...good. But with that England performance to go with the 2-0 loss to Chile you might as well give up.
...bound. Be careful what you wish for. This could get embarrassing in the jungle. As England beat Poland to go to the World Cup and mask what has gone before and optimism raises it's ugly head again.
...England. As they finally beat some country that isn't called Moldova or San Marino in their World Cup qualifying group. Hang your heads in shame Montenegro.
...they're 18th in the FIFA rankings. But losing to this England side, even in a friendly in which they didn't look bothered, surely indicates that ranking is close to being right.
...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.
...his first World Cup qualifier. But you know he hasn't. You know what he thinks he saw isn't what he actually did, by he effusive praise of certain individuals and the knowledge they'll be there against Ukraine on Tuesday.
...can you explain that Fabio? Yes that's right and England side shorn of the usual suspects who have failed time and time again put in a pretty good performance. So what now?
...the F.A. way. As we are drip fed the names of the seven players that journos have found out Fabio has phoned to tell them they won't be going to the World Cup, there's no great surprise bar one, thankfully, named Theo Walcott.
...does anyone actually believe it? Yes it was just a friendly against Mexico but the score was immensely flattering and it wasn't exactly a one off poor performance it had such hallmarks of previous regimes.
...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.
...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.
...that is your elbow. Fabio Capello did a really great job reading Wayne Bridge's mind, Fabio says everything is OK and Wayne is in, Wayne says no he isn't...
...Wayne? As Fabio Cappelo consoled Wayne Bridge with a pat on the head he promised him not only a game next week for England but a trip to the World Cup, to make up for Terry shagging Vanessa.
...doomed. Ashley Cole has broken his ankle, it's all over the dream has ended before it began.It's a good job our esteemed leader Caesar Fabio tested out all those other options...oops.
...you know there's no case to answer. Yes John Terry is a scumbag but the sports minister Gerry Sutcliffe didn't seem too bothered about other scumbags getting caught with their pants down, or holding the position of England captain.
