Agent Redknapp Takes Over From Ramos & Commolli

Arsenal's Harry Redknapp has taken over the responsibilities that Agents Ramos and Commolli have performed so well over the last 12 months.

Arsenal employees Juande 'Gooner' Ramos and Damien 'Red & White' Commolli have performed their duties admirably over the last year, and had they not pushed the envelope a little too far by not allowing Spurs to win for the last 6 months then they might have been able to fulfill their mission of putting Spurs in their rightful place.

However, despite this minor set back, Arsenal have unleashed their secret weapon. Harry 'The Cannon' Redknapp.

Whilst the Tottenham fans bask in the glory of beating Bolton (surely it's time for another dvd?) their excitment has hidden one thing from them. Harry is a Gooner.

Speaking earlier in the year on the subject of Tom Finney Redknapp said, "What a player he was, I was a big Arsenal fan as a kid and I remember seeing him play against Tommy Docherty one night. He ate the Doc alive but the Doc still loved him. Reckoned he was the best player that had ever been and he wouldn`t be far wrong."

So there you have it.

All that remains is to wish Agent Redknapp all the best in his current mission, and hope he makes a speedy return to Portsmouth at the start of next season.

Hail the Cannon! I've also dug up an old article I read before, in which 'Arry recalled how he was brought to Highbury by his dad to watch us face the Busby Babes in 1958, which sadly turned out to be their last domestic game. 'Arry clearly said he's a Gooner so I'm sure Agent Redknapp will continue the Mission Possibly Too Easy: http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2006/nov/04/sport.comment1

its so sad that you have gone to the trouble to write that!

Haha surely Paul this is a response to Griddo's pathetic posts in the forum. Great stuff
gunnerkid107
It was no trouble Paxton, no trouble at all :)
Rocky7
"Sad"? Is there anything sadder than having to scroll all the way down to see a team on the league table?
GoonerLou
juande 'gooner' ramos 5 scum 1 TRAITOR?????
dspurs64
If Comolli and Ramos were in cahoot's with the Arse and if Harry's one of us too, then surely David Bently is the best secret agent s we've ever deployed?

Harry Redknapp has gone there purely to keep spurs up - he will leave at the end of the season and retire. - spuds have splashed the cash to get him there because he will keep them up - and with ramos they would have gone down - thats worth 30-40m
D4NNYT
dspurs - That was just a cunning ploy to get you spuddies spouting off about how you will finish above us again, only to mess you up again. Worked a treat if you ask me.
Rocky7
Chance would be a fine thing eh! Don't think I want Redknapp back though - one time being a Judas is enough for me thanks!!
PFCGino
I don't blame you Gino. I really like(d) Harry, but he's screw Pompey over again. I have a soft spot for Pompey too.
Rocky7
Strange how no Spurs fans are complaining about Harry's public courting of Defoe. Perhaps Daniel Levy, with his inate sense of morals, will report him to the Premier League? Anyway, Agent Juande, shame you have been rumbled, abort mission, comrade Commoli is down, repeat, abort mission.

Rocky7 - You nearly got them biting, but as with most fishing trips I go on, i only ever catch the small inoffensive ones that deserve to be thrown back! I think we may see Comolli back at Arsenal in some capacity, hopefully as a scout as he did a good job for us, saying that, he did a good job for us at Spu*s aswell LOL Harry will not take spu*s anywhere near their utopia/promised land of CL football, he ha sbeen brought in to stave off relegation and that is it, pure and simple. I'm lucky enough to have 3 tickets and sitting with the red action lads tomorrow night when I'm sure the players will remember that painful night at 3 point lane last season and dish out a tonking of a similar scoreline and hopefully we can go another 7-8 years + handing them their arses twice a season!

LD - You don't half know how to wind the spuddies up mate! LOL It's like a favourite past time or something!!

From F365 today Friends In Low Places One of the reasons why Harry Redknapp is given such an easy ride by the press is that he has so many friends in the Fourth Estate. Always good for a quote, there's a scrub-my-back-and-I'll-scrub-yours to the way the press treat Redknapp. Which may explain the lack of censure over his latest act of mid-season disloyalty and even less accompanying the reports that he is preparing to destabilise Pompey further by returning to sign their best players. It helps too that he has friends and family in such prominent positions. For instance, although it was during a ten-minute conversation with John Motson on BBC Radio Five Live that Redknapp confirmed he would be interested in re-signing Jermain Defoe, there never any question of questioning Redknapp about the dubious ethics of such a pursuit. Instead, the interview began with the immortal words "Well done mate, what a great victory!" and ended up with the salient matter of "Will you still have time to walk the dogs at Sandbanks?" In fairness to the BBC, they had no hestitation in inviting Tim Sherwood, despite the former Spurs midfielder now being in the paid employment of rivals Setanta, to talk up his dilemma over whether to join Tottenham as if it was a life-or-death matter. "I have to make my mind up whether or not it is the right time to get back into football," he agonised in a manner more becoming of a miner with arthritis deciding on whether to risk a return to the pits. "He's got a fantastic knowledge of the game," purred Redknapp in what suddenly amounted to a bizarre public wooing/job interview funded by licence-fee payers. "He tells it like it is." Back to 'Tim' (because we're all on first-name terms now Harry's back) for an insight into this fantastic knowledge and his capacity for telling it like it is: "Not many teams survive with two points after eight games...but there are no easy games in the Premiership." No wonder he is in such high demand. Sadly for some, one man not heading to White Hart Lane is Harry's son, Jamie. But that's not because he's not wanted. To quote Redknapp senior: "Sky Sports pay him too much. I don't think we can afford him." But where was Redknapp on Sunday afternoon? Not in the studio, covering any of the game's matches including the one billed by his employers as the biggest of the season to date. No, he was at White Hart Lane cheering on his dad's new team. "I was here just as a fan," he told SSN afterwards. Although it's not every fan, or pundit, who is then invited into the dressing room afterwards. Some pundit he'll be the next time his generous employers ask him to cover a Tottenham match (which may, of course, be as soon as tomorrow). If you want a quick, sneak preview of how it might go, here's the opening intro to one high-profile piece on Redknapp's latest u-turn in today's edition of The Daily Mail, the country's best-selling newspaper: 'Harry Redknapp has showed dare and nerve in taking the Tottenham job. He was very happy at Portsmouth, working with good people, living close to the training ground and, let's get it right, doing an outstanding job.' And the author of that piece? Jamie Redknapp, of course. All bases and all outlets covered then.
Little Dutch
It's enough to make you want to puke eh!! A jobs for the boy's club if ever there was one!
LondonGooner
lets see if arsenal win anything this season.............prob not......time for wenger out then 4 years an counting
123spurs
cl sounds great LG but whats the point if yer only in there to make up numbers, like arse have ben doing for few years.
123spurs
Yes, 123spurs, we should follow what you spuds do and chop and change managers constantly. How many managers you spuds had since Wenger took over Arsenal, anyway?
BMF
BMF: 12 managers in as many years during Arsene's tenure. lol And the teams that're in the CL to "make up the numbers" are the Steauas, the the Bates, the Sportings. You can't call a team that consistently qualify for the knock-out stage and do well "making up the numbers". (Yes I'm aware I'm wasting my logical breath with 123.) Another point is, while it's not true that Arsenal are making up the CL numbers, Spurs are now making up the PL numbers - by YOUR logic. You have a chance of turning it around of course.
GoonerLou
123spurs, I suppose it's better than making up the numbers iin the UEFA cup eh?? Until your club can compete with us financially, stadium wise, competitively and historically, i suggest you run back to the corner and face the wall silly boy!
LondonGooner
So the stinking Spuds have nicked our manager. We had plenty of reasons to hate them & this now makes us mad. Thankfully our great links with you have gone up a few notches & we all hope you mash the spuds on Wednesday.
storagematt
ye wud be in uefa cup aswell only that 4 teams go in to cl. ur stadium is quite as a libruary. lookat yer own issues, win nioting this season, pressure on wenger.......an villa right up yer ass
