This week has seen another professional footballer hitting the headlines following some drunken escapades on a night out.

This time the player in question is Ledley King, who plays for Tottenham Hotspur but in the recent past we have seen similar stuff from players on the books of various clubs.

Of course, it often seems to be players of London clubs making most of the news but then again most of the paparazzi frequent the capital’s hotspots so I guess that shouldn’t be much of a surprise.

Portsmouth Football Club lost their manager, Harry Redknapp over the weekend when he was lured away to another job.  This obviously caused a bit of a headache for Portsmouth’s Chief Executive, Peter Storrie, who was tasked with finding a replacement manager.

Of course, it’s not easy to decide on the right man - and to find one that is available etc, so Mr Storrie was taking a sensible view on things.  This is what he had to say on Sunday :

We won’t rush into appointing a new manager.     Peter Storrie, Portsmouth FC Chief Executive
