Why Spurs Stevenage Draw Confirms Harry Redknapp Is Perfect For England

Dirty Harry

Let's look at the clues.

At times, plays some great football. Has the odd stand-out result, and bangs a few goals in. But struggles against the really top teams, and can find it difficult against opposition that they should really eat for breakfast.

England under Capello ? (losing to Brazil, France, Germany and Spain (once), but trouncing Croatia and stuffing the likes of Bulgaria and Slovakia. Then going to the World Cup in South Africa and drawing 0 - 0 with lowly Algeria when it mattered).

No, Spurs under Harry Redknapp this season. Losing to Manchester City (twice), and Manchester United (once so far), thrashing Liverpool 4-0 and Newcastle 5-0 the other week. And then strong favourites to thump Stevenage in the FA Cup Sunday, and coming away with a 0 - 0 draw.

Harry for England ? You bet - certainly our best option. But it'll be business as usual before you know it. The writing is already on the wall!
