Keane/Redknapp

Recommended Posts

Rafa's now had a bit of a go at Redknapp.

 

'All i'll say is that i'm not happy with what their manager had to say, that's it'.

 

I only saw Redknapp say something along the lines of, 'he's a great player and i'd be lying if I said I wouldn't like to work with him but he's Liverpool's player and he belongs to them so I don't wanna upset them at all. I can't see anything happening'.

 

Did I miss something?

Just had a pop at Redknapp and Spurs over comments about Keane

 

Spot on, especially after the stink they kicked up over us in the summer

 

Would have put it in one of the other myraid of Rafa threads but it's neither about him getting sacked or staying

Redknapp has said he wants Keane a few times.

 

If it was the other way round Redknapp would be going mad.

 

BTW does Redknapp have a pres conference every day? It seems like it. The cunts never off tv talking about who he'd like to sign. Or how them losing is all the players fault.

Probably needs saying about Redknapp, but it might make sense for Rafa to keep a reasonably low profile at the moment and not bother with that shit.

 

 

It was in response to a question, had he fudged it, considering the current climate, he would have only been throwing more petrol on the bombfire.

If we win the next five games I think he a genius for doing this. If not then he is a destabilizing fool.

 

 

Yeah, the tit

Has anyone forgotten we issued a public apology to Spurs and donated an amount to a charity of their choice only because Rafa confirmed they were looking at Keane?

 

Why is that dopey-faced clown allowed to do exactly the same without an eyebrow being raised?

It seems to me he's trying to do what Mourinho did. Make a huge blaze of publicity, so the focus is all on him, leaving the players to relax with the pressure off them, and get focused on winning the league. Er.. it hasn't really happened for us the same way admittedly.

The whole basis of them lodging a complaint with the FA, and crying the little bitches, was after similar comments from Rafa.

Was our interest in Keane as a response to a direct question or did we come out with it ourselves? I really can't remember, hence the questions!

 

I just don't see the point in it.

What was the headline?

 

"NUTCASE BENITEZ GOES MENTAL"

Ferguson said to be happy

 

Nah, I think that was about 16 thread names on here though.

I seem to remember Rafa was directly asked about Keane, and said "he is one of the players we are looking at".

Rafa was asked a question which he answered in a similar tone to Mr Brown Envelope, that in itself is harmless enough, but Spurs basically got us on a technicality.

 

The technicality being that the quotes where run on LFC.TV, which Spurs argued that it proved we were trying to tap him up, as it had been run by the clubs in house media, which they argued, must have been with approval.

 

Truth be told it was a cock up on our part but I find it fucking infuriating that car crash face and that fucking shyster Levi have the fucking balls to moan about us on one hand and then tap every fucker up publically with no comeback.

 

Sbragia commented on it last week when he accused them of tapping Kenwyne Jones up, this only being a few weeks after Redknapp was talking publicly about Defoe whilst still being a Portsmouth player.

If he's unhappy that Redknapp is talking about Keane in public and trying to unsettle him, why shouldn't he say so when asked?

 

He wasn't asked that. He was asked, 'We heard yesterday that you have received an approach from Spurs for Robbie Keane, can you confirm or deny that?'

 

He usually just plays it with a straight bat but obviously wanted to have a bit of a pop at Redknapp.

 

I just don't understand the correlation between the two situations; Spurs reported us for tapping Keane up, not asking a question about him in a press conference. Have Spurs tapped Keane up? No idea, but that's not what Rafa was complaining about is it?

It's a bit like another man saying he wouldn't mind a go on a girl that you were with but barely "touched" (talked to).

Why can't he just shut the fuck up?

The Rafa I love just gets on with it and sorts shit out - starting Sunday. Yes, the media are twats, but why give them any more ammo

All Rafa needs to do to stop comments like this is to treat his £20m striker like a £20m asset instead of an errant schoolchild.

 

Is true and it's not that much different from Tevez at United and the media were stiring that up to
