The only joy I got out of watching Manchester United in the 2012/2013 season was witnessing the hilarious cameo appearances of Danny Welbeck that rivalled Keith Chegwin's in the TV series Extras. Equally inept and similarly clueless, he was tolerated only because of his endearing effort.

Back behind the wheel, with my trusty giant Twix nestling in my glove compartment, ready to grant me the benison of its exquisite chocolate, caramel and biscuit melange when a sugar crisis raises its head.

While it appears Cahill and Jagielka are first-choice for Hodgson, Terry's experience and evident ability in the back four would be a welcome boost to England, especially on the back of consecutive demoralising defeats to Chile and Germany.

Sledging is not poisonous or derogatory to the game; it is actually part of what makes cricket a great game and why people love it. Sport is essentially all about winning; therefore you need to take any little opportunity to get ahead of your opponent, whether that is physical or mental.

This kind of drubbing shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone though. England start tours abysmally - India, New Zealand, The UAE and Sri-Lanka, all resulted in collapses and losses or narrow escapes. Even the 2010 opening sortie of the Australian leg of the Ashes started badly.

With Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini finally making the decision to give under-fire goalkeeper Joe Hart a place on the bench in favour of City's number two choice, Costel Pantillimon, it raised a particularly interesting question.
