Like the Harlem Globetrotters? — Premier League goes global debate continues

Harry Redknapp’s come out with a corker of a comment concerning the proposed international round, saying that Premier League sides are in danger of becoming something “like the Harlem Globetrotters.”

All I can now envisage is ‘Sweet Georgia Brown’ (that’s the tune you often hear in the background while they’re on television — you’ll know the one I mean…) being played while Christiano Ronaldo wows a crowd in Tokyo with his supreme skills — and afro hair-do.

Meanwhile, Roy Keane has surprisingly come out in favour of the proposal. That’s if he gets to play one of the big sides, that is…

Oh, hang on…

Redknapp cancelled a meeting at Portsmouth yesterday AND Mandaric is singing his praises in an interview I’ve just seen. Perhaps I was getting over-excited.

Shearer DOES want the Newcastle job

One of the fine advantages of having an irregular sleep pattern is that I can scout the news channels at night for possible news stories and bring them to people before others. I’m destined for the night-shifts, I think…

Anyway, according to Sky News and their sources, Alan Shearer now DOES want the Newcastle job, providing he is offered it.

In my opinion, how Shearer, even with his beloved Newcastle, could contemplate breaking his managerial virginity with the footballing equivalent of the managerial whore where the unwanted is tossed aside once the minimal amount of pleasure / usefulness is extracted or no longer wanted, scares me.

Or rather, will he attract the whore?

Will Shearer be another seduced (or vice versa)? I think so. The Week in Wagers post will be up in due course (I hope…), but on Betfair, he’s 8.8 back (8/1). If I could afford it, I’d do so right away. Interestingly, however, Harry Redknapp is a nailed on certainty according to BF – he’s at 1.36 back (4/11).
