Poor old Harry Redknapp, nothing ever seems to go right for him. At first, he appeared glad to have inherited a squad full of quality players, with the manager admitting he had some much at his disposal compared to Portsmouth. However, in recent weeks, he’s taken to bleating about a shortage of numbers and deficiencies within the said squad.
Now he’s having a pop at his predecessor, after his team’s penalty shoot-out defeat to Manchester United means there will be no UEFA Cup football again next season. Can’t see why he’s too bothered anyway, considering he treated the competition with a minimum of respect a week ago. The Daily Mail reports that Tottenham have shown UEFA Cup placing form under their amazing new gaffer.
‘We had a bad start to the season and had two point from eight games when I came.
‘Our form since then has been good, well over a point a game. If we’d taken that same average from the first eight games we’d be talking about having about 38 points now.
‘With 12 games to go. I’d then be thinking we had a good chance of making the UEFA Cup again next season. It’s just that we had a bad start.’
Perhaps if Juande Ramos had been given the chance to turn things around at White Hart Lane, Tottenham might actually be in the top six of the Premier League? It’s not as if the team have delivered consistently bright performances since Redders took over. What’s your view on Harry as manager of Spurs, do you think he’s done a good job?
