It’s been an up and down career for H Redknapp Esq. Mostly down once he legs it, to be fair. The man truthfully has no equal in English football.
1983–1992 – Harry Redknapp manages Bournemouth
2002 – Bournemouth relegated
2008 – Bournemouth in administration , docked points and relegated
1994–2001 – Harry Redknapp manages West Ham United
2003 – West Ham relegated
2009 – West Ham relegated
2010 – West Ham saved from bankruptcy by £100m bailout by new owners
2002–2004 and 2005-2008 – Harry Redknapp manages Portsmouth
2009 – Portsmouth delay payment of players’ wages three times in four months
2010 – Portsmouth become first PL club to go into administration, making 85 people redundant; relegation follows
2011 – New owners take over and last 4 months before going into administration themselves
2012 – Portsmouth into administration for the second time
2004–2005 – Harry Redknapp manages Southampton
2005 – unusually, Southampton relegated BEFORE Redknapp walks out
2008 – Southampton players have to be sold to avoid administration
2009 – the old familiar tale: Southampton go into administration and are relegated (again).
2008–2012 – Harry Redknapp manages Tottenham Hotspur
2013 – ??? (fingers crossed)

If you haven’t already seen it check out ‘ SWISS RAMBLE’ and read his article ‘HARRY’S GAME’. It’s absolutely brilliant!
Bournemouth relegated 10 years after he left!!! I get the point but this is a bit daft…
I’m not saying he’s directly responsible for everything, just that at every club he’s managed he does not leave a legacy of success.
It’s still a stretch. As loathsome as some think he is, he’s not as horrible as he’s made out to be here. In any event, before he entered the business he was an Arsenal supporter. Leave the old man alone.
