Outside the Box – Football on TV: Adrian Chiles and The FA Cup try, and ultimately fail to make the Wimbledons common

Chelsea: Who’ll Take Over From Grant?

Three moments from Avram Grant’s eight months at Chelsea stand out. The first was the sight of him a passive by-stander as John Terry gave the motivational talk to the team ahead of extra-time against Tottenham in the League Cup final, the second was the crowd telling him that he didn’t know what he...
