...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?
...you fucked it up? That made it just the sweeter, in their own newly HP'd library, they were cruising, we were nowhere, they were gloating and talking of how many but in the end Spurs had the last laugh.
...is the most shocking thing. Is it any real shock that members of the Pakistan cricket team have been implicated in a betting scam as a middle man took £150k and the no-balls followed.
...to England. The fact he's been captain for a couple of months and two who games means we won't miss his leadership and the form he's shown over this injury prone season and the last few years for England, means he shouldn't be missed as much as some would have us believe.
...from England's opposition. After a shocking first half against Egypt at Wembley, England managed to scrape a win but that team put out by Capello and led by Gerrard should fill no one with hopes of World Cup glory.
...remember and hate. The England rugby side that puts in shockingly awful performances that are followed up by the manager and captain saying how great they were.
...post three days later? England actually not only manage a win at Twickenham in their opening Six Nations game but the score three tries in the process and it takes till Tuesday for a post.
...you know there's no case to answer. Yes John Terry is a scumbag but the sports minister Gerry Sutcliffe didn't seem too bothered about other scumbags getting caught with their pants down, or holding the position of England captain.
...than he was before? So John Terry was shagging the mother of Wayne Bridge's kid behind his good mate's back, does that make him less of a role model than everything other scumming thing the England captain has got up to?
...Anytime you tie Lou Gehrig is a special time now Derek Jeter has just got to get one more hit to pass the great man's record.
...you lost the Ashes...again! It feels a lot different from 2005 doesn't it, which is better, it's hard to say. Two mediocre teams playing some poor cricket but do England have a future with this side?
...just one needed. After the rain had the biggest say on the draw in the third Ashes Test at Edgbaston, it's down to Headingley and the Oval, can England just get one more win and seal it or will this barbecue summer have the final say?
...don't help the knees. Andrew Flintoff announced he'll be quitting test cricket after this Ashes series to go and slog his knackered joints out in the one day game, was he better than the numbers suggest?
