Redknapp would be out of his gourd to walk from spurs to us. Better positioned than us, better financed, infinitely stronger squad in depth. You'd be swapping a massaging back pillow for a cricket bat to the shins.
There's absolutely zero chance of Redknapp being interested in the job. Dalglish is apparently looking for permission from Capello to fly out to SA to speak with Gerrard and Carragher about the situation at Anfield. I reckon Kenny has his hands full trying to convince senior players to remain committed to the club, and probably doesn't have a much on offer to allay their fears. If his influence can keep big name players happy then fair fucks to him. Looks like Benayoun is off to play musical benches at Stamford Bridge. Pity but there was bound to be at least one player to wash his hands straight away and at 30 he's probably only got two more good seasons in him.
I'm still torn about the managerial shortlist. My head says someone like Hodgson, a very good manager with Premier League experience, used to a small budget for whom the job would be a step up (plus his missus is a scouser). My heart says Louis Van Gahl whom is a world class coach that would show the players and the fans and the rest of the footballing world that the club means business. Given his options it's highly unlikely though. I reckon Pellegrini makes a lot of sense financially too but might be a gamble.
Just please, NOT O'Neill and DOUBLE NOT Hughes. I'd take a season of Dalglish over those nightmares.
