    Its about time that the FA realised that club football and international football is different. Nice to see them appoint someone who has managed an international team before and he did particularly well. I dont see it as a step up, its just different to manage a national team so I dont accept the argument that if he failed at Liverpool how the hell is managing England.

    By the way I dont think he failed at Liverpool more like he was ousted before he a had a chance to make a difference.
    I agree I would rather have hime than Arrrry any day. As I was saying in another discussion he took a lot of unreasonable flak during his time at Liverpool yes he did make mistakes but it was not all his fault. The problem at Liverpool is that they are that far behind Man Utd in everything the job is 10 times tougher just like it was at Man Utd when Liverpool were dominating.

    Re: Roy for England.

    I'm a big Hodgson fan after what he did for Fulham and to be honest I hope he can do a similar job with England. Either way I'm off to Ladbrokes tomorrow to collect on my bet!

    I think that's media lead.
    Who's to say which manager will be successful on the International stage? When Greece won the Euros, was their manager at the time lauded as a top class international manager? Otto Rehhagel - I doubt it!! But, he got them organised and they won the tournament.

    I don't think the manager of England is the problem, it's the players. I pretty much gave up on England after I watched them stroll round the park against Germany in 2010. Utterly embarrassing. None of them cared as they had nothing to play for. For the top players the CL is the pinnacle, not England and it showed.

    I wish Roy all the best but with all the tactical accumen in the world, he needs to get the players proud to play for England before we can ever even think about being successful again.

    Nailed it right there .. primadonnas , & unwarranted primadonnas at that....


    Some quotes from Stephen Gerrard on Sky news sports pages today ....

    Gerrard praises Hodgson
    Steven Gerrard has reiterated his belief that Roy Hodgson is a good choice as England boss, praising his loyalty and honesty

    Roy's a good manager. I've worked with him before. I think he took the Liverpool job at the wrong time but my opinion of Roy hasn't changed before he got the job, whilst he had the job and after it

    He was very good tactically; very thorough. A great guy; very loyal and honest with the players and that's all we'd ask from him..

    Honest apraisal ? Good manager , good tacticaly . very thorough , loyal and honest !!! if so what happened at his time there ? or is it a big bum lick to be captain for the euros ?
    Thoughts ?

    Ship out the oldies and give the likes of Oxlaide-Chamberlain and that kid from Tottenham (who's name escapes me at this exact moment) a chance. Show them that it's an honour to wear the 3 Lions.

    Re: Roy for England.

    Was reminded last night why Roy is a better choice over 'Arry...

    Now don't get me wrong 'Arry is a diamond geezer and a right proper manager... Problem is the 'package' you get with him... That JJ character is a right total penis...

    Also, the front page of The Sun yesterday was pretty pathetic.
