England remain 7/1 shots for the 2010 World Cup but how they can be the same price as Spain is beyond me after events in Seville midweek.

Just when you think the FA Cup is dead in the water a hitherto unknown nineteen-year-old goes and scores the winning goal in the last minute of extra-time against a Liverpool side shorn of their talisman, their sulky Spanish striker but at least they still have their David Brent-lookalike manager at the helm.

The sale of Emile Heskey and Wilson Palacios and the injury to Antonio Valencia may have weakened the Wigan side that travel to Villa Park this afternoon but the Latics showed against Liverpool midweek that they remain the most resilient of sides and Steve Bruce would, alongside Martin O'Neill and David Moyes, be my choice for potential Manager Of The Year.

Local boy made good veteran singer Tony Christie visited the Doncaster Rovers training ground bedecked in Red & White this week for BBC's Football Focus which can be seen this afternoon.

I have said it before but I have vowed to seek medical help/counselling.
