“Henry James Redknapp, you have pleaded guilty to the charges brought by this court, and it is now my duty to pass sentence. You are an habitual criminal, who accepts arrest as an occupational hazard, and presumably accepts punishment in the same casual manner. We therefore feel constrained to commit you to the maximum term allowed for these offences — you will sign an extension at Tottenham for five years. may the Lord have mercy on your soul.”
All joking aside, fair play to the twitchy one. His coaching and management career is astounding in its consistency.
1976-79 Seattle Sounders – The team folded after the 1983 NASL outdoor season
1980 Oxford City – The club reached its lowest point in 1988 when they were evicted from their White House Ground. Forced to resign from the Isthmian League, the club did not return to senior football until 1990.
1983-1992 Bournemouth – Relegated to Division Three in 1990, the club have been on the brink of bankruptcy several times since.
1994 – 2001 West Ham Olympic – Relegated in 2002, and many other years, the Hammers were passed around from owner to owner once Harry had done his bit. They can look forward to better things now they have been snapped up for peanuts by the former owners of Birmingham City, that major powerhouse in English football.
2002 – 2004 Portsmouth – see 2005 – 2008
2004 – 2005 Southampton – Southampton were founding members of the Premiership in 1992–93, having played in the top flight of English football since 1978. The Saints were relegated that season and subsequently went into administration. That pales into insignificance when compared to neighbours…
2005-2008 Portsmouth – At the time of writing they have a week to avoid a winding-up order. Need I say more?
2008-? Tottenham Hotspur – Sweet mother of God, are we looking forward to seeing what happens to this shower of shit when they finally wise up!
