...repeat... The first game for England's new manager, Gareth Southgate, saw a struggle to get a 2-0 victory over Malta, with a performance that was indistinguishable from his predecessor's teams.
...is no way to go through life son. How fitting that Sam Allardyce's tenure as England manager ended through his own greed, stupidity and ego that quickly surfaced even before his first game in charge.
...clown. I see the FA have a new man in charge, Greg Clarke, and in a pleasant keeping with tradition they're replaced on berk with another.
...this. With the news that the F.A. are at any moment going to announce Sam Allardyce as the new England manager I'm pointing the finger at Newcastle and Norwich.
...wanted. Roy has been desperate to play Wilshere and Henderson and he finally got his wish and boy did it work a dream as England drew their final group game to finish below Wales.
...or two. The build up to England's first pre-Euro warm up was basically “we're not going overboard this time round with our optimism but we're going to win it aren't we?”, Turkey might have helped with that.
...Steve Bruce. He had one chance at redemption but he blew it, while others blow up his ego talking about what a great job he and his team did. No they didn't.
...World Cup. Italy, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Brazil, Spain can all forget it Roy “headaches” Hodgson has got this one. Beating Denmark was just the prelude to greater glory in Brazil.
...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!!!
...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.
...watching, does AVB get the blame? Spurs avoided an upset by overcoming Coventry City in the 3rd round of the FA Cup with a bit of ease.
...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.
...should he? As soon as it was announced on Sunday night that the F.A. have made their approach to the man they want to take over as England boss the knives were out because that man was Roy Hodgson and not 'Arry Redknapp.
...Wembley... Wembley... We're the famous Tottenham Hotspur and we're off to Wembley. Doesn't quite feel right when it's only the Cup semi-final but it's still Wembley after beating Bolton 3-1 in the quarters..
