...a tear. It was with a loud cheer I greeted the news that David Beckham suffered a torn Achilles tendon playing for AC Milan, which should keep him out of England's World Cup squad for the summer.
...yesterday. As England's greatest ever goal scorer celebrated his 70th birthday, what would we give for someone with half his talent playing for the national side today.
...started. It wasn't going to be a good night for a Spurs fan, in reality wanting both the Woolwich scum and ManUre to win and then 'Arry went and picked the Jenasite.
...than he was before? So John Terry was shagging the mother of Wayne Bridge's kid behind his good mate's back, does that make him less of a role model than everything other scumming thing the England captain has got up to?
...expectation? I have to admit I didn't enter last night's Spurs v Liverpool game with the former and the later was probably a different expectation to many others. I didn't expect good things.
...no football. Only snow, inept forecasters, inept government, ambulance chasing lawyers and no one with a pot to piss in during the window?
...during the live FA Cup game on the telly between ManUre and Leeds . What did Ryan Giggs get for Chrimbo?
...in the cup. 'Arry wasn't in the romantic mood as he fielded 11 internationals against lowly Peterborough the only romance was shown by Leeds as they managed the unimaginable.
...that even the BBC SPOTY winner was shocked at getting the award. Phone bills in the Home Counties will be sky high after the viewers decided to make a joke out of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award
...last night was just predictable. As Spurs meekly exited from the Carling Cup 2-0 to ManUre in a supine performance in front of a docile crowd.
...opportunity when...it's Darren Bent and he's thrown himself to the floor without being touch and it's Darren Bent, yet again the ex-Spurs striker failed and looked confused.
...lasted. As the unbeaten run to the start of Spurs season after a 3-1 home loss to ManUre, with old frailties returning, have they found their place in the grand scheme of this year's league?
...than Jimmy cost Spurs. Forget the initial price Ronaldo will cost Real Madrid if he sees out his six years he'll be on about 29 million quid a year wages over half a million a week.
...you did a great job last night. With your superior tactical brain you made sure that watching the Champions League Final against Barcelona on ITV was almost bearable.
...don't ya...Funny how certain football clubs no matter how badly they, along with the country they represent, have been cheated don't elicit much sympathy.
