image for Harry Redknapp To Be Given The Freedom Of The Borough Of Haringey To Go With The Freedom Of Portsmouth
Redknapp (1916)

Harry Redknapp, the new, and most successful Tottenham manager in living memory, is to be awarded with the the Freedom of the Borough of Haringey at a civic gala in recognition of his wonderful services to Spurs.

It is the second such honour to be bestowed upon Harry in recent weeks, after receiving the Freedom of Portsmouth just two days after abandoning Fratton Park to move to White Hart Lane.

Harry, who has been likened to his famous namesakes Potter and Houdini for his magical powers of escape, had said that Portsmouth was his "spiritual home", which doesn't say much for his spirituality.

Spurs haven't lost since Harry took over the reins, beating Liverpool and Bolton , as well as scraping a draw with their north London rivals, Arsenal. Their latest victory came in a 4-0 trouncing of Dinamo Zagreb in the UEFA Cup tonight.

Redknapp will hope he is received at Haringey Town Hall better than he was at Portsmouth two weeks ago, where he was roundly booed and heckled. Harry's deputy at Pompey, Tony Adams, said:

"Good riddance to him! Dropped us right in the shit, gnarly-faced old wanker!"
