Previously TruePompeyBlue called for you to help make David James the SKY Sports goalkeeper of the year – sadly this failed. I then called for you to help make Linvoy Primus – or Optimus Primus as I more affectionately name him – defender of the year, again this unfortunately – but clearly more acceptably – failed.

Now Redknapp completes a hat trick of Pompey personalities in the running for awards, this is what Tom Adams said on his nomination.

‘A bit of trademark wheeling and dealing was the foundation for a tremendous season for Redknapp at Portsmouth. The bargain signings of Sol Campbell, David James and Kanu proved to be an instant success as Pompey even topped the Premiership in September – a marked difference to their struggles the previous season. Although the South Coast side suffered a dip in form in the second half of the campaign, only a dodgy offside decision on the final day of the season cost them a place in Europe for the first time since ‘Nelson invaded somewhere or other’, according to their engaging boss’.

It has been excellent to see Pompey gain recognition from SKY; this shows just how much we have improved in a year.

Redknapp will not win manager of the year – and rightly so, had we made it into the Uefa cup instead of just missing out this could have been different – but is currently, though most importantly wrongly, languishing at the back of the field with David Moyes streets in front.
