Yeah - he's chief cheerleader and marketing opportunity. Any resemblance to a top-rate footballer is purely coincidental.

Well, there's still time for West Ham not to get promoted, which will restore the balance of justice.

(We had pie and mash on Monday watching them beat poor unfortunate Leicester on TV. The pie wasn't very humble, but neither were the West Ham fans)

I have this dream that for the second time in three years unfancied Blackpool will beat the smart-alecks to a place in the Premiership.

So, I'm sure, do Blackpool. And they will do all they can to make it happen. So perhaps they will want to keep their powder dry for the last game of the regular season, conserving their energies, avoiding injuries, taking few risks, not getting any cards, playing cautiously, not worrying too much if they fall behind a little - and so give Millwall the chance for a sixth win in a row [Snigger]

I hadn't realised The Lions had done so well recently! Blackpool always get a warm welcome at The Den; warmer than that which other seaside teams get anyway.

Elsewhere, don't let me hear any of those Premiership managers complain about fixture congestion.

I once watched a team I hate play in the semi-final of the European Cup. They were playing away and went 2-0 down to a quality team. Their captain got booked, and would miss the final. So did one of their midfielders. That was 1999.

The last time a team played in their own stadium for the final of the European Cup, they played a team from England. And lost.

I can't stand Munich either. When I lived in Dachau I got to see plenty wools. I daresay they don't know who Bayern will play this weekend.

While Madrid have Alonso and Arbeloa, they also have Ronaldo and the fascist-liking manager.

Maybe I'll miss the final.

Roy's a senior manager, but then Jeremy Irons is a senior actor so it doesn't mean he's any good. National championships in Sweden, UEFA runners-up twice and getting Switzerland to the World Cur finals is about it. That isn't a world-class manager's record (and 'urry up 'Arry's isn't either).

That said, I doubt the FA want a world class manager. They thought they were getting that with Sven and Fabio, but the latter was exclusively a club manager. They will feel that Hodgson is 'sound'. He won't rock the boat but it won't go forward at a great pace either.

Why? Because you don't think he's up to the job? He has a good track record, including in European competitions.
Or is it because, like me, you think he's a decent guy, a good manager, royally dumped on by the Liverpool owners, and would now like to see him carry on with the decent job he's doing at West Brom?
Mind you, if you rule out 'Arry, (and it seems that 'Arry has ruled himself out) - who else is there, given that the PTB have decreed it must be an Englishman?

Roy Hodgson's a decent guy and a decent manager with a good record. But that is all. He has had two high-profile jobs, Inter and Liverpool, and hasn't set the world alight with either. His successes have either been relative success or as a big fish in a small pool, although he's hardly unusual in that.

If Hodgson was to have had the job it should have been after Sven.

eta: if it must be an Englishman we're stuffed. How many top-notch English managers are there? The Premiership has more from Glasgow alone than from the whole of England!

Yeah, the country's hamstrung itself in a fit of jingoism. I think Roy is probably the best Englishman available, but I'm sure we could have tempted someone else if the FA had thought that the Sun would have it.

On the other hand, Roy does have a track record of helping mediocre teams avoid relegation, so given England's propensity to be rubbish, perhaps he is ideally suited to the job.

He was utterly shite at clubs where something was expected of him. The media have tolerated his rantings in the media, but that'll change. He start spouting all manner of inane and contradictary ramblings when at ours, and he'll be under much more pressure now.

Still, he did well as some Swedish side no-one's heard of about 25 years ago, so who am I to question his talent?

Actually, I should clarify. It makes a good case for Hodgson if the only choice is him or Rednapp. It rather avoids the question of who else might have been good if the FA had dared to against the Sun's wishes.

I don't know about how things sound with this season's results (what with that terrible result of ours a few weeks ago), but there's a statistic that Kenny Dalglish has won more trophies as manager in England than Roy Hodgson has won away games as manager in England.

One thing's certain, his man-management skills will mean that Joe Cole will never play for the saes again.

It makes you wonder why anyone could ever be considered. Why did the FA wait so long? Did they keep quiet until the Baggies were destined for a safe mid-table finish?

I reckon his mum wrote it.

Looks like Alabama is going to have a good year in the newly re-aligned SEC West. Texas A&M won't provide much of a challenge this year, and probably next. I have heard that Auburn is going to make a move for another championship this year, so that will be interesting to watch. In the SEC East, the dog's breakfast from the past three or four years continues. Tennessee is supposedly looking good (first time in five or six years), so maybe they'll give Florida and South Carolina a run for the money. Vandy and Kentucky will suck as always, and Georgia will come out strong and fizzle halfway through the season.

I predict Bama vs. Texas or perhaps Oklahoma for the national championship, with LSU and Auburn playing strong and perhaps going all the way.

Beat them for us please. We want a chance against them next year.

And meanwhile over in the posh seats, if Manchester City beat QPR (very likely) and Bolton beat Stoke (less likely) then QPR can join West Ham and be forced to play us oiks in the South London Local Derby League. Four away games within a local bus ride!

Anyone else have the idea that Joey Barton, a former Man City player, was trying to help his old club? I thought Balotelli was a headcase but Barton has additional ingredients. If a fan did what he does, he'd be banned from every ground in the Premiership and the Football League.

I noticed the usual gracelessness from SAF, remarking on the opposition having ten men and scoring in added time, like the Mancs have never benefitted from those!

That's all by-play though: the truly important news is that Everton finished ahead of those flash newcomers from the other side of Stanley Park, to whom I sincerely send my best wished for the Cup Final. Really. Yes. ABC (Anyone but Chelsea).

Chelsea bites! Spurs have light-years more potential than those who did worse: if that bullying Italian thug had gotten a red card in a timely manner whose absence yielded two undeserved free kicks for Roobey, Man City might not be where they are today.

So, (not unexpectedly), Dalglish has gone and, true to form, Liverpool fans desperately cling to the past by hoping Benitez will be named as his successor. Personally, I'd take Martinez over the Spanish Waiter any day of the week. [Razz]

So, (not unexpectedly), Dalglish has gone and, true to form, Liverpool fans desperately cling to the past by hoping Benitez will be named as his successor.

Don't know about 'hope'. More, 'Who would be mad enough to accept a role that requires you to put Liverpool back in the Champions League when all the money's been spent on underperforming flops, which gave Houllier a heart attack, Benítez kidney stones, and Hodgson and Dalglish some fairly rapid P45s, and at a club where all the senior backroom staff have been sacked or resigned?'

Who will win the Champions League? Who cares. I'm already rooting for Atlético Madrid for the UEFA Super Cup. Anything but Chelski.

On more pressing matters. This is the second time in succession that Huddersfield Town have made it to the League 1 Play-off Final, and the third time in three years in the play offs. I'm hoping it's third time lucky and Championship football next season.

Alfred Sachs is getting on and he's not very well. Yes, I suppose that puts him in contention.

Indeed! Keep the Tangerine Dream alive! And make West Ham's bid for the Olympic Stadium look utterly hollow. If anybody's interested it ought to become a national athletics stadium, as Crystal Palace is a dump, worse than the old Wembley Stadium in its latter years.
