...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.
...as planned. In fact it probably couldn't have gone worse for them. Revenge, for that's what the Newsnight “investigation” they actually showed was.
...love. Hapless, hopeless, outplayed and technically exposed when up against a half decent side, as Ukraine are - it does take a major side to embarrass them - and ultimately lucky. Very lucky.
...even worse to watch. It was excruciating watching Great Britain - no Team GB here - being thwarted by their own success in the men's road race on the first full day of the Olympics. Not just because Mark Cavendish didn't have a chance to win.
...back. After England's latest one nil, uninspiring, victory if they are going to play like Switzerland they should at least look like Switzerland.
...every football ground. The good old days of pre-Premier League football, where the box didn't resemble Come Dancing at corners.
...well. FA chairman David Bernstein was at the fifth round Cup tie to watch his future employee seal the deal on the England job. And didn't 'Arry do well.
..for Wiggins, Froome and Sky. But we should overlook all the what ifs and marvel at a great Vuelta a España that ended with two British riders on the podium.
...but you can broadcast it. ITV yet again do their best to hammer the final nail into the coffin of the F.A. Cup because everything turns to crap once it lands on that channel.
...shocker. Well as of writing this that is, so far I haven't heard that Michael Dawson is suffering any career threatening injury due to his 67 minute outing as England beat Denmark, last night.
... isn't that what ITV kept telling you? Nobody mentioned it at The Lane as Spurs beat Charlton with reasonable ease after the half-time introduction of Luka Modric which everyone had to suffer listening to on the radio.
...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.
...or have they been bugging me? A newspaper review of the World Cup TV coverage so far pretty much echoed everything I'd been saying, especially about the odious performance of the main ITV trio of commentators.
...last night. Was ITV telling us how good England were. Unsurprisingly England were crap in the first game of a tournament, unsurprisingly Lampard and Gerrard didn't work and unsurprisingly ITV talked them up live and and exclusive.
...all football. They have the amazing ability to turn everything to shit, Hell they pretty much did it to Morecambe and Wise what chance has the game got. Still it's really the fault of the F.A. and the 30 pieces of silver they got.
