Harry Redknapp was unhappy with Tottenham’s defending after watching his side lose 4-2 at Bolton.
It was back down to earth with a dump following the midweek win against Inter, with an awful, narrow display at the Reebok Stadium.
He told Sky Sports: “It is obviously disappointing. They got after us, they did well. They worked hard, pressed us, didn’t let us play. It was difficult.
“Away from home we start the game trying to be solid in the first half, and we had some good opportunities.
“But we went a goal down, so I brought another striker on, went 4-4-2 and we are as open as a barn door. And that is the problem.
“We are too open. We don’t defend well enough. The game was too open and you can’t be doing that.
“That is the balancing act you try to sort out. We got punished.”
