    Your 23 on the plane to S.A?

    So, that's it then. A few pretty dull and very nervy friendlies are over. Some have cemented their place on the flight. Others have earned themselves a month infront of the T.V. with the rest of us. Fabio names his final 23 on Tuesday. But who would be your squad of 23 lions to go for world...

  8. Who's Going Home In An FA Sponsored Aston?

    England Flatter To Deceive

    NOTHING FOR ENGLAND TO SHOUT ABOUT Forget about the result, this was not a good night for England. Fabio Capello has much to ponder before he makes his final squad selection for the World Cup. A 3-1 victory over a side of Mexico’s quality is a fine result on paper, but the performance that went...

    TV for tonight

    Guys and girls, Just wanted to point out something on the TV tonight that will get you that little bit more excited about the World Cup. After the England hopefuls, including the likes of Hart, Johnson, Huddlestone et all take on Mexico, on Channel 5 they will be showing Mike Bassett:England...
  12. The 30 Man Provisional Squad

    The usual inclusions, with the "surprises" of Bent, Dawson, A. Johnson, Huddlestone and... Jamie Carragher? Please God no, Carragher has been more than a few yards off the pace for a few years now and I couldn't bear the thought of watching him against the better wingers in the tournament. GK...

    Magical Modric

    Spread the word, Luka Modric has arrived. After six months of being kicked off the ball, stamped into the mud and having his pocket money stolen by the bigger boys, the little Croatian wizard has finally put in a performance worthy of his reputation. He tore Stoke City apart at White Hart Lane...

    Redknapp's "Mish Mash" Players

    Michael Dawson summed it up best in the post-match interview. Most players, having secured a place at Wembley would bound onto the screen with a broad grin, congratulate, "the lads," and then scamper off for a late night on the bubbles. Not this time. Instead Dawson hung his head in shame. How...

    You Lucky *******s

    Only Tottenham could make such a simple task so ludicrously difficult. Only Tottenham could take an unloseable game and almost throw it away. Harry Redknapp has booked his place at Wembley for a second season running, but he won't kid himself that his team deserves it. Two late goals from Roman...

    Rafa's Poisonous Glow

    There is a frog in Central America, the strawberry poison dart frog, that is born bright red as a warning to predators of the poison that lurks in its blood stream. It is not the only creature whose colour signifies danger. Certain snakes, insects and the oft-spotted Rafa Benitez all share the...

    Woeful Reds Ravaged By Redknapp

    The Tottenham Hotspur revival continues. Not content with robbing Liverpool blind in the League ten days ago, Harry Redknapp's resurgent warriors battered them in the League Cup as well. This emphatic and fully deserved 4-2 victory means that the North London side have racked up an astonishing...

    Harry On Up The Table

    What a turnaround! Tottenham Hotspur, who accumulated just two points in over two months with Juande Ramos, have now racked up seven in the last seven days and you can put them all down to the Harry Redknapp factor. The former Portsmouth boss has put a spring in Spurs' step and after two...

    Arsenal Lose, Four-All

    Arsene Wenger stared down his inquisitor, apparently caught between contempt and fury. A 4-4 draw at home to Tottenham, under any circumstances, is a poor result, but to be asked where he thought he, "lost the game," seemed to be pushing it a little. "We did not lose," he said slowly. "I must...
