Daniel Levy vs Harry Redknapp, The Feud!

OK, so the transfer window has come to a close for us long suffering fans of THFC, it is a divisive opinion amongst several judging from the posts i've read, however it seems to have bought to attention a rift between Mssrs Levy and Redknapp that, on the surface at least, seems to be widening.

Now i'm trying to write this in a neutral fashion, and just putting forward the facts (or as close too the facts available via whatever means possible) for consideration as they are appearing. Now we have gone through a few transfer windows since the appointment of one Mr Harry Redkanpp, the self appointed and media darling 'wheeler dealer', and I think it fair to say with this in mind we all expected big things in the transfer market, but this hasn't been the case has it?

Daniel Levy backed Harry in the first instance with his dealings over Keane, Defoe, Kaboul etc, last January apparently Levy told Harry to buy in a big name striker, Suarez was linked (and we all know HR's thought's and excuses on that), Benzema, Hulk, Huntelaar.........the list seemed endless, result? A deadline deal for a midfielder, Charlie Adam, that failed to materialise due to a Blackpool director not signing a legal document.

Daniel Levy was seen to bring in VDV and Sandro, without, on the face of it, Harry being kept up to speed on the deals, is he also behind bringing in Adebayor? Harry has put forward names such as Beckham, Neville, Rio Ferdinand, Cole, players all in the twilight of their careers, as possible acquisitions, he also in many opinions, failed to rotate the squad both effectively and tactically, also he was reluctant to play some of our young talent.

Peter Crouch said (referring to HR) on his transfer to Stoke, and I quote, 'He has brought in players and would have been difficult for me to get a game, and I know he rates me and he has always looked after me btu it is time to move on'', but i think everyone knows about Harry & Crouch, according to other sources Levy forced him to leave by telling him he wouldn't be named in the 25 man squad for the EPL this season, so again, on the face of it, Levy has taken the bull by the horns and gone about his business possibly against Harry's wishes.

Then we have the Modric saga, with Harry changing tack at every opportunity, if it is to be believed he threatened to resign if Modric was sold, was this before or after he stated that if he was sold we could get in one or two other players and therefore make the team stronger? Levy was seen to make a stand, was seen to back his manager/trainer, but Harry seemingly intent in contradicting both himself and Levy. So what is to be made of this? Has Levy finally taken the task on himself of pushing Harry to make way for the youngsters? Was it he that finally decided on clearing out the deadwood?

Was the apparent dilly dallying from Harry on transfer targets, his seeming uncertainty as to who would fit into the squad, the final straw for Levy? As I said in the beginning, I've tried to write this in a neutral manner and present the facts as they appear, as to the solution, well, there can only be one can't there? Harry, one way or another, whether it be prison or the England job, is surely on his last legs at this club.
