By monitoring social marketing sites this week it’s been fascinating to see just how much effect they can have on what can later become press stories. Does the fact that the Harry rumour that started on Tuesday before being initially denied by Redknapp and then confirmed by the club suggest that we should pay attention to all of them?
Early yesterday, when Fabio Capello’s name was mentioned his odds for the post dropped from 14/1 to 6/1 but he still seems a remote possibility as a true candidate. Later on in the day however, stories linking Andre Villas-Boas to the club started to gather real momentum.
This morning, those stories have led to suggestions that Daniel Levy has already interviewed the former Chelsea boss about a return to the Premiership.
The Portuguese has been out of the game since leaving Stamford Bridge but only this month there were claims that he was lining up an agreement to take over at Sao Paulo. Could he be tempted back to the Premier League and are Spurs as keen on him as some suggest?
At present, AVB is the new, 15/8 favourite to take over.
