Redknapp Misses Out On Major Transfer Targets

Posted by

Former West Ham and current Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has always been good for two things: having a super floppy face, and hilarious sound bytes.

“We have got ourselves into that position where we are in with a shout of making Europe, but we would have all been delighted to be where we are now at the start of the year,” he told The News.

“All the big targets I went for in the summer I couldn’t get. I went for Stilian Petrov, Ryan Nelsen, Gareth Barry and Nicolas Anelka.

“We went for them all at one time, but we couldn’t get them. We didn’t get any of the players we really chased.

“I ended up getting Kanu four days before the season started. He was training over the park or something until we signed him.

That last bit is excellent! Even more excellent is video of Harry bollocking one of his players after being hit in the head with a ball during an interview:
