...series? England have convincingly won the first test match of their last two series only to roll over and capitulate, after their 169 run victory in the Ashes opener can they stop the Aussies at Lord's?
...bowling. Ex-Aussie paceman Glenn McGrath knows a bit or too about cricket, about bowling, about being damn good at it and about having a little dig at England before an Ashes, sledging for want of a better word.
...Bell, Broad and Anderson. The cricket fan who stumped up what was probably a decent whack might have actually got their money's worth in the one day series between England and New Zealand.
...he won the Tour? As Chris Froome crossed the line on the final two stages of this years Critérium du Dauphiné it's the happiest I think I've seen him on a bike since his Tour de France victory in 2013.
...the results. It is after all a result based business and that's what Roy's England managed against Slovenia to go unbeaten in qualification in the season after that miserable World Cup.
...it was very fitting. A lot of people thought the Champions League final was Townsend's farewell so were surprised when he turned up for England's trip to Ireland.
...hour. It would have been a special way to bow out adding the hour record to his already impressive palmares.
...New Zealand. The recent two Test match “series” between England and New Zealand finished all-square with both sides getting what they deserved but the punters missing out on what should have been a deciding third game.
...adieu, adieu, to you. Sepp Blatter has left the building.
...played. Somehow Match of the Day managed to cut out every minute of play in which Spurs had the ball in their highlights if the final game of the season, well bar one incident.
...feel. Spurs' last home game of the season against relegation fodder / strugglers Hull City wasn't exactly the party affair.
...the last King of the Blues. Sad, sad news this morning that B.B. King has passed away aged 89 the last of the three Kings of the Blues.
..."It's the way I play". This has been some top trolling by Graves, Strauss and the rest at the ECB, which all should be glad about, never mind the gnashing of the teeth of those that don't have to put up with Kevin Pietersen.
...the season. Stoke, yes Stoke City, yes Stoke City under Mark Hughes, never mind a banana skin Stoke City turned out to be a bacon sarnie for Pochettino and his Spurs side.
...late. Some were apparently happy that Spurs showed more signs of life than of late in their home defeat to Man Citeh.
