What a day to be a Spurs fan

What a day to be a Spurs fan

After our disappointing FA Cup Semi Final exit at the hands of Portsmouth, I don’t think anyone could have predicted that Tottenham would bounce back in such dramatic fashion. With our run of fixtures, I honestly thought a top 4 finish was very unlikely, but after two incredible victories, Spurs are now favourites to take the last Champions League spot. Being the pessimist that I am, I’m still expecting something to go wrong somewhere! Obviously the big one looks to…

The Facebook supporters are the reason we won’t win tonight

The Facebook supporters are the reason we won’t win tonight

I’m happy with the way things have gone this season. I never honestly expected to win anything or manage a 4th place finish. Top 6 was always what I realistically thought Spurs would achieve and that still looks like being the case. There has been some good and some bad but overall you’d have to be happy with the strong squad Harry Redknapp has managed to build in a relatively short time. What has really got to me this season…

Why does everyone but Harry love Pavlyuchenko?

Why does everyone but Harry love Pavlyuchenko?

Although Roman Pavlyuchenko seems to be the current favourite among the Spurs faithful on the back of his goal scoring exploits, manager Harry Redknapp doesn’t appear to be a massive fan of the Russian. Regarding Pavlyuchenko, Redknapp has been quoted as saying, “when he wants to play and wants to work he’s great.” He has been a bit more positive about the striker since those comments but I still feel like it’s painful for the Spurs boss to say anything…

Let’s keep our fingers crossed for Harry and for Sol

Let’s keep our fingers crossed for Harry and for Sol

Last time I commented about Harry Redknapp’s tax problems and shady past I was told in no uncertain terms I was in the wrong. Last time I commented on Sol Campbell I was accused of being all kinds of prejudice. Therefore, I thought why not get them both involved today and you can really go to town on me! A few weeks ago I said Harry’s tax issues could have an adverse affect on our season. Thus far, you couldn’t…

Harry needs to get his own house in order

Harry needs to get his own house in order

Before I start I’d like to say I have no problem with what Harry has got out of the players on the pitch. He’s done wonders to get Spurs to the standard they are playing at currently and I hope he’s at the helm for the foreseeable future. What I think is a problem is when our players pick up the tabloids and find yet another Harry exclusive. His reputation has always been a little bit shady but his likeable…

Harry’s not worried

Harry’s not worried

Just when Rafa Benitez thought things couldn’t get any worse, a study published by Foster’s today reveals the Liverpool manager is officially one of the most worried managers in the Premiership. The leading Aussie beer brand analysed the interviews and statements from every Premiership manager since the beginning of the season using its Ozometer, an algorithm developed specifically to analyse language and word sequences to determine how worried or carefree a person is. More than a thousand different quotes were…

Was Harry right?

Was Harry right?

Harry Redknapp gave Jermain Defoe a dressing down in front of his team mates after his sending off against Pompey on Saturday. Nothing wrong with that as far as I’m concerned, especially when he already warned him to cool it at half time. Redknapp said: “Yes. He’s sorry for what’s done. For sure. I gave him a rollicking in front of all the lads, to be fair.” “He can be a bit like that,” “At times, he has to learn…

Can we prep for Utd in a day?

Can we prep for Utd in a day?

With a number of players not returning to training until Friday, it means we only have one day to prepare for Saturday’s crunch clash with Manchester United. Harry Redknapp isn’t happy about this situation; “I have no idea in my head of what team I will be able to play against United because of these internationals and because many of them won’t be back at the club until next Friday. They are returning from all over the world.” Obviously, Utd…

Who should start?

Who should start?

The Tottenham team has pretty much been picking itself in the league since the opening game of season, but after some good performances from the fringe players at Doncaster on Wednesday, do any of them deserve to start at the Lane against Birmingham tomorrow? It’s a hard one for Harry Redknapp because on paper, Birmingham at home should be an easy 3 points. Obviously nothing should be taken for granted but it must be tempting for him to give Crouch,…

Poor Pavlyuchenko and Well Done West Ham

Poor Pavlyuchenko and Well Done West Ham

He certainly appears to be the 4th choice striker as far as Harry Redknapp is concerned and now Roman Pavlychenko has decided 4th place isn’t good enough and he wants to leave Tottenham because of his lack of first team chances. ‘No footballer likes being on the bench game after game,’ said the 27-year-old. ‘I could lose my place in the Russian squad for the 2010 World Cup. ‘I’m ready now to listen to offers from other clubs. But I…
