Where will Harry Redknapp rank among Tottenham’s “Wenger Era” managers?

Will he be as successful as Jol or as useless as Santini?

Martin Jol and Jacques Santini

As well as having Chris Hughton and David Pleat (three times!) in as caretaker manager, Spurs have had seven full-time managers prior to Harry Redknapp in the twelve years that Arsene Wenger has been in charge of Arsenal.

Here are how those managers rank in order of points accumulated per league game as well as their league win percentage at the club:

Rank Manager Points per game Win Percentage
1 Martin Jol 1.51 42%
2 Gerry Francis 1.39 36%
3 George Graham 1.31 34%
4 Glenn Hoddle 1.28 36%
5 Christian Gross 1.26 33%
6 Jacques Santini 1.18 27%
7 Juande Ramos 1.17 29%

The big question is: how does Redknapp compare with those former Spurs bosses? Give us your prediction with a comment below on where ‘Arry will rank (1-8) on points per game at the end of his White Hart Lane tenure. The answer will probably be revealed on October 25 2009!

    I,m not sure what the end of the day will bring. But as long as HR give us something to fight for. For example maintaining our recent domestic and over all European trophy superiority from the Arse Will do for starters

    I wouldn’t think that ‘Arry himself is that bothered. His God is money and the accumulation of it and whatever happens at Spurs he will be ok.

    Yeah he can’t lose. If they go down, he’ll say he tried and will blame it on the squad and if they stay up he’ll claim he worked hard with very little. Then he’ll remind of this season forever more.

    Tottenham already had a good squad, a bit of a patchwork quilt but good enough to not be bottom. The team lost confidence in Ramos and weren’t prepared to fight for him.

    I reckon second – better than everyone but Jol.

    He will keep them up but not much more. Spuds will be like the Hammers a good mid table team who on their day can turn it on and be a threat to anyone. But dont have the stamina to make it into the top 6!

    only difference is harry will be given money to put ateam together rather than sell the players he wants, by that i mean rio didn’t want to leave the hammers if they had held on to their players then they might of been where utd &chelsea are ?

    They’ll have to sell any really good players just like they had to sell Berbatov and Keane. The rest will only make Spurs as good as those fighting for the scraps around them. It’s the hierarchy of the EPL and Spurs won’t break it.
