Hayes, Alex, The Independent (London, England)
Talking of Euro 2000...
Jeepers keepers: David Seaman, England's No 1, let one in against Boro, although the Gunners ran out comfortable 5-1 winners. His nearest rival, Nigel Martyn, continued his imperious form when Leeds defeated Bradford 2-1. Kevin Keegan's third choice, Ian Walker, kept a clean sheet as Spurs won 1-0 at The Dell.
He's not in the squad: And you know why, as Germany's Stefan Schnoor was sent off in the first half of Derby's home defeat to Manchester United, for a second bookable offence.
Then again... World champion defender Frank Leboeuf was sent off against Everton and, yes, you guessed it, for a second bookable offence.
Memo to KK: Jamie Redknapp, who was played out on the left of midfield for England in the two play-off matches against Scotland, was back in the centre, orchestrating Liverpool's impressive 2-0 away win at Sunderland. How about playing him there, Kev?
Support from an old pal: "I wasn't happy with it. Who are we to have a go at the England captain?" asked Watford's manager, Graham Taylor, who handed Shearer his international debut in 1992. "But I know Alan well and the heckling would have been water off a duck's back to him."
Ready for the calls? …
