“We survived WW2 so a no-deal Brexit will be a doddle.” I’m hearing this a lot now. The thing is, most people who say that weren’t even born during WW2. And then there’s the small matter of the millions of people who were killed during WW2, who didn’t, er, survive WW2.

Also, the England fans and especially pundits/journalists who like to say the Nations League is incomprehensible, rather than try to understand at least the basics of it, now have the simplest possible set of consequences from England vs Croatia in the group’s final game. Lovely.

They were worse than those stats suggest. We’re getting to Northern Ireland levels 10 years ago under Martin O’Neill

And congratulations to Finland, topping a group they were expected to finish third and now due to be facing teams potentially as good as Germany. God, the Nations League is brilliant, isn’t it?

With all due respect, that’s an insult to fairy tales even in a football context.

Were the Republic of Ireland as bad as the stats would suggest? Northern Ireland are half-decent and have an excellent manager who’s working wonders with them, but they’re rarely dominant - yet, away from home, they had 58% possession, more clear-cut chances and 11 corners to 3.

I can and I can’t. On the one hand, he’s an underrated player who has already shown what he can do (two AFC Player of the Year awards, two FA Cup Final winners, Euro 2016 Team of the Tournament...). On the other, if he’s not essential to Emery’s plan then don’t spend the wages.

I like it. Even though it reminds me of a snail and I hate snails.

Out of interest, did you mention PSG's women's team last season? I only just discovered this myself, to be fair – I'm not suggesting it's an oversight if you didn't. But this is bonkers from Lyon, even by their standards.

Fine effort, tbf. Have there even been more than 10? Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception, The Dark Knight Returns, Interstellar, Dunkirk... that's it, isn't it? So he had to name Nolan's whole back catalogue? Including Following?!

Boris Johnson: constantly pissing into the tent, then deciding he doesn't want to be in charge of a pissy tent.
