Last night already showed us the angry scouser in action and what his new moves are but everyone’s forgetting that the Premier League’s real wheeler-dealer didn’t get nothing on transfer deadline day. Whether this means that Harry Redknapp will send out a team of ex-cons and cannibals is unclear, but Blackburn might not be the best place to do it.
Spurs need to win to keep pace with the top four by winning at Blackburn tonight, but their opponents have also been busy in the transfer window so it might not be that straightforward.
Elsewhere, Blackpool’s directors tried out the trusty “turn your phone off” trick on deadline day and it worked a treat as they managed to keep hold of prized asset Charlie Adam. What they hadn’t thought of is that he’s Scottish and can get rather angry. It might backfire, but even if it does they’re only playing West Ham who have their own signing Robbie Keane available for selection – already claiming that he was born within earshot of Bow Bells.
Third placed Manchester City face a trip to basement dwelling Birmingham City looking to close the gap between themselves and leaders Man Utd to six points. They will probably do so without captain Carlos Tevez who’s likely to still be sidelined, and this might contribute to the game itself being a very boring 0-0 draw.
Most of the spotlight will be on Luis Suarez, making his debut as Liverpool’s new number seven. Here’s to hoping he does something…anything to make this game against Stoke all the more interesting.
