...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.
...it was 10 years ago today. Owen hat-trick, screamer from Gerrard even Heskey scored and we stuffed the Germans... just memories...
...Germany. Keggy reacted with humility after that defeat, Fabio reacted like England's biggest defeat in a World Cup finals came as a great shock to him, well it didn't come as a great shock here.
...coursing through your veins? Or is it the remnants of some horrible Danish lager. The opening game of this World Cup had a number of parallels with Italia '90 and it looks to carry on with more inept performances.
...last night. Was ITV telling us how good England were. Unsurprisingly England were crap in the first game of a tournament, unsurprisingly Lampard and Gerrard didn't work and unsurprisingly ITV talked them up live and and exclusive.
...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.
...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.
...make. From making England look thoroughly inept under the McClown, Croatia made Fabio#s men look world beaters with an inept performance in last night's World Cup qualifier that booked England's place in South Africa, glossing over the concerns.
...complacency. No matter how bad Fabio's favourites play and how well those coming off the bench perform we all know who will be the first choice which creates nothing but complacency.
Sven squad includes Emile Heskey
