Saints Pompey And Arsenal Fans Unite To Bushwack Harry Redknapp
Wednesday, 14th Nov 2018 15:04
They say there is only two things that unite Saints and Pompey fans and that is a love of Alan Ball and a hatred of Harry Redknapp and they are now being joined by Arsenal fans to ensure that "Arry" suffers in the jungle.
Given that he owns a property in Sandbanks one of the most expensive and exclusive area to live in the UK, not to mention a fortune amassed from over half a century in football it is somewhat surprising that at 71 Harry Redknapp should be so desperate to lay his hands on his reported fee of £500,000 for appearing on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, he surely cannot be short of the money.
The fact that he is willing to undergo possibly several weeks of discomfort in the jungle to get his grubby paws on what is surely a pittance to him, perhaps says a lot about his priorities in life and as a man.
Perhaps it is his dog that mistakenly entered him for the series whilst checking his online bank account, because Harry as always is totally unaware of the situation and what it entails.
Certainly there aren't many Saints fans who are fans of his after his pitiful attempts as manager at St Mary's that ended in relegation and Pompey fans are not far behind after he lied to them about never "going up the road" and although he won them the FA Cup they never had the same feeling for him again after the events of December 2004.
Arsenal fans aren't that keen either after his term at their big rivals Tottenham Hotspur and indeed most of the club's he has managed have seen him leave under a cloud.
Plenty of other club's fans are already willing to join in the fun and games and ensure that he is voted to do every "Bushtucker Trial"
Saints official twitter feed kicked off the fun when it said in reply to the i'm a celebrity official twitter feed.
"Careful that Harry doesn't leave you halfway through to join @bbcstrictly"
So Saints have led the way and Arsenal fans were quick to throw their weight behind a campaign to make sure that he has a torrid time in the Jungle, Pompey fans are a little split about Redknapp but there will be a sizeable enlistment from them and even Arry's beloved Ammers are sure to get in on the act, he is still seen as the man who stabbed Billy Bonds in the back to get the job and his final years at Upton Park were fraught.
Queens Park Rangers were relegated at the end of his first season there and although he got them back up, he soon was making the excuses as they were relegated for the 2nd time in 3 seasons and left in the February with them second to last in the Premier League.
So it will be an interesting few weeks for Arry in the Jungle, although for one due to the heat he will literally be down to the bare bones ! Triffic

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
