Woodgate: We are in a relegation battle

Friday, October 24, 2008

Tottenham defender Jonathan Woodgate claims his side are worse than his former club Leeds, who were infamously relegated from the Premier League in 2004.

Spurs were beaten again last night as they went down 2-0 at Udinese in the UEFA Cup.

Woodgate told BBC: "We have got to start learning quickly.

"Some people need a telling-off to get in shape. At the moment we are just not doing it.

"We are in a relegation battle — one million per cent — 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."

Woody left Leeds for Newcastle before they dropped out of the top flight but he witnessed the former Champions League semi-finalists crash through the divisions.

He added: "People say you are too good to go down — you are never too good to go down. I have seen it before at Leeds and they had a better team than we have got right now.

"We are bottom of the league and it can’t get much worse than that."

Tottenham rooted to the bottom of the Premier League and yet to collect a win.

They will face Bolton, Arsenal and Liverpool in the next nine days.
