Loic Remy
Yahoo News - about 1 month
Loic Remy joined Liverpool on tour in USA and had been with Brendan Rodgers' side for around a week expecting to complete an £8.5m move from QPR to the Reds.  To the surprise of QPR boss Redknapp and Remy the deal fell through with Liverpool pulling out claiming he failed a medical due to a heart problem.  Harry Redknapp was disgruntled by the failed medical as he claimed "he had a stringent one here, one at Marseille and at Newcastle and with France before the World Cup. You couldn't meet a fitter lad."

Roy Hodgson
Yahoo News - 3 months
Another blunder from the FA, with Hodgson getting the nod over the much fancied Harry Redknapp for the job, following Fabio Capello's resignation ahead of the 2012 European Championships in Poland and Ukraine. The well travelled Hodgson, who had previously managed giant footballing nations such as Finland and the UAE, led England through Group D of the Euros, but found himself on a plane home shortly thereafter, following a penalty shootout defeat to Italy. With a full qualification campaign ahead of him, Hodgson easily took the Three Lions to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup, but defeats to Italy and Uruguay sent his side home after just two games. Incredibly, the FA stuck with the former Fulham, Liverpool and West Brom boss for one more campaign, in France for Euro 2016 - England arguably had one of the most exciting sides in years, but yet, the outcome?  An embarrassing defeat to minnows Iceland in the last 16.

Pompey take unusual route for new boss Cook
Hayling Islander - almost 2 years
PAUL COOK is only the second person in more than 15 years to quit as a manager elsewhere to take over as Pompey boss. The other one? Harry Redknapp. The Blues are closing in on announcing the 48-year-old as their replacement for Andy Awford with the buy-out clause in his Chesterfield contract met. Recruiting a manager from another club has been a rare approach from the Blues in recent times, instead focusing on those already at the club or out of work. Tony Pulis was tempted from Bristol City in January 2000 when Milan Mandaric was at the helm as owner, albeit lasting nine months. But since that appointment, only Redknapp has walked out on a club to make the move to Pompey – when he left Southampton in December 2005. In doing so, he kept the club in the Premier League via the Great Escape and won the FA Cup in 2008. Now Cook will follow suit, persuaded to leave League One to take over the Fratton Park reins as he strives to resurrect a club which has just recorded its lowest pos ...

Soccer-Quick return would be hard if QPR relegated, says Ramsey
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Queen's Park Rangers will struggle to make an immediate return to the Premier League if, as seems almost certain, they succumb to relegation, interim manager Chris Ramsey said on Friday. The London club managed it last time they dropped out of the Premier League in 2013, gaining promotion via the Championship playoffs -- but Ramsey believes a long rebuilding job will be needed if they fail to stay up. "I think it will be difficult to come back (straight away)because we have obstacles that weren't there before," Ramsey, who replaced Harry Redknapp in February, told reporters. Having said that, everyone wants to bounce straight back." With three matches left, starting with this weekend's game at Manchester City, QPR are seven points behind 17th-placed Hull City and even a maximum nine points would be unlikely to save them from the drop.

Awford: Macca, Pompey fans and the highs and lows
Hayling Islander - almost 2 years
Andy Awford has given his take on some of the issues he faced during his spell as Pompey boss. AWFORD ON...FAN POWER Throughout my time, the support I received from 99.9-per-cent of the supporters was phenomenal. I thank them for that and I get emotional when I think about it. Those great moments will live with me forever. Going in last season with seven games to go to keep the club up, it was all or nothing. Psychologically, I changed a few things and showed a few how important it was to play for this club and how vital the supporters are to us. We rallied the supporters and they rallied us as well. AWFORD ON...TOUGH DEPARTURES The whole episode with Macca (Alan McLoughlin) could have been handled better by everybody – me, the club and the media. Everybody could have come out of it a lot better and most importantly, Macca. It was a horrible time. He rang me when I left, which was good of him. We have been friends for a long time. I haven’t seen him since but I’m sure we’l ...

Soccer-Sleepy Bournemouth's top-flight dream close to reality
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
By Mike Collett LONDON, April 22 (Reuters) - There is an old joke in Bournemouth that when the local council offered free bus passes to residents under 21 only seven people applied -- everyone else who lives in the English south-coast resort is too old. For much of their 116-year existence, Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic, still their official title under the trading name AFC Bournemouth, have reflected the perception of the town as a nice place for a quiet retirement or a weekend beside the sea. Then in January 1984 their young manager Harry Redknapp guided Bournmeouth to a 2-0 win over the holders Manchester United, still their most famous victory. FIRST TIME Under another young manager, Eddie Howe, a former player, in his second spell in charge at Dean Court, the Cherries are pushing for promotion to the top flight for the first time.

QPR boss Ramsey believes in survival despite form
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Queens Park Rangers may have lost their last four games and be four points adrift of safety in the Premier League but their manager Chris Ramsey is convinced they will retain their place in the elite league. Ramsey, given the job until the end of the season when he replaced Harry Redknapp in early February, hopes the process of saving their place in the Premier League will begin on Sunday at home to an Everton side who come into the game on the back of a 5-2 defeat to Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League, a result which saw them go out 6-4 on aggregate. QPR, though, have not won since beating fellow strugglers Sunderland 2-0 on February 10 and have the worst defence in the league having conceded 52 goals. QPR's home form has been considerably better than their away trips -- they have taken just three of their 22 points on their travels -- so for Ramnsey their four remaining games at Loftus Road could be pivotal.

The Cross Word: Tales from a kitman as Big Kev joins 92 club
Hayling Islander - almost 2 years
Pompey kitman Kev McCormack has clocked up all of the 92 clubs working alongside Blues stalwart Barry Harris. Last week, we asked Harris his memories of his time in the role. Now it’s Big Kev’s turn in the spotlight. How did the job come about, Kev? Alan Ball was my first manager. He gave me the job. I knew Kit Symons from Wales and when I was boxing for Wales. I was in the Royal Marines at the time and (physio) Neil Sillett wanted me to do extra work with injured players. I did that for a year. Then they asked me to look after the players’ bar with my background. Then Gordon Neave was retiring and I was getting medically discharged from my position. So Bally asked me to come in as a kitman. I asked him what did that entail? He said not to worry and just come in! I walked in and asked Gordon if he was going to show me about. He gave me the keys and said: ‘All the best son!’. He told me three things. He said I’d swear a lot more, I’d be the angriest man in the world and I’d be ...

Ramsey took over the struggling Premier League team on a caretaker basis following Harry Redknapp's resignation last week and led them to their first away points of the campaign with a 2-0 win at Sunderland on Tuesday. QPR chairman Tony Fernandes had said earlier this week that he was close to securing his "dream manager", with former Swansea boss Michael Laudrup installed as the bookmakers' favourite for the job. "In the wake of Harry Redknapp's resignation, it was my desire to identify the right individual for the job and at this time, we believe Chris is the ideal candidate," Fernandes told QPR's website.

Harry Redknapp says injury not transfers led to QPR exit
Yahoo News - about 2 years
Harry Redknapp resigned as manager of Premier League strugglers Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday, saying impending knee surgery, not a row over transfer policy, prompted his departure from Loftus Road. Redknapp's announcement came just a day after QPR chairman Tony Fernandes tweeted there would be "no more cheque book" at the relegation-threatened west London club as the January transfer window closed Monday. Veteran English manager, Redknapp, 67, had repeatedly said he had the full support of Malaysian businessman Fernandes, the founder of the AirAsia budget airline, amid reports his position was in jeopardy with QPR currently second-bottom in the table. Head of football operations Les Ferdinand, the former QPR striker, has taken temporary charge ahead of this Saturday's league match at home to Southampton as Fernandes seeks a permanent replacement for Redknapp.

Spurs ended the 2010–11 Premier League in fifth position with 62 points. Although not enough to secure a second year of Champions League football, this finish instead meant that Redknapp's Spurs qualified for the Europa League.
  • THIRTIES
  • 2009
    In 2009–10, his first full campaign with the club, Redknapp guided Spurs to their most successful Premier League season to date.
    More Details Hide Details Beginning with four consecutive wins, Spurs went on to finish in fourth place with 70 points, thus gaining the chance to qualify for the Champions League by means of a play-off. As a result of his efforts he won the Premier League Manager of the Year award, only the second manager to do so in a season when his side did not win the title.
    Redknapp made significant alterations to the squad in the summer of 2009.
    More Details Hide Details Striker Darren Bent was sold to Sunderland for an initial fee of £10 million, while midfielder Didier Zokora departed for Sevilla for £7.75 million. In came England striker Peter Crouch and Croatia midfielder Niko Kranjčar from Portsmouth for £9 million and £2 million respectively along with defender Sébastien Bassong from Newcastle United for £8 million.
    In the second half of the season, Spurs gradually moved up the league table after a significant improvement in form. In March 2009, Redknapp led Spurs to the League Cup final, which they lost on penalties to Manchester United.
    More Details Hide Details Spurs eventually finished in eighth position with 51 points, narrowly missing out on a Europa League place.

Long-serving Chelsea keeper Carlo Cudicini also joined on a free transfer, former Spurs player Pascal Chimbonda returned to White Hart Lane from Sunderland for a fee in the region of £3 million and Robbie Keane, who like Chimbonda and Defoe had only left Spurs within the last year, re-joined after an unsuccessful spell at Liverpool for an initial fee of £12 million.
    At the conclusion of the 2009–10 season he guided Tottenham into the UEFA Champions League for the very first time.
    More Details Hide Details Redknapp oversaw Tottenham's progress to the last 16 after defeating Werder Bremen at home. They topped their group ahead of holders Inter Milan, before defeating A.C. Milan over two legs to reach the quarter-finals. His son, Jamie Redknapp, played under him at Bournemouth and Southampton. He is also uncle to Frank Lampard, who played under him at West Ham United. Redknapp was born in Poplar, London, the only child of Henry Joseph William Redknapp (1922–1996) and Violet May Brown (1924–2001). At the age of 11, while playing for East London Schools football he was spotted by Dickie Walker, a Tottenham Hotspur scout. From there Harry grew up in the Tottenham youth ranks playing at Cheshunt, meeting the likes of Bill Nicholson, Dave Mackay and Danny Blanchflower. At the age of 15 Redknapp moved to West Ham and played alongside Bobby Moore. In a 2008 interview he stated as part of a tribute to Tom Finney: "I was a big Arsenal fan as a kid and I remember seeing him play against Tommy Docherty one night".
  • 2008
    The High Court ruled in May 2008 that the raid by City of London Police officers, on Redknapp's home in Poole, was illegal and quashed the search warrants, calling their actions "wholly unacceptable" and ordering them to pay damages to Redknapp as well as part of his legal costs.
    More Details Hide Details Following further investigation by HM Revenue & Customs as part of the corruption enquiry, in January 2010, Redknapp was charged with two counts of cheating the public revenue, along with Milan Mandarić. The charge related to a £189,000 payment from Mandarić to Redknapp via a bank account in Monaco. The trial began at Southwark Crown Court on 23 January 2012. He was found not guilty on both counts on 8 February. Redknapp's acquittal came just hours before the resignation of England coach Fabio Capello. Two days later, he refused to rule himself out of the running for the job, but said that it would be very difficult to combine the role with his current position as Tottenham manager. A few weeks later the FA appointed Roy Hodgson as manager.
    In October 2008, following the sacking of Juande Ramos by Tottenham Hotspur, the club announced that Redknapp had agreed to take over as the new manager at Spurs.
    More Details Hide Details Tottenham paid £5 million in compensation to Portsmouth for letting Redknapp go. Spurs had secured only two points from the first eight games of the season prior to Redknapp's arrival and lay bottom of the league, but in his first two weeks in charge he took the club out of the relegation zone, winning ten out of the twelve points available with wins against Bolton Wanderers, Liverpool and Manchester City and a remarkable 4–4 draw against North London rivals Arsenal.
    As this event took place two days after his departure for Tottenham, he received a mixed reception from the Portsmouth fans, despite having led the club to a long-awaited trophy in the 2008 FA Cup.

    Redknapp returned to Portsmouth to receive the Freedom of the City in a ceremony on 28 October 2008.

    On 8 March 2008, he led Portsmouth to an FA Cup quarter final victory over Manchester United, completing a hat-trick of FA Cup wins over Manchester United, and followed this with a semi-final victory over West Bromwich Albion at Wembley Stadium on 5 April.

    In January 2008 it emerged through the media that Redknapp was offered the vacant manager's job at Newcastle United following the sacking of Sam Allardyce.
    More Details Hide Details Redknapp had apparently declined the job, stating "I have a job to do to take this club forward and to walk away would not have been the right thing to do." It was later stated by Newcastle chairman Christopher Mort that Redknapp "was interviewed for the job but he was only one of a number of people we were speaking to at that time", and at the time of Redknapp's interview the club had already been in secret talks with the eventual appointee, Kevin Keegan, for a week.

  • 2005
    Redknapp returned to Portsmouth on 7 December 2005 with the club threatened by relegation to the Championship, although not in the relegation zone.
    More Details Hide Details At first it looked like Redknapp would be heading for a second successive relegation, but a fine run of form at the end of the season, aided by the takeover of Portsmouth by Alexandre Gaydamak (which provided Redknapp with more money), ensured Portsmouth's survival. In the following season, Redknapp led Portsmouth to a ninth-placed finish which was the club's highest league finish since the 1950s.
    After being repeatedly linked with a return to Portsmouth after they sacked Alain Perrin, Redknapp resigned as Southampton's manager in early December 2005.
    More Details Hide Details Lowe quoted Redknapp as referring to Portsmouth as his "spiritual home".
    Redknapp remained in charge for the 2005–06 Championship season but was unable to establish consistency needed to make Southampton promotion contenders.
    More Details Hide Details Redknapp was also unhappy with chairman Rupert Lowe's appointment of Sir Clive Woodward to the club's coaching staff.
  • 2004
    Redknapp and his wife are the fundraising presidents for the Southampton-based charity Leukaemia Busters, a role that they took over in 2004 previously held by former cricketer David Gower and his wife, Thorunn.
    More Details Hide Details Redknapp and his wife also own a property development company, Pierfront Developments. In August 2011, it was announced that a housing development their company is building in Southsea, Hampshire, will go ahead without affordable housing. The £600,000 they offered to the council to build affordable homes elsewhere, was accepted by the council. Opponents of the scheme estimated that this will only be enough to build eight homes, instead of the 28 that council policy says they should be building in this development. In January 2011, he was mugged while attending a football game in Madrid. On 2 November 2011, he had an operation to unblock coronary arteries. Redknapp wrote for the online gambling company, Betfair, as its ‘Euro 2012 columnist’. Redknapp published his autobiography, Always Managing, in October 2013. The book is ghostwritten by journalist Martin Samuel.
    Redknapp had another disagreement with Mandaric over the appointment of Velimir Zajec as Director of Football and resigned as Portsmouth's manager in November 2004.
    More Details Hide Details A few weeks after his departure at Portsmouth, Redknapp became manager of Southampton, a move which infuriated Portsmouth's supporters as the two clubs are fierce local rivals. Some fans even bore T-shirts which referred to Redknapp as "Scummer" and "Judas" and called for him to "Rot in Hell". Redknapp was tasked with keeping Southampton in the Premier League – a similar task to the one Redknapp was facing with Portsmouth, and a familiar one at the club over the previous 15 years, which he would have faced had he accepted the offer to take over a decade earlier – but ultimately was unable to achieve this, ending Southampton's 27-year spell in the top flight.

    More Details Hide Details Ironically, it was reported in the national media that had Redknapp taken over, Bassett would have been on his coaching staff at the East Midlands club.
    Redknapp left West Ham on 9 May 2001, one game before the end of the 2000–01 season.

  • 1994
    For the next season he was appointed assistant manager to Billy Bonds at West Ham United, another of his former clubs. However, in August 1994, the board decided to turn control of the team over to Redknapp and move Bonds into an administrative role.
    More Details Hide Details In the end, Bonds resigned completely from the club, leaving Redknapp in sole charge. Just months before being promoted to the manager's seat at Upton Park, he was linked with the managerial vacancy at Southampton after the departure of previous manager Ian Branfoot, but the job went to Alan Ball instead. Redknapp helped to establish the club in the Premier League and introduced a number of young players from the club's academy, including Michael Carrick, Joe Cole, Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard. The signings of Stuart Pearce, Paolo Di Canio and Trevor Sinclair helped them re-establish their careers having been signed by Redknapp. He also made mistakes in the transfer market particularly with overseas players, the signings of Marco Boogers, Florin Raducioiu and Paulo Futre proving to be notable failures. Nevertheless, West Ham finished eighth in 1998, and took fifth in 1999, which saw them qualify for the Intertoto Cup, in what was their second-best ever season in the top division. In the 1999–2000 season West Ham won the Intertoto Cup and qualified for the UEFA Cup but failed to match their performances in the league, which could be put down to the extra games played.

    Though he made a full recovery (apart from losing his sense of smell and gaining a facial tic), he eventually quit Bournemouth at the end of the 1991–92 season.

    Redknapp and his wife Sandra have two sons Jamie, a football pundit, and Mark, a model. Jamie made his professional debut under his father at AFC Bournemouth in 1990 before moving on to Liverpool and later Tottenham Hotspur and finally Southampton before retiring in 2005.
    More Details Hide Details Harry's grandson via his son Mark, also called Harry Redknapp signed for Bournemouth during May 2014 His nephew is former England midfielder Frank Lampard, Jr. whose parents are Sandra's late twin sister, Patricia, and Harry's former teammate and managerial assistant Frank Lampard, Sr.
    In June 1990, while in Italy to watch the World Cup, Redknapp was involved in a road accident along with Michael Sinclair, the chairman of York City, Fred Whitehouse, the chairman of Aston Villa and Bournemouth's managing director Brian Tiler, who died along with four other people.
    More Details Hide Details Travelling through Latina, south of Rome, their minibus was in collision with a car containing several Italian soldiers. Their vehicle was flipped onto its roof and skidded fifty yards along the road. Redknapp was doused in petrol and pulled clear of the accident by Sinclair.
