So England have done it, qualifying for the World Cup in Brazil with a nail biting victory over Poland. No matter that the clown Szczesny played like Jan Tomaszewski, England were too strong going forward and were water tight at the back. Even Joe Hart couldn't throw this one away!
Polish fans with long enough memories will be rueing the failure of Woy Hodgson to select a Leeds man at the heart of the defence. If only, if only, there was a Norman Hunter to stand on the ball on the touch line, thereby allowing Poland to break away and score.
Mind you, the Poles can't blame Woy. Who in the present Leeds squad could get anywhere near an England team? Well actually that's unfair, half a dozen probably qualify for the Vets team!
Meanwhile, Woy has achieved what the so called "great" Don Revie couldn't achieve. He has guided the England team through to the finals of a major international tournament.
And a decent looking team is suddenly emerging. Whisper it quietly, but if Hart can recover his form, we might do rather well. Assuming Gerrard isn't tempted into a jewellery heist of course!
