...England. It looked like England's hosts, Montenegro, believed their own hype in last night's World Cup qualifier. All they had to do was turn up to win.
...were somewhat embarrassing. It was San Marino, Roy. You've have had more competition from Dan Marino. Celebrating like that was just pathetic as England racked up an eight nil scoreline in the World Cup qualifier.
...before that it was soft. Lip synch video of football managers and what they really say before it's edited “to sound all footbally”.
...unbeaten run under Roy Hodgson. With the help of a number of England players but also one of the best goals you'll ever see.
…Poland on Tuesday night. After all if he’s going to act the part of McClown he might as well dress the part. Just get the overwhelming sense of deja-vu and that this World Cup qualifying campaign is going the way of Steve McClaren’s doomed single campaign in charge. Uninspiring and lucky with that luck running [...]
...against San Marino. I take it rain interrupted play or was it bad light? Should San Marino be in World Cup qualifiers? Or are they value for exposing England?
...thanks. The hapless dolt of a defender has done England proud by helping remove former manager Fabio Capello and now former England captain John Terry.
...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.
...friendly in Switzerland? A half full Wankdorf Stadium in Berne suggested no. Even if the Olympics hadn't just finished there still wouldn't be much interest in this game, seeing what England should have been like at the Euros.
...the old boss? As I've posted here before I wanted Roy Hodgson to be the England boss. I've wanted it for years, since Glenn Hoddle was sacked. You know when they say be careful what you wish for...
…I though England would nick it. I never thought they would outplay Italy, I never thought they’d pass it about like they knew what they were doing, I never thought they’d look like a proper football team but I thought with the luck they had previously and if Shearer can actually figure out that it’s [...]
...when they said England would win the group? Oh that's right I've watch enough England games like this latest one the final group D game against Ukraine. It's amazing what a couple of very scrappy, lucky, wins can do for reality.
...almost England. Regardless of England's first competitive victory over Sweden, this was a match between pretty equally matched sides, turned on piece of good fortune - James Milner's yellow card.
...according to the 'experts'. The reaction from certain quarters to England hanging on for a draw in their Euro 2012 opener against a poor French team was quite predictable.
