...for England brigade. Steven Gerrard will lead out England tonight in Sweden in the process making his 100th appearance for the country.
...against San Marino. I take it rain interrupted play or was it bad light? Should San Marino be in World Cup qualifiers? Or are they value for exposing England?
...thanks. The hapless dolt of a defender has done England proud by helping remove former manager Fabio Capello and now former England captain John Terry.
...was putting up a stink. From the man himself to his beloved extra officials to the visiting fans a stink was put out at White Hart Lane as Spurs were denied an opening game victory in the Europa League.
...as it started. With a Kevin Pietersen orchestrated mess. Though in classic Andrew Strauss style as he quit cricket completely he played down the chance to stick the knife in.
...on that? England in subcontinent conditions against a side that had lost one of their previous 15 one day internationals and had just stuffed them three zip in the test series.
...scripts. Hours after being found unanimously not guilty of tax evasion charges Fabio Capello chucks the dummy and walks out of the England job.
...England's cause? Could the alleged racial abuse he received from John Terry help England by removing Terry and Ferdinand's brother, Rio?
...happening? England to only draw after being ahead at half-time and Wayne Rooney to be sent off. Any bets taken?
...does it in style. New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter's second hit out of five just happens to be his 3000th.
...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?
...nothing new there then. During the first half against England in their Euro 2012 qualifier Wales showed exactly why they are ranked below Luxembourg on the world stage.
...substitution. One scumbag who has played a full part in past failures, Terry, regains the captain's armband from another scumbag who has played a full part in past failures, Ferdinand.
...I almost forgot. It's been a bit remiss of me, what's it been a week now after the Aussies were yet again crushed in their own backyard by an innings, for the third time.
...don't you? With over 12,000 test runs in the bag, after his misses the final test of this series is that for him in the baggy green, set to be remembered for losing three Ashes series?
