Harry "Dodgy Geezer" Redknapp's manager of the year award is to be investigated by the fraud squad following allegations that for the second year running the rightful recipient had missed out. Roy Hodgson, manager of Fulham, has again missed out, prompting cries of foul play.
Hodgson, manager of the only English club side to reach a European final this year, has yet again been treated badly. Redknapp, managing a club with a bigger budget, has been dogged by allegations of financial irregularities, which he has strenuously denied.
Fulham spokesman Tony Bunsen said "What does Roy have to do? He should have got the award last year, now he does even better this year and still nothing. It all seems a bit strange to me."
Detective Inspector Wally Hammond, leading the investigation, expects to interview all those involved in selecting Redknapp, unless he gets an envelope full of cash very soon. Tottenham spokesman Larry Bumburglar said "We have done nothing wrong. Harry assures me that the award is legitimate. He has also sold me a really nice Cortina, with very little on the clock."
Fulham are expected to just suffer in silence yet again. Redknapp is expected to make as much money as possible from the award.
