It's all about respect without fear. That's Harry Redknapp's message to the fans as he boards the coach and heads for Wembley for this afternoon's (Sunday) Carling Cup Final.
The Spurs boss presents a candid assessment of the task ahead of his players in the latest issue of hotspur magazine. And he knows that our lads can worry United on a number of fronts.
"You have to be careful," he warns. "If you open up too much you will be absolutely ripped to pieces. But we also have good players that they will be concerned about.
"They are possibly the best team in Europe but we'll be getting at them in all departments. You have to be realistic, look at what a good side they are...and make sure you have the shape about you that can win the game."
And Harry, speaking in hotspur's rapidly-selling Carling Cup special, warns: "We won't sit back - we will have a go. We have good attacking players. We are ready for it."
It's all in our new-look official magazine that's received a great reaction from Spurs fans. And there is so much more in there for you to enjoy.
