...they were bitching about him not doing. With Spurs on a winning run, one of their best starts to a Premier League season, the Old Trafford hoodoo done and dusted and the players themselves talking about how happy they are the media are scrambling for something to have a go at Andre Villas-Boas with.
...easier? Aston Villa let Spurs cruise to a 2-0 victory, that moves them up to 3rd in the league, with an odd choice of players and tactics by Alex McLeish.
...purpose. That was ex-England manager Graham Taylor's opinion. But maybe the only purpose it served was England finally beating Sweden after 43 years.
...disguise? England go overboard celebrating their lucky 1-0 victory over Spain in a friendly like the Jocks did back in 1967.
...happening? England to only draw after being ahead at half-time and Wayne Rooney to be sent off. Any bets taken?
...tired. Yet again the tired old excuse is dug up by an England manager who has just witnessed another inept display by players he has picked as England struggle to draw with Switzerland in the Euro 2012 qualifier.
...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.
...shocker. Well as of writing this that is, so far I haven't heard that Michael Dawson is suffering any career threatening injury due to his 67 minute outing as England beat Denmark, last night.
...can't stand to see him play for Spurs either. Just hope she's blocked his phone number or he'll be on to her to make 'Arry Redknapp play him just like Wilson Palacios' mother did before the draw with Everton.
...against you in an international? It just highlights was a simple chance to qualify Fabio was handed and get everyone back up into a frenzy of belief. But he keeps making those odd selections.
...the F.A. way. As we are drip fed the names of the seven players that journos have found out Fabio has phoned to tell them they won't be going to the World Cup, there's no great surprise bar one, thankfully, named Theo Walcott.
...at the World Cup? After the two final warm up games against Mexico and Japan that England luckily won it looked like most of the side don't want a place in the final 23 man squad. But it brought two main problems with Fabio and the way he does things.
...before unlike Fabio not well after the World Cup finals. Fabio Capello has named his provisional 30 squad for the World Cup it includes the usual suspects alongside some stupid choices and 6 players from Spurs.
...playing for Sunderland. She wouldn't have missed two penalties, or a sitter in the box and Spurs would have been on a far worse stuffing than the eventual 3-1 scoreline.
...I understand the value of some players against this sort of team better now. But Fabio didn't want to name names after England's abysmal capitulation to a Brazil side that didn't really bother because they didn't have to.
