Andre Villas-Boas 3/10
Experience: Académica, Porto, Chelsea
Porto - Primeira Liga 2010–11, Taça de Portugal 2010–11, Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira 2010, UEFA Europa League 2010–11
Did the treble in an undefeated season at Porto, albeit in the comparatively weak Portuguese league. Given the impossible task of removing the old guard from Chelsea and was sacked before the end of one season. Spurs's style of pace and attack will suit AVB more than Chelsea did. He's a risk and there's some concern over his experience, but AVB and Spurs could be made for each other.
Laurent Blanc 9/1
Experience: Bordeaux, France
Bordeaux - Ligue 1 2008–09, Coupe de la Ligue 2008–09, Trophée des Champions 2008, 2009.
Successful 3 seasons at Bordeaux, revitalised the French squad after the debacle of the 2010 World Cup and was 23 games unbeaten up until their defeat against Sweden in the group stages of the 2012 Euros. His trophy laden playing career would give him respect and ability to attract and keep top players more than AVB.
Fabio Capello 9/1
Experience: Milan, Real Madrid, Roma, Juventus, England
Milan - Serie A 1991–92, 1992–93, 1993–94, 1995–96, Supercoppa Italiana 1992, 1993, 1994, UEFA Champions League 1993–94, European Super Cup 1994, Coppa Italia Primavera 1984–85
Roma - Serie A 2000–01, Supercoppa Italiana 2001
Juventus - Serie A 2004–05, 2005–06 (both revoked)
Real Madrid - La Liga 1996–97, 2006–07
Excellent club manager that failed at international level. Had a good win percentage but didn't do the business in tournaments. Managing in England, Capello would be tainted from the start and disliked by players that came across him at England. Replacing the media's favourite Redknapp with a failed England manager will have the media buzzing around him and the team piling on the pressure on from the start as well. We don't need another manager who will be in the press constantly.
David Moyes 14/1
Experience: Preston North End, Everton
Preston - Football League Second Division 1999–2000,
Kept a mid table team roughly mid table with no money season after season. Not exactly a progressive move if we employ Moyes as manager.
Tim Sherwood 22/1
Experience: Spurs coaching staff since 2008
No experience yet, best suited as a number two.
Jurgen Klinsmann 25/1
Experience: Germany, Bayern Munich, USA
Reportedly already ruled himself out of the running but is a Tottenham legend who would be welcomed to the lane with open arms. But as manager his staying power appears to be as questionable as it was during is playing career. Two years as German manager before declaring he was tired and an incomplete season at Bayern where he fell out with the hierarchy before taking over as USA manager. If he were awarded the job it would be a risk mostly based on his success here as a player.
Ralf Rangnick 33/1
Experience: VfB Stuttgart II, Reutlingen 05, Ulm 1846, VfB Stuttgart, Hannover 96, Schalke 04, 1899 Hoffenheim
Ulm 1846 - Regionalliga Süd 1996-1997
Stuttgart - UEFA Intertoto Cup 2000
Hannover - 2. Bundesliga 2001-2002
Schalke - DFB-Pokal 2010-2011, DFL-Supercup 2011, DFB-Ligapokal 2005
His honour list features a smattering of lower league titles and domestic cup trophies. With his second spell at Schalke he came in just before a quarter final match in the Champions league, won that and got knocked out in the semi's. Stepped down at the end of the season after claiming exhaustion. Could be out of his depth in the Premier league.
Rafa Benitez 40/1
Experience: Real Madrid B, Real Valladoid, Osasuna, Extremadure, Tenerife, Valencia, Liverpool, Inter
Real Madrid U-19s - Spain U-19 League 1993, Spain U-19 Cup 1991, 1993
Extremadura - Segunda División 1997–98
Tenerife - Segunda División 2000–01
Valencia - La Liga 2001–02, 2003–04, UEFA Cup 2003–04
Liverpool - UEFA Champions League 2004–05, FA Cup 2005–06, FA Community Shield 2006, UEFA Super Cup 2005
Internazionale - Supercoppa Italiana 2010, FIFA Club World Cup 2010
Hasn't exactly left his last two jobs with much glory and has been unemployed since being fired from his job at Inter. Went a little bit mental under pressure last time he was in the Premier League. I'd rather have him on the soccer am sofa than the Tottenham bench.
Roberto Martinez 40/1
Experience: Swansea City, Wigan
Swansea City - Football League One 2007–08
Half a good season at Wigan, a top manager it makes not.
Pep Guardiola 50/1
Experience: Barcelona B, Barcelona
Barcelona B - Tercera División 2007–08
Barcelona - La Liga 2008–09, 2009–10, 2010–11, Copa del Rey 2008–09, 2011–12, Supercopa de España 2009, 2010, 2011, UEFA Champions League 2008–09, 2010–11, UEFA Super Cup 2009, 2011, FIFA Club World Cup 2009, 2011
Has already won many many trophies at Barcelona, but how hard is that with the best team in the world? Completely unproven outside of Barcelona, let alone Spain and could find it difficult adapting to a different league and different style of play. Likely to command monumental wages as well. Risky and very unlikely.
Jose Mourinho 66/1
Experience: Porto, Chelsea, Inter, Real Madrid
Porto - Primeira Liga 2002–03, 2003–04, Taça de Portugal 2002–03, Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira 2003, UEFA Champions League 2003–04, UEFA Cup 2002–03
Chelsea - Premier League 2004–05, 2005–06, FA Cup 2006–07, Football League Cup 2004–05, 2006–07, FA Community Shield 2005
Internazionale - Serie A 2008–09, 2009–10, Coppa Italia 2009–10, Supercoppa Italiana 2008, UEFA Champions League 2009–10
Real Madrid - La Liga 2011–12, Copa del Rey 2010–11
Proven winner wherever he goes. Would bring masses of media attention, but he is the one man it would be worth it for. Completely different management style to the one the players would be used to from under Redknapp but would command immediate respect and would make keeping and signing top players easy. It's not going to happen, but it would be brilliant if it did.
Jamie Redknapp 66/1
Experience: 2 days a week coaching at Spurs under Harry.
Honours: Married to Louise Redknapp.
Was no doubt fired along with his dad. I can't beleive this is as low as 66/1. We need a manager not a model! Not even worth a cheeky £1 bet.
Talking of very cheeky little bets though, the premier league odds are already out and Spurs are joint fifth favourite at 25/1 to win the premier league next season....
