    @WornCleat and daughter somewhere in Surrey.

    Been too long Clive. And always a pleasure

    Lovely to see you. Poor Louisa was really suffering with a shoulder injury which hurt when descending. I had not appreciated that Box Hill to our bail point of Epsom Station is one long descent.

    Not really into such speculation.

    He may close the gap between the supporters and the club. That would be a start.

    Sarri took the club backwards on the pitch and far backwards off the pitch.

    The question included “better than a third place finish”. The answer is not missing out on second by a chasm. That is, I am confident, a valid point.

    In the meantime, Fat Frank is in talks with Derby about a contract extension.

    Genuine question: do you expect better than a third place finish and a trophy next season?

    Football played with belief and passion. Football played with the same commitment that supporters have. Football played with a desire to win.

    We finished 20-30 points behind the top two. Almost closer to relegated clubs. The only reason we were third is that Arsenal, Tottenham and ManU screwed up.

    We lost 4-0 to Bournemouth and 6-0 to City. We eere 2-0 down in a cup game to Man U with 10 minutes to go and we substituted a right back for a right back. We gave up.

    We played better more enjoyable football in Div 2 in the early 1980s.

    Juve are paying the £5m, not Chelsea

    Unlikely. Chelsea are relieved from their contractual obligations (Conte cost £9 million to get rid of) and off loading a failed manager. Why would Juventus pay to take on a fag munching retired bank manager. No. Chelsea are paying them to take him off their hands. Best deal of the summer.

    Sarri to Juventus is costing £5 million in compensation. And once Chelsea have paid that they are, apparently, paying Derby a further £4 million for Fat Frank.

    I think that it shows the pace of development of the women's game is not uniform. I also believe that this will settle down as the game becomes more widespread, more money comes into it and standards improve across the board.

    Congratulations to England for their first trophy since 1966. The Third Place Play-Off Trophy is something we will all remember for years to come. Not just the winning of it but the style of the win.

    Pity the Honours List came out just before the game or, I am sure, we would have a number of new knights bending the knee. Come the New Year, we will be taking about Sir Harry Kane.
