QPR Falls Short at Spurs

MOST COMMENTED

Queens Park Rangers coach Harry Redknapp was booed by his own fans after the former Tottenham Hotspur coach saluted the White Hart Lane faithful during QPR’s 4-0 loss at White Hart Lane. After the game, Redknapp said his men played like ‘a team of strangers.’

Despite looking uncomfortable with 3-5-2 formation, the QPR manager said his team would persist with the three-man defensive system. “A disappointing day, very disappointing,” he said. “We started poorly and looked a little bit like a team of strangers. We let them play, didn’t get close to anybody, stood off them. Disappointing. I don’t know if the system is the problem. We played OK last week [in losing 1-0 to Hull] but it’s about energy really. We were slow on the ball, looked off the pace, didn’t have any energy. We weren’t sharp enough in certain areas and we’ll have to work harder than that, with and without the ball.”

Spurs, meanwhile, is top of the Premier League with two wins from two games, and a goal difference of five.
