...they get the last laugh. In Euro 2000 Germany finished bottom of the their group after defeat by England, they took that as an insult and while we're still stuck with Shearer they are holding aloft the ultimate trophy
...German. Do you know your Schweinswal from your Meerschweinchen? Well does it look like a pig...
...we shall all be back. Following on from yesterday's post another great final line of a film. Leslie Howard's classic “'Pimpernel' Smith”.
...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.
...it really happened folks. Marcel Kittel came from behind to beat the Manx Missile, Mark Cavendish, on stage 12 of the Tour de France.
...for England brigade. Steven Gerrard will lead out England tonight in Sweden in the process making his 100th appearance for the country.
...convictions. Italy at a tournament after a domestic scandal, only one outcome but just you can never write off the Germans.
...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.
...when they said England would win the group? Oh that's right I've watch enough England games like this latest one the final group D game against Ukraine. It's amazing what a couple of very scrappy, lucky, wins can do for reality.
...to. Only the team from Tottenham could lose out on a place in next season's Champions League taken from them by a game this season in which they weren't involved and the bloody Germans lost on penalties.
...it was 10 years ago today. Owen hat-trick, screamer from Gerrard even Heskey scored and we stuffed the Germans... just memories...
...then how can this man be in the frame? Steve 'McClown' McClaren isn't English, he's Dutch everyone knows it, how could the F.A. hear that interview and think he's from anywhere else but the Netherlands?
...champions. So that's Spurs' lot in the Champions League draw then, Italians, Germans and Dutch.
...or should that be England 2. That's what it would have been on paper after the German's stuffed Maradonna's lot in the quarter-final on Saturday, of course on actual grass it probably would have somewhat different.
...aren't you Germany. Not only did the German's thrash us at our own game in the World Cup but now they're doing a damn fine job of analysing the problems with the England team as Thomas Mueller says there's too many alpha males.
