Redknapp braced for reunion

QPR boss Harry Redknapp reckons his former club Tottenham have enough quality to field two sides capable of challenging at the top of the Premier League.

Harry Redknapp: Ready to face his former club Tottenham for the first time since

Redknapp welcomes the club that sacked him at the end of last season to Loftus Road on Saturday and has watched his successor, Andre Villas-Boas, guide them to third in the table.

Survival, by contrast, is the challenge at Loftus Road and Redknapp knows the league's bottom-placed side face a tough task to make his reunion with the north Londoners a memorable one.

"Spurs could field two teams who could compete in the Premier League," he told the Evening Standard.

"They have a second team who would hold their own at the top level without any problem. For a start, they have five top-class centre-backs.

"They can afford to let Danny Rose go to Sunderland on loan because they have people like Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Kyle Naughton and Kyle Walker in the squad. They have loads of top-class midfielders.

"They're full of quality everywhere. It's a similar group to the one I left but then Mousa Dembele has gone in and done well. They have an outstanding group of players, no doubt about that."

Redknapp had guided Spurs to their second fourth-placed finish in three campaigns before he was dismissed, but denies any ill-feeling towards his former employers.

"It will be strange but time moves on and I have no bad feelings towards Tottenham," he added.

"I don't live my life like that. I had a great time there, I loved the fans and they were great to me.

"Not many people walk away from a club as popular as I was at that time. Normally when you leave a football club, you go out with the fans shouting for you to go but I never had that. The people treated me absolutely brilliantly."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
