The Run of Play is a blog about
the wonder and terror of soccer.
We left the window open during a match in October 2007 and a strange wind blew into the room.
Now we walk the forgotten byways of football with a lonely tread, searching for the beautiful, the bewildering, the haunting, and the absurd.

Spurs fans get it. And yet I’ve read two dozen articles and blog posts about Ramos’s job security in the 24 hours since Tottenham’s loss to Stoke, and only a couple of them have paid any attention to Levy. A few more have dropped in a line or two about Comolli, while a good half actually skipped over the part where they might have mentioned either man’s name, instead asking only whether “Spurs” should fire Juande Ramos, as though a club were a concept with agency. So at the risk of sounding like 80% of all political bloggers: why doesn’t the media get it? Why is it so hard to see that the manager isn’t the whole story?
