What a bumbling mess! The Daily Mail reports that the honpurable police force, so convinced of ‘Arry’s guilt and the severity of the charges, took away the Portsmouth manager’s belt in case he tried to hang himself. We know this is probably ‘procedure’ , but honestly – it doesn’t exactly make the arrest of Harry look any better than the bungliung mess it already appears to be.
A dawn raid on the Redknapp household last week (with the accompanyment of some gutterpresss shutterbugs) smacked of sensationalism, and this latest tidbit of news only makes it look like the fuzz were trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.
And it looks like ‘Appy ‘Arry isn’t happy at all about all this, i n fact he seems blahhhdry pissed off. Redknapp said:
“This has hurt me, big time, my life has been turned upside down. If I’d done something wrong, you could kick me out of football, hang me as a disgrace. I’d have ruined not just my life, but the lives of my family. Why would I do that? There isn’t enough money in the world to make me do that.”
So this whole arrest malarkey appears to be a lose-lose situation – the police now look like rabid headless chickens, raiding Redknapp’s home, impounding his wife’s PC – which she had apparently only learned to turn on the week before – taking away ‘Arry’s belt for fear of suicide and even accompanying him to the toilet…Well at least he has friends, apparently Mourinho, Rio Ferdinand, and Yakubu sent texts of support…But as for the England job, that seems to be up in smoke for Mr Redknapp right now!
