A tribute to Harry Redknapp
Unfortunately for us though, Harry was never truly part of our team. Despite his pledges to the club, after he fell out of the running for the England job and rejected the Newcastle post, I couldn't help but fear any team with a better infrastructure that sniffs around Harry would have him off in a shot. Harry was never one for quashing rumours linking him away from Fratton Park, instead reminding the club so often how we were forever in his debt. He took us from the bottom of Division 1 to the Premiership and then saved us, 'when they were gone', at the bottom of the Premiership and boy did we know about it.
So Harry you've left us once again and best of luck in the future. It's just a shame that as you were walking out of the door you couldn't keep that mouth of yours shut, and although we would have been sad we could have held you in high regard for all you did for us. However the manner in which you left belittled the club, the players and more importantly the fans. I'm just glad and thankful for the kind messages from fans from other teams in the Premiership who realise what a coward, a liar and an ego you are. No doubt you'll be singing your own praises once you've gotten Spurs from the bottom to middle table and scrapping for places outside of the top 6. Yes the top 6 Harry! Villa are too much of a force for you now, City have all the money in the world and the top four are so far ahead of the club you've waited for all your life, despite you claiming last season that you grew up as an Arsenal fan! But when has loyalty ever mattered to you? A leopard can never change its spots.
So this is it, the final chapter. A chance for Portsmouth Football Club to move on and out of the shadow of an ego. Thank you once again Harry but no thanks. Unfortunately you've tarnished all that you did here and it took more than just you to promote us, save us and win the F.A. Cup.
Please watch this short video I have made about Harry Redknapp. It's not your typical crass YouTube affair, I tried to put a little thought into it, but hopefully it will illustrate the good times as well as the bad.
