Jamie’s memory defies Harry’s quote

JamieFair play to Jamie Redknapp – he has a very long memory, one that goes back to beyond the days when he was inside his Mum’s womb.

For according to the Sky TV pundit – born in 1973 – he has always believed in the West Ham Way, which according to his father applied only to Ron Greenwood’s days back in the sixties, several years before Jamie was around.

He was actually born in 1973 and perhaps started understanding this stuff at around 1980 – aided presumably by his old man

Today he told the Daily Mail:“I grew up supporting West Ham and always believed in the ‘West Ham way.’” 

However, Harry has a different ‘take’ on the issue and claims such an Academy approach to things probably has changed since those days over five decades ago.

He told  www.kicca.com recently: : “They talk about the Academy but that was a long, long, long, long time ago that West Ham played this wonderful football that everyone talks about.

“We’re talking about Ron Greenwood’s days probably and in those days he had three players who played in a World Cup Final so it wasn’t difficult to play fantastic football. But also where did they finish in them years… bottom half of the league even with three World Cup players.”

Thanks Harry – NEXT

  1. Well it seems slaven greenwood lyall Bilic wants to bring it to everyone’s attention again,
    Wouldn’t it be nice to win a cup this year as well as qualify for Europe.
    I mentioned a few weeks back about the westham way when I watched the 1964 FA cup and CWCup and there it was in front of me !!!!! The general breaking up an attack and launching a counter with pace and vision and complete understanding of everyone’s roll in the team,
    David Colman sums it up pretty well with the comment ( the west ham way ) !!!
    Says it all really,
    Mooro was generations in front of all others!!!!! The likes of you will never see again !!!!
    A one off !!!
    Credit to Bilic he has made me a very happy hammer,

  2. The WAY is a general term with the method of football the approach of the fans the whole concept of football and entertainment,
    You can not point at a game or move in any era and say the WAY,
    If people don’t understand that they will never understand us
    I have followed this club because very really have I left the ground or watched through the the media been proud to where our colours,
    Winning is great Premier survival is great winning a trophy is great,but not the end of the world
    Not being entertained,being embarrassed of my club that is not the WAY
    Harry you know that
