Wiley has always opposed VAR .

Still now we have a precedent that the players can be called out after the half time whistle has blown to end the half.......

Surely we can call back Germany to restart the game just after the bit where Lampard scored. We can then go on to win the 2010 world cup.

Of course the Jerries as always have trialed the changes for the next world cup. This means they will have an added advantage and will have teckkies, video refs and sports lawyers in tow. They won't miss a foul.

We will have a glum looking Gareth Southgate.

I've been asked to compose our World Cup song. I've got as far as "Harry Kane, Harry Kane, riding through the glen" but I'm gonna need your help after that.

Harry Kane, Harry Kane
Running through the lines
Harry Kane, Harry Kane
He don't waste much time
Chances are he'll score
Defences can't ignore
Harry Kane, Harry Kane, Harry Kane


And if you say you've heard that in a saloon bar I shan't bloody believe you, cos it's copyright Aurelius.

Alternative, more arch ending:

Chances are he'll score
He will claim them all
Harry Kane, Harry Kane, Harry Kane

Harries goals are incessant,
Scoring is his obsession,
Practices ten times a day,
Score away, Score Away, Score Away
The HK way


To the Tune of Germ Free Adolescent

No, no, all far too convoluted for English fans

...with his band of men
feared by le Belge, loved by le monde
Harry Kane, Harry Kane, Harry Kane.

Yes, OK, it needs work. I'm Catford not Bloomsbury.

I'm an artist, I don't think it would be appropriate.

Unless you mean in the Bloomsbury sense.

Partner swapping was so rife among the Bloomsbury set that Virginia Woolf once found herself in bed with her husband.

So Wenger is going. What are the AE aspects to this? I have been advocating his removal for (I think) about six years despite my readily acknowledging that he has been the best manager, worldwide, for the last thirty years. Looking back, I think I was probably about two years premature because replacing the declining-but-still-good with the new-but-unknown-how-good is a real problem in all things.

Human beings tend to concentrate on the decline (movement) rather than the absolute (stasis). Overall we prefer stasis to movement but only until we have reason to doubt the stasis whereupon we place movement over stasis even when we have reason to doubt the movement. We're just not good in this area and AE should be coming up with some rules-of-thumb.

But why did Wenger overstay for four years? It is right and proper, and probably unavoidable, that such a commanding figure overstay for one year but 'commanding figure' syndrome kicks in -- more often applied to politics -- they are irreplaceable. It is psychiatrically probable that the individual thinks he/she is irreplaceable (even though at some level they must know they are ruining their own legacy) but the important question is why those around them seem to believe it too. By last summer for instance the only people in the world that could not see Wenger had reached the end of the road was Wenger and the Arsenal board. The very people who had most to lose from keeping him on.

Still, we must pay proper obeisance to a Great Man.
