Hodgson's not for turning.

and has the backing of Greg Dyke

and Lonan3.

 

#56. "...probably the only man up to the job of leading England at the moment."

 

So that's at least 2 more years of purgatory. I wonder if the FA kept their receipt?

I don't think the manager is a big deal in this and I doubt that anyone could have done any better. Problem is England are not very good and besides that, the players are too comfortable, too highly paid, would rather be on the beach and are just not hungry enough to perform in internationals. There isn't enough pride in the shirt or the country.

What do the French team do to succeed that the English don't (apart from having a goal fest)?

 

An interesting question. I wonder if a lack of work abroad is to blame for England's lack of comparative success. Compare the clubs where the French squad play. And then the English. Amazing really.
