FA chairman David Bernstein — the man who showed Fabio Capello the door — was at the Lamex Stadium yesterday to witness a fifth-round 0-0 draw.
Redknapp said: "I bet he was impressed by the football I served up!
"He's probably thinking 'Who's this geezer?!'
"We started lumping it didn't we? No, that wasn't part of the plan. The pitch was bumpy and the players weren't comfortable passing the ball on it so we ended up going long, which wasn't what we wanted to do."
