Andros Townsend: Was on loan at QPR last season

The midfielder did spend time at Loftus Road last season, but was unable to prevent QPR from slipping out of the Premier League during a short-term loan spell.

Redknapp would welcome the opportunity to land the 22-year-old for a second time, but appreciates that Spurs would not let him go cheap.

With QPR now competing in the Championship, and having seen a number of big-money deals turn sour, they cannot afford to take financial risks.

Redknapp understands that and concedes that Townsend may be out of his reach.

He is quoted as saying by West London Sport: "I couldn't see us being able to buy him. I think Andros would be too expensive for us.

"Andros did great last season, but Tottenham don't want to sell him as far as I know."

Asked if it might be possible to put another loan agreement in place, Redknapp added: "I'd love to loan him, but whether they would do that I'm not sure."

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.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
