...dampish squib. Well we should be grateful for small mercies as the usual slow start to Spurs season with a first game loss was avoided with the one all draw away to Everton.
...in Brazil. And yet you still suspect they couldn't organise a piss up anywhere near a brewery.
...continues. Yet another yellow jersey for Chris Froome, to go with seven stage victories, one third of the stages, by British riders, and the best young rider in Adam Yates, it's a British game now.
...this. With the news that the F.A. are at any moment going to announce Sam Allardyce as the new England manager I'm pointing the finger at Newcastle and Norwich.
...tournament. Euro 2016 ended as it started and then meandered for a month as the only team to beat Iceland lost the final to the team that qualified out of the group stage below Iceland. It was rubbish.
...can there be a better epitaph for Roy Hdosgon than his own words. The coward that is ex England manager Roy Hodgson finally turned up to be asked questions and was most put out by the fact, didn't they know he'd run away to prevent such things?
...of a beating. Well if that's not a fitting end to Roy Hodgson's tenure as England manager, losing to little Iceland in one of the most inept performances for years to exit Euro 2016, I don't know what is.
...a lot easier than Tesco. Yes we had to go with the obligatory supermarket reference to the fact England will be facing the smallest nation in the tournament, Iceland, in the last 16 of Euro 2016.
...wanted. Roy has been desperate to play Wilshere and Henderson and he finally got his wish and boy did it work a dream as England drew their final group game to finish below Wales.
...genius. Apparently we all have to be in awe of the great managerial skills of Roy Hodgson after England came from behind to beat Wales in their Euro 2016 group game.
...Roy Hodgson. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the biggest impediment to this England side is Roy Hodgson and he couldn't help himself from proving it again in England's Euro 2016 opener against Russia.
...the irony. A.K.A. Defenders? We don't need no stinkin' defenders... Roy Hodgson makes a mess of the England squad and their tactics in the last warm up game before Euro 2016 against Portugal.
...fight. But again they don't look to be in the best shape when they let the Burnley Bumpkin get a third five for in the series.
...when it's obvious to everyone else. The fact that Roy Hodgson is still dithering over which striker to take to Euro 2016 shows that the biggest factor in any England failure this summer will be Roy. Can we drop him from the 23?
...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.
