Harry Redknapp proves with latest comments he hasn’t got a clue about Newcastle

6 years ago

Harry Redknapp has once again exhibited his ignorance at Newcastle United’s expense.

According to the out of work manager, ‘About time they (Newcastle United) started to bring in some British players…seems to be a French club almost…they seem to come from everywhere but here’.

Look around the Premier League Harry, them there damn foreigners are everywhere.

The problem for Newcastle is that most of our players haven’t been very good, not so much where they were born.

Arguably our three most committed players are a Serbian, a Spaniard and  a Dutchman (Mitrovic, Perez and Janmaat).

To sum up how it is about good players, rather than where they are from, at the Etihad Newcastle had three English players (Williamson, Lascelles and Elliot) in their 18 man squad and Manchester City had only two (Sterling and Hart).

I’ll have to ask Harry which part of Manchester that Sergio Aguero comes from…

At that Man City match there were only 3 French players in the matchday 18, the actual breakdown being:

5 Holland

3 England

3 France

1 Switzerland

1 Senegal

1 Argentina

1 DR Congo

1 Spain

1 Ivory Coast

1 Serbia

A quick check of the record books shows me that when Newcastle played Harry Redknapp’s Spurs on 29 December 2010, there were only two British players in the Tottenham starting 11 and nine bloody foreigners…I wonder who chose his players?

Harry Redknapp talking on BT Sport:

“I’ve worked with Steve McClaren, he is very, very good, enthusiastic and a good coach.

“It is massive (Tim Krul’s injury), massive.

“Whoever has brought the players in, that is what they need to look at, he hasn’t brought them players in.

“It is about time they started looking to bring in some British players as well, it is a club full of… it seems to be a French club almost.

They seem to come from everywhere but here.”
