I am curious if there is any good will for these new partners?

No ... Relegation will do them good, and serve the owners right for a dreadful decision made before Christmas.

As for Harry, I've always thought the myth and the newspaper hyperbole far outweighed the fact.

They deserve each other - feel sorry for the fans though. After all we've been there already.

I loathe Redknapp, don't care for their owners and apart from not being Villa don't care much for Birmingham city. I'd love to see them get relegated, the only hesitation is we seem to do quite well at St Andrews.

I really wish we'd been the ones to benefit from their ridiculous decision to fire Rowett.

Strange poll. If he does not keep them up we are safe so the answer is obvious

Exactly John. Staying up and Redknapp falling on his face. What's not to like ?

I see Harry's still registered on the forum - "Yes - I wish him and Birminhgam well." has got one vote

It can't be him. By his own admission, he can't work one of those computers that they have now.

Must be Bondy. Or Rosie.

They might not be shiny and polished like modern day managers, they might not have the cutting edge information when it comes to the latetst trends in football but managers like Warnock and Harry can get your lower league club motivated, organized and promoted. I think these managers are vastly under rated. Too many people look at their character traits and not at what they can achieve for a club.
I don't care a bit for Birmingham but wish Harry well there.

Sorry, you think Harry Redknapp is underrated? He was a joke for us. I can see why opinions vary on the majority of topics on here. I can't believe anyone would defend Redknapp.

I'm with you on that.

But it's not about caring --- It's about being blindly judgemental basing opinions on emotions and bigotry and not ever logic or facts.

And those left on here as the number of posters seemingly decrease are the ones getting ever better (and louder) at it. Could there be a link??

He got us promoted.
Something many, bright, upcoming, intelligent, wordly, sophisticated managers with or without cash to spend under various types of regimes in different periods of time have failed to do for us. If you call a manager who gets a small, mediocre club like QPR promoted a joke, then the other managers must have all been far, far worse.

I'm with you mate: he was poor in the Premiership but did a good job getting us promoted, albeit the hard way with that amazing day at Wembley. If people want to remain bitter about him that's up to them.
