...and love. While England's almost A-team shone in Germany the B-team grasped their chance with both hands, fell over, let it slip out of their grasp and threw it into the back of their own net, as they lost at home to the Dutch.
...being Roy. Roy Hodgson is currently riding high on the coattails of players he wouldn't have picked for the squad never mind started if his favourites were available.
...kid. After a man of the match performance against France for England to follow up the one against Woolwich, Dele Alli will have Daniel Levy hearing cash register noises.
...Roy probably. A lot of people got rather too excited about England's undefeated run since the World Cup debacle through qualification for Euro 2016, in a never mind the quality feel the width way.
...ends. Roy Hodgson's England completed their 100% run through Euro 2016 qualifying with a three nil victory over the might of Lithuania.
...count. Looking at the scores out of ten each England player got in their Euro 2016, dead rubber, qualifier against Estonia being rubbish counts for nothing if you score.
..penalties. In his attempt to surpass Bobby Charlton as record goal scorer for England, Wayne Rooney had to be handed the easiest way to do so with a couple of penalties, that sum him up these days.
...leaders. How's that for a positive spin on another mediocre Spurs performance to start the season as they draw away to Leicester City.
...the results. It is after all a result based business and that's what Roy's England managed against Slovenia to go unbeaten in qualification in the season after that miserable World Cup.
...flashbacks. Roy Hodgson went wild and crazy with his experimental team selection for England's friendly against Italy and somehow came up with a side duller than usual.
...scripts. After Harry Kane scored his first senior goal for England 79 seconds into his début, after three touches, you wonder who writing his scripts, but you know it ain't Roy.
...Wembley. That's about all you can say about Spurs' one nil victory over Sheffield United in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final.
...again. The Jocks are consoling themselves that the game against the Auld Enemy didn't count for anything, it's the Euros that really matter, but it doesn't half make them look bad being outclassed and beaten by Roy's mob.
...rubbish”. That was the plaintive cry from one viewer as the Wembley crowd sang their delight at another insipid performance by England as they won yet another Euro 2016 qualifier, this time over Slovenia.
...has none. England's latest two Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marin and Estonia show Roy's diamond is a bit of overpriced paste tat.
