Redknapp on Spurs defeat

Redknapp on Spurs defeat

These are the thoughts that Harry Redknapp shared with sky sports after our defeat to Spurs yesterday: 'I thought we were terrific. I must be honest, with 10 minutes to go at 0-0, I thought it would be a great point.

'I thought they ran out of ideas a bit. But then we defended poorly and got punished.

'But the lads worked hard and showed a great attitude today.

'Six lads that would have played, didn't play. But the lads that came in did a good job.

'They are a good team Tottenham. They are full of good, quality players'.

Spurs always looked more threatening than we did and ultimately got the win that they probably deserved, but with the amount of regulars missing out that we did, we did well to hold on as long as we did - it is just a shame that we could not have held on a little longer.

Those that did come in yesterday however did themselves justice to be honest so we cannot have many arguments, or grievances there can we. We are almost there in terms of having enough quality to cope with a number of injuries and suspensions - hopefully this will be balanced in the summer…

doing a well deserved double against pompey is really satisfying. Redknapp comprehensively out thought by amazing Ramos. Wish you well in the cup semi's though.

Don't know about out thought, I believe if we could of fielded our strongest side we would of won, Pompey may say otherwise but their thoughts were elsewhere on the day.

Bros should have come on for Utaka early in second half. Other than that I thought with 10 to go we would hold out for a 0-0. Anyway, bigger London games to come.

I was disappointed with how many Pompey fans left early after the double scoring. Yes I know it was freezing cold and kept snowing, and we never looked like scoring for a minute, but Pompey fans are supposed to get behind the team in times of adversity, not beggar off.

im not that keen on martins tbh, but do think that it is time for kanu to be moved on - i like the fella and all but he just cannot cut it to a level, and for a long enough level, anymore...

I was also very disappointed in Utaka - he has so much ability and pace but he just doesn't seem to bother. I'd rather have a player with less ability who gives his all than the other way around. How dare you pull on a Pompey shirt and not give 100%. Nugent may miss and fall over but at least he tries - I'd rather see him out there.

Finest in the Football League

I don't hide how highly I rate Chaplin. I feel he's the best striker in league two - better than most in league one. Cook said he is the best goalscorer outside the Premier League.
