Redknapp.....

FUCK DREWBACCA | smh fuck REVS to....

Redknapp is a very good manager, exaggerating Bale's quality a bit though I think.

Trying to pile the pressure on Daniel Levy aswell, making him aware of his [Redknapp's] expectations of the Spurs squad and the position that they'd be in if he were still in the job.

They're all different players

Ronaldo isn't a central striker, Messi drops deeper and is less advanced than any of them strikers so in reality he isn't really a standard striker. RVP is almost a 9 1/2. I haven't seen too much of him for United, only a few games but if he played like he did for Arsenal before last season he'll probably be dropping abit deep also and getting more involved in the play.

To be honest Falcao is the only conventional striker in that list and if you were to say who's the best straight out number 9 I would say him. I don't see the point in comparing him to the rest as they're different players though

Thats just me

Also Redknapp is a good man manager, not a good tactician so take that as you want. If that makes him a good 'manager' overall then I disagree
October 17, 2012 @ 00:47:25
@brun Why do you say Redknapp isn't a very good tactician?

He is probably the best English manager around at the moment, wouldn't you say?

People would point to Roy Hodgson and say how well he has done with England, which he has, but I'd be surprised if six months ago that you'd rather have him than Harry as England manager.

Who would you say is better than Redknapp (overall) or at least up there with him?

I'm not disagreeing with what you say, just looking for your opinion.

On numerous occasions last season Spurs had players playing in the wrong position, for example VDV wide when he himself stated he's more effective in the middle. I know Modric was there but Krancjar was played out of position also - Questionable choices like that aren't made by the top top managers imo, Redknapp was changing or was not changing formations leading to poor results at times. For example Spurs' direct play would lead to them leading but then they wouldn't sit back or switch to a 4-3-3 to maintain possession and stop the opposition from coming back

Hodgson is actually underrated, don't forget that Fulham's sqaud was nowhere near as good as Spurs'. Hodgson's ventures in Sweden have proven his tactical knowledge.

With Redknapp I think his Spurs side were lucky to be blessed with good pace on both sides and upfront in the form of Defoe and Ade who has quite decent pace. Spurs could play an extremely direct style of play that most teams aren't capable of defending against, defenders need pace and/or positional awareness and discipline not to be dragged out of position. I don't think it's some amazingly complex system Redknapp was working

I'm not saying he's a poor manager, just that he's not the best tactician, I don't think he's an elite manager. It's subjective but I prefer a tactician over a man manager, a tactician usually has pragmatism alongside his style of play as he pursues a vision of a type of football.

Best English manager? Probably Redknapp to be honest, but doesn't he win by default, like I say Hodg isn't that bad but there aren't tons of English managers. Championship managers are decent but obviously they aren't tested against the best sides

HMMMMM what are some your opinions on whats happening with portugal?
October 18, 2012 @ 04:37:34
giroud? not right now man...his strike partner podolski is playing better
October 18, 2012 @ 13:31:01
I'm wondering what your reasoning is behind some of your choices

Do you just get the stats and then put the strikers according to that? It's puzzling
October 18, 2012 @ 16:40:36
How would i rank them according to stats? total goal count? shots on target? shots off target? shooting accuracy? chance conversion? clear-cut chances? or how about goals via clear-cut chances? You also have to take into account that many of these players play in different leagues.

Do you have a better list? Feel free to enlighten me.
October 18, 2012 @ 18:11:07
Do you now see why I haven't added a list?

It's way too hard to compare, too many variables to consider
October 18, 2012 @ 18:44:37
Well whats so puzzling to you then? My list is composed of strikers i would want on my imaginary team. 1 being the first choice, and so on. Just like every other list out there.
October 18, 2012 @ 19:05:05
