'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Redknapp rejects Toon job!

Just after publishing the 'mixed messages article' I found on setanta sports that they claim Harry Redknapp and Peter Storrie have told the media that he is staying with Pompey!

I will not quote the whole article, as for one I cannot do that and for two the main part of what that site is claiming is all we need to know...

'The duo explained that Redknapp's decision was based on his dedication to completing his project at the club.

'Redknapp also confirmed that Newcastle had made an approach for his services, the first time that any official contact had been corroborated'

The BBC, sky sports and so on are also reporting that he is staying too now...

There is however nothing on the Pompey Site so until this is the case we will not know for sure - to coin the phrase 'more to follow'...

Does this make HR a legend at the Park? I believe it does in my eyes and more than makes up for the mistake he made three years ago in going down the road. He will be popular at Sunderland tomorrow by the whole ground!!

I'm actually lost for words ........ Brilliant... all those doubters.. apparently he turned down a wonderful offer to stay .... Nobody can ever doubt his loyality again.. and I think he may now even be 'slightly' forgiven for his scummer past ;) Nice one Harry ... We our in your hands... Take us into Europe...
Chix
I also believe that HR will have been told there is money to spend in the window. Raise a glass and move on now. Lets get three points tomorrow and head on for Europe. Watch the Fred situation as well.
eastneydave
Portsmouth reportedly gave Redknapp until lunchtime on Saturday to make a decision, and he has opted to stay. Hooray for Harry...
pompeygray
Blomey Chix and I have just posted almost identical comments. ******y - cheers mate happy days eh!!
eastneydave
once there is official confirmation from pompey i will produce and article, also commenting on strong opinions that we might have shared - which i found acceptable given the fact that nothing was being said, so silence seemed to say it all... im delighted by this news, and cannoy believe it, incredible!
pompeyrug
tbh i didnt hold it against him that he went to scum - and i have often said this, but those that did/do must surely forgive this now? signings to follow in the next couple of days anyone...
pompeyrug
if the BBC says it, thats good enough for me - they dont publish speculation! Harry is clearly commited to the pompey cause - legend.
pompeycarpet
I lose fifty quid on a bet I had,and I am "happy" with that.To see him stay at your club and not go running to "the bigger club".The man that everyone likes and respects anyway,has just gone up in my estimations.Well done Portsmouth for keeping him,and as fans,you lot must be excited about whats around the corner,because he hasn't stayed for nothing.
SweetLeftFoot
Well done Harry, i must admit i thought that you might go, but there is such thing as loyalty and Harry has been quite remarkable. He is a special man and i am glad he is staying, we could never have replaced him. Lets give him the praise he deserves at Sunderland tomorrow and show how much we love him.
Owenspompey
SLF You're right; watch for a couple of big names coming our way in the next seven days.
UKTony
Look out fellas .. I'm on the Stella already... and we ain't even playing today... I just wish we were at home tomorrow .. the atmosphere would be electric ....... Harry Redknapps Blue & White Army....Harry Redknapps Blue & White Army....Harry Redknapps Blue & White Army....
Chix
Did you have a busy night then? Two happy groups today then - Pompey fans and the bookies. Make that three with the Salisbury Off licences!!
eastneydave
BBC is gospel, they NEVER report without confirmation
paultsmouth
It also gives everyone, management players and fans, a massive lift for tomorrow's game. 3 points is still important.
UKTony
There is a God. Thank you. To all those how bet on him going may you all burn in hell. Not sure where all the religious overtones are coming from but thank the heavens. HR is the best thing to happen to Pompey, underestimate that at your peril.
storagematt
Well Chix, it is after 10.30. Have one for me; I've just cracked a tooth and alcohol is off the agenda.
UKTony
It's because he read my article over at Vital Arsenal............make all cheques payable to Paul Mustchin!!! Thank you.
Rocky7
From all HR fans, thank you Mrs Redknapp, a woman always has the last word.

After 10.00 pm here in Sydney so I will now raise a drop of good Aussie plonk to his Royal Highness Sir Harry of Fratton !! and thanks for the Clean Sheet that we had all be it against the ARSE !!
pompeygray
Gray.. there may be a million miles between us.. but I'm with ya sunshine... Drink up! My round ..Happy days eh!
Chix
chix...australia is less then a million ,iles away - eve I know that!!!
pompeycarpet
a man with morals in football. Pompey is where he belongs, long may it stay that way! now someone tell me that everyone in football is only after money.
pompeycarpet
Good on yer Harry, he was right then, its not all about money, as they would have given him more in his pocket and more for players, but he has done us proud and stayed loyal to the cause. Take us on into Europe now and prove the press (Lineaker and co especially) that we are a top club as well.
blarmy
good decision - he had everything to lose and nothing to gain!
merlin
Yep Merlin you are spot one sunshine.. Harry is a Lehgend down here and now i thik he'll even be forgiven for 'going up the road' a couple of years ago..
Chix
Would have been a terrible move for him, at the moment it is the worst job going.
will it ever happen
