Harry Redknapp has praised the impact of Wilson Palacios in the Tottenham team, singling him out as one of the main causes of the club’s change from relegation strugglers to Champions League qualification contenders.

Redknapp took over with the club languishing at the bottom of the table and told Hotspur Magazine that the signing of Palacios has been key to the change in Spurs’ fortunes.

“One or two players have made a difference here. Wilson Palacios has made a massive impact on this club. He gets on with it, he’s strong, aggressive and a big player for us.

“Sebastian Bassong has come in alongside Ledley King, Michael Dawson, Jonathan Woodgate. Robbie Keane’s back and he’s a buzzy character around the place.

“We’ve brought a few players in and it has changed the mood. They see the likes of Wilson come in who work and close down and it rubs off on other people. You need players like that.”

  1. This is true and it has given big Tom the confidantes to do his share of tackles and its showing when he plays at the back .But just lately Palacios is showing a little bit of rustiness and this could be because he went home before the end of the season because of is poor brother and he is playing catch up with is fitness .Lets hope he gets is super form back. Starting with Saturday another player that is not playing to is best form is Ekotto he has stopped attacking like he did last year and doe sent go forward as much this showed with Boswinger dominating him and whipping ball after ball into the box, even ronaldo failed to do this last year. This worry s me against Bolton because taylor and davies will target is wing with corners and crosses that’s why my back four for this game would be .GOMES 6f4 CORLUKA 6ft4 DAWSON 6FT2 HUDDLESTONE 6FT3 BASSONG 6FT1 And before other fans point out he is not a left back he is a defender 6ft1 and ekotto is 5ft8 and there will be many times during games were he will find himself playing the ball from the left and tackling the benifits would be is heading and stopping crosses .We need a big back four to stopp davies mugging us again, this back line will fail cudicini 6ft0 corluka 6 down the left for megson to exploit Harry.

  2. davspurs – you’ve got it right bout the back four. It’s very important that we’re able to shut down Davies and their set pieces.
