Boss bemoans lack of depth
Harry Redknapp has blamed a lack of personal and a raft of injuries at the club for their alarming drop in form.
Hopes of landing a Champions League place, which at one time looked an absolute certainty, now hang by a thread after their defeat to QPR on Saturday evening meant it is just one win in nine Premeir League games. Following the defeat at Loftus Road, Redknapp said: "We haven't got the biggest squad. "Chelsea made eight changes to play Arsenal and still looked good. When you look at my bench it was nowhere near. "I could not make too many changes as I only had one striker and two centre halves. If one of those got injured I was bang in trouble. I had nobody. "We were desperate." With a small squad and injuries taking their toll at the vital end to the season there will be many Spurs fans questioning the wisdom behind the departures of Robbie Keane, Peter Crouch, Roman Pavlyuchenko, Steven Pienaar, Wilson Palacios, Vedran Corluka, Sébastien Bassong, Jermaine Jenas and Jonathan Woodgate in the past 12 months, all who have either been sold or lent out. Spurs are next in action at home to Blackburn on Sunday.
