...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.
...can't even get you back on track? We found out that Newcastle becoming the only team not to be cured by Doctor Tottenham this season are as bad as it gets.
...this season? In losing to an Aston Villa side “managed” by Tim Sherwood, Spurs managed to out Spurs themselves in providing the new standard for inept performances this season.
...marvellous. Former Australian cricket captain and superstar cricket commentator Richie Benaud has died aged 84.
...this. Easter Sunday was Sky Super Sunday and the days first football outing Spurs away to Burnley couldn't have been more super if it tried.
...flashbacks. Roy Hodgson went wild and crazy with his experimental team selection for England's friendly against Italy and somehow came up with a side duller than usual.
