The Tottenham Hotspur slide continued this week as they made it a fourth game without victory drawing with Stoke City at White Hart Lane on Wednesday. Persistent talk of Harry Redknapp’s future seems to have hampered Spurs’ ambitions of finishing in the Premier League top three with thei great rivals leapfrogging them following their failure to beat the mid-table Potters on home turf. Redknapp has moved to deny that the constant speculation over whether he’ll take the England job has been the catalyst for his sides poor form with their last victory coming in the 5-0 whitewash of Newcastle in mid-Febraury. They’ll need to get back to winning ways if they are to fulfil their Champions League ambitions. They will take confidence from their point at the Bridge today and Harry will hope it will be the catalyst for a strong finish to the end of the season.
This week at FFC Tottenham’s cautious approach in the transfer market has been scrutinised whilst one of Europe’s leading midfield talents has revealed his sorrow at declining the chance to move to North London.
