Fair 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
