I have just watched match of the day and seen Harry Redknapp having his say when talking to The BBC, a full interview is available on the bbc.co.uk, after the game - and I could not agree more!
He said that he was disappointed with the amount of people that left early and refused to stay for he lap of honour, with him believing that basically most of these were people that had 'jumped on the bandwagon in recent years' - something that have been my exact words to many people for some time…
I wonder just how many of these people that left early have got tickets for the cup final - and if they really do deserve them, and also just how many of these 'fans' have been interested in us for any long period of time?
I was told that some were giving Redknapp grief behind the dugout, something that he must have heard as he got up and simply shrugged his shoulders then sat down again, others also told me that some people were booing the players as they went round on the lap of honour, sorry but the people doing this are ungrateful b******s!
I may have been disappointed with some of the performances in recent weeks, and been heavily critical after the Boro game, but that is because I did not feel their was any effort at all their. However I have taken stock, reflected on this and when all is said and done as I have said earlier how could you be disappointed with the season, particularly when you think about some of the tripe we have had to watch over the years… maybe some people have been spoilt and do not appreciate what it really means to be a Portsmouth Football Club fan?
Yep, I am fully behind Redknapp with this rant, I might not always agree with him but I think he deserves credit where it is due for having the balls to come out and say what he did.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
