It's definitely been an eventful season for Mr. Redknapp.
His side were big favourites for Champions League football, then he avoided jail time after being acquitted of fraud (via Sky News).
After the resignation of Fabio Capello, he was the overwhelming favourite for the England job only to be completely snubbed by the FA.
And to top it all off, Spurs are back in the Europa League after an extremely disappointing end to the season that saw them overtaken by archrivals Arsenal.
A potential year that promised so much has resulted in the same situation he was in last season—fighting off potential suitors for Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, while trying to improve a squad without the guarantee of Champions League football.
That might prove a difficult task this time around, and if the Englishman does indeed lose one or both of his big names, it's safe to say he won't be at White Hart Lane for too much longer.
Redknapp would definitely be the people's choice, and an approach to Daniel Levy would have been very interesting. There was even a rumour (via the London Evening Standard) last week that Liverpool were indeed interested in Redknapp.
You can't argue with his track record, and one thing is for sure—he has a talismanic gift when it comes to winning trophies and overachieving.
Just ask Southampton, Portsmouth and, of course, Spurs. Liverpool could have missed a trick by not going all-out for Harry.
Good luck, Mr. Rodgers.
