Sunday's encounter against West Brom underlined his point as the Baggies, desperate to hold onto their top flight status, gave everything.
Their snappy approach restricted our passing game and instead we had to fight every inch of the way for the three points.
Jamie, right in the heart of that battle, reflected: "It was a tough game, not the most beautiful game I must say, but we got the three points.
"That put us back into seventh and we're on the tails of the leaders at the head of that group, rather than being at the back of it.
"They are not always great games and you always want to put on a great performance for the fans but this time it was about grinding out a result and we did that.
"If anyone thinks these teams are going to come here and just let us play the football we want then they are in a dream world. It's never as easy as that.
"We are trying to make this place very hard to come to and get results and apart from Middlesbrough, when we all had an off day, we're doing that.
"I felt we deserved the points against Chelsea as well and this time it wasn't pretty but a great three points."
Jamie Redknapp says it isn't always possible to play our trademark passing game in the heat of battle in the Premiership.
