Today's rumours are a man down

L'Arry Redknapp, anyone? That's how we may soon have to refer to the man who is not being used to bash Roy Hodgson so much these days ever since Hodgson won sceptics over by guiding England to two squeaky victories at Euro 2012 before they were comprehensively outplayed by the first decent team they came up against, as usual. While all that was happening, it may have escaped your attention that Tottenham jilted their erstwhile manager, who quickly declared his ambition to return to gaffership at the first suitable opportunity. Would an opportunity that could entail speaking a language other than Engerlish and ingratiating himself with a whole new pack of press 'ounds be considered suitable? Marseille hope so, as, according to decidedly dubious chatter in the ether, they are hoping to entice L'Arry to the south of France, a region where football is a passion and dogs have bank accounts.
