Euro 2012 brought on a kind of pleasant footballing dialysis. We were largely starved of Arsenal related news but the tournament acted as a valve while the toxins of 2011-12 ebbed away.

Spurs are interviewing for a manager. It's hardly a level playing field not as if the vacancy has been advertised down at the Job Centre.

As with most clubs, Cardiff City has an active and vocal fan base online, where one can find insight into the day-to-day running of the club, rumour and conjecture.

Hopes, Dreams & Reality: On England At Euro 2012

The St George flags will be hanging limply this afternoon. It was after midnight in Kiev last night when the final kick hit the back of the net and confirmed what we all probably already knew that this England side wasn't good enough to reach the semi-finals of the 2012 European Championships - but there is little sense of recrimination in the air this morning, rather an acceptance that the "lottery" of the penalty shoot-out and whether this is true or not is a matter for conjecture in itself merely served to see that justice was done.

Shortly after the resignation of Fabio Capello and the first wave of reports linking Harry Redknapp to the England job, one of Spurs' old boys was being linked with a possible return to White Hart Lane.

In fact, Jurgen Klinsmann made some positive noises about the position and while they stopped short of declaring a definite interest, it was enough for the media, who put the German's name forward as a prime candidate.

Anyone who was at the match on Saturday or who saw the events unfold on television would have been shocked by what they saw and our thoughts are clearly with Fabrice Muamba this morning.

It's hard to think or talk about football today but it's worth noting that there is talk of postponing this week's league game with Stoke, while there is also a question mark as to whether Bolton themselves will continue in this season's FA Cup.

And so the conjecture continues. No, no, not speculative tittle-tattle focused on which new wunderkind recruits are coming to the Arsenal in the January transfer window, I am talking about where we will tour next summer.

That's what will happen.

As another Premiership campaign bullets down the stretch and Manchester United goes ahead by a few horse lengths, so dribbles to closure the likely Premiership career of a peculiar one, Dimitar Berbatov.

It's almost an incredulous that a player who was last year's co-Golden Boot winner 20 in the Premiership last year to share the title with the one and only Carlos Tevez has become such an afterthought both by his manager and by the ravenous English press.
