At that level, it's about knitting them into a solid group and making them go out and play in a certain system. Harry would do a great job at that.'We qualified in spectacular style for the World Cup but it was a disaster. I kept saying on television, 'there's something drastically wrong in the dressing room because we're not seeing the players we see in the Premier League'.'John Terry tried to get a message out, get something out into the open, to clear the air and move forward. His motives were right: he could see big problems, that something was going to come crashing down.'Capello should know the players and what they want.

It was a great experience, dealing with problems every day, the adrenalin rush again.[LNB]'I'd never see myself going back there with the current people there. Newcastle was very frustrating. I had a long-term plan. That's what it needed and still needs.[LNB]'If the right job comes along I?ll do it but there are a million people looking for the right one. I wouldn't be too arrogant to say I wouldn?t go down to a lower league.'[LNB] Tottenham must focus on Fulham first - not Inter Milan - warns manager Harry Redknapp Fabio Capello: Language student who isn't getting a message across to his England playersTOTTENHAM FC
