Redknapp Concedes Champions League Spot To City



Harry Redknapp has conceded that the race for a Champions League spot looks beyond Spurs' capabilities this season.

The Tottenham boss stated: 'Who are you going to knock out? You're not going to knock Man United out, Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City. It looks like we're going to finish fifth'.

With money to spend, Redknapp will be hoping to bolster his squad with further additions in a bid to keep up with the front runners.

'The owner would like me in all honesty to go and spend his money and buy somebody who could make the difference,' enthused Redknapp.

Unfortunately for the 63-year-old, Roberto Mancini's side appear favourites to secure the signing of the prolific Edin Dzeko from Wolfsburg, meaning Spurs' chances of a top four finish look ever slimmer.

Is Redknapp right in saying Spurs dont stand a chance? Have your say below.

Just can't keep his mouth shut can he?? Spent all that time telling everyone Spurs have a chance to go for the title, then we win 2 on the bounce and he decides we'll never make top four??? I'm sure it's a tactic to try to deflect pressure or something like that, but really wish he'd just shut it sometimes! Citeh look good for the top four though, so much more consistant this year than last!
The Horses Mouth
so much more consistent? lol
Reddevils4ever89
City look good, but we still have a long way to go before we have fully gelled and the team has been stable for 2 or three years. That said, its not like Chelsea's teamspirit has done much to bolster their chances. I think Spurs are concentrating too much on denying City a top 4 spot, we could both realistically finish there together.
eighthsin
Exactly the same strategy used by Redknapp as Kidd the other day in saying the title is United's to lose. Oh, and Mancini said it earlier this season about Chelsea. Putting the pressure on others and off their own team.
StuMCFC
Me and Arry will have to agree to disagree then, however these are obviously not his true sentiments.
blinkblue
Eigth, I'm sure it doesn't bother any Spurs fan or player who actually finishes in the top four, as long as we do! Whoever's in fourth is our target team, this week that's Ch£lski, could be anyone next week!
The Horses Mouth
You have to admire harry's ability to turn attention away from his clubs, he's always done the same ay every one of his many berths
Clevblue
Clever Harry ! Citeh all but declare Dzeko has signed so what does 'Arry go & do ? Brilliant 8^D "Oi Levy get the check-book out... IMMEDIATELY" !!!
True Spurs Supporter
Harry will sign Dzeko next week. Then he'll say City for the title.
Huddsnewsnarl
ho hum, tedious appy arry ( and lost retard Reddevils4ever89, we should be more consistent like you scum, 7 draws away is it?). who gives a fek what arry says, he's a pathological liar (just ask the tax man who's comin to get him in the new year). If the yids get dzeko we'll have to make do with carrol. bugger, how are we going to get by.
tublu
did he really say that!? sounds different to what else he's been saying
arthur7171
City do look more consistant - I guess another £100m of Oil money last summer plus Dzeko will do that. Bring on the fair play rules
HuddersfieldYiddo
Whichever page HuddsYiddo writes on it's clear he's very bitter, more so than a bitter blue! I think Chelsea are the vulnerable ones this season and I expect both City & Spurs to be top 4. The times they are a -changing. It is no longer a comfort zone. Just ask our friends at the other end of the East Lancs Road
pedmachine
Why does he keep banging on about City all season? Taggart does the same. Weirdos.
Johnny Baguette
nobody is certain to finish in the top 4 including city, and who says dzeko will sign? agreeing a fee and getting the player to sign are 2 different things, apart from money what else can city offer? no history no harmony and no morals, also who says dzeko will take to the premiership? bigger players than him have failed as im sure city fans know, remember robinho? adebayor was a great player for the goons but no good at city, they destroy players, silva is rubbish there so is bridge, swp, kolorov, lescott, boetang etc, spurs will be in top 4 imo but thats all it is MY OPINION!! COYS
spursman79
No history? Silva is rubbish there? you're having a laarf mate!
Johnny Baguette
yeh he is definately showing he is worth the £25m paid isn't he? ok i will rephrase the history bit............. NO RELEVANT HISTORY!
spursman79
spursman79, are you on the wind up or are they genuine opinions you're spewing there? If they are genuine may I suggest you actually watch City play before you formulate your opinion. Have you watched Silva? Why am I even bothering?
Bluedub
Bluedub, spurman79 is a retard.
me_innit
City has a very relevant history, those who believe football began in 1992 wouldn't know otherwise. Of all fanbases, Spurs fans should know that history extends far back, as they have underachieved just like us for a number of years.
StuMCFC
actually the quote was kind of taken out of context, it was said with a degree of jest. either way, it's gonna be a close one. nothing would make me happier than arsenal dropping out. the more new teams break into the top of the league the better. i just hope city settle down a bit, they've got a great side with heaps of potential. i hope the dzeko signing is the end of it because i don't think mancini is doing himself or his players justice by splashing the cash. dzeko would be the icing on anyone's cake. same goes for levy, of course we're not in the financial position of city but there's no point in throwing money around and gambling just because you can.
hk_yid
His intelligence is in football management, not media relations. An off the cuff comment he hadnt really thought through. Exciting for City fans to hear, though, Im sure.
Stratty
Harry is a mouth (un7. City are a bunch of (unt5.
Tottenham Hotcore
spursman79,that was harsh on Silva. He has been fabulous for the past few games. he had a tough start but he is starting to show his class now. City have improved from last year, that is clear to see. I dont think city will win the league because you guys often fail to take the game by the scruff of the neck and tend to sit back and wait for the opportunities to arrive. this i feel is city's only weakness which will hinder your chances of winning the league. But i think you will finish in the top 4 this year
Yid_from_India
No doubt its going to be very tight getting into the top 4 , all we can do is let Harry loose from time to time and keep winning games no matter how ! but given the passes that come into the box and no 1 there to convert is very trying we need the best converter money can buy that`s for sure Harry !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
