Harry won’t rush into transfer dealings

HARRY REDKNAPP has warned Tottenham fans that he will not be forced into making transfer decisions after the recent flurry of activity.

The Spurs boss has already admitted that the club cannot compete financially with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool after losing out on Roque Santa Cruz, Gareth Barry and Glen Johnson.

Redknapp praised Heurelho Gomes for his form in the second part of the season and is a big fan of Cudicini, so it’s doubtful he’ll go and spend £6million on Watford’s England Under-21 keeper, Scott Loach.

He said: ‘We’re not going to rush in,’ he said. ‘I have spoken to the chairman Daniel Levy and we’ve decided if we can’t get players who will improve the team we’re not going to bother. We’ve already got a decent squad, many of whom are going to get better. But we recognise we have to improve.

‘If Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate stay injury-free we’ll be strong at centre-half and the goalkeeping situation is much better. After early problems with Heurelho Gomes, he looked a different proposition to the one he was when I took over. We ended the season with two excellent keepers in him and Carlo Cudicini.

‘I think the fans were genuinely happy with what happened after I came. When you’ve only got two points from eight games, you’re in trouble, aren’t you?

‘Confidence was low but by the end of the season we had a great home record. We’ve got to improve the away results next season. If we can do that we can push to finish in the top six. That has to be our aim and I believe we can achieve it.’

  1. Leave Harry to it.He can take as long as he wants.He’s right not to rush into transfers.take time and have a good look.

  2. I totally agree with Harry. The current squad is good enough to give us a good season and some of the players will have improved. Plus they have the advantage of having played together.
    If the right players come along at the right price and they’re better than what we’ve got, great. Otherwise let’s stick with what we have and don’t get caught up in the frenzy.

  3. I think we’ll still be hearing the “2 points from 8 games” right up to the day ‘Arry retires!! Lol. Seriously tho, I really want to see us bring some people in to satisfy my lust for star names at the Lane but if ‘Arry isn’t 100% on them then I’ll understand & just have to continue to work on suppressing those urges. However, I also don’t want to see us having a panic on the final day as we sell our 2 strikers & have to scurry around with 2 hours left in the window trying to replace them.

  4. Scurrying around with 2 hours of a transfer window left? that rings a bell, Bass! Let’s hope we don’t end up with another Andy Booth/Frazier Campbell class of forward.
