With Harry Redknapp leading the shortlist of replacements for Fabio Capello as manager for the England national team, it might be time for Tottenham fans to envision a future without him.
One of the most capable managers in football, Redknapp has kept the Spurs in league contention year after year.

Since his hiring in 2008, Redknapp has guided the Spurs from the regulation zone to a Champions League berth in 2009. While he has yet to win major silverware with Tottenham, the Lilywhites have always been in the conversation with Redknapp at the helm.
