Harry Would'veTaken England To Semi


O'Neil has told the news that Harry would have taken England a lot further.

Talking to the Portsmouth News O'Neil said 'Harry Redknapp would of done a better job. Harry is fantastic at knowing what he wants from his players. For instance he likes center-forwards who are strong and quick and get up the sides, so he plays strikers who do that.

'Thats where England have gone wrong - asking players to do things they're not great at doing.

'If you want to win a World Cup you've got to score goals. Even before Wayne Rooney was sent off we didnt look like scoring.

'We didnt take the right forwards. Wayne Rooney started the tournament unfit, Michael Owen was coming back from injury, Peter Crouch was unproven at World Cup level and Theo Walcot was unproven at any level.'

This is just pure speculation and Harry may like center-forwards who are strong and quick and get up the sides so who would he have taken? Defoe/Bent don't fit the bill so we would have taken 4 B grade strikers instead? Portsmouth are also not really in a position of strength to be able to start commenting on England's attacking woes. Any EPL manager could have done a better job but we all have the same opinions of SGE.

Harry certainly would have brought some passion and urgency to the England team

you would take bent and defoe everytime, who needs big strong centre forwards. pace is what unlocks defences these days, and is something england severly lacks with svens 'favourates'.

I would have left both Rooney and Owen at home myself. Surely even James Beattie-scummer is worth a look before Walcott. I hate the bloke but he's come on a lot at Everton.

Easy to say we know best with hindsight but like all these things its all about opinions. Yes my goldfish would have picked a better squad.

No matter which team plays for England we can't take penalties and that's another reason why we once again go out. Our record proves that time and time again. What hope for 2010, same old story probably.
