This Week

Harry Redknapp’s arrest shocked the footballing world. Redknapp reckons the police were absolutely wrong to arrest him, particularly in the manner they did.
He may have a point. Unfortunately Redknapp’s name has come up a couple of times in a bad light. The BBC’s panorama investigation into corruption alleged he had a role though he was later cleared of any wrongdoing.
For Redknapp’s name to come up now will not have done him any favours, which is a shame given the fine job he has been doing at Portsmouth and certain people, thefc100 included, believing he should get a shot at the England job.

Redknapp’s son reckons it’s a sting to get him out of the way of the England job.
o….k….not sure the police are that worried about him getting the job but anyhow….
Redknapp maintained his sense of humour though, referring to the police taking his wife’s new computer which she’d only managed to figure out how to turn on a few weeks previously. Nice.

Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea recorded victories in the Champions League.
Liverpool’s 4-1 defeat of FC Porto is a further boost to morale for the Merseyside club who seem to be slowly returning to the form of the start of the season. Benitez was supported loudly throughout by the fans and the American owners may have a job on their hands convincing the Anfield faithful he isn’t the man for the job.
Ronaldo scored a 20-yard free-kick in the closing moments of United’s game with Sporting Lisbon to make it two winners from two games. The Sporting fans lived up to their name by still applauding their former hero. United have breezed into top spot and Ferguson can now afford to rest players for the game against Roma before Utd’s weekend trip to Liverpool.
Chelsea thumped Rosenborg 4-0 with Drogba scoring twice and a 3-0 half-time scoreline proving the game was as good as gone for the Norwegians who had managed a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in Mourinho’s last game in charge. Chelsea have been impressive so far under Avram Grant and continue to rack up the goals to go with the victories. Fair play big man.

Paul Jewell took the Wigan job. Why Paul? Seriously, why? Derby must have promised him transfer funds but to be fair the chances of the Rams staying up have to be slim to none. The squad that Jewell scraped past relegation with Wigan last year had the likes of Heskey, Camara, De Zeuw and Landzaat. Derby have Earnshaw. And he generally makes the bench.

Alex McLeish took the Birmingham job. Strange one given that prospective owner Carson Yeung wouldn’t guarantee Steve Bruce a job but he’s willing to give McLeish a crack at the Premiership after taking over Scotland’s campaign midway through the season?? I suppose it does free up the Scotland job for Billy Davies, are there any Scots left who haven’t had a shot at the job? Graeme Souness wants it as well but Souness has wanted every job available in recent months including the Ireland job which he seems to have given up on despite the FAI having yet to find a successor….
