England victorious under 'Arry

England victorious under 'Arry

Harry Redknapp was yesterday finally given the honour that he has craved - the chance to lead his country, which he did as an England side beat their counterparts from the Rest of the World in the charity event Soccer Aid, which was raising funds for unicef.

With the transfer window closed - so no business to be done - and most of our players away on international duty the Pompey manager was allowed to work with a collection of former football legends and stars of the world of entertainment for most of last week. At the end of it - last night - he had to oversee his troops at Wembley. Once again he managed to guide a team to success on the hallowed turf as England ran out victorious 4-3.

I do not know if anyone else watched the game, but it was entertaining with a range of stars on view - from footballs yesteryear and some surprisingly good footballers from other walks of life.

It was good to have Pompey represented on such a global event, but most importantly we must remember that this was all in the name of charity.

Smashing goal by some French actor I'd never heard of; clipped a delightful chip first time over David Seaman. Shearer showed how to take a penalty.

Figo showed the real class & without him England would have won it in the first half, but he is still playing in Italys top league was this right.

Done Deal - Free agent Davies arrives

No sooner had I mused the central defensive options wondering would Cookie bring in another have we announced a deal for former Accrington man Tom Davies!

No longer a midfield option

Barton played most of his football for Pompey in central defence. He came to Fratton as a central midfielder but those days are behind him, as far as Cookie is concerned.

On this day in history...1st July

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 1st July.

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.
