...is no way to go through life son. How fitting that Sam Allardyce's tenure as England manager ended through his own greed, stupidity and ego that quickly surfaced even before his first game in charge.
...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
...it. Italy did what Italy do, that is just enough to win, in beating England 2-1 in their opening World Cup group game but the pundits just turn a blind eye.
...dead. How many ex-professional players who are now media pundits confidently stated the League Cup final would be between Chelsea and Villa? How many are ever right and why do we really need them?
…I though England would nick it. I never thought they would outplay Italy, I never thought they’d pass it about like they knew what they were doing, I never thought they’d look like a proper football team but I thought with the luck they had previously and if Shearer can actually figure out that it’s […]

...passenger. Rooney's three match ban meaning he'll miss the group games in Euro 2012 but Fabio will still take him along just in case.
...take a bow. Poor old Andy Gray, ever get the feeling he wasn't that well liked at Sky Sports and that they were quite happy to bin him and his reported £1.7 million salary off?
...giving. And the latest episode in this desperate club's history is just another moment to give us glee as they replace statistically their most successful manager i history with their long time target Alan Pardew.
...or have they been bugging me? A newspaper review of the World Cup TV coverage so far pretty much echoed everything I'd been saying, especially about the odious performance of the main ITV trio of commentators.
...football rants. A QPR fan has reached his limit with the so called beautiful game and it's better to let it all out rather than bottle it up after all.
...of football, thanks Villa. As Spurs season ended with a whimper so did another club's but that was far more funny seeing grown men in barcode shirts crying their eyes out.
...for the good of the game. Helping the Premier League rid itself of the Toonarmy others now have to step up and do their job, biggest club in the lower leagues but still without any silverware in a few lifetimes.
The search for England's new manager can take time but certain things have to be started. But the move to have Shearer take the job has to be stopped now.
