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.
It’s €4.5 million. We know Spurs paid Ramos roughly £1.7 million when they fired him in October. And they’re still making payments to Sevilla for the right to sign him in the first place. Reckless, over-hasty action and failure seem be a profitable industry when they occur in the vicinity of Juande Ramos.
