...actually managed to do it. The Burnley Bumpkin actually managed to rock up to a cricket ground where everything was in his favour and not blow it. A somewhat green and undercooked Sri Lanka side helped.
...or two. The build up to England's first pre-Euro warm up was basically “we're not going overboard this time round with our optimism but we're going to win it aren't we?”, Turkey might have helped with that.
...I've come to talk with you again. In a season that was supposed to end Spursy, Spurs managed to be more Spursy than ever before as they blew it on the final day in the most Spursy fashion imaginable.
...points. In a season when Spurs have put up some of their best numbers in Premier League era the weekend loss to Southampton put them ahead of another unwanted table.
...fighting. The bank holiday barney of Stamford Bridge saw Spurs lose their heads and a two goal lead to hand the “we won Leicester the league” trophy to the jubilant Chelski.
...you. And after Spurs surrendered two points against West Brom to go 7 points behind the league leaders there's actually still hope, with three games left. Gawd 'elp us.
...tally-ho! A cold Monday in Stoke, yup this Spurs side can do that, as they cut the gap on the league leaders to five points with four games to go.
...eventually. Boy, that escalated quickly, as Spurs went from shambles and out of it to cruising back into contention, with a six minute three goal burst to beat Man Utd for the first time in 15 years at White hart Lane.
...after all. After Spurs came from behind to get a draw at Liverpool, it was a question of points gained or points dropped, the state of Schrödinger's League unknown until the box of Leicester's game on Sunday opened.
...a comedy giant. Sad news that the other half of The Two Ronnies, Ronnie Corbett has died, aged 85.
...and love. While England's almost A-team shone in Germany the B-team grasped their chance with both hands, fell over, let it slip out of their grasp and threw it into the back of their own net, as they lost at home to the Dutch.
...being Roy. Roy Hodgson is currently riding high on the coattails of players he wouldn't have picked for the squad never mind started if his favourites were available.
...Mr Larry Sanders. The US comedian, writer and actor, probably best known for “The Larry Sanders Show” has died aged 66.
...a turn. The Dutch great Johan Cruyff has died, aged 68, will probably be most remembered for that one moment in one game but he was much more than that but then how many players have a move named after them?
...later. England finally won their first Grand Slam since their World Cup triumph, thirteen whole years ago, with a victory in Paris over the French.
