IN the week when the BBC announced the return of iconic children’s programme the Clangers, the clangour of England’s advance to next summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil grew louder than the soup dragon using a megaphone pumped through speakers racked up to number 11.

SKULLDUGGERY – what a word, what a notion – and dontcha just love it? If things are to be believed there was plenty of shady shenanigans in planet sport this week allowing genuine sports fan to lap it up and critics of all things sprightly and dutiful to tut-tut-tut to their cold heart’s content.
