Harry Redknapp 1994 - 2001

Player Debuts

Crafty Cockney character who is East London born and bred and grew up in the ‘West Ham Way’. Began his Football League managerial career at Bournemouth but returned to Upton Park in July 1992 (two months after the club were relegated from the top flight) to become assistant to former Hammers team-mate Billy Bonds. They won promotion to the Premiership at the end of Harry’s first season in tandem with Bonzo. ‘H’ took sole charge of the team in August 1994. Media-friendly Harry enjoyed a reputation as a shrewd wheeler-dealer in the transfer market, picking up bargains and selling them on for good profit. In an era of grossly inflated transfer fees. Smashed the British transfer record when selling home-grown Rio Ferdinand for an astonishing £18m in November 2000. After surviving near relegation in 1996-97, Harry recovered well to lead Hammers to eighth place in 1997-98 and fifth place a year later - our highest position for 13 years - and a return to serious European competition for the first time since 1981. Regardless of success of failure on the field, under Harry Redknapp, West Ham United maintained its tradition for playing attacking, entertaining football. However, the team’s failure to progress and subsequent brush with relegation towards the end of the campaign led to Harry coming under fire from many fans, and just days after the club’s Premiership survival had been secured with a 3-0 victory over Southampton, the shock announcement was made that Harry would be leaving Upton Park, after almost seven years in charge.
