Tottenham Hotspur open their season up tonight at Old Trafford following the postponement of their fixture last weekend due to the London riots.  They will be without Luka Modric, whose "head's not in the right place" according to Harry Redknapp.  Harry also said in his article for The Sun: "I will tell my players they have got to enjoy playing in such a fantastic stadium."

Cool, Harry....you and your players enjoy playing at Old Trafford.  Manchester United will enjoy kicking your arse and getting the 3 points.
