‘Harry Redknapp for Newcastle’ is the headline for a number of media this morning.

The story going that Mike Ashley wants to bring him to St. James’ Park in the summer as Alan Pardew’s permanent replacement.

Ashley had supposedly tried to bring Redknapp to Newcastle early on in his ownership at the club but ‘Arry decided against it.

Walking out on Rangers, Harry Redknapp said;

“Sadly I need immediate surgery on my knee, which is going to stop me from doing my job in the coming weeks.

“It means that I won’t be able to be out on the training pitch every day and if I can’t give 100% I feel it is better for somebody else to take over the reins.”

The fact that Rangers are relegation favourites and Harry Redknapp wasn’t given a penny to spend in January will surely not have played any part in our old mate’s decision…

The idea of Mike Ashley and Harry Redknapp working together takes some believing.

An owner who doesn’t want to spend a penny on transfers he doesn’t need to and a manager who insists on spending as much as possible, including Portsmouth who he helped to ruin and QPR who aren’t far off going the same way.

The idea as well of ‘Arry being happy not to have any say on players going in or out is also laughable, nor forgetting he will be 68 years old in the summer and gets a nosebleed if he comes north of Watford.

If these ‘small’ matters can be ironed out then I think there is every chance of Harry Redknapp coming to St. James’ Park…

    It makes me wonder where these stories start…so I immediately go to the ‘Newsnow’ site and type the words ‘Harry Redknapp’…. and voila ….stick in a filter for the date…and you see it started with…..Rebecca Knight…. a Journalist, she finishes her article with….

    …’Newcastle fans. Would you touch Redknapp with a barge pole? Let us know your thoughts below, become a guest blogger or tweet us @LaFootyettes.’

    Then other sites take up the claptrap….like this one here!
