...resumed. After a promising start to the new season things are back to normal as Liverpool put another bunch of unanswered goals past Spurs in yet another lifeless display.
...Hullish sort of places. After seeing off AEL Limassol in the qualifying match with ease Spurs go into a Europa League group with no real glamour ties and hopefully no real banana skins.
...then. 'Arry Redknapp, Glenn Hoddle, Steven Caulker and Bobby Zamora were all taught a footballing lesson by the new stars of The Lane, Pochettino, Dier, Chadli, Capoue and Lamela, as Spurs beat QPR 4-0.
...forgot. Used to think it couldn't get worse than “Thursday nights, Channel five”, well Thursday night and not on any channel is far, far worse. As Spurs beat Limassol in their opening Europa League play-off tie.

...gone. R.I.P. Thomas Erdelyi aka Tommy Ramone the last surviving original member of The Ramones.
...they get the last laugh. In Euro 2000 Germany finished bottom of the their group after defeat by England, they took that as an insult and while we're still stuck with Shearer they are holding aloft the ultimate trophy
...great. England football team at the World Cup, the cricket team against Sri Lanka and now India, the rugby teams against the southern hemisphere - some say that Murray berk at Wimbledon. Now the cycling is imploding.
...the blond arrow. The Real Madrid player, widely regarded as one of the world's greatest players died on Monday (July 7th) aged 88.
...Sheffield? The 2014 Tour De France Depart through Yorkshire were reet grand.
