Portsmouth head coach Harry Redknapp left his team over the weekend and was given total control of Tottenham after the club fired head coach Juande Ramos. It didn't take long for Redknapp to turn things around as he was in charge as Tottenham won 2-0 at Bolton on Sunday.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy felt a change had to be made after the team started with just two points in eight matches, their worst start in 100 years." At this stage, where Tottenham is we need a fighter, we need someone who has inspiration," Levy said, "I have had various conversations with Harry over a number of years. He almost got here, but now he is here. I'm a Spurs fans and it's a sickening feeling seeing Spurs where they are and we need to get back up where we belong which is near the top."

The move from Portsmouth is a shock considering Redknapp had a big contract and was making progress. "I decided it was a good move for everybody, for Portsmouth as well in the long term and they have a terrific compensation deal when things were a bit tight," Redknapp said. "I just thought maybe it was time to move on and Tottenham are a big, big club. I thought 'Let's just give it a go before it is too late." It is expected that Tottenham will be a more serious player in the Soccer Betting Premier League this season and in future seasons with Redknapp at the helm. "In Harry, we are accepting with his appointment that now is the right time for us to move back to a more traditional style of football management at our club," Levy said. "One which we believe will be capable of initiating our climb back up the Premiership table and to maintaining our challenge in the UEFA, Carling and FA Cup competitions."

After Redknapp left Portsmouth they appointed Tony Adams as manager on Tuesday. He had been the assistant to Redknapp at Portsmouth since 2006. "I would have hated to sit at home and watch them give the job to someone else," Adams said. "I think it's my time; I think I'm ready. It's fantastic. I'm very honored, it's a great opportunity and one I would be mad to turn down.

It's like Christmas. It's the best job in the world. I'm scared to bits, of course, but another bit of me is really excited." Adams was at the helm in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Fulham. "We've got some great players here at Portsmouth and I've been kind of responsible, with Harry, for bringing them to the club," Adams said.
