Redknapp Better Than Me With Media – Kinnear

Kinnear is good friends with Harry Redknapp, who officially took charge of Tottenham Hotspur yesterday.

Harry Redknapp – big job at Tottenham

Kinnear played for Spurs over a 10 year stretch with 196 appearances and 3 goals from 1965 through 1975.

The appointment of his 61-year-old friend will mean that Spurs should start to climb the table very quickly, but it’s up to us to pull ourselves out of our relegation trouble, and we cannot rely on other teams doing badly to help us.

There’s no way Spurs should be bottom of the league, with the terrific quality of players they have, and Harry will soon bring the team together, as he would have done if he had accepted the Newcastle job in January.

Harry has always been a players’ manager, which is exactly what the Spurs’ players need right now.

Joe Kinnear welcomed the arrival of one of the very few people who actually backed his appointment as interim manager at Newcastle United last month, and Joe spoke about Harry to the Newcastle Journal this morning:

“He will do a good job,” “He’s vastly experienced and similar to myself in that he is hands-on with players, but better with the media.”

“He’s had his difficult times, but that’s part and parcel of management but done exceptionally well as well. He will do well.”

We can do ourselves a lot of good tonight by beating a mediocre West Brom side, and these are the type of games we just must win at home.   We expect to win this game, and anything else quite honestly will be a huge disappointment.

Comments always welcome.

    hope xisco gets a go tonight at some point.

    and can i just say… everyone who puts colo and bassong as their cbs on these “my ideal teams”, i hope you realise that taylor won’t miss any games in the near future without injury or suspension….

    just saying. he’s not going anywhere so we have to support him.

    AO – Go and boil you head mate. At least our team is up for the fight. We come back from behind. Your team shows no promise of that. A goal goes past you lot and its heads down. Might as well call the final whistle. Your dead in the water.

    ao…define what you mean by a bigger club…past success…league position…suppot…stadium size…global reputation….turnover…not sure which of these tottenham would be placed higher than newcastle in…so you must measure the size of the club by something else…explain
