Harry Redknapp was an Arsenal fan

What did I think of West Ham v Arsenal on Sunday? Well, I was sure Arsenal would win, so I had a bet on them.

They took a half an hour to get into gear and after that they improved from dismal to mediocre. But at half-time I still believed they would win.

A weak shot  by substitute Adebayor was going wide but Foubert stuck out his leg and diverted it into his own net. And in the 90th minute, Bendtner’s wonderful long pass released Adebayor, who went round keeper Rob Green and made it 2-0.

New Spurs manager Harry Redknapp was an Arsenal fan as a boy in the Fifties.

He was taken by his dad and stood on the Clock End. He was among the 62,000 who saw Arsenal beaten 5-4 by Manchester United’s Busby Babes, just before the Munich plane crash of 1958. Harry has said that was the greatest game of football he has ever seen.

He was born in Poplar, east London, and in the Sixties played as a right winger for West Ham with Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Frank Lampard senior.

Spurs beat Bolton 2-0 yesterday but Bolton are going down. 

They are hopeless. Kevin Nolan and Gavin McCann can’t run. Man City will annihilate them on Sunday.

Fans were planning a big demo at the game. It was going to be ” Sack the board! Levy out!” That’s why Levy sacked Ramos, Comolli and Poyet at midnight on Saturday. He hired Harry after sounding him out through former Spurs director Paul Kemsley, a mate of Mike Ashley’s.

Harry previously went up to Newcastle, saw what a mess it was, and said, “Thanks, but no thanks.”
