Peter Odemwingie: QPR manager Harry Redknapp regrets not signing West Brom strik

Redknapp's move to sign the West Brom striker fell through as the transfer window slammed shut, the Nigerian famously turning up at Loftus Road only to be refused entry after the clubs were unable to agree a deal.

However, Redknapp, whose side are 10 points adrift of safety with only four matches remaining, believes the additional firepower of Odemwingie could have made all the difference.

"I would not have changed an awful lot, really," he said. "I'd have probably tried harder to get the boy from West Brom, Odemwingie.

"He might have really given us something up there with Bobby Zamora not being 100 per cent fit. He might have scored four or five goals that make the difference.

"He did no different to what about 50 other footballers did on the same day. He made one big mistake. He was too honest, he turned up at the football club, he was silly."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
