...FIFA ranking. The higher you get in the FIFA world rankings the stranger some of the inclusions especially England's repeated presence in the top 10.
...the old boss? As I've posted here before I wanted Roy Hodgson to be the England boss. I've wanted it for years, since Glenn Hoddle was sacked. You know when they say be careful what you wish for...
...almost England. Regardless of England's first competitive victory over Sweden, this was a match between pretty equally matched sides, turned on piece of good fortune - James Milner's yellow card.
...more? From the squad he chose to the first starting lineup he put out to the formation they lined up in to the changes he made and the performance they put on in beating Norway one nil he's doing his best to shout 'this is all I've got'.
...is the highlight. It highlights how the game went. Spurs went to Liverpool not to lose and came away with a point.
...plea. The ex-Chelsea and Milan boss wants to stay in England when he comes off his gap year and the F.A.'s choice as the next England manager could point the way where.
...can you explain that Fabio? Yes that's right and England side shorn of the usual suspects who have failed time and time again put in a pretty good performance. So what now?
...with little talent. Newcastle came to The Lane with little intent on playing football but just to stifle Spurs and frustrate with spoiling tactics, it ended with Spurs down to ten men but also a clean sheet and the 3 points.
...it was only England after all. Not only that it's still a Fabio led England, with much of the same dead wood hanging onto their places as competed with France during the World Cup for the worst team on show.
