Really? I don't recall that at all. We didn't collapse in the league till after we dropped out of the Champions League anyway.
Even the most optimistic Spurs fan wouldn't expect us to win 10 or 11 games on the bounce without a loss. 10 or 11 games without a victory is pathetic for any team with any kind of expectations though - it's relegation form! To do it 2 years running is a bit worrying if you ask me.
You say it's not because you simply don't like Redknapp, but then you repeat them same false argument. We never went 10 or 11 games without a victory this season. You must know this, as you follow us carefully, yet you keep saying it. Why? The only reason I can think of for you to do this is to try and validate your reasons for wanting Redknapp out.
We did have a bad rum of form, but really it wa just because we had a run of tough fixtures. Also our form never collapsed after the CL last year. We lost two games, to Cheslea away (to 2 goals that shouldn't have been allowed) and to Man City away. Again you must know this, yet you present it as an argument to remove Harry. It comes across as very false. We still finished above Liverpool, but the problem we faced was that City spent insane amounts of money on top quality players. On top of that we had to compete in Europe. A few years ago our dream was to shatter the "big 4." We've done that under Harry, but unfortunately at the same time Man City have become the richest club in the world. Our fans have just become incredibly unreasonable.
The other day you even claimed that the side Harry finshed 4th with was similar to the side Jol finished 5th with, suggesting it wasn't as big an achievement as made out. But you know full well that Jol never had to contend with Man City, yet you don't mention it. Also, you know that the 2nd time Jol finished 5th we were nowhere near 4th, finishing 8 points adrift of Arsenal and only moving into 5th on the last day of the season, having been in mid table for much of the campaign. Our points total was closer to Pompey in 9th, than it was to 4th. You must know this, yet chose to spin things in a way that discredit Harry.
The side the Jol really did nearly finish 4th with in 2005/6 was nothing like the one Harry finished 4th with. In the 3 seasons inbetween we'd gone progressively down hill at a rapid rate and much had changed at the club. But you must already know this.
Can you see why I'm suspisious of yours and every other Spurs fans true motives when they want Harry out? I've seen loads of anti Harry arguments and they are all weak as piss. Most Spurs fans didn't want him at the club in the first place and have had their ego's damaged by the him being a success. I honestly feel like some of our fans resent Harry for giving us our highest ever Prem finishes.
