Woodgate: Spurs aren't too good to go down

Tottenham Hotspur defender Jonathan Woodgate claims Juande Ramos' side are worse than the Leeds side who were infamously relegated from the Premier League.

Bottom side Spurs were beaten again tonight, this time in the UEFA Cup, as they went down 2-0 to Udinese in Italy.

With the side having collected just two points from their league programme, pressure is growing on manager Ramos and the Spurs board.

Woodgate saw at first hand the decline of Leeds from a Champions League semi-final to relegation and fears history repeating itself.

The England international told the BBC: "We have got to start learning quickly.

"A goal goes in, you think, 'Oh here we go again'. We have got to stand up.

"People say you are too good to go down - you are never too good to go down.

"I have seen it before at Leeds. We had a better team at Leeds than we have now and they went down eventually.

"We have got to really roll our sleeves up now and start grafting because it is going to be hard."

When asked if Spurs were now in a relegation battle, Woodgate added: "One million per cent. We have two points out of eight games.

"Are we good enough to get out of it? If we start playing and start concentrating, without a shadow of a doubt. But if we don't, we will go down."

Woodgate does not believe it is fair that Ramos, sporting director Damien Comolli and chairman Daniel Levy should take all the blame for the club's plight.

He has called on all players to take responsibility for the situation.

He added: "I have got to stand up like everyone has got to stand up. The senior players have got to stand up, we go on the pitch at the end of the day.

"If we are not producing the goods, pressure is going to be getting on the manager, the chairman and Damien but the players should share the blame because we are not pulling our weight on the pitch.

"We are bottom of the league and it doesn't get much worse than that. We have got to really roll our sleeves up.

"We have got to start working and give ourselves a good kick.

"Some people need an arm round them and some people need a telling off, a grilling and telling to get in shape."
