After last night’s hard fought 3-1 win over Stevenage, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp claimed that the match was as tough as expected and he derided anyone who felt we were going to ‘smash’ the league one outfit.

 “It was a difficult game, just what I expected,” said Harry.

“When I heard people saying we would smash this lot at home I thought ‘not a chance’.

“You only had to look at their record in terms of goals conceded away from home, very low, best in the division and a well-organised team who work their socks off.

“They are also dangerous on set-plays, every free-kick and corner comes in with a great delivery.”

Even at 3-1 it was a case of watching from behind the sofa for those of us who couldn’t make it and after going 1-0 down it was easy to fear the worst. Eventually, the finishing of Jermain Defoe saw us through and that will lead to inevitable debate as to why JD has featured more in recent weeks since returning from injury.

For the time being however we’re through and it’s Bolton at home in the 6th round on March 17th.

  1. Yeah. If Stevenage can be very dangerous on set pieces and corners then why cant we?? Its hard to remember when we last scored from a header at a corner and/or a free kick. Have we nobody with ‘great delivery’??

  2. i wanted to say something very controverial , he are higher placed in the leauge than arsenal which means we are doing better than them so why cant we bite our lips and put in a very good offer for robin van persie before man city does surely raffael van der vart can have a chat with him about making one large london team to deal with the manchester two . p.s dont sacrifice me

  3. me again i think teams like stevenage should not have been a worry to us and man u, man c ,arsenal would have blown them away so easy . when it comes to attacking we never seem to have enough players in and around the box although we did improve a bit concidering we played a lower leaugh side, we need to play with two strikers all the time because we are so light weight upfront . when we play with defoe and emanuel we always look hungry to score because they both want to be number 1 and defoe wants his england place back and im sure emanuel wants international football again too.
