...at the World Cup? After the two final warm up games against Mexico and Japan that England luckily won it looked like most of the side don't want a place in the final 23 man squad. But it brought two main problems with Fabio and the way he does things.
...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.
...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?
...the real Fabio's England? As the England manager's side lost his 100% qualifying record with a 1-0 defeat to the Ukraine all the problems of the last few years were highlighted, lucky then it was on teh interweb.
...make. From making England look thoroughly inept under the McClown, Croatia made Fabio#s men look world beaters with an inept performance in last night's World Cup qualifier that booked England's place in South Africa, glossing over the concerns.
...yet again so close but so far. Just like his time with Spurs Big Martin Jol's Hamburg just fell short of making the UEFA Cup final with another refereeing howler to add to UEFAs list.
...no it's Fabio, but you'd struggle to tell. He might have stopped the England players abusing hotel staff and guests but on the pitch the usual suspects are putting in the same old displays.
...changed for England under Fabio, that team that beat a very limited and uninterested Slovakia would look pretty much the same under McClown, except they wouldn't be wearing what looks like a school PE kit.
...it all depends on what Capello does tonight. Will he hand Beckham another cap making the England record meaningless and will he pick a meaningless team to face Spain.
...to management now. After the media hype over the number of his ex-players in management fans of two sides desperately wanted Sam Allardyce to replace the brightest of Fergie's stars.
...one nil to the Shpurs. Shorry I've gone all, how do you shaay, Shteeve McClown after Shpurs one nil away victory over NEC Nijmegen in the UEFA Cup.
...win in Zagreb. As England stuff Croatia 4-1 to become the first side to beat the hosts on their own patch in a competitive game. Now will Capello take the obvious points from this game or will it be his Munich?
...fun day out in Andorra? Capello and his team weren't on the end of the vitriol hurled at McClown's lot but they weren't exactly much better and came away with a worse result to open qualifying for South Africa 2010.
...just a few more to go. It's goobye and good riddance to that bumbling buffoon Brian Barwick the man who told us the McClown was his first choice as England manager.
