Roy Hodgson Favourite For England Managerial Role - Remember Football's Support For Harry Redknapp?

Roy Hodgson is now on the cusp of nabbing the England managerial role, but what about manager-elect Harry Redknapp?

This morning, Redknapp has been ludicrously compared to Brian Clough as the darling of the media's coronation has been scuppered.

For Hodgson, he will walk into the job knowing he is not the popular choice amongst players past and present, who championed Redknapp for the role ahead of him.

And why's that? Because they said it on Twitter, of course...

And with the final word, FA board member, Phil Gartside:

"He's had success at every club he has been at and he sets teams up to win."

What about when he took Southampton down in 2005?
