...now. And that's why a second or third string German side barely tried and beat an England team that didn't have a single shot on target.
...good. But with that England performance to go with the 2-0 loss to Chile you might as well give up.
...bound. Be careful what you wish for. This could get embarrassing in the jungle. As England beat Poland to go to the World Cup and mask what has gone before and optimism raises it's ugly head again.
...England. As they finally beat some country that isn't called Moldova or San Marino in their World Cup qualifying group. Hang your heads in shame Montenegro.
...was a fitting game. 'Arry could have managed either of these teams in a parallel universe. He could have quite easily overseen a game as utterly devoid of skill and talent as was put on by and England side as they failed yet again to win against a team that's not San Marino or Moldova.
...watching that game with a stinking cold. Well, hell that just ramped up the misery. England again put at least 4 past Moldova which should tell that country it's time to pack it in.
...in charge. There'd be as much if not a better chance of England winning the 2022 World Cup than with Greg Dyke if yesterday's showing is anything to go by. Yeah! Rat fans!!!
...chips. We were told what a courageous and innovative captain Australia had in Michael Clarke when he made his declaration at tea on Sunday. Courage was lost when England were about to win and was replaced by a hissy fit.
...for the first time. It was fun the way England's ineptness gave the Jocks belief and hope for that to be shattered in a 3-2 defeat.
...respect. Throughout the whole of this last Ashes test match the pundits told us Onions should have been picked instead of Tim Bresnan. What would have happened if they got their wish.
...in Manchester, what are the chances? England sit here on Tuesday morning still holding the Ashes but they could quite easily be sitting there looking down the wrong end of a 2-1 deficit to the worst Aussie side since crying Kim's.
...seen? The only way to improve this Aussie touring side is to get all the old blokes in the crowd and media boxes to don the baggy green cap and get back out on the pitch.
...Ian Bell scoring a match winning ton. Never mind losing, that was somewhat expected, never mind the batting collapse, letting the arch bottler top score when it really mattered is something not many teams have ever done.
...lost yet another cricket final. Even though this one didn't end up as a 50 over game, rain reducing it to a T20 bash, they still couldn't help themselves from choking.
...all his fault. He did a pretty good job for a tactically limited manager who was extremely restricted by the limited way English football, footballers and top flight managers look down at the Under-21 set up.
