England were one of the favorites for the tournament. It was fairly unlikely that they would tank and go out in embarrassing fashion.

And it's not about a sense of entitlement for viewers. It's...

i'm sorry, but when you've got a winning team in an international sport, and it gets enough publicity, that's enough for people to start taking interest, even it's something they normally wouldn't...

England's women are the world champions, having beat Canada. An amazing accomplishment. But this was an event that should have been screened free-to-air for the entire nation on BBC or ITV, not just...

When's Michael Johnson coming back to the commentary team?

Denise and Colin tend to talk in platitudes. Paula Radcliffe is a bit better, but they've really been missing Michael's no-nonsense style...

I think she can be a commercial artist again in the UK, but it's entirely dependent on her making an impact in the US. I agree that if she thinks there's any hope of getting the pop career back on...

Ozil had a fantastic game in the final. He was one of the best players on the pitch.

And the Daily Mail propoganda against Ozil has been false as well. He's been very good in previous games as well....

That's only because Messi was so awful in the semi-finals, that not even the most creative pundits could find a way to give him credit for "carrying" the team, even if they dearly wanted to. So they...

I'm not buying all this one man team bollocks. He's a forward. His job is is to score goals. Getting goals against the likes of Iran and Switzerland does not deserve some sort of extra credit. It's...

Golden Ball is a joke. Nobody is going to take that seriously, and every football fan with half a brain will know FIFA only gave it to him to keep the Messi hype train going.

Ronaldo was injured: What was Messi's excuse?

Cristina Ronaldo didn't have a particularly good World Cup, but he was coming into the tournament carrying an injury. And he was also carrying a very, very mediocre Portugal team.

That's way too limiting. She'll never have a Hollywood career if that's the intention, because they simply don't make enough musical based films these days. And there's even less musicals made for...

I don't believe for one second Alex isn't willing to put in the effort. Alex has effectively been "gigging" since she was 12 years old, when she got beaten by Joss Stone in Star For A Night. She's...

I don't think she's deciding to do it because she's got reviews (which were better than moderate. They were impressive). It's obviously been an ambition for awhile to act, but I guess the incredible...

UK industry is crazy vengeful. I knew the story was obviously a planted PR smear job on Alex, but it's nice to hear David confirm the reasons behind it.

But yeah, Alex is screwed in this country....
