Harry 'The Bung' Sacking Saved Our Summer?
Harry Redknapp is back in football ... on BBC's Match of the Day programme ... but his sacking from Spurs probably saved Newcastle from losing Demba Ba!
Redknapp had a trial spell on the sofa during Euro 2012, and will Alan Shearer and co on the sofa for the weekend highlights show.
Redknapp was the man who told the world of Demba Ba's contract clause, and the then-Spurs boss said he hoped to take Ba to White Hart Lane this summer.
What a shame the Spurs board decided the former West Ham boss was getting a little too big for his own boots.
Redknapp expected England to come calling - they didn't - and suddenly his world fell apart.
Now he has to suffer "Mr Happy" Mark Lawrenson and "Mr Grumpy" Alan Hanson on MOTD.
