Fresh off their fantastic victory in the Carling Cup, Tottenham striker Frazier Campbell was heard singing the praises once again of the club’s new manager. He believes Harry Redknapp’s magic at the club has made he and his team-mates feel invincible at times. I’m sure supporters are happy to hear that!
The scorers against Rafael Benitez’s men were strikers Campbell and Roman Pavlyuchenko, who have been in the shadows recently while Darren Bent has been firing Spurs away from the relegation zone.
“Heads were down and he came in and stroked their egos a bit,” Campbell said. “Everyone has responded brilliantly to it.”
Redknapp admittedly has been helped by what he describes as the tightest campaign in recent history – the Spurs manager feels 14 teams are candidates for a relegation battle.
It could now work in Spurs’ favour as Redknapp’s players are playing with no fear.
“Once you have won one game, you believe in yourself and we go out there and feel like we are invincible sometimes,” Campbell said.
“We are beating teams quite comfortably. The new manager has put confidence into all the players. Every player has got the confidence in themselves and the belief that we are better than where we are in the league (16th). It is going really well.” (The Independent)
The good times just keep coming for Tottenham at the moment. Their disposal of Liverpool in the Carling Cup was their second victory over the Anfield outfit in as many weeks. After stuttering out of the gate, Spurs have been averaging over two goals per match since Redknapp took his place on the sidelines. Indeed, the fireworks that were expected at the beginning of the season look to be back and better than ever.
So how far do Tottenham supporters expect this team to go? Can they really continue the offensive onslaught for the rest of the season?
