Has Harry Been Caught?
After a fantastic result yesterday, Harry did two things. The first was to calm the fans expectations and secondly to slate the documentary being shown on Tuesday evening.
Bellow are comments by Harry Redknapp to the News of the World;
'I think they're trying to say they've caught me tapping up a player - but it's pathetic,'
'What really happened is that Todd's agent, Peter Harrison, asked me what I thought about the player,' he recalls.
'I said: 'I like Toddy. I'd have him in my team.'
'It was just a quick conversation, not of my making, and the sort of chat managers, directors and agents have all the time.
'If that's seen to be tapping up it's ridiculous, unreal.'
'I always try to help people if I can - so even though I was busy, I said I could spare him a few minutes,' said Redknapp.
'Now I wish I hadn't bothered.'
'I have never taken a bung in my life and never will. It can't happen these days,' he added.
'How can you take a payment like that, especially from a player's agent? These agents are so close to their players they tell them everything.
'How could you give a player a rollicking in training or during a match when he's got that on you?'
'... after all this nonsense that's been leaked out we will finally see what they've actually got,' he said.
'I promise you everyone will see they have nothing on me.'
Do you think that Harry will be found guilty? I believe that "Panorama" has speculative evidence against him but nothing set in stone.
Vital Pompey bought you the Kevin Bond rumour and that now looks a real possibility.
