Start always vital - Harry

Harry Redknapp has underlined the importance of our positive start to the season.

We made it three wins in three with Sunday's 2-1 victory at West Ham to go back to the top of the Barclays Premier League on goal difference from Chelsea.

It's also our best start since the double season when Bill Nicholson's greats reeled off 11 wins on their way to the title.

"It gives you that confidence to start with," said Harry. "When you have a bad start you win a game, lose a game, draw a game and you look at the league table and don't seem to move.

"We had that last season. We a had a terrific run when I came in but we were still stuck in a relegation battle even after Christmas.

"Once you have a bad start it can be very difficult but if you have a good start, it can set you up for the season.

"We are up there and that's where you want to be.

"I'm not saying we're going to finish in the top four but we have good players and a good squad and if they keep fit and keep showing the same attitude we'll do well this season."
