Now the Manchester United boss deems them worthy of his ‘Mind Games’ trickery.
Sir Alex Ferguson believes Tottenham are genuine top-four contenders as he prepares to take his Manchester side to White Hart Lane.
Harry Redknapp’s side have started the season with four straight wins and a string of imposing performances.
He said: “They have had a fantastic start to the season, having watched a couple of their videos they are going to be a handful for us.
“There have really started well and there is a good degree of experience in the squad and he has a bigger squad than last year so he has a terrific chance of breaking into the top four.
“They and Manchester City have had good starts and I think those two are ahead of the rest at the moment. (MSN Football)
So there you have it, proof that Harry men are indeed a force to be reckoned with. Sir Alex doesn’t use this brand of mind games on just anyone. He clearly feels, as do I, that Tottenham are very well placed to break the top four monopoly and clearly Ferguson is a little jittery ahead of his sides visit to White Hart Lane.
Harry Redknapp has put together a very able squad that has depth and a good combination of players who have a good level of experience without being over the hill. The game on the weekend promises to be a corker and it could well go some way to proving just what the north London side is capable of.
