Harry Redknapp is adamant Tottenham will secure a place in the top-four this season. On the evidence of their current performances that assertion seems wholly wide of the mark. Saturday’s defeat away at struggling QPR left Spurs in fifth spot three points behind the Magpies and seven behind their North London rivals. Reasons for their sudden decline have yet to be pinpointed although the commotion over Redknapp and the vacant England job has certainly been a deciding factor. Both and his players have taken their eye off the ball after establishing a significant advantage in the race for the Champions League. However they’re now in danger of missing out on their goal of bringing Champions League football back to White Hart Lane. One win in nine Premier League games needs to be rectified before it’s too late.
This week on FFC could a proverbial slap in the face provide a wake up call for Tottenham and could the downturn in form of one player hold the key to fixing their problems?

“I said to the chairman ‘can you get me Carlos Tevez? Daniel made some enquiries, but it wasn’t doable. If he could have done it, he would have.
“He (Levy) would have loved Tevez, but it wasn’t possible because his wages are £200,000 a week. It’s not possible at Tottenham to buy him.
“He is a fantastic player. When he puts a shirt on he doesn’t stop running, working, he’s enthusiastic, he can play and he can score goals.” Harry Redknapp reveals he wanted to bring Carlos Tevez to Tottenham in the January transfer window
