Harry Redknapp wins Oscar for transfer window performance
Harry Redknapp left Premiership side Portsmouth a few months ago and soon after joined relegation bound Southampton with the single task of avoiding relegation.
Here is as clear a reason as any why Harry Redknapp is such a good manager. Look at what he has done in the transfer window this January:
Five players have joined Redknapp at Southampton: son and Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp, Calum Davenport, Nigel Quashie, and just as the transfer window closed, Henri Camara from Celtic and Olivier Bernard from Newcastle.
Those are five good players; compare that to the work the previous two Southampton managers have done this year and looking at the side now, this was as winning a performance in January as any in Europe.
