If you read Harry Redknapp’s comments after the Blackpool match on Saturday then you could be forgiven for thinking that they could have been taken from any of Spurs’ games in recent weeks. Phrases such as ‘not to be’ and ‘just not our day’ seem to permeate all of our press conferences at the moment and this weekend was no different.
“We’ve struggled of late to score goals at home and we’ve not been able to kill teams off,” Redknapp is quoted as saying on the club website.
“We’ve had a few games where we’ve had lots of the play, passed the ball great but not managed to beat teams because we’ve not taken the opportunities we’ve created.
“You have spells like that. You have opportunities and you look at games, you think you can win them but it doesn’t go your way. It’s difficult to put your finger on it.
“It just wasn’t to be for us. It wasn’t through lack of effort, we couldn’t quite score the goals we needed.”
The draw virtually removes all hope of Spurs finishing fourth this season, leaving us to battle out for fifth with Liverpool who travel to Fulham tonight.
