‘Arry claims Arsene Wenger got his sloppy seconds

Spurs boss suffers wheel/deal fail…


Harry Redknapp, never one to miss an opportunity to mine some glory out of the most desperate of situations, has brushed off Spurs’ 3-0 humping at the Emirates on Saturday by revealing he knew about one of Arsenal’s best performers this season, Thomas Vermaelen, before Arsene Wenger did:

“I was recommended him as a left-back but we were strong in that position. People who recommended him didn’t speak of him as a central defender.”

‘Arry can’t have done too much research – Vermaelen filled in at centre-back for Ajax for over a third of last season, winning eight of the 12 games he played in the role. If the Spurs boss wants to get a more well-rounded view of Europe’s finest footballers, perhaps he should actually start playing Football Manager, rather than just pocketing the coin from shamelessly hawking it.

    Yeah, we traded him Kanu, Lauren, Campbell, Diarra, and Bentley for Vermaelen.

    I think Arsenal made out in that deal.

    Don’t make me laugh Holland has more DRUGS .Than our league and thats saying somthing he has gone to the right club look what .DR. W enger did for Abue boo boy got booed and he came back now he looks like Henry .Dr Wenger learned how to clone is players by studying doctor Mengal the Fures doctor. This is why he gets young boys from abroad and makes them into good players. He then plays them in the league cup till they get walloped then they are sold or left to rot till the next batch. He then gets rave reviews then wins newt this is because they get injured through running to much with the passing running and passing running and defending defending till they exhaustion sets in and failure follows that’s the Wenger way.

    I doubt there was a drink in the deal for “Arry so it never happened. Why else would you buy David Nugent and never play him?

    Arsene gets his sloppy seconds? this coming from a man whom of which has Bassong (someone who stated his desire of playing for Arsenal), Wilson Palacios and David Bentley….

    leave it out ‘Arry, your digging a bigger hole each day. Accept your loss and move on mate
