BTW, I don't even like him. He's no Figo. But if you're going to say he doesn't perform when it matters, I will argue against it. You wont see me arguing against people criticising his attitude though, his antics leave a lot to be desired. I wish he would just shut the fuck up and play football.

His header in the qf against roma was one of the best you will ever see, gel or no gel.

I've already got Setanta on for this - fuck it, it's only $16 a month and I'm not that poor

Hodgson is the wrong manager to control the rampant egos and general fuckwittery of the England squad - he failed with a similar squadful at Liverpool

there's usually a darkhorse team at Euros - hoping it's Ireland

Nah I think hodgeson is good. Liverpool gave him fuck all set him up to fail. I like him and think he couldn't give two fucks about egos

Feel bad for the way the press are treating him just cause their mate 'arry didn't get it.

not that bad really... all he had to do was add a left back & some wingers and we should have at least been fighting for a top half finish, he had us heading for the championship...

after kenny took over we had the 2nd best form in the league

then he went and signed a bunch of nobodies and now we have regressed

They weren't his players though and half of them wanted out before Roy even took over.

He did better than Kenny.

cmon that is just ridiculous. he certainly did not. we were seriously threatened with relegation when hodgson was in charge. so far i've felt safe that my team will not be playing in the championship next season under kenny

nah not really, we weren't that bad at the start of the season. our form since the start of the year however is a different story.

point is, kenny did better with those players than hodgson. then he went and made some truly awful signings that have set us back years. only the fa cup can save him

Villa is 50/50.

Llorente has come on leaps and bounds this season under Bielsa, and Soldado would start in a lot of top-ranked national sides.

Spain's biggest concern is burnout, not Villa's fitness.

I hope PMF gets a callup for the national side. One of the standout players in the EPL this year. He at least deserves to be in the squad.

You have no fucking clue dude.

Same dude who who thought Dan Agger wasn't good enough for a place in our team. Same guy who purchased Konchesky ( gave away one of our great juniors LDV & Kačaniklić who is killing it in the process) .

He plays ugly football and is going to bomb.

I think England need to play ugly football to do well. England need to wake up and realise that they arent Brasil and will never win by playing pretty. Roys the man. imo

That means fuck all, most managers have had better years then KK. Roy had his chance, failed and got booted. England are going to play ugly and lose.

Hodgson was the logical choice (and was sounded out about the job twice in the past - contractual obligations meant he couldn't take the job).

His track record in international football includes getting the Swiss to no.3 in the Fifa rankings and losing something like three qualifiers out of forty. His domestic record in Scandanavia was tremendous in his formative years. He is well thought of at Inter after his stints there. The Liverpool job was a poisoned chalice, what with Dalglish lurking in the wings and the Yanks mk.1 eventually doing one to be replaced by Yanks mk.2.

His reputation as a thinker on the game and a tactician is in stark contrast to the charlatan at White Hart Lane, who has won fcuk all in his career and bankrupted at least two clubs along the way, with his "throw enough shit at a wall, some will stick" transfer policy. Loveable old 'Arry is a media darling and a footballing pygmy. Personally, I don't give a fuck how good a bloke Bobby Moore was, 'Arry. Show me a player that has actually improved technically under your stewardship.

Hopefully the British media will realise that, other than people who drive white vans or taxis, not many wanted the fisheyed tool to be supremo.

Hodgson will get a team playing a system that works for the players available. His appointment should see them do well in Brazil. Any expectations for Polkraine are laughable, he's got less than two weeks before he has to name his squad.

Like I give a fuck anyway, Scotland will be on their usual holidays. But Hodgson is a decent man & for his sake, I hope he has success.

No it means a fair bit actually.

He's done well with little resources due to his experience and football mind (which is exactly what England need). He wasn't given a real chance at Pool because the majority of Pool fans are gloryhunter morons with no idea about football and an inability to focus on the current/future game rather than shit that happened years ago.

It baffles me the blind faith Pool fans have for this Scarecrow headed fuckwitt. You say most managers have done better than Kenny but you still rate him over Roy. And Bateman says he is better than Hodgson even though he made some of the worst transfer signings in the history of the club.

It'll take Kenny to punch a baby in the face and nail it to the 'this is Anfield' sign to get sacked. And even then the team will wear King Kenny teeshirts in the next warm-up

Roy bombed at Pool but that doesn't automatically make him a shit manager.
