Sorry Harry – no second Irons coming


Harry-Redknapp-005The sights and sounds of Harry Redknapp giving his views on the Sam Allardyce episode raised a smile.

On the one hand – according to Harry – Allardyce was never the right fit for West Ham United’s owners and fans but did a decent job in maintaining the mid-table status.

Talk about playing both ends against the middle and keeping everyone happy!

And given that all of this came AFTER Sam had left, it’s pretty easy to see what may have been going on. Perhaps, just perhaps, Harry wanted it known he was still out of work!

If that is the case we can make it crystal clear that he hasn’t a prayer having spoken to various individuals inside the club about his latest views on things West Ham.

The general view is that’H’ may well have been making some sort of pitch for the job notably in relation to his comment about “getting on well with David Sullivan.”

There really is no chance. He is not on the list although I suppose it’s possible a job closer to his Bournemouth home may become available were the Hammers to move on Eddie Howe!

    We could use his dog to do the accounts,we could use his son to watch our boys play and talk us through lucky goals,we could use his daughter in law to pick the half time food,
    But we could not let him near our club again,
    Nice try Harry but not quite good enough

      Great interview but I thought this site was now Phil Brown-Tongue free! He gets everywhere lol

    I was thinking.. what is the Genius doing now? Looks strange like nobody’s claimed him yet… maybe Sam is carefully considering the job offers… I suppose they are a lot and prestigious… lol

    • Quickdraw de Boer says:

      Apparently Zeus wants him to run the Mount Olympus team haha as I type Niall Quinn is saying he should go to Sunderland……lucky them lol

  • Quickdraw de Boer says:

    Thank god for that,the idea of H coming back was really taxing my brain. I don’t know who bunged his name in,it must’ve been a backhanded compliment by someone fiddling with various names. Under no account should he be considered.

    mixed views on H. complete wrong ‘un but one of the most entertaining west ham teams in recent memory bringing players like pdc and always willing to give youth a chance. Would i have him back-only if he was kept well away from transfers and even then probably not!
