Spurs Priorities

Despite the fact Tottenham are clearly in with a massive chance of making the knock-out stages of the Champions League, Harry Redknapp and his side have shown they are fully focused on matters back home.

It's clear to me that domestic dominance is a more important quest than pursuing what the Champions League betting suggests would be an unlikely European triumph.

It's a tough balancing act to pull off. Harry Redknapp and the Spurs players will want to do as well as they can in the Champions League, but at the same time, ensuring they qualify to play in it again next season.

The fact Redknapp was prepared to play Ledley King against Fulham, rather than at the San Siro, is a clear sign of which competition he wants his side to be stronger in this season. Either that, or Harry's already played the match in his head and we have lost.

Our win against Fulham came despite us not being at our best. I suppose this shows that the team is able to dig deep in order to achieve the sort of result that few Spurs teams in recent years would have been able to pull off. A glance at the Fulham betting will tell you they're a tough side to beat at home, plus, they were unbeaten all season, until we came along.

Having said all this, the fact that Spurs have spent such an impressive amount of cash to strengthen their squad in recent years means that we surely should have no worries when it comes to putting out a top side in either competition, even if this means we need to sacrifice the success we have achieved in previous years, especially when it comes to domestic cup competitions.

Wouldn't you prefer that we do well in the Champions League rather than Carling Cup success? It seems to me that Harry is doing the right thing.
