Since Fabio Capello resigned in February, England have been searching for a new manager. It was widely assumed by pretty much everybody that Harry Redknapp was a lock for the job, but today, West Brom manager Roy Hodgson was announced as the England manager, officially taking over after the Premier League season finishes on May 13th. I think that, for once, the FA have got this decision absolutely right, and the Hodgson is a far better option for England than Harry Redknapp would have been.

After a poor start to the season, losses to both Manchester teams in the first two games, Tottenham were able to get their season back on track, and up until the end of February it looked like a very promising season for Tottenham, despite elimination from the Europa league. After thumping Newcastle 5-0 at home, it has been very much downhill from there. At the Christmas stage of the season most people had predicted that Tottenham had that third premier league place nailed on and would surely remain in the top four come the end of the season. But how does a team go from looking certain to achieving a third place finish and a genuine chance at an F.A. Cup final to finishing the season with only a Europa League place. Winning the F.A. Cup along with a champions league finish would be an ideal season for Redknapp and Tottenham and would be the perfect reward for all of Redknapp’s hard work since arriving at White Hart Lane. Here is a look at some of the things that has hindered Tottenham’s performance of late.
