Harry’s checkmate

I’m cutting straight to the chase here, but this was a manager’s game won purely on tactics. Is it just me or is Harry getting comfortable with early substitutions?

Tactical choices. I was delighted to see Keane and Jenas come on. Yes, I said it. Not something you hear often, but I said it. Each added the right amount of bite to put us 2 ahead and seal the victory.

This new “not afraid to mash it up” Redknapp is a joy to watch. He’s actually getting up off of his seat these days and not just sending his bulldog Joe to tear someone’s head off.

Harry has Spurs playing attacking football with a strong focus on defense, and I believe the boys are responding quite well. There are still a few things that need immediate attention if we are to sustain any sort of momentum leading into the new year, but overall, things lay on the positive end of the spectrum at this moment.

Watching Tottenham in the last two matches, I have come to realize that it must be quite the difficult task to balance the squad. You need the perfect mix of attacking, midfield and defensive authority to win a match. Let alone, winning two matches back-to-back without conceding any goals.

    Good point about Harry and tactics. He has been prone to let things drift and hope for the best.
    I thought that Keane and Jenas both played well when they came on.
    Merry Xmas to all your readers.
    Could be tight at Fulham unless we thrash them. No probably not.
