Hodgson in no hurry to offer 'happy' Bullard extended deal

The Fulham manager Roy Hodgson is adamant midfielder Jimmy Bullard will not be getting a new contract any time soon despite his recent call-up to the England squad by Fabio Capello.

Premier League management won't seem quite as difficult a business this morning to Paul Ince.

Goalscoring the problem for England strike force

Michael Owen scores a goal for England every 155 minutes he spends on the pitch. Peter Crouch's record is even better, he scores one every 116 minutes he spends on the pitch for England. Fabio Capello does not believe that Owen is fit enough to play for England in the forthcoming 2010 World Cup qualifiers but without both these players, whom does he expect to score his goals?

Carling Cup round-up: Hammers escape exit after being forced into extra-time

West Ham United needed extra time to see off League Two strugglers Macclesfield 4-1 at Upton Park last night, but the Hammers were not the only Premier League side to come close to being dumped out of the Carling Cup by lower-league opposition.
