Harry Redknapp was almost there.
However speculation mounted as the days turned into weeks that Tottenham Hotspur would need compensating heavily for a manager still with a year to run on his contract. Another negative on Redknapp was his obvious inability to manage Spurs as well as he had and contemplate the role of the national coach.
And then the word was out that the FA had asked for permission to talk to West Brom manager, Roy Hodgson.
Hodgson has had his hands on more clubs than Jack Nicklaus. But his CV fits well with what the FA are probably looking for. Where that leaves West Brom is anyone’s guess.
