Harry Redknapp answers FourFourTwo readers' questions back in September 2003, when he was manager of Portsmouth.

Even at 200 yards, a wide grin can be seen crossing the familiar features of football's favourite Cockney, a reassuring sight as he guides the newly promoted Portsmouth squad through their first day back in training after the summer break. The former West Ham boss is preceded into the canteen by Jim Smith and Steve Stone as players munch their way through plate-loads of cold meat and pasta. It's such an English scene you are almost surprised not to see eggs and bacon on the menu.
