...this. With the news that the F.A. are at any moment going to announce Sam Allardyce as the new England manager I'm pointing the finger at Newcastle and Norwich.
...down. The media haven't half got their knickers in a knot about Roy Hodgson picking some youngsters in his World Cup squad, when they should be focusing on the old failures instead.
...troubles. The media have been all out over the last 24 hours looking for someone to blame over Jonathan Trott's decision to come home from the Ashes tour with stress/depression related issues.
...large. It was a bit timely that the PFA hired Reginald D. Hunter to do a bit of stand up at their little back slapping soirée and the fuss it caused as the day after the BBC showed a tribute to the late great Dave Allen.
...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.
…and those at the Lane are helping them out. There’s plenty to blame for Spurs’ latest poor performance at home and yes you can say the manager played his part but those on and off the pitch contributed more… or should that be less. Those in all lilywhite – now there’s a main problem, those […]
...returns in time. It takes two to tango and with Italy playing their part Spain's style in the final of Euro 2012, wasn't as boring as in previous matches.
...backfired. If Harry Redknapp hadn't indulge in so much Machiavellian scheming would he still be the Spurs boss or was that dramatic loss of form too much?
...?????!!! Poor old Rio Ferdinand, he took to Twitter yesterday to post that, bet he couldn't have look more like a disconsolate duck at the time. Here are those footballing reasons why he shouldn't be in the squad.
...with a damp meh. Three damp squid test series against Sri Lanka finished appropriately with rain stopping play as England yet again struggled to bowl the visitors out to win the final test.
...as Del Boy would have said to Fergie. So the two best teams in Europe met in the Champions League final at Wembley and one team was on a completely different level.
...the transfer kitty this summer. After a run down of his buys since being made manager at Spurs it doesn't make for great reading and neither does the list of players he is linked with and talks about in glowing terms.
...are you sure? How can it be an honest mistake when the linesman is supposed to know the laws of the game and is supposed to be 100% sure when making a call not just guessing about something he really didn't see.
...can't remember what. I'm sure there's something going on today, something I should be aware of. If only someone had mentioned it then I wouldn't have forgotten.
...very happy. Wait shouldn't that be the other way round? FIFA execs made Russia and Qatar happy after their names were pulled from the envelopes telling us who would host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
