Ah, so ‘Arry Redknapp has threatened to boycott the press if they punish him for his comments about the game at the weekend.
As I covered yesterday, he’s upset because his keeper threw the ball to the opposition and let them score. Obviously he’ll blame anyone he can rather than address the real issue, his soft headed GK.
So, presumably, by boycotting the press Harry will stop writing his Sun column. Oh, wait, he won’t at all, because that earns him money. And anyway, the Sun are ‘triffic lads, and it’s great fun blowing your horn nationally to a readership that consists of tit monkeys and chin dribblers. The fact that ‘Arry writes for the Sun, a national newspaper that prides itself on misreporting stories for headlines (remember when they decided Cesc was learning Russian to speak to Arshavin on pitch, after Arshavin said “I just shouted and he passed the ball”) tells you all you need to know about the attention seeking stroke faced wanker.
Also, without the pre/post match interview ‘Arry will be unable to tap any players up, like that ‘triffic lad from up the road that has a ‘triffic talent, an excellent workrate, course I’d love ‘im ‘ere”.
‘Arry is a character that thrives on publicity, thrives in the public eye (ironic given the fact his face is collapsing over one of his own) and uses the press more than they use him (something uncommon in the world of football soundbites). For him to suggest he’ll boycott the press is cutting his nose off to spite his face.
But how has football got to this point? Everyone suggests that player power has become too much, no player is bigger than the team. But what about manager power? Why is one manager better than the rest of the league?
The FA set a dangerous precedent when they allowed Sir Alex Baconface to boycott the BBC. His lad did some stuff he shouldn’t have, and instead of accepting that he got caught out, Baconface
