Overall, despite a brief scare that followed Jay Bothroyd’s goal in the second half, Spurs’ win over QPR was comfortable and after the match, manager Harry Redknapp declared that his team were a ‘joy to watch’ at times.
While Gareth Bale and VDV grabbed the headlines for their goals, Scott Parker and Luka Modric were brilliant in midfield while the back four were solid enough to cope with any QPR attack.
“We were fantastic in the first half,” said Harry.
“I thought it was unbelievable how we moved the ball, the movement off the ball, the passing, everything about it was superb.
Harry admitted to a nervous time however, after Bothroyd’s header.
“They got the goal and that changes attitudes, they were back in the game. We still had loads of chances, the keeper made some great saves and even in the second half Adebayor, Gareth, we had chances going begging.
“I think we’re a real joy to watch. I love the way we pass the ball, the way we move the ball, the movement off the ball is first-class, the options. We’ve got some smashing players, I’m just pleased to be part of it.”
The win keeps Spurs in fifth, level on points with Newcastle and Chelsea who stay above us and next up in the Premier League is a trip to Craven Cottage to take on Martin Jol’s Fulham next weekend.
