Having listened in recent weeks to Harry Redknapp’s comments suggesting that we can’t compete with Manchester City’s money, it may have surprised a few people today to read that our manager feels that City are ‘no better than us’.
“It seems to me they can go as far as they want to go,” the quote reads. “The sky is the limit.
“They have an owner who can spend anything he wants and they could go out and buy another four or five world-class players in the summer and try to win the Champions League. It won’t be beyond them.
“They have good players already but I wouldn’t say they are any better than us to be truthful.”
The money thrown around by City and Chelsea led Harry to question why any Tottenham supporters would expect us to be in the Champions League every year. Perhaps these latest comments indicate that he knows where the season has really been defined and three points from a possible eighteen against the sides currently in the bottom three has been a key factor in our final 2010-11 placing.
