KICK IN PANTS FOR POM­PEY

The Football League Paper - - FRONT PAGE -

NEW QPR boss Harry Red­knapp on the per­ils of paying Jose Bos­ingwa £65,000 a week:

“There are a lot of play­ers at this club who earn far too much money, and I don’t really want to see the own­ers have their pants taken down like they have in the past.

“You shouldn’t be paying mas­sive wages when you’ve got a sta­dium that holds 18,000 peo­ple.”

Which is all very laud­able. Un­til you re­mem­ber that Red­knapp hap­pily signed Sol Camp­bell for Portsmouth and didn’t ex­actly com­plain when they handed him £90,000 a week. And what was Pom­pey’s av­er­age at­ten­dance in the Pre­mier League? You guessed it – about 18,000.

So be­fore Harry talks about pulling pants down, he might re­flect that he is part of the rea­son why Portsmouth’s are cur­rently flap­ping round their an­kles.
