Redknapp Concedes Champions League Spot To City

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!

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.

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.

Me and Arry will have to agree to disagree then, however these are obviously not his true sentiments.

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!

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.
