The Cross Word: Field’s assembled in race for Fratton hot seat
Hayling Islander - almost 2 years
The Pompey fans haves spoken on who they want to be the club’s next manager and the board meet today to narrow the field. Here’s my take on the runners and riders in the Fratton Hot Seat Stakes.... Phil Brown Success in League Two? Check. Knowledge of the level? Check. Personality to handle a big club? Check. Ticks all of the boxes and has talked up his appreciation of Pompey’s fans plenty of times before. Has this week indicated he is preparing to sign a new contract at Southend but could that be an effort to gauge how strong Pompey’s interest is? Paul Cook Has found himself towards the head of the betting as the bookies start to get a grip on the managerial race. Cook has produced at Chesterfield, getting them promoted and into League One play-offs and is believed to have favour on the Pompey board. But would be an underwhelming appointment for fans and a managerial CV which also includes Southport, Sligo Rovers and Accrington Stanley doesn’t tell us if he could handle li ...

Holloway is top choice for Pompey job
Hayling Islander - almost 2 years
THE Pompey public have had their say on who they would like to see elected – and it’s a landslide victory. If the battle to become the next Blues boss went to the polls, Ian Holloway would be the runaway winner to be handed the top job at Fratton Park. After voting finished, more than 1,500 responses came in on our News web poll at portsmouth.co.uk to guage fans’ thoughts on who the club should appoint to replace Andy Awford. As you might expect, the views were wide and varied. But the statistical data suggested there was a clear trend, with the former Millwall, Crystal Palace and Blackpool boss claiming more than a quarter of the voting share. With 27-per-cent share of the total vote, Holloway was clear favourite. The 52-year-old is renowned as a colourful character and many clearly believe he is the right sort of fit for Pompey. But he also has vast managerial experience with seven jobs behind him and has either played or managed throughout the English divisions during his lon ...

T ‘n’ T stir memories of great goal pairings
Hayling Islander - almost 2 years
They are playing in the shadows of goalscoring heroes. But Pompey’s strike partnership is now beginning to step into the limelight in their own right with their explosive finishing form. Fratton folklore echoes with tales of the exploits of Paul Walsh and Guy Whittingham, Alan Biley and Mark Hateley and Colin Garwood partnering Jeff Hemmerman in attack, to name a few. Then came the link-ups between the likes of Svetoslav Todorov, Yakubu, Lomana Lualua and Teddy Sheringham in recent years. Now a duo for the new era has formed in Ryan Taylor and Matt Tubbs. The pair made it 12 goals from the last 10 games between them with a finish apiece against Cheltenham on Tuesday night. Taylor has six in the last seven to his name, while Tubbs took his total to six in 10 against the Robins. Behind them, Danny Hollands is watching the strike force flourish. Hollands said: ‘They are both doing fantastically. ‘They are there to score goals, even if you can’t rely just on them. ‘They are doing ...

David Warner: how a weird Walkabout bar spat stumped Australia
Guardian (UK) - over 3 years
Punch at English rising star Joe Root in Birmingham bar piles pressure on failing tourists and adds tinder to Ashes series They are in a dire run of form, their media have turned on them, their former players have been openly critical and now one of Australia's star batsmen has been dropped after launching an unprovoked attack against an England cricketer in the early hours of Sunday morning in a Birmingham theme pub. David Warner, one of several Australian cricketers under pressure before the Champions Trophy one-day tournament and back-to-back Ashes series, threw a punch at the English rising star Joe Root and struck him with what was described as a "glancing blow" following a late-night altercation over a fancy dress wig. The green and gold wig can now be filed alongside posters for a "Mad Midget Weekend" in Queenstown (Mike Tindall, Rugby World Cup 2011), a pedalo in the Caribbean (Andrew Flintoff, Cricket World Cup 2007) and a dentist's chair from a Hong Kong bar (Teddy Sherin ...

Fergie warns Rooney about his weight
IOL - over 4 years
Wayne Rooney has been warned he faces a career-long battle with his weight because of his genes. ||| London – Wayne Rooney has been warned he faces a career-long battle with his weight as he fights for a future at Manchester United alongside Robin van Persie. Sir Alex Ferguson, who has always paid close attention to family history when assessing the long-term physical condition of players, is putting the frighteners on 26-year-old Rooney in an attempt to get him focused on forming an attacking dream partnership with United’s new £24 million Dutchman. The United manager, in charge of a milestone 1,000th league game for United at Southampton today, believes his two superstar strikers can work together, but he is aware it depends on Rooney working extra hard on maintaining his perfect fighting weight. Rooney is out for four weeks with a badly gashed leg, but there were concerns before the injury about his overall level of fitness, with England manager Roy Hodgson disappo ...

Football: ‘Persie can help United win title’
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
Former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie could score the goals that Manchester United needs to win back the Premier League, according to former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp. Arsenal agreed to sell van Persie, their 29-year- old striker, to United in a £24m deal and Redknapp told BBC Sport that Persie would be a great acquisition for them. “If he performs like he did last year then him and Wayne Rooney will just be an incredible partnership,” said Redknapp. “He’s a special player and he’s a fantastic signing for Manchester United. I see them winning the league, now that they’ve signed Persie.” Van Persie scored 44 goals in 57 games for club and country last season, including two against United. He also won both the players’ and football writers’ player of the year awards and was entering the final season of his contract at Emirates Stadium and stated earlier this summer that he did not want a renewal. He joined Arsenal as a 20-year-old in 200 ...

More big stars have been named to play at Soccer Aid 2012 for UNICEF. Robbie Williams will be joined by his Take That band mate Mark Owen on 27 May as they attempt to reclaim the Soccer Aid title from the Rest of the World. But they’ll be up against midfield general Roy Keane who adds to an already impressive line up that includes Edwin van der Sar, Jaap Stam and Ruud van Nistelrooy. With four Champions League and 15 Premier League winners medals between them it’s a squad with serious experience. Meanwhile, England will be hoping that Harry Potter star Jason Isaacs can bring a bit of magic to the park and that comedians Paddy McGuiness and John Bishop don’t bring a smile to the faces of the Rest of the World’s fans. After his grueling 295 mile triathlon for Sport Relief John Bishop certainly won’t be short of fitness and Jason Isaacs has already made his intentions clear: “It’s such a privilege to be asked to help UNICEF in any way.

    More Details Hide Details
  • 2003
    Age 36
    Despite this, he was only contracted to the club for one season and, despite scoring in his final game (a 5–1 win victory over Middlesbrough with the club already secure in the top flight), at the end of the 2003–04 season, Portsmouth decided not to offer the 38-year-old striker another contract but he insisted that he wanted to continue his top flight career at another club.
    More Details Hide Details Sheringham made 38 appearances for Portsmouth, scoring ten goals. Sheringham then dropped down a division to West Ham United in the Football League Championship, and was the division's third-highest goalscorer with 20 goals (21 in all competitions) – one of the highest scoring seasons of his career.
  • 2002
    Age 35
    He was selected as part of Eriksson's 2002 FIFA World Cup squad after impressing throughout the 01–02 season with his club, and played in the famous 1–0 win against Argentina, almost scoring a goal with a volley that was well saved by the Argentine goalkeeper, and made his final England appearance as a substitute in the 2–1 quarter-final defeat to Brazil in Japan.
    More Details Hide Details His twelve appearances for Eriksson were all as a substitute. At the age of 36, that defeat signalled the final end of Sheringham's international career, during which he had earned fifty-one caps and scored eleven times for England.
    On the expiry of his Tottenham contract at the end of the 2002–03 season, Tottenham decided not to offer Sheringham a new contract and he joined Portsmouth in their first season in the Premier League.
    More Details Hide Details Sheringham became the oldest Premiership player to score a hat-trick when he scored three against Bolton early in the season.
    In his first season back, Sheringham helped Tottenham to a ninth-place finish, the club's highest in 6 years, and to reach the League Cup final where they lost 2–1 to Blackburn Rovers, with Sheringham being brought down in the penalty area in the last minute for what he believed to be a penalty. 2002–03 brought a similar mid table finish, although Tottenham had topped the Premiership three games into the season.
    More Details Hide Details Sheringham made 80 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham in this period, scoring 26 goals. Sheringham and Clive Allen were inducted into the Tottenham Hotspur Hall of Fame on 8 May 2008.
    His fine form ensured that he was still involved with the national side despite being in his 35th year, being named in the squad for the 2002 World Cup.
    More Details Hide Details At the end of the 2000–01 season, Sheringham's four-year contract at Old Trafford expired. He was facing stiffer competition than ever for the places up front, most of all from United's new Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy. He refused United's offer of a 12-month contract and returned to Tottenham on a free transfer as one of new manager Glenn Hoddle's first signings.
  • 2001
    Age 34
    In April 2001, he was voted Footballer of the Year by both the Professional Footballers' Association and Football Writers' Association.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 2000
    Age 33
    He was not selected at all for the 2000 European Championships by then manager Kevin Keegan, but the retirement of Shearer (despite being four years younger than Sheringham) from international football after that tournament and the arrival of new manager Sven-Göran Eriksson in 2001 saw a return to international favour for him.
    More Details Hide Details He was often deployed as a tactical substitute late in games by Eriksson, valued for his ability to hold the ball up and create intelligent play. In 2001, Sheringham scored an important goal for England against Greece in a World Cup qualifying match within 15 seconds of coming on as a substitute, although this event is overlooked by the 93rd minute equalising free-kick by David Beckham.
    In 2000–01, United secured a third consecutive league title, with Sheringham top-scoring for United and playing some of the best football of his career.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1999
    Age 32
    Sheringham's first-team chances remained limited during 1999–2000, but he still played enough times to merit another Premiership title medal.
    More Details Hide Details
    The pinnacle of his career came when he scored the equaliser and provided the assist for Manchester United's winning goal in the 1999 UEFA Champions League Final against Bayern Munich.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1998
    Age 31
    Speculation that Sheringham would leave United increased just after the 1998–99 season got underway, when Dwight Yorke moved to Old Trafford from Aston Villa.
    More Details Hide Details Yorke immediately formed a prolific partnership with Cole as United went on to regain the Premier League title on the final day of the season. Sheringham's first-team chances were relatively limited but he still managed to make enough appearances to qualify for a championship medal at the end of the season – at the age of 33 he had won his first major trophy. A week later he came off the substitutes bench to score United's opening goal in a 2–0 defeat of Newcastle United the FA Cup final to secure the double. Four days after the FA Cup triumph, Sheringham scored a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final, having come on as a substitute earlier in the game. With seconds of stoppage-time remaining, Ole Gunnar Solskjær scored from Sheringham's headed flick-on, and United won a treble of the Premiership, FA Cup and European Cup with Sheringham – having not won a major honour in his 15-year career on leaving Spurs – now having won every top-level trophy in the English game.
    He appeared in the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cups, as well as the 1996 UEFA European Championship.
    More Details Hide Details Sheringham retired from competitive football at the end of the 2007–08 season with Colchester United, at the age of 42. Having been appointed as the manager of Stevenage in May 2015, he registered himself as a player at the club in November of that year, aged 49.
  • 1997
    Age 30
    Sheringham's first season at Old Trafford was difficult, although he scored 14 goals in all competitions he failed to meet expectations as the 1997–98 season ended without a trophy.
    More Details Hide Details
    In June 1997, Sheringham agreed to join Manchester United in a £3.5 million deal.
    More Details Hide Details He was signed to replace the iconic Eric Cantona whose retirement had left the Old Trafford faithful demanding a big name to fill the gap. His first competitive game for the club was against his former employers, Tottenham, at White Hart Lane. Throughout the game, Sheringham suffered jeers and boos from his former fans, who had been angered by the fact that Sheringham had accused Tottenham of lacking ambition when he made his transfer. In the 60th minute with the score at 0–0, Sheringham missed a penalty, although ended up on the winning side as two late goals gave United the win.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1996
    Age 29
    The pairing came to be known as 'The SAS' ('Shearer and Sheringham') and their most successful time together came in the 1996 European Championships, held in England.
    More Details Hide Details Their most famous contribution was in the 4–1 victory over the Netherlands, a game in the opening group stages in which they both scored twice against one of the strongest teams in the tournament. Though England were eventually knocked out in the semi-finals, many believed that that squad of players such as Sheringham and his contemporaries including Paul Gascoigne, Steve McManaman, Tony Adams and Paul Ince, had done the nation proud. Unfortunately, the England squad were also criticised heavily in the media for their part in several off the field incidents during the lead up to the tournament, where Sheringham, McManaman and Gascoigne were photographed drinking heavily and playing "dentist chair" drinking games as well as destroying the first class cabin of a Cathay Pacific flight, which went down poorly with the public. Sheringham continued to be a first choice selection under new England manager Glenn Hoddle (1996–99) until the emergence of new teenage superstar Michael Owen during the course of 1998 saw him overshadowed. Although Sheringham began the 1998 FIFA World Cup as a starting player with Owen on the bench, after Owen replaced him and almost turned around a defeat against Romania in England's second game of the tournament, it seemed likely that Sheringham's front line international career had come to an end.
    However, despite his prolific strike rate by the end of the 1996–97 season he was 31 years old and had yet to win a major trophy in a career which had so far spanned 15 years; many pundits considered him past his best and likely to finish his career without major honours.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1995
    Age 28
    This had started three years previously in 1995 when Sheringham had snubbed Cole as the latter came on to make his international debut.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1994
    Age 27
    Jürgen Klinsmann, who partnered Sheringham during the 1994–95 season, was later quoted as claiming that Sheringham was the most intelligent strike partner he had ever had.
    More Details Hide Details Sheringham was hugely popular with the Tottenham fans and by the mid-1990s was firmly established as one of the most highly rated strikers in the Premiership.
  • 1993
    Age 26
    In 1993–94, he was Tottenham's top scorer with 14 Premiership goals but played in just 19 games due to injury and this impacted negatively on Tottenham's league form.
    More Details Hide Details Spurs finished 15th and were not completely safe from relegation until the penultimate game of the season. They have not finished lower than this ever since. The following season was better, as he helped Spurs finish seventh in the Premiership and reach the semi-final of the FA Cup, just missing out on European football for the 1995–96 season.
  • 1992
    Age 25
    With his then long-term partner Denise Simms, Sheringham is the father of non-league footballer striker Charlie Sheringham. After his relationship with Simms ended in 1992, Sheringham dated models Katie Price, Nicola Smith (sister of Mandy Smith), and Danielle Lloyd.
    More Details Hide Details Djurgården Millwall Nottingham Forest Manchester United West Ham United A versatile forward, Sheringham was capable of playing both as a striker and as a supporting forward, due to his ability to score and create goals. Due to his vision, his ability to read the game, and his short passing ability, Sheringham was capable of playing off another striker, in a deeper, creative role, where he served as an assist provider, in particular in later years, as he lost pace and stamina. He also possessed good technical ability and upper body strength, which allowed him to retain possession in the box when playing with his back to goal, and lay off the ball for his team mates. As a centre-forward in his prime, he was also very effective and extremely prolific, due to his accurate finishing, opportunism in the area, intelligence, and his ability in the air, which enabled him to be regarded as one of the top Premier League forwards of his generation.
    Forest went on to be relegated in 1992–93, having failed to adequately replace Sheringham in attack.
    More Details Hide Details Sheringham had a successful start to his career at the club by being the Premier League's top goalscorer in its inaugural season, scoring 22 goals (21 with Tottenham and one with Forest). His strike partners at White Hart Lane included Gordon Durie, Ronny Rosenthal, Jürgen Klinsmann and finally Chris Armstrong.
    Sheringham scored Forest's first Premiership goal against Liverpool in August 1992 (which was also the first ever live goal shown on Sky Sports) but a week later he was sold to Tottenham Hotspur for £2.1 million.

    He did well for Forest and helped them finish eighth in the First Division at the end of the 1991–92 season as well as to reach the League Cup final, where they lost to Manchester United.
    More Details Hide Details
    The 25-year-old Sheringham was sold to Nottingham Forest in a £2 million deal in July 1991 to play alongside Nigel Clough.

  • 1990
    Age 23

    More Details Hide Details Sheringham said in his autobiography: "It was a crazy exhilarating time. There we were, little Millwall, in our first season in the First Division and topping the table until about March. Everybody said it couldn't last and of course it couldn't and it didn't, but we gave them all a good run for their money. We were beating the best teams when we shouldn't and getting away draws to which we had no right." Millwall's spell in the top flight was not to last as they were relegated in the following season, finishing bottom of the Division after briefly topping the table again early in the season. Sheringham was again top scorer for Millwall with twelve goals, having missed ten league games through injury. The club had an opportunity to bounce straight back up at the end of the 1990–91 season, reaching the semi-finals of the Division Two play-offs, but they were beaten by Brighton & Hove Albion and remained in the Second Division.
