The Sunday People run a story that Juande Ramos is homesick and wants to quit Spurs barely a year since he arrived.  His family of wife and three children have failed to settle in the country and the manager is said to have had trouble mastering the language and has not taken to the food or the weather here.  The story also claims that some players are unhappy about their role in the side, namely David Bentley and the club are not too impressed about the start to the season and Ramos' lack of action in identifying a replacement for the now departed Dimitar Berbatov.  It also mentions that the money spent on Roman Pavlyuchenko and Heurelho Gomes is being questioned, as the club do not believe it has spent that amount of money that wisely.  There appear to be no direct comments from anyone in the article though.  The Spurs Head Coach later denied this in his post match interview.
  
On a more positive note, they still think Ramos will be in charge in January as they claim he will return to Sevilla, but only to sign Diego Capel, the 21 year old winger, who has not signed a new deal at the Spanish club and has hinted he might still want to move to the Premier League.  The fee might be 12 million.

   Sporting Director Damien Comolli's future is being considered as chairman Daniel Levy takes a break on his yacht during the international break, the Daily Mail reports.  The man whose job it is to bring players in was given a list of those who interested Juande Ramos, with Sergio Garcia being his prime target.  While it looked like he was certain to sign early on Monday, he ended up signing for Real Betis from Real Zaragoza and Comolli had to switch his attention to other forwards, including Emile Heskey as the need to bring in a striker became more pressing.  Reading's Kevin Doyle was the next in line and Comolli was given a brusque "No" because Steve Coppell had stated he refused to sell any players on deadline day.  This left Daniel Levy, who had gone to Manchester to oversee the Dimitar Berbatov transfer, hurriedly arranging with Manchester United to take Fraizer Campbell on loan for a season as cover, but with no prospect of buying him when the loan spell is up.

   Forty minutes after the transfer window closed, Manchester United signed Dimitar Berbatov for a club record 30.75 million and Spurs also got young striker Fraizer Campbell on loan for the rest of the season thrown in.  As part of the deal, Tottenham agreed to withdraw their complaint about United's pursuit of the Spurs striker for over a year.
   It appears that relationships between Spurs and Manchester United deteriorated even further before the completion of the deal, with Alex Ferguson driving the player to the club medical despite not being given permission by Spurs to speak to him
.  The Premier League were supposedly called in to try and resolve the matter.
   Reports indicate that a deal to bring Andrei Arshavin to White Hart Lane might be resurrected in the January
transfer window and with time to replace him, Zenit St. Petersburg might be more willing to do business, especially if Tottenham can pay the fee in one lump.  By that time, he will be well UEFA Cup tied after representing Zenit in the Champions League.
