Tottenham manager Juande Ramos remains defiant and says he has no intention of resigning, despite seeing his struggling side slip to defeat at home to Hull.
“This is my job, my work. It is the same whether we win or lose. The attitude of the players is very positive,” he said after the 1-0 loss.
“In training and working and speaking with the players my feeling is they want to finish this situation quickly.
“But when you don’t score goals it is not easy to win.”
Spurs have picked up only two points in their opening seven league matches of the season and are slumped at the foot of the Premier League table in what has been their worst start to a season since 1912.
Ramos conceded that the club’s problems stemmed on their lack of strikers following the sales of Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane.
“The position of the striker is the most weak.
“It is the decision of the club, all the people are responsible for the good and the bad.
“The players had a big effort and a good attitude and this is the way to change the situation. The best match for us this season has been against Chelsea – some things are impossible to explain.”
Meanwhile, assistant-manager Gus Poyet tried to remain upbeat and refused to attribute blame over the club’s current predicament.
He told Sky Sports News: “I never make excuses. I would like to be positive, look forward, keep working and try to turn things around.
“I don’t want to blame anyone or look back to pre-season, it’s not worth it. I just want to look forward.”
He added: “It’s difficult to call it embarrassing because the players gave everything. We can’t ask for more in terms of running and fighting and being brave and wanting the ball.
“I don’t think it was embarrassing, it’s just not working. At the beginning it was just a couple of games now we are a few more and it’s still not there so we will have to change it quickly.”
