...he wasn't up to the job. I do hope the F.A. remember that after watching England struggle in their nil, nil draw with Slovenia.
...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.
...the fans what they can and cannot say? It seems to work, gives the crowd a lift which in turn gives the team a lift for the home game against Maribor in the Europa League.
...have the players? We know Andre Villas Boas' affinity with the Europa League, it's part of what got him noticed, and we know the fans want to see a Spurs' captain lifting a trophy at the end of a campaign but are the players bothered? They don't look it.
..aren't we. I mean after stuffing the might of Slovenia a whole one nothing, who is there now good enough to stop England from going all the way and lifting the trophy?
...it's a knockout. There's a couple of quotes that come to mind about not learning the lessons from history and repeating mistakes over and over again as Gerrard and Lampard are set to play together for the 61st time for England.
...complacency. No matter how bad Fabio's favourites play and how well those coming off the bench perform we all know who will be the first choice which creates nothing but complacency.
