City Similar To Chelsea Says Redknapp

City Similar To Chelsea Says Redknapp

Tottenham boss, Harry Redknapp believes Manchester City will win the Premier League within four or five years. 'It's like Chelsea all over again. They're so wealthy.'

The 63-year-old's comments come from a man who knows just about everything there is to know about the English game.

Harry, who began his managerial career at League One side Bournemouth told Sky Sports magazine...

'They'll (Man City) will win the Premier League in the next four or five years. It's like Chelsea all over again. They're so wealthy; the man that owns them can buy any player he wants. It's not a problem to them. They can pay the wages that they want to. Really, they're impossible to compete with. In the end they'll win. They'll get the best players and if you've got the best players then eventually you are going to have the best team.'

'Arry, who still lives on the south coast, Sandbanks to be precise, continued...

'Sure it's about getting the right team but the manager's not a fool, I'm sure he can get a team to gel together. With an open chequebook available, I think Man City will definitely win the league in the next few years if the owner chooses to stay with it.'

Harry is widely respected within the football industry; however, I wonder how many of you reading the above agree with the so-called 'wheeler-dealer'.

Well, "Sandbanks" is just about right for 'Arry. I suggest it'll Sinking Sandbanks when they get booted out of the Champions League in the Qualifiers. Still hunting for players on the cheap I see.

If there's one gaffer who talks about City with bizarre regularity it's Harold Redknapp. It's bordering on monthly. Taggart, maybe twice a year alongside Gollum Moyes and Mad Professor O'Neill. Ancelotti rarely. No other managers can be arsed. Just what is it about Harry and City?

"It's like Chelsea all over again." Hmm, similar. Except we actually won trophies. It didn't take us 4 or 5 years of spending to win stuff. That's the difference. We had most of a team there ready for new additions. Today's City squad is nothing like it was 3 years ago.

LLB - this is City's second year of spending under ADUG, where you getting 4 or 5 years from?

Don't forget that Matthew Harding RIP had helped out Ken Bates with big investment in the mid 90's as City nosedived towards the third division. Fast forward and Ranieri benefitted from the stable foundations and CFC were an established top side. Apart from City and Chelsea having wealthy owners, IMHO comparison should stop there.

''The 63-year-old's comments come from a man who knows just about everything there is to know about the English game.'' - Everything exept maybe how to win the league.

however City will be dangerous this season and i tip them to go all the way to second behind CFC
03/08/2010 12:58:00
or third!!!

The Shiekks made a wrong decision here, they needed to buy a team that was already established i.e. great coach and regularly finishing in top 6 or 7, if the Shiekhs wanted instant success and not waste so much money, I may be bias, but a team like everton or cilla wouldve been a better bet.
