"No wonder he's in the fucking reserves"


We hereby challenge anyone to come up with a funnier example in the genre of football managers swearing on camera.  Here's that classic clip of Harry Redknapp reacting somewhat unfavourably to having had a football deliberately kicked at his head by one of his players whilst he was giving an interview.  This footage never fails to give us the giggles.  You can never watch it just once as there's so many things to go back and enjoy.  

In particular, the moment after he's delivered his first foul-mouthed outburst to the perpetrator is comedy gold. You can almost feel Redknapp's simmering rage as he tries to regain composure and get back on track but his rapid-fire blinking lets you know that he's been completely distracted from the interview and is more concerned at continuing his rant at whoever clobbered him with the ball. Granted, Harry blinks and twitches a lot at the best of times but in this piece he goes into blinking overdrive as he searches hard for some fitting words to round off his bollocking which he eventually finds and delivers with aplomb.

In our humble opinion nothing comes close to touching Harry in the football manager swearing stakes, especially since the BBC wiped archive material of Alf Ramsey who was captured on film during half time in the 1966 World Cup Final saying to Nobby Stiles "this tea tastes of fucking horse piss".
