    I know there are a few Redknapp threads about today but I've seen a few suggestions that he will manage both us and England until May. Would you be happy with this?

    There would be a distraction for him for sure. But I think, assuming he isn't our boss for the new season, then I'd rather he stayed and did both jobs till May. Better to have half a Harry than none, and I don't want us panic-appointing a new manager in February of our most crucial season for years.

    I don't think Jordan and Bond's bus parking manoeuvre will see us into third I'm afraid.... (slightly tongue in cheek!)

    Nah not for me. Full concentration on an already difficult job.

    Not really but it's better than Tim Sherwood or some clown like Rafa Benitez. There's only 1 England game until the Euros. And as I've said in another thread, he needs to keep winning with Spurs for the benefit of his career at the very least.

    We've managed to get to 3rd and stay there despite Redknapp having a heart attack and heart surgery and his court case.

    Yes. Begrudgingly.

    Rather have Redknapp part time (and that would be the majority of the time) than have to panic buy a new manager mid season and have to bring in someone brand new and just hope for it to work out.

    You're missing an option in the poll though. Assuming that Harry wants the England job the choice isn't between "Begrudgingly. Would rather this than lose him altogether" and "Hell no. He should only be concentrating on Spurs". But rather between "Begrudgingly. Would rather this than lose him altogether", "No, would rather he left and we brought in someone new" and "No, would rather we forced him to stay". Those are the actual options Levy would face if Harry really wants the England job more than the Spurs job.

    Every Spurs fan in the world (with one or two exceptions perhaps) would obviously rather have Harry full time, focused and concentrated on Spurs rather than part time if the choice was that simple.

    Begrudgingly... this is probably the least disruptive way forward. Can't see Harry not going, at least if it happens quickly the inevitable media frenzy and speculation would end (to a certain extent)
    Of course this is the kind of media attention we now deserve as a big club......

    No

    He should focus on one job, if he does both he's far more likely to just do both badly.

    England have one game between now and the end of the season.
    It will hardly be sharing.

    I feel like we will have little choice. To get someone new in at this stage could potentially derail us anyway. Whilst Redknapp critics will say is he such a good manager, you just know the players (as well as the majority of fans) will be absolutely gutted to see him leave. Players seem to love playing for him. Even Rooney wants him! The media will see it happen, and once offered, there is no way he will say no unfortunately.

    I voted hell no, he needs to fully focus on Tottenham Hotspur.

    I would. My only reluctance would be what the English players playing for us would think. What would happen if King were to not get selected for England; Richards getting in ahead of Walker etc.

    I don't think King should be selected, not sure his knees could take that many games in a short time.

    I would accept it up until the Euros, I think it possibly might be the least disruptive option. I wouldn't be in favour of him wanting to combine both roles on a full time basis though and I have a feeling that might be what he would like to do. I think it will be a wrench for him to either turn England down or leave us - as I said in another thread it is a scenario I could see the FA being more receptive to than Daniel Levy.

    Would be great when there is an England friendly and a big game coming up for us on Saturday... No Lennon, Defoe, King, Walker, Dawson, Parker included in the squad. Call up all the goon, chelsea, liverpool, united and city scum
