After ‘Arry Will it be Progression or Regression for Spurs?

You’d forgive Harry Redknapp for looking back over the last four months and thinking, ‘What just happened?’ Back in February, having just been cleared of tax fraud, establishing a 10 point cushion in third place and with Fabio Capello’s P45 tucked under his arm as he headed back to Italy, it seemed he’d be leading Spurs back into the Champions ...

Why Hodgson, Not Redknapp, Is The Right Choice For England

When it was announced that Roy Hodgson would be named by the FA as the England manager for the upcoming European Championships and the foreseeable future, the footballing world was, for some reason, united in outrage.

Roy Will Need Time

Its looking more and more likely that Roy Hodgson will be given the England job, and some of his doubters have to look at his record. Liverpool aside, Hodgson has done a good job everywhere he’s been and I’m still convinced that given more time at Anfield, he would have turned it around. Add to that his international experience with ... Read More »

Redknapp Not The Right Man For The Job

  Harry Redknapp may be a top club manager, but he does not have what it takes to be a successful coach at international level for England. This is not some knee-jerk reaction based on what happened at the Emirates on Sunday, it is something I have been thinking about since Harry’s name was immediately mentioned as the top man for the ...

What If Harry Says No To The England Job?

It would appear that the entire country wants Harry Redknapp to become the next England manager and rightly so. What if Harry turns down the job though? He has said on many occasions what a privilege it would be to manage his country (there used to be a similar joke about the Queen Mother) but a number of factors could ... Read More »

Harry For The Euros, Pearce For The Long Term

There is a new illness sweeping the nation at the moment: ‘Redknapp Fever’.

As the ensuing days played out, endorsement after endorsement ... Read More »

The Right ‘Right Back’ For England

With Euro 2012 looming, England’s right-back is still up for grabs with several worthy contenders stepping forwards to take the number 2 shirt. Since Gary Neville’s retirement many have feared there won’t be a reasonable replacement, but we now have many suitable replacements. Glen Johnson has been the main man at right back since Neville’s retirement, but Micah Richards and ... Read More »

Harry Aside, Who Else Could Be Next England Manager?

Since Fabio Capello’s acrimonious departure left perhaps the most high profile managerial position in world football vacant, it seems to have been quickly decided by the media and public that Harry Redknapp is the man to succeed the beleaguered Italian. The lovable cockney has emerged as first choice amidst the somewhat xenophobic cries that an Englishman must be appointed; that ... Read More »

Fabio’s Coup De Grace

Fabio Capello’s train has finally crashed. It fell off the tracks after the 2010 World Cup and would have burned at Euro 2012. However, the FA took control of the train and it crashed prematurely in London on Wednesday. Four months before the Euros in Ukraine and Poland, England is without a manager and a captain.

Matchday 25 – Premier League Predictions 11/02/12

Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool Welcome to the Theatre of Dreams where it is pantomime week. We are going to hear plenty of “Boooooo-Hissssss” and “He’s behind you!”. It’s a shame that the football is going to have to make do as the side-act. I think the game is going to get so much attention (for the wrong reasons) that neither ... Read More »

Flash Harry-Villain to Hero in the Space of Eight Hours

Harry Redknapp really is a man graced with impeccably good fortune. Paraphrasing classic London-based comedy Only Fools and Horses, if ‘Arry were to fall in a viper’s pit, he would come up wearing snakeskin shoes. Who else in football could have been dubiously acquitted of a mind-blowing costly court case of cheating the public in the morning, and by the afternoon be heir-apparent to ... Read More »
