HATCHET MAN: Redknapp in U-turn sensation: Gomes is a good keeper after all

23 March 2009 01:39
The fair play award of the week has to go to Harry Redknapp for admitting he was wrong about Heurelho Gomes.

The Tottenham

manager was not the only one to underestimate Spurs' Brazilian   goalkeeper (Hatchet Man was in good company there!) but he has not given up on   him.

Gomes is still prone to blunders and cannot be confident to have held off the   challenge of Carlo Cudicini yet but he is earning the chance.

What a save: Gomes earns more praise

Redknapp said: 'I'd be a liar if I told you I expected him to be performing like that when I first arrived here. I was worried about him, but now he's playing terrifically well.'

Next week's unlikely U-turn: Harry admits Mrs Redknapp couldn't have scored  the chance Darren Bent missed against Portsmouth in January.
