The Mirror Run Another Story About Harry, (and David Gold's very immodest website)

which has appeared nowhere else and which appears to be totally daft. Harry and Newcastle I can just about understand - but Birmingham?

Redknapp snubs City

Harry Redknapp Harry Redknapp

Birmingham have failed in bids to bring in Harry Redknapp and Paul Jewell as their new boss - as they scramble around for Steve Bruce's successor.

The battered Blues short-listed Portsmouth chief Redknapp and out-of-work but in-demand Jewell as replacements for Wigan-bound Bruce.

However, Redknapp is content with the fabulous rebuilding job he is doing at Pompey, while Jewell is waiting for the right offer to return to management.

Now Birmingham, who are using agents to make discreet approaches, aim to bring in someone fast - with Eric Black in temporary charge but also heading for Wigan shortly.

Black, in charge for Saturday's home clash with Portsmouth, could have stayed at St Andrews but has opted to join Bruce's JJB Stadium coaching team.

Bruce will be unveiled tomorrow after quitting Birmingham yesterday, with coach Keith Bertschin joining him and Black not too far behind.

David Gold, Birmingham's co-chairman has his own website and I'm still not sure that if it's a wind-up or not. He comes across like some character out of an Eighties soap opera.
