...the results. It is after all a result based business and that's what Roy's England managed against Slovenia to go unbeaten in qualification in the season after that miserable World Cup.
...Glasgow. Lizzie Armitstead always seems to come second in the big events, Geraint Thomas while a winner on the track spends his road days slogging his guts out for others.
...it. Italy did what Italy do, that is just enough to win, in beating England 2-1 in their opening World Cup group game but the pundits just turn a blind eye.
...departure of Tim Sherwood. The worst kept secret in football - this week - finally played out as Daniel Levy admitted he'd made another mistake that thankfully had a get out clause.
...Wiggo? Bradley Wiggins' share of the Sports Personality of the Year vote didn't quite match Mark Cavendish's when he won the award last but then Mark didn't have Olympic gold medal winners to compete with.
...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.
...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.
...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.
...football rants. A QPR fan has reached his limit with the so called beautiful game and it's better to let it all out rather than bottle it up after all.
...servant of the game. Former England player and manager Sir Bobby Robson lost his final battle against cancer and died today aged 76, a excellent club manager he wasn't quite there with the top job.
An excellent video showing some classic goals form Spurs heroes past and present, Greaves, Chivers, Peters, Gilzean, Hoddle, Waddle, Lineker, Jurgen, Ozzy, Ricky, Berba.
