ALL SYSTEMS GO - HARRY

Harry Redknapp had a spring in his step after training on Friday and insisted: "It's all systems go."
The manager was delighted to welcome back Younes Kaboul and Emmanuel Adebayor into the fold for training and both are now back in the frame for Sunday's huge game against Blackburn at the Lane.
We go into the weekend sitting fifth in the Premier League, sitting six points behind Arsenal in third, but with a game in hand, three behind fourth-placed Newcastle and one ahead of in-form Chelsea.
Both Arsenal and Newcastle face tricky away matches at Stoke and Wigan respectively on Saturday, Chelsea take on QPR in Sunday's early kick-off before our 4pm encounter against Rovers.
"I was delighted this morning," said Harry after Friday's session at Spurs Lodge.
"There are one or two players back and we look strong again.
"It's all systems go from now on. We are positive. We are looking forward to the last four games, we are in a great situation where we can still make Champions League and we are ready to go for it."
Harry is well aware of Blackburn's perilous position and it was put to him that Steve Kean's side will be scrapping for their lives at the Lane.
"We are going to be scrapping for our lives as well, arent we?" he responded. "We have to be haven't we?
"So no, we will both be scrapping. If we scrap at our best we should win because we are higher than them in the league. We have to scrap as hard as they do and the exra quality should come through.
"We are still bang in there. We are not down or despondent. We have four games to now try to finish in the top four, that's what we have to try to do."
