Harry Talks Signings!

Harry Redknapp interview;

'I'm not sure how much of the World Cup I'll even see,' he told BBC Sport.

'I don't need to watch it for scouting or anything - I know who I want and now the hard work of getting them starts.'
Redknapp met with Gaydamak in Tel Aviv to make plans for the new season, including potential targets and the club's budget.

'I can't sit about and wait for the World Cup to finish,' he said, 'I have to get out there and make my moves now.

'Just on Wednesday, myself and Peter met with a good player who we'd very much like to sign for a chat and hopefully we'll get something done there.

'I won't be naming them, but it just shows that we're trying to get things done here.'

'There's no doubt that this is a club on the rise, and I think players can see that,' said Redknapp.

'The form we showed at the back-end of last season was not just critical in keeping us up, it was a sign of where we are heading.

'Everything about this club is positive now. The future is very bright.'
But Redknapp said: 'First of all, I have not told anyone outside of the club my targets, so how the papers think they know is anyone's guess.

'Secondly, I will endeavour to do my dealings outside of the public eye, and only then will I talk about it. Otherwise you run the risk of jeopardising the transfer, raising other teams' interest or prompting a club to up their price.

'Make no mistake, we have our price of the players we want and we won't be paying over the odds. Yes, we have money to spend, but clubs either take what we offer, or they don't and we move onto the next name on our list.'

'Clearly, the budget is a bit bigger than what we're used to down here, but it's far from inexhaustable - and nowhere near Roman Abramovich's figures,' he insists.

'Alexandre's come in, he's positive and wants to take the club forward.

'When I come up with a player I like, and if the deal suits the sort of money we're willing to spend, then he'll back me.'

12th - 15th, which is better and a bit of breathing space from the drop zone, but higher is unlikely and very, very optimistic.

Nothing less than a champions league place and an F.A. Cup win. We have the greatest manager that has ever lived in the whole history of association football. Anyone else with a silly question they want answered?
