…Poland on Tuesday night. After all if he’s going to act the part of McClown he might as well dress the part. Just get the overwhelming sense of deja-vu and that this World Cup qualifying campaign is going the way of Steve McClaren’s doomed single campaign in charge. Uninspiring and lucky with that luck running [...]
...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.
...the old boss? As I've posted here before I wanted Roy Hodgson to be the England boss. I've wanted it for years, since Glenn Hoddle was sacked. You know when they say be careful what you wish for...
...scripts. Hours after being found unanimously not guilty of tax evasion charges Fabio Capello chucks the dummy and walks out of the England job.
...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.
...England's cause? Could the alleged racial abuse he received from John Terry help England by removing Terry and Ferdinand's brother, Rio?
...passenger. Rooney's three match ban meaning he'll miss the group games in Euro 2012 but Fabio will still take him along just in case.
...happening? England to only draw after being ahead at half-time and Wayne Rooney to be sent off. Any bets taken?
...plea. The ex-Chelsea and Milan boss wants to stay in England when he comes off his gap year and the F.A.'s choice as the next England manager could point the way where.
...the lower down them you go. Wales are in the right spot in the world rankings around Haiti, Granada etc. It's England at 4th who are in the false position.
...Fabio game. Against a team that wasn't even mediocre Fabio's side put in a performance that provides a win but won't excite anyone bar the delusional.
...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.
...can you explain that Fabio? Yes that's right and England side shorn of the usual suspects who have failed time and time again put in a pretty good performance. So what now?
...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.
