Not so long ago we bagged a really nice profit on the next Wolves manager market. For some time it looked like the world and his dog wanted Harry Redknapp to get the England job and it seemed a sensible appointment. You could have ad ‘arry to lay to 1.27 at best. But the FA, as they have proven on many occasions, are not the general population. They are a largely politcial entity.

If you read his bio, it looks like he was a key England candidate in the year 2000. So far in his managerial career, spanning 36 years, he has managed 19 clubs.
