I don't give a lot of credence to this, but the Sunday People reported yesterday that Harry Redknapp may step aside at QPR and Chris Powell would be on a short list to replace him. First, QPR may still get promoted in which case Redknapp would probably stay. Second, being on the short list is not the same as getting the job. What I do think is that if Chris Powell was let go at Charlton, he would soon get a managerial job elsewhere.
Of course, following yesterday's defeat there are those who would like to get rid of him. But it is the players who are on the pitch not the manager.
