Now Sol's at it too!

Now Sol's at it too!

Pompey captain Sol Campbell has followed the example of his Pompey team mate Niko Kranjcar by backing his club boss Harry Redknapp for the England job with what he has told The News: 'Harry's a top manager and has done a great job at Portsmouth.

'I'm sure he'd entertain it, but the FA have got to approach him and see what happens.

'People see him as a Del Boy just because he's from East London but he's got a lot more to him than that.

'That said, I think a lot of players can relate to that.

'I think if he's got the right people around him, sure, it could work'.

As I have previously said in an article about Redknapp's credentials - here, this and his backing for the job seem to be gathering pace, even his own players are backing him.

Fabio Coppello is currently 'the bookies favourite' for the job and now Redknapp has moved up to joint second favourite.

Depending on what route the FA take - will they go for an English manager again, or will they opt for a foreign name again - he is looking a strong candidate to get the job, so my worries for Pompey losing him are growing more and more... I cannot stress enough that I just keep praying they will not go for him, although I do know he would do a fantastic job.

i think Harry may well be a 'bit too much of a del boy' for the FA.

I think I'd quite like HR to be manager, he's a great personality (unlike his dick dead son) and really knows his stuff!!

what has harry actully won as a manager? he has wo promotian a coupl of time - but other than that, he has done little. i dont wat to take anything away from him, as there is no-one i would rathe have at pompey - but he has rarely been ailed for his manegerial skills, and it isreally only this season that he has been suggested, whilst the likes of mourinho have been mentioed for a long time. i REALLY dont want harry to be a managr, partly because it coud ruin us, and patly becuase i think it could ruin him!

I would hate Harry to get the job and then fail, he is a great club manager and maybe the England job would be too much. I dont think the FA see him as the new manager and he represents too much of a risk, and he could end up like Keegan did and none of us would want that too happen.

I don't think it is down to what he has won though pompeycarpet because to be fair he has never been at a club that could realistically win leagues etc, but what he has done is mold together real teams who like to entertain (after sven and mcclaren how good would that be?) + is a great man manager. That is what England need more than anything, someone to get the troops fired up and proud.

I think he would be fantastic there, imagine the comaraderie he would create in the team at a tournament!! That said, Please dont go Harry!! Can you imagine another Perrin stepping in?

Vital View - League 2, 18th February 2017

Doncaster's winless run went on but they remain three points ahead of Plymouth. Carlisle are a further two points back. Leyton Orient and Newport hold the unwanted relegation places.

Video - Barnet 1-1 Pompey

A late Barnet goal looked as though it would end Pompey's unbeaten run but Conor Chaplin proved the saviour when he scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point in a 1-1 draw.
