Redknapp's praise for Davis

Redknapp's praise for Davis

Harry Redknapp has praised the contribution of Sean Davis this season, after he again came in from the cold to put in a couple of very good performances against Manyoo and Everton recently.

Davis looked destined for the Fratton exit just a couple of weeks back, with anything but looking highly unlikely - hence my, and I am sure plenty of you, feeling a sense of déjà vu recently - with it even rumoured that he 'could' have left yesterday and he had only come in to put him 'in the shop window.

However Redknapp has told the Pompey Site he was not looking to let him go, and has challenged him to again step up to the plate, as he did in the early part of last season: 'suddenly Sean's come back in the team, had two games and played great. He's now got a smile on his face again.

'He's done a good job for us and I never had any intention of letting him go.

'I never doubted him but it was hard last year with Muntari and Diarra in the centre. It was hard for Sean to get those two out of the team.

'But now Sulley's gone, Pedro's gone and Niko's injured, so he's back in again. Let's hope he keeps working hard and can stay in the side.'

Davis does do a good job for us, offering us the sort of effort and commitment - and something different - that few of our players have. The commitment and effort is something that we love, and we see plenty of that from him, and to be fair an amount of quality to!

Yep, he can at times run around like a headless chicken, and he could so with scoring more goals but on the evidence of the last couple of games, and going back to the first half of last season I for one am glad he is still here.

Given a chance I am sure he will again take it, and if he does then I suggest that we do something quickly about his contract as this expires next summer - so come January he could start talking to interested parties and organise a free elsewhere...

Sean was a key to the good start to last season and can do the same job again. No reason why given a decent chance he could not get back into the England squad in the future.

it's very difficult to compare them - as sean is what we need when we play with three midfielders, but pedro is the man you want when your only playing with two... mendes is more technickly gifted... yet there's something about sean that makes the team work better...

sean has the will power and determintion. he makes up for what he lacks in skill with effort.

Chuffed to bits he's still here. Like his workrate and commitment. A very very good squad player who has the ability to step up as Harry puts it.
