Harry Redknapp’s memory is going if the former QPR boss’s radio interview this week is anything to go by.
The man who quit for health reasons a day after the January transfer window closed answered criticism he let transfer opportunities slip in summer and again in January.
The player suggesting the gaffe was Joey Barton, who later Tweeted his barb wasn’t aimed at Redknapp, but at someone else. As that leaves only one other person, good luck with the new contract when you chat to owner Tony Fernandes, Joey.
Even so, Redknapp downplayed the money available to him in the summer. If numerous reports are to be believed, Harry and QPR coughed up something close to £37 million in loans and permanent buys.
In January, they recouped £5.75m on the sale of Jordon Mutch to Crystal Palace, who always seemed out of sorts at Loftus Road.
Yes, and add to that Sandro, Alex McCarthy, Mutch, and the loan fees for Mauricio Isla and Eduardo Vargas - loans have to be paid for, and Vargas has commanded up to £2 million in the past.
Ferdinand didn’t come cheap either.
Admittedly, the defender took a massive cut from the riches he earned at Manchester United, but take your pick on a figure between £60k-£80k a week wages for eight Premier League starts.
Rs fans can be the judge of how much the ex-England player has contributed, and for that matter, the other six new faces.
The club is coy on exact totals but they spent more than Tottenham, West Ham and Everton by the time the August transfer window shut.
Their final position on said spenders list was ninth, and they would take your hand off for that lofty perch in the real league come the end of the season.
