The game of musical chairs continues in the English Premier League (in the spirit of Unprofessional Foul, suck it, Barclay’s) as ol ‘Arry has been told in no uncertain terms where to stick it by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy after what seemed like several offenses:
- blowing a 10-point hold on the 3rd place spot to Arsenal and that was the last CL qualification spot, it turned out, because Chelsea won the CL trophy
- being distracted by the media’s anointing of him as the successor to Fabio Capello in the England job
- taking to television and making noise about a three or four-year extension with 12 months still on a contract
To be fair to Redknapp, he helped turn Spurs into a Champions League threat when they were in the dumps — but Levy has blanked at hardball before when it comes to players and so probably barely batted an eye at telling Harry to go away. The media favorite rumor for a replacement is Everton’s David Moyes, because every time a job with a better financial situation and appeal to players than Everton comes up, that’s what happens.
