So after four years with Tottenham Hotspur Harry Redknapp got the old tin tack. In my opinion he was very unlucky as he delivered two top 4 finishes in 3 season’s; certainly in the Premier League era Spurs have never known such levels of consistency.

Ultimately though it was the throwing away of 3rd spot and Chelsea winning the Champions League to deny Tottenham entry into it; which cost our ex-manager .
Could Harry however return to the Upton Park hot seat? If things didn’t work out with Sam could we go running back to Harry? Would it be the same as it was before? The lovely football in the traditional West Ham way, wayward maverick’s arriving on our door step? Promising cup runs that ultimately end in failure? No.
Too much has come and gone; Harry was never really accepted by Spurs fans largely due to his West Ham connections, well its vice-versa now. He simply wouldn’t be welcome back at the Boleyn as an opposing manager let alone in the home dug-out! Football fans tend to have long memories and since Harry went up the road (after swearing he’d never leave Pompey again.) I still and I’d wager a lot of other Hammers fans are bitter about some of his conduct towards us…for instance the way he ruthlessly and publically pursued Craig Bellamy whilst we were in the midst of a relegation battle in the 08/09 season left a rather bitter taste. It showed a lack of respect for a club where he’d spent a considerable chunk of his playing/managerial career and was a slap in the face to the same fans that used to see him as one our own.

I think the common consensus within the ranks of Irons fans is that when Sam leaves (which will hopefully be after 3-4 years after he’s re-established us as Premier League club) is that we’d like one of our old boys to come in and bring back the flair, style and swagger that was the hallmark of West Ham in the late 90’s/ early 2000’s; however we don’t want it to be a swan-song for old ‘arry…we want it to be his greatest ever signing Paolo Di Canio.
