Harry: We deserved the win

Harry: We deserved the win


Spurs manager Harry Redknapp claimed that Tottenham’s win yesterday was fully deserved amidst some predictable claims to the contrary from his opposing manager.

Despite the narrow margin of victory that was sealed by Kyle Walker’s first goal for the club, Tottenham had the clearer chances and had either of Scott Parker or Emmanuel Adebayor found the net with just the keeper to beat, the score line would have been higher.

“They started the second half well, got the goal and they were in the ascendancy then and we could have been in trouble,” said Harry after the win.

“So I made the change to try and get a grip of the midfield a bit more. Sandro came on and I thought we did that.

“I thought we looked stronger, we got on top and created all the chances.

“We were the better team in the second half and deserved the win. We had a couple of great chances to finish them off, just couldn’t find that third goal.”

That makes it four wins in four now and victory keeps the club in sixth place with a game in hand over those above us. After the international break it’s Newcastle and a trip to St James’s Park on October 16th.


  1. Yes we did deserve the win, but Harry overshadowed this landmark victory by commenting on the chants by the Arsenal fans against Adebayor.

    These chants were designed to and achieved their objective of unsettling him. By complaining about them Harry has made it more likely that they will resume in the returm match at the Emirates stadium.

    If Adebayor had buried the chance he had in the 57th minute when he was one on one with Szczesny then he would have silenced these taunts – instead he bottled it!

    Neither Harry or Adebayor can blame Arsenal fans for that!
