A usual sight at White Hart Lane

“Chelsea, Man United, Arsenal – I think the champions will come from them.” Enough said! Those are the words of the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Harry Redknapp. Thats the harsh reality which the ego of the fans of the club of the miserable half of North London doesn’t allow them to accept. Redknapp, however pathetic he is, knows Spurs aren’t Champions material. Three words – Not good enough.

The side playing in the Champions League this year instead of the usual participants Liverpool got defeated 4-3 at the San Siro by Inter Milan last night. The scoreline looks close, but it was 4-0 at half time before Gareth Bale (who is wasting is time at Spurs, he is clearly out of their league) got a hattrick and added some respectability to the final scoreline; not that there was a chance of winning. In the Premier League they are currently level on points with rivals Arsenal and Manchester United. But its only been 8 games and Redknapp knows his side doesn’t have what it takes to stay there till the end, using the fact that they are playing in the Champions League as an excuse. I, for one, can’t wait to see what excuse he comes up with after crashing out of the competition’s group stages.

“It’s hard. I think we’ve found balancing the Champions League with the Premier League difficult. It’s a new experience.

“Listen, if we can get anywhere near doing what we did last year we’ll be delighted again. That’s got to be our aim, to try to get another top-four finish. That’s the goal again. Chelsea, Man United, Arsenal – I think the champions will come from them.”

Something to taunt the Spurs fans about, as if there wasn’t enough already!
