Harry Redknapp has spoken about his return to the club and how he won the fans over.
Harry, who will have been back at Pompey for a year on thursday, told the Mirror;
"I don't think there has been a better calendar year for me than this year. It has been great.
"I'm loving it - it couldn't have gone better.
"We have had a great start to the season. If we can hang in there and finish somewhere up near the top it will be great. That is what we are all aiming for.
'Who knows where I could be this time next year? I signed a three-year contract in the summer and hopefully I will still be here.
'But you just don't know what could happen tonight, tomorrow or any other day.
'This is the most satisfying thing I've ever done. I took the challenge on when it would have been easy to do nothing.
'People told me I was off my head when I came back here. They said there was no chance of keeping us up. A lot of the supporters were not happy when I came back but others knew Pompey were doomed without me. And by the end of the season I'd won them all over.
'There were a lot of people waiting for me to fail. But I didn't.
'Now things are a bit different. The atmosphere is better, there's a better squad of players and we've had a great start to the season.'
In the Vital Pompey poll
60% have forgiven him
26% have forgiven but not forgotten
14% have yet to forgive him
That means that Harry has the backing of 86% of all Pompey fans.
