Back to work today and the weather was bright and sunny with a glorious blue sky. 

Had a meeting with Paul Sullivan from Intergage - a web marketing agency. He was very interesting and came out with lots of ideas that will be useful to me and Ruggles & Jeffery.

Roy Hodgson, the former Fulham manager who took them to the final of the Europa League is being interviewed by the Football Association for the role of England Manager. It's a surprise as nearly every press report suggested that the Manager would be current Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp. Hodgson's current team West Bromwich Albion like Fulham under him are very well organised. Hodgson left Fulham to be Manager of Liverpool but was not so successful and was dismissed inside 6 months. A well organised side has brought success to the German national team for the past 40 years, so he just might be the right man for the job.

Tottenham have played some great football this season but their form has dropped off dramatically recently apart from yesterday. Harry Redknapp has gained a reputation as a "wheeler dealer" on the transfer market (a term he doesn't like), but both Southampton and Porstmouth who he managed in recent years went into administration after he left. Whether true or just my perception, Spurs seem to have a very large back-room staff and I wonder whether the FA could have afforded or were willing to take on Harry's team. For some reason, Stuart Pearce's position appears sacrosanct and I'm not sure that Harry would have wanted to have his number 2 forced on him.

Big match on TV as Manchester City beat Manchester United 1-0 to go level on points at the top of the Premier League but with a better goal difference. 2 games to play and the title is still up for grabs. It's been an exciting season at the top and bottom.
