Rooney closes in on goal century

There is a sepia tint already about that immortal afternoon when Wayne Rooney, five days short of his 17th birthday and with something resembling a fringe, took down a 20-yard pass from Thomas Gravesen with his right foot, swivelled, nudged the ball twice towards goal and sent a shot past the helpless Sol Campbell and David Seaman which prompted a statement more prescient than Clive Tyldesley will ever conjure up again. "Remember the name: Wayne Rooney."

Aston Villa 0, Portsmouth 0: Redknapp calls for life ban as linesman is cut

As 25th anniversary presents go, the point Harry Redknapp took away from Villa Park yesterday was hardly something to show the grandkids, no matter how gutsily earned. Instead the Portsmouth manager, who began his stint in gafferdom way back in October 1983, will bitterly remember this afternoon for a nasty incident involving the fans behind the visitors' bench.

Inside Lines: FA will bring on Blair to help England score World Cup win

Former prime minister Tony will be asked to play a key role in bringing the 2018 World Cup to England. He is expected to be among the luminaries lined up by the Football Association when the bid board of big-hitters from politics, sport and the commercial world is announced shortly by the FA chairman Lord Triesman. Blair, who privately expressed an interest in being part of the bid team before he left office, played an influential part in London capturing the 2012 Olympics. Triesman, a Labour peer, clearly believes his former leader still carries the clout to woo Fifa voters in what will be a highly charged game of political football, with Russia, now almost certain to be England's chief rivals, making it known they will do "whatever it takes" to win the bid.

Night of a thousand stars – and £600,000 for Labour

Cardiff City 0 Portsmouth 1: Redknapp basks in relief after Pompey secure just reward

Harry Redknapp never got his wish for a quiet FA Cup celebration. He said that he wanted to get away from Wembley as soon as was polite and head home with his wife, Sandra, to the little Italian restaurant around the corner from his house.

Actor, model, whatever... Gordon falls for the lure of celebrity culture
