Redknapp will always be forgiven in my eyes due to providing the greatest moment I’ve had as a fan.

That was only in the last 10 seconds of a game he had given up on. Most of the credit for that win should have gone to Steve Black & Clint Hill. 'arry had gone on his holidays long before the end.

As always spot on, completely gave up by keeping 2 strikers on when we went down to 10 men absolutely clueless.

That was down to Clint Hill, as I mentioned above. He was the one who said that he should be taken off when they were getting ready to hook Hoilett, I think it was. 'arry had already taken off Kranjcar for Traore to come on. He had already swapped one striker out for Zamora to come on too.
As I mentioned before, 'arry never gave a flying wander about QPR, never referred to us as his team, my boys etc. It was always "They're a good team/ bunch of lads" "The chairman's club" etc. At least Hughes and Bowen had the decency to look really jubilant up at Man City when we knew we were safe, even if it was just so he could keep his never relegated fact intact. Harry never gave a monkey's about QPR.

You are literally the dictionary definition of 'IN THE KNOW'. Whilst most of us less intelligent fans watched us win at Wembley you had the benefit of sitting on the bench next to Harry.
I'm surprised you didn't tell Harry not to bring Zamora on. :roll:

Your constant slagging off of the man is childish and pathetic.

Your constant defence of him is unfathomable. I bet you still haven't read that book I pointed you towards either have you? It's full of facts that you may find unpalatable.

I really enjoyed a visit to speakers corner recently, lots of passionate debate getting disproportionately attached to the facts in the Bible or Quran. I do enjoy a bit of passion wherever the fuel comes from.

I liked the interview Harry gave on the pitch after the play off win, full of emotion, a bit of disbelief and chuffed to bits.

I am sorry that the joy of that moment appears infected with bitterness for some.

I'd have to agree with that. He actually looked deflated while being interviewed amidst all the jubilation on the pitch after the playoff. Amazing to say for a promotion-winning manager, the manner of it was somehow joyless, and it was a relief when he finally slung his hook.

Here you go for all the body language experts: he looks and sounds like a man who's mentally shattered after a very tense and stressful game of football where the team he manages had somehow defied all the odds and grabbed a shock win. I'm sure Wenger, Ferguson, Mourinho, Guardiola etc would've been doing cartwheels on the pitch and giving Richard Dunne a piggy back if they'd been in the same position. :roll:

Like I've said his overall record with us wasn't great and with hindsight he should've been replaced after we got promoted but to claim he is anywhere near the top of our worst managers list is ridiculous.

No it's not, it's eminently obvious to anyone who cares for QPR how poor his spell in charge was. It wasn't just the results, it was the morale, the constant referring to the club in the third person because he had zero affection for us and the ruinous player dealings. What is ridiculous is your constant defence of him. He is a charlatan of the highest order and one of the crookedest people in football. I bet you still haven't read that book either.

This isn't worth a discussion.

Hughes took us from the potential to be a perpetual Premiership Club, with virtually unlimited funds, to hoking down the back of the sofa for enough cash to put in the meter.

Abysmal doesn't begin to describe him.
