Manchester City certainly turned many eyes with an emphatic 5-1 destruction of Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane earlier today but Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes insists that life in the Champions League isn't about to get any easier for the Barclays Premier League leaders.

If there is one particular role within football that is analysed more than any other, it is that of the manager. So much of the culture of the modern game is wrapped up in the cult of the football manager that it would be easy to reach the conclusion that their value is over-stated, but when they get things right, they can set a club that may have been heading towards choppy waters towards, perhaps, a brighter future.

Last weekend snowy weather conditions played havoc with the Premier League fixture list, next week will probably be similar.

Never mind yesterday's match between Chelsea and Arsenal or any other match that any English club will play in this season. Quite possibly the most important match that English football or at least one part of it will be played out at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg this week as the Premier League and Sky Television go head to head with a Portsmouth landlady who feels that she shouldn't have to pay the cost that Sky want her to pay to show live football matches in her pub.

When it comes to football contracts, it's fairly simple: you sign it, your services belong to the team. That's the nature of a contract.

Of course when you'd like to take those services elsewhere, there's an equally simple solution: withhold your services.

"If it looks like a duck", it is said, "swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck". Except in this case, it was a turkey and, boy, did it gobble. The Premier Sports television deal with the Blue Square Premier carried an air of absurdity about it from the very start. Not only was the league prostrating itself at the altar of mammon, moving kick-off times left, right and centre (and frequently at very short notice), but the contract signed didn't guarantee the clubs of the league any money after "a nominal level of subscribers has been achieved".
