Redknapp bemoans missed chances

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp lambasted his players for their profligacy in front of goal after Wednesday's defeat at Blackpool.Spurs - who would have gone third in the Barclays Premier League with a victory - went down 3-1 at Bloomfield Road as Charlie Adam's penalty and further strikes from DJ Campbell and Brett Ormerod rendered Roman Pavlyuchenko's late deflected effort a mere consolation.The result was remarkable not only for the way in which it brought Tottenham back down to earth after their famous Champions League win against AC Milan last week, but also because they had so many opportunities to score over the course of the 90 minutes."We gave a penalty away under no pressure because of a scandalous challenge and then after that we can't convert chance after chance," Redknapp said. "In the second half, it was incredible watching it - missing chances from four or five yards like it was going out of fashion."You expect when you have got good strikers who are goalscorers to stick them in. "There are balls dropping onto their heads and we are waiting for them to head it into the goal from five yards out and they are not scoring."It was just unreal, but that's just how it goes - full credit to Blackpool, they have done fantastic."
