I'm not saying it's just his impact, but pre-Redknapp we'd probably have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in the second half - times like that show our true place in the PL I think; still work to do, and the Manchester teams (and in the old days Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool - less so now) would rarely get as messy as we did for such a prolonged period, but we've clearly advanced a lot as we played 'gritty' when necessary and got the win in style.
Good game all round, some really classy football in there and the ever important 3 points. My only additional wish would have been a clean sheet; our GD looks alright, but when you bare in mind the 8 shipped against Mancs and there being 3 or 4 clean sheets out of 9 games it's even better. I'm bring picky about the clean sheet as I think it will help cement faith in our "attack from defense" style.
Loved the game today. Like Joe, I was apprehensive, because I thought it was pivotal on the way our season would go...start dropping points against newly promoted sides and confidence wanes! But we didn't, and we were as convincing as we should have been. If not for their excellent 'keeper it would have been a slaughter! Pleased with Lennon and Bale, they both showed they have more than raw pace, they have a touch and a passing game, which they used to good effect today. Would like to have seen Daffy come on for Ade after about seventy, just to change it up front a little bit, Ade played OK, but he looked just a touch off the pace. Scott Parker was so good, I don't think there is a more skillful tackler about, QPR midfield were given no time at all on the ball by him. There was a spell after half-time when they scored and started to get at us a bit, when we looked really rattled, but once we calmed down, normal service was resumed! vdV has been proving me wrong lately, I'm still not sure about him, but his goal record speaks volumes about his value! 3-1 was good enough, but most of all I like the style and pace we played with. There's not a better side than Spurs to watch in the Prem when we play like this! Nope. Not one.
