Jenas earns Redknapp praise


Jermaine Jenas

Harry Redknapp has lavished praise upon Jermaine Jenas for his performance against Werder Bremen in the Champions League.

Jenas produced a disciplined, yet effective performance in place of the injured Luka Modric in the centre of the pitch and Redknapp was impressed with what he saw from the much-maligned midfielder.

“JJ did ever so well; very pleased with him today.

“I thought he was excellent in the middle of the park. That’s as good as I’ve seen him.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. "“JJ did ever so well; very pleased with him today.

    “I thought he was excellent in the middle of the park. That’s as good as I’ve seen him.”

    Harry is very clever with his comments. Leaving in Jenas in know doubt that he hasn't been doing enough previously. Jenas did well TODAY, that is the best I've seen him…. in other words, where was that before?

  2. Spot on Harry what surprised me was all the players dribbled when a pass was not there and made room for one. This has bean missing from our game and could be because The Van der man was showing them in training how to move the ball and create space and not like we have bean doing and gone for the difficult pass and lost the ball. Lets have more of this and two things in defence don't go negative near half time keep the ball moving forward and when a player his baring down on goal don't. back off throw your body at the ball and Block something only Dawson does Kings knee stops him from doing this so Kaboul and Corluka should have blocked Marins shot. More of the forty two mins and less of the rest and we will be Super slick Spurs

  3. I was asking myself the self same question last night. I have always thought Jenas has everything any player could possibly ask for, always promising something special, but it never materialised with us. Last night and also at Stoke he played well within himself, did the simple things effectively, was alert, efficient and passed superbly . Could we buy a better player in today's market for the fee he'd command if sold? keep it up JJ, no more promises eh?.

  4. It is a pity Harry did not strengthen his midfield and defence when we were 2-0 up. I think he did it too late when Lennon was replaced by Palacios.

    It is still the same old story of Spurs losing their concentration when they are leading. Does it not reflect ‘mental weakness’? Some improvement is required in this respect.

  5. Spurs have lots to learn this season & will need to grow up fast! All talk about winning league or finishing higher or further than Ar5ena1 is ludicrous. We need to show we can continue progress from a season- what is worrying this season is the team only playing for upto 60mins- after this they hit a WALL- this must be overcome & VDV is definitely the man to overcome it- he unlike rest of team won't give the ball up easily. What is worrying is the lack of guile amongst the offensive players. VDV, Modric and Bale are easily our best and knock spots of our forwards. Lennon, Pav, Keane, Crouch & Defoe all need to read others games more. After 60 mins our offensive play becomes non existence except through Bale!!
