    Dirty Harry & Corrupt FA

    I wonder if your board is going to do­ the right thing and sack Redknapp, or are they going to­ condone him? Will the FA ban him by taking a leaf out of the honest, upstanding Lega Calcio's book who docked points and even demoted teams guilty of corruption in the Serie A? The corrupt individuals in Serie A were all tried and locked up. I fear that the FA will just turn a blind eye like the corrupt, incompetents that they are. Either way, a sad day­ for football!

    Redknapp 'received offshore bungs'. Full article below:

    Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp went on trial on Monday accused of receiving offshore bungs from his former employer.

    The 64-year-old - tipped as a future England boss - dodged taxes on "substantial payments" while he was in charge at Portsmouth, a jury heard.

    Appearing in the dock, Redknapp stood accused of receiving two untaxed payments of more than £189,000 from former chairman Milan Mandaric, his co-accused.

    John Black QC opened the Crown's case at Southwark Crown Court by telling jurors "both parties must have known" they were avoiding taxes.

    "These payments were a bung or offshore bonus that the parties had absolutely no intention of paying taxes for,'' he said.

    • Lets see what the outcome of the trial is first. He hasn't been found guilty of anything yet. If he does get found guilty, i'd imagind he will probably serve a jail sentence

      • Robert, not taking anything away from what you said about coppers knowing anything about this sort of thing, but a twaek for your comment is that it depends on whether inland revenue decide to do him for Fraud and non payment or just non payment, If they go down the Fraud road then it will certainly be police taking him into a station, charging and bailing him, so the fraud squad do know something about this.
        Strangely enough the full power of the law rarely gets utilised, so It will be interesting to see what route it takes

    • this is typical vito - spam every board and not pass any comment

      here he is condemning someone yet to be found guilty

      • Vito,

        A.C.Milan are owned by Silvio Berlusconi.

        Do I need to say any more than that? oh alright then!

        Are really in a position to sling mud at any other club, organisation or person?

        At least here there is a better chance of Harry receiving a fair trial -

        'I fear that the FA will just turn a blind eye like the corrupt, incompetents that they are. Either way, a sad day­ for football! '

        That comment coming from a fan of an Italian club is laughable

        -Oh the hypocrisy.
