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."

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.

hat a wonderful compliment - that Wenger has been able to raise more funds for players running a football club than Jose's patron has in running the economy of a small country. I guess it shows there are different kinds of success.
