Redknapp Said The Pressure Was All On Us! Updated

Redknapp Said The Pressure Was All On Us!  Updated

I seem to remember a certain Harry Redknapp saying before the game that QPR were under no pressure, and that was all on our lads. Seems our lads responded to it and stepped up a gear to cope with it.

Quotes from the Daily Mail.

Quite funny really as he nows describes Gabby Agbonlahor's goal on the stroke of half time as knocking his pressureless QPR 'for six'.

Don't normally bother with the opposition manager's ranting, but given 'appy 'arry so likes us, I will.

'If we had come in 4-0 up half time it would have been about right wouldn't it? It was so one sided. But they got a lift from the equaliser after being absolutely awful first half and probably couldn't believe their luck. That goal knocked us for six.'

Bitter? Shame...

Update:

Just got to add this in as it's even more comical.

Source: Fulham Chronicle.

"I lost Bobby (Zamora) at half time and that was a real blow for us. When he came off, I thought (t)it would give us a problem. We never had that focal point to hold the ball up. Rob Green was also ill and had to go home this morning."

Erm...Zamora left at half time, AFTER we had already equalised.

When did QPR score, 23 minutes. Who did we lose on 20 minutes, meaning the replacement had to get up to speed with the game and it was Bennett who unfortunately played the sloppy pass for their goal and who wasn't quick enough to get the block in on Jenas. (fair do's his assist for Weimann's goal balanced that out!).

But talk about scraping the barrell for excuses.

You lost, man up. Who you going to blame next, your dog? Maybe not.

Did he fall asleep or something? Judging by BBC Sport and checking every 5 minutes on the score, they barely had the ball let alone deserved to be 4-0 up.

To be fair we only had one shot in the first half and that was the goal lol Guzan also pulled off 2-3 utterly beautiful saves so QPR could've gone in ahead - but that's why you have keepers, to keep them out! :-)

Guzman made 3 world class saves but we were by far the better side except for a few minutes after they scored against the run of play. Harry must have been watching the same game as some of the "fans" that phoned in to tom Ross after the game

Arry, wot a plonker you are. Great to see the fight in our team to come from being behind and getting pegged back at 2-2 to actually kick on and win it. 3 more wins and avoid defeat against little Dave Whelans little team and we are sound. On recent evidence I am much more optimistic. Fleet Street and Sky Sports News, you wont be seeing the demise of our great club just yet. UTV.

Oh for sure Guzan kept us in it first half but that is football isn't it? We scored more than them in the end, simples! But they could have been out of sight if not for brad.

I don't think it's as cut and dry as Harry would have it. We created great openings and chances in the first half and we didn't take them. That goal on the stroke of half time did for us and we never really recovered performance-wise. In the second half I thought we were out played, simple as really.

Can't believe anyone can argue that we didn't deserve to be behind at the break! they battered us first half tbh and but for guzan it could have been 3-0 easy, that Bosingwa freekick was really unlucky not to go in aswell because it hit the inside of the post and then it got scrambled out somehow!! however second half different story and the Townsend (who's going to be a great player) was against the run of play!! i think scoring our third goal was where we really showed character!!!
