Gallas and Arsenal the biggest joke of all

Gallas and Arsenal the biggest joke of all

Let’s cast our minds back a month or so. Spurs were bottom of the league, some way adrift, and didn’t look like winning another game anytime soon. Arsenal fans were having a field day and came up with a number of Tottenham jokes that just kept on coming. It’s gone all quite on that front since Harry arrived at the Lane and over the last few days the boot is well and truly on the other foot. I’m not jumping…

Bent must take his chance

Bent must take his chance

Darren Bent has a massive opportunity tonight. In normal circumstances he probably wouldn’t get a look in, but with the players that are missing and the form he has been in of late, he could well start for England tonight against Germany. Capello has reportedly spoken with Bent regarding the way he wants him to play which points to him playing at least some part. Bent is quoted as saying “He told me why he picked me and how he…

You can only endure a clown for so long

You can only endure a clown for so long

I knew it wouldn’t be long before Heurelho Gomes cost us a game under Harry and it finally happened yesterday at Craven Cottage. I’ve been fighting his corner while most people have been knocking our Brazilian keeper be you cannot defend the indefensible. His save from Jimmy Bullard’s free kick was exceptional but ultimately pointless. What good is a keeper who can pull off the spectacular if he can’t do the simple things? It would be like a striker who…

Tottenham v Liverpool – Pain Preview

Tottenham v Liverpool – Pain Preview

Spurs go into tonight’s game unbeaten under Harry Redknapp as well as having beaten Liverpool 2-1 earlier this month at White Hart Lane. This will be a quite different Liverpool side with Rafa Benitez likely to give his fringe players a game while resting his stars. Will this make things easier for Tottenham though? Possibly not… Team NewsLedley King is likely to be rested for Tottenham, who are also missing Benoit Assou-Ekotto through suspension and Giovani dos Santos through injury….

Man City – Pain Review

Man City – Pain Review

Is Harry actually God? I’ve never believed in God before but I’m starting to see the light. Since Harry Redknapp took charge. Played 5Won 4Drawn 1 (We can allow God an off day) Before he took charge I was starting to think we would never win a game ever again. Yesterday’s three points took us off the bottom of the table and although we aren’t out the woods yet, things look an awful lot better than they did a few…

New goalkeeper a Given

New goalkeeper a Given

Spurs have been strongly linked in the press today with Newcastle Goalkeeper Shay Given. Harry is quoted in the Daily Mail as saying: “Shay Given is a great goalkeeper who I admire. Any manager would have to be interested in him if he became available.” Given is a very solid goalkeeper and would be a great acquisition for Tottenham. He was previously unsettled at Newcastle and I’m sure he would be keen on the move but I’d assume uprooting his…

House of cards

House of cards

Like every other Tottenham fan, I couldn’t be happier at the minute. Our first league win of the season against Bolton, come back from the dead away to Arsenal, then get a victory against the unbeaten league leaders Liverpool to take us off the bottom of the table. A lot of pundits are saying Harry has been extremely lucky which I suppose he has but I just feel like some managers have that about them and some don’t. This feel…
