Is Tottenham’s loss Manchester United’s gain?
soccersweep yesterday wrote about the possibility of Harry leaving Tottenham and it opened up a fascinating debate on the comments forum. We expected overwhelming support for Redknapp after 4 unquestionably successful years in charge.
As it turned out, many of you seem to share Daniel Levy’s apparent opinions about Redkanpp underachieving, especially in the second half of last season, when his head was seemingly turned by the England job.
The next big question for Spurs is, can they keep hold of their major stars in the wake of Harry’s sacking? Manchester United, for one, have been reportedly trying to snare Luka Modric all summer and the current instability at Tottenham may well push him closer to the exit door.
That said, you would imagine that Daniel Levy would have spoken to his top boys to gauge opinion before he made his decision. Surely he would do that before letting Harry go right? For Spurs fans sake, I really hope he did because it would be virtually impossible to replace Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.
The next few weeks at White Hart Lane should be very interesting. There is no doubt that the bookies favourite to succeed Harry, David Moyes, is a top quality coach. But will he embrace the expansive, attacking style of football that Spurs fans so crave and that Harry was so keen to give the fans?
We welcome your comments.
