To other news stories, first off, Redknapp had his heart scare? Poor Harry, I'd pray for him but now, this is heavy stuff about the tax court.
The indictment reads: "Mandaric and Redknapp, between 1 April 2002 and 28 November 2007, with intent to defraud and to the prejudice of HM Revenue and Customs, arranged for $145,000, paid by Mandaric as a result of or in connection with Redknapp's employment and as a reward for services, to be transferred to a Monaco bank account opened by Redknapp for that purpose, in order to conceal the said emolument from HM Revenue and Customs and evade the payment of income tax and national insurance contributions thereon (whether by the operation of PAYE by the club or otherwise)."This sounds really serious... you've got to think maybe Redknapp's heart problems might be related to this.

I know a lot of people would disagree but I like Allardyce, I think he could coach England, more heart problems, so then? After Fabio leaves, who might come in??
And back to the 3 Lions, this team today did well enough and as stories say, Spain did have the better attack, all of their big guns were out there, Villa, Fabregas, Mata, everyone. The problem is if Lamps is made permanent Captain and the rest of this team were to stay as is, you'd have those saying "well, where's Rooney?, where's Gerrard?" and on and on. It does present a problem and if they failed, they'd blame it on Capello.
England play again Tuesday versus Sweden, a team who historically, they have a number of draws with. It would not surprise me to see a John Terry Captained England team again, draw Sweden. However, if England can score, obviously, Hart in goal has to be about as good as any goalkeeper in the world today. He made some splendid saves.
