In a post-match blast following a 2-0 reversal at Everton on Saturday, Redknapp questioned the 'talent' of those at his disposal.

He appreciates that many may feel that relegation will open the door to a summer switch, allowing them to remain in the Premier League, but he has made it painfully clear that there will be few takers for players who have shown a distinct lack of fight over the course of the 2012/13 campaign and are tied to big-money contracts at Loftus Road.

Redknapp said: "You say talented players, but I don't know. Are they that talented? I don't know, really.

"You have some experienced players, but you need a good group of characters and you have not got any problems when you have that.

"I hear all the time that, if they get relegated, they will want to go because they won't want to play in the Championship, but if they played better they would not be in the Championship, so that's a load of cobblers.

"They won't go. How are you going to get rid of them? That's your biggest problem. They all have contracts.

"I wish you were right, and you could say (the players would leave), but it ain't going to happen here.

"Who is going to pay them what they are earning here? It is going to be very hard to shift them."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
