Redknapp calls idea “scandalous”


Harry Redknapp - Tottenham Hotspur News

Scrap promotion and relegation from the Premier League?  Not if Harry Redknapp has got anything to do with it!  The Spurs boss has voiced his opposition to the idea and is concerned about the influence what foreign owners are having.

Fourteen of the 20 Premier League clubs would have to back the idea for it to have a chance of being put through, but Redknapp has rightly blasted the idea.

“How can you not have promotion and relegation? It’s scandalous,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“What is the league about? When the play-offs first came in in the Championship and the first and second divisions, people said we don’t want the play-offs, but they have been a fantastic thing.

“It keeps the league going. Years ago, with 10 games to go, the league was over. If you were not going to win the league, be promoted or relegated then you would switch off, now everyone is fighting for something.

“It is competition, teams trying to stay up. What is more exciting than the last day of the season when teams are looking to stay up and win the championship? You have to have promotion and relegation.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I ask the question is it dangerous too have teams buying players they cat afford too stay in the money laden Premiership . For teams too come up with grounds not ready to play in the premiership like Blackpool or Wigan average crowd 17,000 when Leeds who get 30,000 and trust me without revenue some teams go down the dodgy route to stop relegation enhancements being one. The best way is like Rugby league and three year licences and Money crowd ground and winning a cup or the Championship has another point tick all the boxes and you get in for three .

  2. davspurs “Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this son of york”

    I could accuse you of circumscrivation but I won’t you’re just bonkers mate.What did you do at Mrs Hardcastles school for bad spellers.=they cat afford, are you talking about pussy here? Laden is this a discourse on Bin?Too is too much not the “Verb du montorage” to. I went to the bog, I went to put my head in the gas oven whereas TOO gives us the notion of like I was straining TOO much on the bog and my Asshole got too tweaky.Get the point? Does loon tick all your boxes? By the way saw you in aldi getting the snide revlon, don’t deny it!!!!!

  3. as for this issue , well we are already watching teams that purport to be Arsenal, spurs and Leeds but who are we really watching? A collection of put together by chance individuals that have nothing to do with an area. So Football supporting is so abstract now we must raise the question of if its making sense. Do you think a fucking weasal from downtown Pula is a Spurs man or another from the Ivory Coast.
    All the world's a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players:
    With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
    Full of wise saws and modern instances;
    And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
    Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
    With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,
    His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
    For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
    Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
    And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
    That ends this strange eventful history,
    Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
    Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.Sans davspurs

    t the next comedy act commence. No relegation ? Oh well lets start another thing to do Saturday.
