How We Toon Fans Long For 'Killer' Competition

04 August 2011 11:34
We got used to travelling across Europe in the days of Kevin Keegan and Sir Bobby Robson . and the Toon fans would LOVE another crack at European football. But Tottenham Harry Redknapp has labelled the Europa League a Premier League 'killer' due to the amount of matches and travelling. Redknapp will utilise his younger players for European action. The White Hart Lane tactician has labelled the situation a 'nightmare', although he insists the club will be giving it a go in the tournament. Harry Redknapp: "The young lads will get plenty of games in the Europa League because, otherwise, I think it's a killer, to be frank. "Thursday and Sunday every week, you've got no chance in the Premier with that. It kills you off, it's a nightmare. "You have to go to crazy places, but we'll give it our best shot and just give it a go."
