Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
I see from ESPN that our EX-manager is now insisting that it was his Spurs contract that cost him the England job!! Apparently a £10 mill compensation clause had to be met by the FA.
Yes I truly thank him for the great football we played at times under HR but he just can't keep his mouth shut. I really am glad the man has gone, he's so up himself, It's never his fault, no matter what happens around him, he always blames somebody else's.
sorry but i am not glad he is gone....he dragged us up the table into the champions league.....personally i think he is more charismatic and soccer wise than AvB,.......blame egotistical levy .....who thinks that he is god.....and likes to assert his authority.....his tight fistedness has cost us some great players....

DerekW, everyone is entitled to their opinion but (ALbeit lasagne gate) Big MJ had done the same with a similar squad who were not at there peak, ie: Modric, and without VDV.
So IMHO all HR did was take us back to where we were before Juande Ramos.
Two seasons on the trot he cost the club money by not rotating the squad sufficiently and falling away regarding results after the January window. 12 points clear of the gooners and crumbling to end up behind them.
As I said he had us playing some great football at times but how could Levy keep a manager that was spouting about wanting the England job and refusing to sign a new contract when offered. (This was before his court case).
Once he was overlooked he took on a new rep, Rooney's one, and started trying to get what was offered before but with a bigger, longer contract.
I cannot see how he can be seen as charismatic, to me he's just a loudmouth man who's just so far up himself. He never admits he's the one at fault, it is the fans or the players or something else, but as I said, everyone has their own opinion and can obviously say what they feel.
yeah, Spurs had some decent seasons under Redknapp but I'm also glad he's gone. Now he's saying he would refuse the job of England manager if he were offered it. Has he been offered the job then or what? stop talking nonsense Harry.
