Sure, I go away for a week on holiday and nothing happens! Well, not exactly. Mark Hughes and Roberto Di Matteo get sacked. English clubs sputter in Europe. Harry Redknapp and Rafael Benitez return to Premier League management. And West Bromwich Albion move to third in the table.
I should take a holiday more often!
Tonight’s main headline that I’ve picked out of the bunch is why Rafael Benitez will never be accepted by Chelsea fans, which is a good read from Dominic Fifield.
