After winning the FA Cup, Harry Redknapp left Portsmouth in the middle of the season. They promoted Tony Adams as the gaffer, but he didn’t have much of a chance after selling key players. Adams was soon sacked, and Paul Hart barely kept them in the Premier League.

This year, it doesn’t seem like they have much of a chance. Relegation seems likely, and Harry Redknapp has proceeded to buy back every player that he acquired for Portsmouth. I suppose that’s natural, but he’s singlehandedly helping to relegate Portsmouth. A nice reward considering that he abandoned them just a few years ago, before coming back on a white horse as the savior.

Last year, we started the season against West Brom. We won 1-0 with a debut goal from Samir Nasri (get well soon!). The following game we lost 1-0 to Fulham courtesy of a solo goal from a set piece by Hangeland.

In other words, this should be the main motivational tool that our players need to use in order to pump them up. I don’t think they need to resort to tactics like this though, since they seem both more mature and motivated enough.

But then again, Portsmouth are no Fulham.

Just like Harry Redknapp is no Arsene Wenger.

Harry Redknapp was born a Gooner and turned into a scum. Arsene Wenger was born a Frenchman and became an Arsenal legend.
