Shooting Fish With Harry Redknapp: Tottenham Never Man Says Stoke Deserved To Win
MORE news on Harry Redknapp, Spurs manager and barrel-swimming fish, who never – NEVER – says anything about the referees. Well, having seen his Spurs side defeated by Stoke City and a poor performance by man in black Chris Foy, Anorak harks back to when the two clubs met in 2010.
The referee that day was Chris Foy, the man Redknapp says “seems to enjoy” scuppering Spurs. The paper recalls how Jonathan Walters scored, only to have his effort wrongly disallowed.
Redknapp shared his thoughts:
“We deserved to win anyway because in the first half they couldn’t get near us.”
This season, Stoke were 2-0 up at half time, having bossed Spurs for large parts of the game. In Redknapp’s reckoning that makes Stoke worthy winners, right? Wrong:
“We were poor first half, I hold my hand up. We didn’t play well. But we changed it at half-time and in the second half we battered them… I never complain about referees’ decisions – I have not done it in 30 years of management, never. But today, I’m afraid, he got some badly wrong.”
