Harry: Couldn’t Give a Monkey’s

So what do we make of Harry Redknapp joining West Ham’s biggest rivals?!

If I were a Spurs fan – perish the thought – I’d be experiencing a mix of emotions but overall recognise that he would save the club from relegation.

If I were a Portsmouth fan I’d be very angry indeed and feel totally let down. If I were a Portsmouth player like Defoe, James or Crouch I would feel totally deflated. I wish West Ham were playing them this afternoon!

And as a West Ham fan? You know what? I couldn’t give a monkey’s arse.

NB I’m flying to Israel at 2.30 so apologies if there is a delay in approving comments.

    See Harry says he’s happy to finally have a chance at a “big” club. So he’s going to be quickly disillusioned.

    What you doing in Israel? If you’re here for the Man U game I can let you know where to see it.

    I recently went to an evening featuring, amongst others, Billy Bonds. He was most disparaging about our ‘arry, describing him as a ‘spiv’ and stating that what is clear about arry is that if there is something in it for him, then he’ll do it. arry is basically a second hand car salesman made good in my opinion and i think he has had more than his share of luck along the way. I personally hope that he falls flat on his arse at totts, since a) I am enjoying the sideshow of them struggling at the moment and b) I firmly believe that redknapp is way way over-rated and it would be quite a pleasure to watch him fail miserably.
    I wonder just how many romantics there remain in terms of the retro obsessed at Upton Park? arry as been lauded as something of a folk hero for years by these people who, it seems to me, have totally rose coloured specs where he is concerned. arry did ok for us, but make no mistake about it, arry did ok by west am as well! ee always duz.

    Are you flying out there to rubber stamp Harry’s deal?

    “Some of dem a pirates” like Kamoze sang.
    Some of them rob ships outside Africa. And some rob the football industry. Both of them are seen as heroes by many…
    If you can join Southhampton from Ports and then go back, you certainly can join Tottscum as a former West Ham man. I don’t care.
    Redknapp is an old schoolman and he can – as most can – see that Tottscum will start to win and get a new contract. Players needed to see a new (even so old) face. And he is not stupid.

    But a day like this I’m even more happy that we got Zola!! He knows the football of the future!

    I generally find the guy irritating and up his own backside.

    I’m with you Iain, I couldn’t care less who he manages or what he does with his life.

    For years I’ve expressed my dissatisfaction of him as a person and a football manager – when 95% of the population loved him and talked about what a great football man he is….

    He screwed a proper West Ham legend (billy bonds) over, he joined Southampton from Portsmouth, then had the audacity to go back to Portsmouth!! He said when he was at West Ham he’d never manage another club when he left, he said the same thing at Portsmouth, the guy is just a total contradiction in terms and a complete hypocrit.

    But you know, for most peole he’s good old ‘arry Redknapp – a real down to earth football manager… he’s great… he’s the best…. whatever….

    I’m fed up wasting my energy telling people what a moron he is, so this is the last time I will talk about him. I have no want, care or need to talk about the man. He’s an idiot.

    why not take a trip to norway

  7. EastHammer says:

    What can we say?

    The man has never had any loyalty for anyone and never will. He has always looked after number one. His stints at Southampton and Portsmouth should tell everyone the type of shallow man he is. He will get his due, hopefully he will take the scum down and get what he deserves.

    This morning he said Pompey needed the 5 million, but Peter Storrie has said they tried everything to make him stay but (I quote Storrie) “apparently Tottenham is one of a few clubs he would leave Portsmouth for”. Since when did Redknapp have any affiliation with the scum? Storrie has been bitten by the dodgey one.

    It is shame he has this image of a straight up genuine guy. Redknapp is the lowest type of man you can get.

    see the lovely lakes

  9. chris says:

    He loves a £………………………………spuds will stay up now worse luck.

  10. simo says:

    arry is now giving it large sayin spurs were his boyhood team, give me a break.
    heard it all before, all about the money. pompey fans must be right pissed off and rightly so.

  11. Gorgonzola says:

    SO MUCH FOR ALL THE HAMMERS FANS WANTING HARRY BACK!

    WHEN WE WERE 0-1 DOWN TO MACCLESFIELD IN THE CUP PEOPLE WERE SHOUTING AT CURBISHLEY “THER’S ONLY ONE HARRY REDKNAPP”

    THE GUY HAS NO LOYALTY AND IS AS DODGY AS THEY COME.

    JUST IMAGINE IF SPURS STILL GET RELEGATED…WONDERFUL! TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE.

  12. Goatygav says:

    Could this be another mission for “Agent Redknapp?”

    Seriously – I think we all know where our ‘Arry’s loyalties lie – to the highest bidder.

    While I feel for the Pompey faithful they have a solid backer in Gaydamak and he’ll do right by them – they’ll get a decent manager and may even be better off.

    As for the Spuds – they’ll stay up and Redknapp’s reputation as a miracle worker will be enhanced. It’s going to make for an interesting couple of games at WHL and UP.

    COME ON U IRONS!!!! Lookin’ forward to a potential classic later this afternoon.

    LETS HOPE HE TAKES THEM DOWN !

  14. bloody Limey says:

    Deeply upset about ‘Arry going to the Totscum . Just when it wasstarting to look like Spuds would actually go down, they buggar it up for us!! DOH!

  15. pjd says:

    never liked the man ,never will.his football ideas are ok but anyone who shafts his best mate billy bonds is a piece of shit. i wonder how many of the hammers fans who loved him feel now after telling everyone that he has always been a spurs fan.bollocks he has,he’s a spurs fan now cos they are paying him big bucks to save their sad delusional team from where they belong.second hand car dealing spiv. the only thing he has to his credit is DI CANIO ,but he’s still a tossrag

  16. WE SHOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR HARRYS CONTRIBUTION OVER THE YEARS YOU CANT BLAME HIM TO WANT TO WORK AT A BIG CLUB HIS BOYHOOD CLUB WE SHOULD WISH HIM LUCK AND HOPE HE BRINGS SUCCESS AND NOT BE BITTER AND TWISTED LIKE A DOG WITH ONE LEG OUCH

  17. HAMED says:

    at last someone with a bit of thought not the usual drivel you usually get from west ham fans most of them are bitter and twisted so diane how old are you id love to meet you . im hamed i live in forest gate can i have your number xx

  18. brooking still the best says:

    Arry Redcrap is a total scum bag, always was and always will be. He often tells stories of how he fitted in with Bobby Moore. Funny how Bobby Moore had never talked about him? Then no true legend of the Hammers never has, brooking and bonds, two men who wouldnt slag anyone off has never said a good word about him and that tells all you need to know about the man.
    Don’t forget, when he left the Hammers as manager, we nearly folded with the dodgy deals he done. 33 players a season went through the doors on average when he was here, knowing Arry, he got a cut out of all the deals. Now he is at spurs, maybe we can see him for what he is. a true wan$er

  19. Dave Hall says:

    No one is bitter Hamed,people are telling it as it is. The guy was for some reason praised by some fans and they wanted him back. But look deeper and you will see many didnt want him back. I dont care where he goes, but that doesnt mean I have to like the guy or even have a good word to say about him. You lot may hope that one day we dont have to say to you…we told you so.

  20. pjd says:

    diane ,redknapp said recently that arsenal were his boyhood club,now its spurs,who’s next.the man is full of shit.as for being grateful dont make me laugh.oh hamed get a life

  21. wellsie says:

    I like Arry and believe he will do a good job for the Spuds…….looking forward to him getting some of his Portsmouth players come the January transfer window…it would be something to see Sol Campbell run out as a Spuds player again…..Should get some reaction from the fans !!

  22. Reg Blood's Bubbles says:

    I would trust the bloke has far as I could chuck a lighthouse.
    There are some very deluded and blinkered fans out there who think that we owe him something. The bloke is a spiv – and a not very good one at that.

  23. EastHammer says:

    Hamed you imbecile, this aint a dating site you desperate gok.
