How We Toon Fans Long For 'Killer' Competition
Published : 04 Aug 2011 11:34:29
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."
