Lamps can be the ‘new’ Spe­cial One but Blues must show pa­tience

is leav­ing New­cas­tle a truly damn­ing

the club’s in­dict­ment of

con­sid­er­ing own­er­ship. But

shown the love and af­fec­tion

club’s fans, it for him by the

sur­pris­ing is still slightly

them he did not re­ward with one more

year. UN­DER­STAND­ABLE ac­claim for Eng­land brush­ing Nor­way aside in the women’s World Cup quar­ter-fi­nal, but there needs to be con­sid­er­able improvemen­t if they are take a fur­ther step.

The stan­dard of their pass­ing and their re­ten­tion of pos­ses­sion was av­er­age, to say the least.

If they are as sloppy against the USA on Tues­day, they will be pun­ished.

THE more TV au­di­ences roll up for its cov­er­age of the women’s World Cup, the more the BBC must re­gret not mak­ing a fist of com­pet­ing for sports rights.

When Sky came along, the BBC should have set up a ded­i­cated sports chan­nel. That horse has bolted and the only hope now is that sports such as cricket see the num­bers the Lionesses are get­ting and don’t sell to the high­est bid­der.

@tonidug­gan “World Cup semi­fi­nal … AGAIN!!! Wow!! Amaz­ing from all the team … Come on Eng­land­ddddd @Lionesses”

Eng­land star cap­tures the grow­ing ex­cite­ment over the Lionesses at the World Cup. Next stop, the mighty USA.

As Toni says… come on Eng­land. SO, the up­com­ing Premier League sea­son looks like be­ing David Silva’s last.

En­joy it while you can.

I could fill a hun­dred pages on why he is so good, but suf­fice to say, David Silva

(right) plays foot­ball as foot­ball should be played. Enough said.
