Revolving doors

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Wednesday 8th February 2012

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Early doors –
a conviction loomed
and one assumed
that a guilty verdict
would leave ‘Arry ‘andicapped
for a job so bittersweet
it should come candy wrapped

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 and Fabio
only needed “eeny, meeny, minie, mo”
to let us know
that it had to be – Stevie G – obvious_ly

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 but how it swung
some pendulum
‘Arry & Mandaric acquitted
while Fabio fumed – and submitted – his resignation

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 and so
in one short, sharp wintry afternoon
we see the incumbent depart
and the money smart
land on yer one leaving court
whereas ‘JT fraught’
Fabio relinquishes his FA chores
and exits through – revolving doors



what a turnup for the books!

what an extraordinary day.
At the outset, conviction and possibly jail loomed for Harry Redknapp.

And then Fabio Capello was called before FA Chairman, David Bernstein, to answer to comments he made to an Italian tv station.

Fabio was upset that the FA went over his head to sack John Terry as England captain, before his offical court case even opened. (It wasn’t due to sit until after the Euro 2012 competition).

Presumably, Fabio and Mr Bernstein didn’t see eye to eye, and so Fabio resigned.

Mr Bernstein’s official statement does allude to Mr Capello’s unwavering good conduct through all his time in office.

And so, by the end of the day, Harry Redknapp had gone from potential convict to likely England conscript!
