Dr Harry Rednife


DECEMBER 2005

Dr Harold 'Ripper' Redknapp has been given the task of putting the heart back into the Portsmouth Football team, so lacking in blood and guts and moral fibre, this astute physician will undertake the task with some technical assistance. Dr Redknapp first graduated from the School of Medicine at Bournemouth where he progressed to the London College of Surgeons at West Ham. He received Honours whilst at Portsmouth prior to operating on Death Row further down the coast.

This is likely to be a slow operation, performed under general anaesthetic. Dr Redknapp spoke optimistically about our patients chances of survival 'I will inject new blood into them, get the legs pumping and give it the heart that it once had. If I couldn't do the job, I wouldn't be here'. Chairman Milan Mandaric endorsed..'This is a professional man, one of the best in the business. I have brought him here to do a difficult job, to breathe new life into our frail patient. I am confident that the operation will be a successful one'

So what’s gone wrong? I asked around a few Pompy mates and you all seemed ecstatic that Harry was brought back and now everyone seems to have turned against him.

ONly the vocal ones are against him, the majority still know that he is the only one to keep us up or bring us back, so unless the fans stop the peti squabbles and back him we are doomed, as im sure he will walk if he feels the fans are against him. Then What? i dont see the Managers queueing to get in

Fair enough. From the outside it seemed like the damage was really done before Harry got there.

Still would love Harry to stay but think he might be forced to walk the plank come May. Remember Milan Mandaric only has 50% say now.

It's a shame then that the press use a vocal minority to paint a picture that all fans want him out.

Personally I have a soft spot for Harry and respect the fratton faithful a lot for being constantly the loudest bunch of home supporters around. I personally hope you guys can stay up but if I’m honest am beginning to think it very unlikely.

Finest in the Football League

I don't hide how highly I rate Chaplin. I feel he's the best striker in league two - better than most in league one. Cook said he is the best goalscorer outside the Premier League.
