All the while, Spanish chairmen and managers alike drop Alka-Selza’s into a glass of water and nurse their sore heads as they recover from Harry Redknapp’s transfer policy. David Moyes on the other hand has been left waiting for Rio Ferdinand to burst through the doors with the words “You’ve been merked!” after Redknapp’s derisory £250k offer for Phil Neville.
