not enough,' he wrote in his first programme notes. 'It must be achieved with a certain panache.

'This is one of the fundamental reasons why I chose to come here because this is also something I desire from my team.'

The first task for Ramos is getting out of the bottom three of the Premier League by beating Middlesbrough at the weekend.

Ramos saw enough against Blackpool to encourage him but his defenders were nervous and prone to panic when the visitors put the ball in the penalty area.

'The team has to improve in all areas, attack and defence, but this is a squad of great professionals,' Ramos said. 'I hope that the team improves quickly but, with so many competitions going on at the same time, it's a tough call.'

Blackpool made the early running and David Fox hit the side-netting when he was sent through following mistake by Younes Kaboul.

Keane opened the scoring in the 18th minute - it was a route-one goal but his delicate finish had 'panache' about it. The Republic of Ireland striker had scored the first goal under Martin Jol and repeated the trick following the Dutchman's departure and Ramos' appointment.

Blackpool stayed in the game and rattled Spurs after the break, Gary Taylor-Fletcher hitting the crossbar with a header then forcing a stunning save from Paul Robinson.

'That was the difference,' said Blackpool boss Simon Grayson. 'We had opportunities to get in front or back into the game, but we couldn't take them.

'We gave a good account of ourselves, but they took their chances and we didn't.'

Chimbonda sealed the win with a header from Steed Malbranque's corner just before the hour mark, giving Ramos time to look at his substitutes.

Kaboul was subbed after his series of mistakes, while Dimitar Berbatov looked his usual moody self when he was taken off. Keane got a standing ovation and embraced the new manager.

'The most important thing here was the victory, the result,' said Ramos. 'With this result, we can look forward to the next round.

'On the positive side,the team showed great willing to play this evening. They fought very hard, physically very hard, as the victory just three days after their last game.

'On the negative side, the opportunities they gave to Blackpool.'
