Re: Redknapp sacked
Allegedly Redknapp used to drive into Chadwell Heath when the youths and reserves were playing in the 60's, open his boot and it would be full of Fred Perry shirts that he would flog to them.

He just has taken full advantage of a culture of taking money wherever and whenever he could, I would imagine most managers have been up to it over the years. Not that it makes it right but you need someone willing to pay them for whatever for it to happen.

Re: Redknapp sacked
I don't understand why you need to give a bonus to a manager not to spend money.
Surely the Chairman just requires every transfer to be agreed by him.

The stories of Redknapp extorting money from small clubs in relation to preseason games have been mentioned for years and tells you all you need to know about him.

Re: Redknapp sacked
>>> shame he spunked the Rio money and sold him because he earnt a £300k 'bonus' from Brown, but he did turn out some lovely footballing sides.

Just to correct that slightly. I think the £300k bonus was only offered by Brown if Harry didn't spend the Rio money - Harry of course couldn't resist it and lost the bonus.

Re: Redknapp sacked
My MATE is an Accountant and used to do the books of a non league side that who will remain nameless… when my mate was going through their books there was a couple of misc’ payments that didn’t add up… turns out they were nice INCENTITIVES to Mr Redknapp and Mr Lampard (Snr) to bring a decent West Ham pre season side over as they threatened to just unload the youth on them… Oh and Redknapp got more than Lampard (Snr)… crooked bastards…. BUT… I’ll forgive him as I said I loved the shit he churned out then… there was never ever a Boring day with him in charge

I'd happily give Louise a quickie. Only with me it's never quick. It would be eternal.

See what I did there?

Not a happy time for Harry and his boy.

Re: Redknapp sacked
Harry Redknapp says there is "every chance" his managerial career is over after he was sacked by Birmingham.

The 70-year-old former Bournemouth, West Ham, Portsmouth, Southampton, Tottenham and QPR boss left the Blues after 13 matches as manager.

They are one place off the bottom of the Championship table after six successive defeats.

"I doubt very much whether it will happen again now," Redknapp told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek programme.

"I'm a realist. If I could help someone somewhere, help a young manager, I'd love that. I did it at Derby with Darren Wassall and had a great time."

Managerial exits & long wait for a goal
Redknapp took charge at Birmingham in April and they won their last two matches of the season to avoid relegation on the final day.

But he was dismissed after Saturday's 3-1 home defeat by Preston North End.

Redknapp said: "They've got a squad that is probably as good as they have had for a long time. I still feel they are capable of challenging for the play-offs.

"I genuinely believe they have seven forward players who are as good as any in the Championship, who unfortunately haven't been playing because of injury.

"They are going to be fantastic players, Premier League players for sure, hopefully with Birmingham one day."

Redknapp described the club's fans as "incredible" and said they "deserved success".

He added: "I'm sure there are great times ahead. I wish the club every success. Given time, we would have turned it round but whoever goes in is going to take over a good group."

'It's a shame I didn't get to see it through'

Redknapp was one of three EFL managers to leave his job on Saturday, with Chesterfield sacking Gary Caldwell, and Port Vale parting company with Michael Brown.

"I feel more sorry for the other lads in the lower leagues who lost their jobs," he said.

"It's difficult to get back on the ladder for them, whereas I have been lucky enough to have been on that ladder and had a great time."

Birmingham signed 14 players in the summer, four of whom joined on deadline day.

Redknapp said: "I took over a team that got out of trouble on the last day of last season, they'd had two wins out of 25, they weren't good enough. It needed change.

"But unfortunately I couldn't get the players in that I was after and it went down to deadline week before I got a big influx.

"Then it was six players making their debut on one day, then three games in that week, so even working on the training ground was difficult.

"It's a shame I didn't have the chance to see it through but time is something you don't get an awful lot of."

Re: Redknapp sacked
Mike - Yep, they are fools too. Maybe my point is he cunted off all the old players, vowed to bring his own ones in and things would change, but it never. Same as he did at QPR. Since he did bring all those players in you'd think they would have gave him another month. I bet he wasn't expecting the sack at this point.

Re: Redknapp sacked
PD... but idiots the Brum owners who let him bring all those players in only to chuck him weeks later

Private Dancer 9:13 Sun Sep 17
Re: Redknapp sacked
What a fucking racket. So he got a mil for 'keeping them up' and most likely around another mil pay off. We will never see the end of this charleton until he takes his last breath. He's now done what he's done to most of his other clubs, ie, bring in a load of players who are now left for the next gaffer to sort out.

At least we won't have to keep hearing what time he has to leave the house in the morning for training....for now.
