    Smile company chequebook to buy his way out of trouble.

    From England manager Capello needs a confident show to get the ball rolling | Mail Online

    But Saturday evening could still be uncomfortable in what represents the first competitive international of Capello's managerial career.
    If the Italian expected to have a settled side after five friendlies, he has quickly discovered the harsh realities of international football.
    As well as limited time with the players, he sometimes has to work with those of limited ability, and he can no longer use the company chequebook to buy his way out of trouble.

    1) What does "settled side" mean?

    2) What does "company chequebook" mean?
