cool :) he was a great commentator ... he had a distinctive voice and i listened to his commentaries many times on the radio back in the day. it was a time when it was all about listening to the radio...no live tv games or anything like that. that's cool mate.

Looks like Frank Lampard may become the new Derby manager.. Lampard is apparently a Rangers fan... I wonder if Gerrard and Lampard will lock horns pre-season :P

Unfortunately they've crashed out only two years after Scotland.

I've been saying all along that they're not good enough to justify the hype.

One decent result against a chaotic Panama and everyone thinks it's 1966 again. Tunisia wasn't a convincing win, Colombia went to penalties, Sweden had their fair share of chances too. Then we lost to Belgium, twice.

I enjoyed the ride for as long as it lasted, but the notion that England is truly World class seems a bit wide of the mark to me. Still, it's a step up from 2014 when we scored one point in the qualifying round, so I guess it's all going in the right direction.
