Ramos wins another cup, and Tottenham’s first trophy in nine years

                  

WEMBLEY, England: Juande Ramos arrived at Tottenham as the cup final specialist, and it’s taken him only four months to prove he can do it in England as well as in Spain.

Tottenham rallied to beat Chelsea 2-1 Sunday in extra time in the League Cup final, giving Spurs their first trophy in nine years.

Now Ramos, who won two straight UEFA Cup titles at Sevilla, will immediately turn his focus to winning a third in Europe’s No. 2 competition.

“To come in after a few months and win a trophy is an incredible achievement,” Tottenham striker Robbie Keane said. “He’s given us the belief that we can win every game and you can see that in our performances since he took over.”

With Tottenham faltering under Martin Jol, Ramos was lured from Sevilla, where he also won the Copa del Rey, the Spanish Super Cup and the European Super Cup. 

“It’s always a tremendous satisfaction to win a trophy,” Ramos said. “This one maybe has a special flavor to it because it was against a team that was superior to us. Perhaps it makes it taste better.

Javier Bardem’s  menacing portrayal of psychotic killer ANTON CHIGURH in NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN earned the actor his first Oscar on Sunday night (24th February 2008). The Spanish movie star was a red-hot favourite to win the Best Supporting Actor prize. Bardem delivered half his acceptance speech in his native Spanish tongue for the benefit of his actress mother, who accompanied him to the 80th Academy Awards. The award was Bardem’s first Oscar, but he was previously nominated for his portrayal of poet/artist Reinaldo Arenas in 2000 movie Before Night Falls.
