…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 […]
...against San Marino. I take it rain interrupted play or was it bad light? Should San Marino be in World Cup qualifiers? Or are they value for exposing England?
...through Spurs. You could visible see all the hatred the Spurs' players feel for Andre Villas-Boas during the 90 minutes, plus “insulting” time added on, at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
...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.
...went in. As Spurs put three past Reading each one of the three a savage blow to their campaign to run AVB out of town. Three games to save his career, that went well for them didn't it.
...friendly in Switzerland? A half full Wankdorf Stadium in Berne suggested no. Even if the Olympics hadn't just finished there still wouldn't be much interest in this game, seeing what England should have been like at the Euros.
...or is it a disorder? What are we left with after these last two weeks of the best Olympics ever but memories and the realisation that all there is now doesn't match up.
...he got right in the column. Don't know how long Des Lynam's column about the BBC broadcasting of the Olympics was but in classic Twitter mob style they picked out about the only sentence in the whole piece that was accurate.
...not 9 months. Been reading a few people disagreeing that Bradley Wiggins victory in the Tour de France is the top sporting achievement by a Brit. His addition of Le Tour to three other race wins means he's done something no other rider has ever achieved.
...convictions. Italy at a tournament after a domestic scandal, only one outcome but just you can never write off the Germans.
...deep fried. Glasgow Rangers pretty much started the death of Scottish football 25 years ago, could they now finish it off and be left standing and laughing?
...FIFA ranking. The higher you get in the FIFA world rankings the stranger some of the inclusions especially England's repeated presence in the top 10.
...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...
…I though England would nick it. I never thought they would outplay Italy, I never thought they’d pass it about like they knew what they were doing, I never thought they’d look like a proper football team but I thought with the luck they had previously and if Shearer can actually figure out that it’s […]
...at the Euros? It felt just like watching Spurs in Gdansk last night, but it really was Germany versus Greece in the second quarter final.
