When Harry met Daniel and other job interviews.


 Any bets on this re-union at White Hart Lane?


Greg appears as 'deep throat' Meyer, this time, going underground for the inside story of the comings and goings in the courts and  in the boardroom: of the wheeler dealings above even Harry's head. He bestrides the whole of Europe and ranges from South Korea to Turkey, from the attractions of birthday girl Bo Derrick, to the Tottenham High Rd. Never mind the quality feel the width.

20 November 2011 ... A Sex Symbol Turns 55 ... Surely Not.



When Harry Met Daniel Who Met Carlo Who Met Gus ... Another Job Interview.
.



First it was the elegant Italian reclining outside the Chairman's palatial office suite,High Road Tottenham. So what's an avuncular looking Dutchman doing in the same spot sporting a natty bowtie and an engraved watch bearing the inscription "All the best from your Chelsea Team 2009." Two days later in May 2009 it was the said elegant Italian interviewee that took over the Chelsea job as our Dutchman returned to Russia.Small world. Ironic world.
.


Within the mandatory briefcase (embossed in gold with the Initials G.H. as if you hadn't already guessed) nestling in the Dutchman's lap is an illustrious Curriculm Vitae. Probably second to none. Unlike Carlo there is a glowing testimonial from Roman Abramovich. Indeed that might be a clue to the size of the task facing our Daniel in obtaining the services of the well credentialled Herr Hiddink.
.


On the World stage he is a national hero in South Korea, would probably get the Aussie prime-ministership if he wanted it, as well as a semi finalist with Holland. On the club level successful at Chelsea and a European Cup winner managing PSV just to name a few.
.


Too big, too successful, and too expensive for Spurs? Despite his recent Turkish Euro belly up at the hands of our Luka and others, a manager of his calibre, his charisma, his undoubted man maneagement skills and head for the big stage make him very sought after.
.


So why the suggestions of discrete discussions over the management structure at our North London club. Of course most recently the manager causing the fuss was Senor Villas-Boas and his chasing of a certain Spurs superstar.
.
The L. Factor.
.


Not our Luka this time but a certain Judge Anthony Leonard QC is the cause of managerial cogitations and those somewhat subdued evening meals at Chez Sandbanks. Sandra's culinary expertise is being called upon to keep spirits up. Nothing to do with her undoubted talent at scoring unmissable headers this time. Ironically enough young Darren Bent does crop up next at the Lane on Monday night.
.


Henry James Redknapp has an away match set for 23 January 2012 at the Southwark Crown Court.With the Storrie and Mandaric recent tax case being finalised, apparently in favour of  the away respondents (some cause for encouragement for Team Redknapp no doubt) then the reporting ban has been lifted.
.


Our pub lawyer reckons it is not an easy one to call.A common Crown tactic of hoping the mud belonging to a co defendant is sufficient to stick fatally on the other is possibly in play. As well seems there is a torturous paper chase extending from England, Florida and Monaco at least.
.


Was the alleged transfer to Mr. Redknapp merely a loan or as the Crown seem to assert a payment upon which tax was due. Certainly not an easy one to call this far out. Particularly with a reporting ban having just been lifted. The heat is on in a certain Sandbanks kitchen.


Much easier to call and swapping hospitals and court rooms for a familiar dugout, welcome back Harry to White Hart Lane for the coming of the football Villains.

A Quick Look Around At A Kent Pub.
.


It's tight for third at the moment. If we beat Villa then we join Chelsea on third with a game in hand. So long as Liverpool fall at the Stamford Bridge today.Newcastle also on third have begun their descent says our flower gardner.
.


We have the classier attack, and with you know who still at centre back then surely enough to snuff out the threat of Mrs Sandra Bent and Gabby Unspellable. Both doing well so far for Villa.
.


Speaking of our centre back Rolls Royce surely a candidate for the Oops ,I'll Say That Again Differently Department. Reports this week were talking of an England return. Look after his last World Cup 45 minutes(his only game) lets just hope there are enough games on the meter this year for a Spurs return next year says our cabbie.
.


After two weeks on International holiday our pub are just looking forward to seeing Van Man, Gareth, Luka, Ade, Little Scotty, new found superstar Kyle and a host of others. A mouthwatering prospect.
.


Speaking of superstars. For all you cricket lovers Australia have just unearthed a fast bowling superstar. Pat Cummings, 3 years younger than Gareth Bale, has just taken 6/79against South Africa on debut. His fourth first class match.Mind S. A. will probably romp in with a Test victory.
.


Before we go, that sexy 55 year old birthday. Bo Derek who our pub playboy, Mine Host, says has aged beautifully.


Cheers ... great to have some proper football back ... Greg meyer.     coys.

 And now just to prove that Greg's abilities extend beyond just football here is the aforesaid Bo Derrick strutting her stuff on the beach. He sure can pick 'em. A winner every time. Not bad for 55 though when this was filmed I'm not sure.

I think your theory will be overtaken by events.
Abramovich has sacked better managers than Villas-Boas.
Hiddinck could be the new Chelsea manager by Xmas.
