Leicester is a long way North and 'Arry might be hoping a team down South might yet come knocking. His unspoken dream of AVB being shown the door and an emergency "save us" call coming from Levy probably evaporated with Tottenham's stunning victory at Old Trafford yesterday, but QPR and Reading are both struggling and West Ham will find life more difficult next month. All three would suit Redknapp, and Brighton would be ideal in the Championship.
I would be surprised if Redknapp were to venture so far away from home at this time in his life - he turned down Newcastle after all - but if the rumours discomfort Pearson, then great. He deserves all he gets after walking out on Hull mid season, joining promotion rivals in the same division. If he is sacked, it will serve him right.
