Given that all clubs considered have great squads, you might say that the log does not lie. So who might manage our Team of Teams? My vote goes to Harry Redknapp for the great job he is doing at Spurs.
King Kenny, who perhaps does not have quite the same talent available to him, has also done great things for Liverpool. Wenger has not had a blinder but, sadly, I rate AVB down, as he has shown himself to be tactically naive during the first half this season.
- Rednapp (Spurs)
- Dalgiesh (Liverpool)
- Mancini (City)
- Ferguson (United)
- Wenger (Arsenal)
- Villas-Boas (Chelsea)
So, in my Team of Teams, City has three representatives as have Chelsea, Spurs have two, United and Arsenal one each. A team that has Hart, Ivanović, Kompany, Terry, Cole, Parker, Gerrard, Silva, Nani, Van Persie and Bale would be hard to beat and great to watch.
Of course, Jose may have selected a different XI, so might you. But if there is a serious side to this bit of fun, it might be this: Which of the current Blues squad, not selected above, are in the same class? And importantly, where do we need to play catch up in the summer?
And if Jose is to leave Madrid in the summer, can Chelsea afford not to bring him ''home?''
