Back in 2011, we published an article amidst claims that David Moyes was being lined up to replace Harry Redknapp and at the time, it provoked a record number of comments. Now, two and a half years later, the Scot is out of a job for the first time in 16 years and news of his departure has had a predictable effect on the next Spurs manager betting.
Moyes has now shortened to 5/1 in some places while he is on offer at a best of 12/1 with Stan James. His sacking at Manchester United has seen Louis van Gaal widely touted as a successor but in the meantime, LVG remains favourite in our market at 3/1 with Paddy Power.
In September 2011, David Moyes was seen as a sound appointment for any Premier League side but now, he is dubbed a failure. Could he do a job at Spurs or would his arrival at White Hart Lane be another backward step?
