...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.
...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.
...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.
…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 [...]
...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.
...scripts. Hours after being found unanimously not guilty of tax evasion charges Fabio Capello chucks the dummy and walks out of the England job.
...halves. Spurs come out of the blocks against Chelski all guns blazing then squander the lead letting the visitors back into it before going end to end.
...England's cause? Could the alleged racial abuse he received from John Terry help England by removing Terry and Ferdinand's brother, Rio?
...substitution. One scumbag who has played a full part in past failures, Terry, regains the captain's armband from another scumbag who has played a full part in past failures, Ferdinand.
...Fabio. Neither have I claimed you are a monster, rather I put you firmly in the Italian version of Sven Goran-Eriksson as England manager, you beat little teams in qualifying but are out of our depth when the real thing comes round.
...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.
...but what have they got be be fearful about? Fear of failure? Why on earth would this group of England players have a fear of failure? They've failed repeatedly for England and faced no consequences.
...before unlike Fabio not well after the World Cup finals. Fabio Capello has named his provisional 30 squad for the World Cup it includes the usual suspects alongside some stupid choices and 6 players from Spurs.
...no in between. They say a week is a long time in politics, it certainly is in the life of a Spurs supporter from the misery of the cup semi-final to winning two derbies, it started out in a trough now it's at a peak.
...from England's opposition. After a shocking first half against Egypt at Wembley, England managed to scrape a win but that team put out by Capello and led by Gerrard should fill no one with hopes of World Cup glory.
