...early. More to the point it should put us England fans out of our misery and we can get on and enjoy the competition without the bloated failures clogging up the rest of the World Cup.
...good. But with that England performance to go with the 2-0 loss to Chile you might as well give up.
...watching that game with a stinking cold. Well, hell that just ramped up the misery. England again put at least 4 past Moldova which should tell that country it's time to pack it in.
...in charge. There'd be as much if not a better chance of England winning the 2022 World Cup than with Greg Dyke if yesterday's showing is anything to go by. Yeah! Rat fans!!!
...all his fault. He did a pretty good job for a tactically limited manager who was extremely restricted by the limited way English football, footballers and top flight managers look down at the Under-21 set up.
..'em. A little over a week away from a year before football crazy Brazil host their first World Cup tournament in 64 years and the poor old dears can't even beat England.
...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.
...they're 18th in the FIFA rankings. But losing to this England side, even in a friendly in which they didn't look bothered, surely indicates that ranking is close to being right.
...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 […]
...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.
...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.
...more? From the squad he chose to the first starting lineup he put out to the formation they lined up in to the changes he made and the performance they put on in beating Norway one nil he's doing his best to shout 'this is all I've got'.
