Randy Lerner

With last summer's World Cup now thankfully a distant memory, and England again coming out underwhelming nearlies (you know, just for a change), we can all get back to our wives and children safe in the knowledge that we're guaranteed to win the next one. Guaranteed.

As always, the World Cup struck up a fever upon the nation like some sort of positive 'flu, the symptoms of which included waving St George's crosses about like lunatics and an unbreakable belief that World Cup glory is an inevitability.

It is in this vein of ill-advised enthusiasm that we present the BFOF sports section. "Come on England!"
