First and foremost, I would like to give the Toon Army a nice, friendly, "Hello! I'm not quite dead yet." I do apologize for my extended leave of absence from the site, but North East Arkansas Junior High School Girl's Basketball sometimes has to take precedence over the greatest football team in all the land... what a life I lead.
1. We might as well begin with the hot button issue around White Hart Lane, do you think 'Arry will be leaving you for the England job? If so, in what capacity, do you think he'll do double duty, or will Tottenham be on the hunt for a new manager? What are your feelings about the whole episode? Do you actually root for Redknapp's leaving if it means you can bring in Jose Mourinho?
I do think Harry will leave for the England job, and I think the timing will be similar to when Steve McClaren left. The FA will wait until Tottenham are very late into their season, perhaps until they've mathematically clinched a top-four place, before making any kind of announcement. If he gets hired earlier than that, I assume he'll do double-duty until the season is over. In any event, I do not expect Harry Redknapp to be Tottenham's manager in June. Harry's a good manager, but if England pays us to get him, I'm not too broken up about him leaving. Our success has more to do with Gareth Bale and Luka Modric than it does the manager. I'd be thrilled with Mou, but plenty happy with David Moyes, Guus Hiddink, Fabio Capello or one of the up and coming managers in Spain, France or Germany.
