‘Arry Gets The Tin Tack.*

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 ‘Arry Redknapp’s just been fired
I can feel the Spurs fans ire
Emulate from streets near White Hart Lane
There’s talk of 3 million compensation
Being awarded to a Rosie, forty seven*
Thus avoiding tax, so “Arry” don’t have to pay it!



In Cockney slang: the tin-tack means to get the sack or be sacked.

Rosie, forty seven (“Arry’s” Dog and date of birth) was the name given to Honest “Arry” Redknapp’s off-shore bank account, where he was known to have stashed all his hard-earned to avoid paying British tax on it. As was described fully in the previous trial regarding said bank account by me learned friend m’lud!

I’m so glad we got our manager signed up before this story broke, As I didn’t want “Arry” managing our club no way, and would hate to see Robbie over there in North London at White Hart Lane.

Go well and be lucky.
