Redknapp raises Hammers defence

Harry Redknapp Love him or hate him, Harry Redknapp won’t hear anyone talk the Irons down.

Ok, everybody knows the hstory but as is usually the case, the knockers tend to overlook the achievements.

And whatever else may be said it also needs to be remembered that he achieved the club’s highest ever Premier League finish of fifth.

And he has been quick to come out and make his own position clear after the poor performances on the pitch and dramas off it.

He admits: “I know Slaven so well… I brought him to the club and it hurts to see him struggling like this.”

And he revealed that despite all the jibes that are being directed at the club and its fans we still support a fabulous football club.

He told talkSPORT “It’s a fantastic football club. And when people say to me ‘Oh West Ham’s not a big club’… course it’s a big club, you don’t have three players play in the World Cup final if it’s not a big club.

“They’ve had great teams, great players over the years and it’s a special place and always will be.”

  1. Sounds like an ex player/manager looking for free corporate hospitality at the LS.

  2. So if someone doesnt say wjat you want to see then they are after something eh.
    Would it have met with your approval if he had called the LS & sh1thole & Brady a ****:)

  3. sounds like he is after some thing to me would it go passed them if they hire him to replace Slav it wont be the first person he **** on to get a job

  4. You lads are too cynical lol 🙂

  5. If the worst did happen and Slav didn’t make it, we could do a lot worse than Redknapp. Pullis and Moyes might be looking for a job soon just as an example. He is a mercenary and sold some of his mates down the river but he is a good manager and did well with us most seasons. Fingers crossed we don’t end up in that position COYI !!!

  6. Yeah Arry has always been a prety good manager.Maybe once some of our fans have ousted the board & Brady & brought in some faceless chinese consortium they can gather some pace on the manager situation.I can just see some of them if we ended up with a foreign consortium buying us.Then they will be accusing Sullivan & Gold of betraying our british roots hehe
    And of course some foreign buyers would never see us as a cash cow to milk & rebrand would they..no of course not!

    • True, look at Vincent Tan at Cardiff, the family at Hull City to name a couple, when you think back to the Cearn’s, Terence Brown, The Icelandics it really does make you wonder how long some of these peoples memories are of when we were selling all our best players while people on the board were getting richer and we were genuinely being screwed out of success.

      • You are both right.I can recollect Tony Fernandes being a front runner to buy the club.If you see what he has done at QPR it makes you wonder where we would be now.
        It seems to me a fair few fans have selective memory lapses.
        But if you keep your opinion to yourself in the main or only mention the problems occasionally instead of being a daily motor mouth it makes you a sycophant.We must remember to call Brady scum & a whore all the time & then we are real fans.
        I swear some fans are starting to lose the plot…

        • lol Alfie, luckilly most on this site are grown up and have a balanced view, yeah Fernandes would have been the Icelandics mark II, he has ruined QPR by thinking like the Icelandics and throwing huge money at players that weren’t nearly good enough to deserve it.

        • Please dont complain about the moaners moaning,some of them dont like it.Especially the ones who live abroad & these issues effect not one jot
          But eh if it gives them a reason to keep their traps open i guess they dont need an excuse..

  7. I have drawn the conclusion that though we all know there are many issues to sort out some supporters just have too much time on their hands when they can go trawling round Irons sites all day grabbing some juicy gossip to feed their needs for drama…
