..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.
...under the messiah Roy. A rather standard response that every is great and we can forget the past after another poor performance sees England beat a hopeless Swiss side in what should be their toughest Euro qualifier.
...impending failure. There's new faces, exciting prospects, but it's the same old dried up leader and the same old inadequacies that saw them scrape past an even younger and even worse Norwegian side in front of one man and his dog.
...analysing that game on TV. In another dimwitted, insipid performance losing 3-1 at home to Benfica in the last 16 of the Europa League, Spurs put in a Jenasesque performance.
...win. A Tweet went out last night shortly after Spurs had lost 4-1 in the second leg of their last 16 Europa League tie away at Inter Milan, to draw 4-4 on aggregate and go through on away goals.
...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.
...back. After England's latest one nil, uninspiring, victory if they are going to play like Switzerland they should at least look like Switzerland.
...disguise? England go overboard celebrating their lucky 1-0 victory over Spain in a friendly like the Jocks did back in 1967.
...tired. Yet again the tired old excuse is dug up by an England manager who has just witnessed another inept display by players he has picked as England struggle to draw with Switzerland in the Euro 2012 qualifier.
...against you in an international? It just highlights was a simple chance to qualify Fabio was handed and get everyone back up into a frenzy of belief. But he keeps making those odd selections.
...boots, after that. England actually manage to beat a fourth rate side at home in their opening qualification game for Euro 2012. Meet the new qualification campaign, same as the old qualification campaign.
...Hissing Sid. The media got their target as cool, calm, collected Fabio folded under the pressure and stripped one scumbag of the armband to give it to another scumbag.
...oh Wien. So unlike the last Euros this time the best team throughout the tournament picked up the trophy.
...they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? Philippe Senderos. Which kind of, bar a couple of games, describes Euro 2008 so far.
