A study in the difference between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’
with the 2004 / 2005 mid-season transfer window fast approaching.
Harry Redknapp, now in charge of Southampton, is quoted today as saying :
(the following from Teamtalk.com)
“I will have to beg, steal or borrow a few players because this group would not even get us out of the Championship,” he said.
“If there is no money and it means selling in order to get in three or four who will make us a better team then I will do that.
“We need three or four for sure. We seem to have acquired a lot of players but not enough quality and that must be sorted out.
“It will be a tough job – but I think we can stay up. I’m confident I can do that job – but it will be hard, that’s for sure!
“I suppose if you are looking to sell, then our goalkeeper and up front would be our main assets but I want to keep them. Right now I’m thinking about what players I can nick or borrow.”

Wow. That is a fantastic tale John.Thank you. Funny and sad but hysterical. You totally captured the vibe back then.I was too small to see in those huge crowds at the Bridge when i first went to Chelsea on Dec 25 ’57 (Chelsea 7-4 Portsmouth (when Greaves scored 4) but remember …ev’ry week so well …the old Peanut sellers chucking their peanuts to the crowd .And then us chucking our sixpences back .(Tanner a bag) And then stamping on them or chucking back the shells at our mates and the cops too. God Bless Mrs Michella the Crystal Palace peanut seller….and all long gone peasnut sellers.
