LITESPORT 50 Friday, 30 October 2009 London Lite HALLOWEEN HELLForgetthe witches... Wengers boysscare Redknapp BY GEOFF TEATHER SPURS boss Harry Redknapp stoked up the intensity of tomorrows Halloween derby against Arsenal by admitting he finds their kids scary. Redknapps comments come just days afterhiscaptainRobbieKeanesuggested Tottenham had caught up with their north London rivals -- and werent scared of them any more. Buoyed by Spurs impressive 2-0 win against Everton in the Carling Cup on Tuesday,Keanesaid:Youlookatthetwo squads and were definitely on a par. In thelastfourof fiveyearsArsenalalways mananagedtogetaheadof us,butif you look now its even. If you look at the bench we have, it is probably a little bit stronger than their bench. But Keanes boss doesnt seem quite so sure. He said today: My captain Robbie Keane said the other day he felt Totten- ham had more strength in depth than Arsenal. Well, after watching Arsenal beat Liverpool in the Carling Cup, I can tell you their kids are scary, he told The Sun. ThereasonArsenalkeepfindingthese kidsissimpletheyhavefull-timescouts invirtuallyeverycountryinEuropeand their network of talent-spotters spreads a lot further and a lot wider than that. One of the biggest success stories for home-grown talent in recent years has been Manchester United with Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and the two Neville brothers. Following United, you have to look at players who have hit the big time after being groomed at West Ham, with the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, JoeCole,MichaelCarrick,GlenJohnson and Jermain Defoe. Its a real possibility that those half- dozen will be at the World Cup. What an incredible achievement it would be for any one club to develop six players to take part in the bigest football show on earth. Its no good just looking for talented kids in the local area of clubs, either. It has now spread far beyond that -- as Arsenal have successfully proved. As if beating the Gunners away from home were not difficult enough for Spurs, they are likely to have to do so without three of their best players. TopscorerJermainDefoeissuspended, Luka Modric is still some way from a return and Aaron Lennon has an ankle injury. So David Bentley is likely to step in against his old club.

The Gunners have drawn two out of their last three matches, against West Ham and AZ Alkmaar, after throwing away the lead, despite dominating both clashes for extended periods. The skipper said: We are playing well as a team so far this season but I still think we are guilty of too many individual mistakes and I include all of us in that. We all take responsibility -- in some situations we become too easy and we have to improve that. Everyone has to be 10 out of 10 in every game if we want to win the League and we must learn from these games.
