They could yet go far, but as things stand it is still relative failure from the under-performing English at a major tournament, again. However, this is different failure and that in itself is actually a silver lining of sorts - literally just because it isn't the same as countless times before

One of the great joys of living in London and being part of the EU is that we can be spontaneous with our travel plans. On a whim, I decided that I was losing touch with the fashionista inside and a day of 'comp shopping' in Paris was essential.

The clichéd view of the French is that they are hostile towards new English words trying to migrate into their language. But this hasn't been true for quite a while now, as lovers of les smoothies (pronounced "smooty") and les wraps ("vrap") will confirm.
