Paul Merson claims Harry Redknapp would have led Arsenal to the title

This was Merson's greatest personal football achievement, and credits Redknapp's ability as a manager entirely.
The World Cup victor is again available for selection but Arsenal legend Merson believes Arsene Wenger should take the extreme action of excluding him from the starting line-up on Saturday.
"People say he's [Redknapp] a wheeler-dealer and it's so disrespectful", Merson said on Sky One's A League of Their Own. "We won our first game at home and I thought we'd be alright and then went to Crystal Palace".
Merson played under Wenger at Arsenal and was also under Redknapp's guidance at Portsmouth in 2002-03.
Fair enough. Redknapp has been a successful manager with an FA Cup win with Portsmouth and a Premier League Manager of the Year Award with Tottenham.

'Tactically, he's one of the best I've worked with.
These comments have provoked the obvious reaction from Arsenal fans, who have been hysterical in their criticism of their former player, although this is hardly the first time he has come out with an outrageous comment, or more been overly biased against Wenger's side.
After hearing what his former player had to say, Wenger didn't seem to take the comments with a pinch of salt, instead stating in his press conference that he isn't interested.
When asked to comment on the 49-year-old Sky Sports pundit making a return to the game Wenger snapped: "We speak about professional football here".
