Harry Redknapp: Ward Prowse verdict


In a recent interview with the website Stats Perform , the ex-West Ham manager and full-time legend Harry Redknapp believes that the Irons will in fact improve with the addition of James Ward-Prowse.

When asked about Ward-Prowse, Redknapp said “I love Ward-Prowse. He’s a good player and looks a good character and a good lad.

So yeah, they could be a stronger team this year, with the money they’ve raised. They’ve lost one outstanding player but they’ve [potentially] got [some] very good players in with that money.

“I think it’s good business for West Ham. I think West Ham will be fine.”

He had an interesting response regarding our current manager David Moyes on the criticism he received throughout last season despite winning our first piece of silverware in decades, Redknapp replied:

 “That’s football, isn’t it? That’s the way the game goes. It’s a results business now, you don’t get long.

“You know, back in the day, West Ham had four managers in something like 75 years. Ron Greenwood, John Lyall, Ted Fenton before that. That was how the game was.

“Now, you get 20-odd minutes! You lose a few games, you lose four, five, six games, you’re in trouble. You’ve got people calling for your head.

“David is a good manager. He’s been around long enough, he knows his situation, he knows he needs results. There’s no reason they can’t have a good season.”


Nicely put Harry !
