Redknapp sure to get straight-talking from Spurs scout Brown

Tottenham scout Mick Brown is well known for his straight-talking.

The Daily Mail says when he was first appointed manager of Sunderland, Roy Keane is said to have asked Brown, the hugely experienced scout he recruited from Manchester United, to find him eight players.

"Eight is impossible," Brown, now at Tottenham, is said to have replied. "Two is difficult enough and if you want a decent left back just forget it. There aren't any out there."
