Fancy Harry Redknapp turning round to owner Sasha Gaydamak and ask him for 100 million pounds in front of ESPN cameras in an interview? The owner was perplexed and ask what is it for? Harry just said I need it to win the Premier League.
But this Saturday Portsmouth Manager Harry Redknapp hopes to complete the transformation of the south coast club from paupers to princes in FA Cup final at Wembley by beating Cardiff City.Now it is time for Portsmouth first major trophy since skipper Jimmy Guthrie led Jack Tinn’s team to a shock 4-1 win over Wolves in 1939.
Both sides are led by Englishmen. The last time two Englishmen led their teams out at Wembly were Terry Venables and Brian Clough in 1991.Luck and Form will ensure who gets their hands on the FA Cup trophy and have a good summer after May 17th 2008. The money he asked from Sasha to win the EPL can wait as Harry Redknapp goes head to head against Dave Jones on the touchline at Wembley this weekend. Let’s just enjoy this showpiece and hope we are in for some goals too…..
