What a dreadful commentary by Glen. Great footballer in his day, but can't manage or commentate. Danny Baker has named him Glen Ploddle on twitter. :-) 

The man is a twat.

Ah, I see, they won't be able to ban you for using the word twat because your defence will be that you meant taut. Or tent. Or test. Or something like those. You wily old fox.

As much as I'm not a fan of Hoddle it isn't true that he can't manage.

He was a decent club manager and as England manager he had them playing very decent expansive football.   Probably the best England have looked since Robson was in charge.

Shame he messed it up with his rather silly views.  Which I think are in line with Tarne''s if I'm not mistaken.

Overrated player - wandering around in midfield only occasionally getting involved when he'd spray a thirty yard pass that occasionally reached a team mate. 

Rubbish manager - took over after England's best Euro performance, exciting new players added to that team. He had the best opportunity of any England manager Fall in his lap despite having no managerial record of note. Totally mishandled man-management and England's been on a steady decline ever since. 

Twenty year media career saying nothing is actually a step up from there.

I was watching the grass grow and becoming frustrated until someone told me it was artificial ! Hoddle is an expert at stating the bleeding obvious nothing more. I am a better summariser of the evenings game than him !      In fact I'll have a bash   " a bunch of overpaid millionaires with little talent and no motivation masquerading as an international football team .. CRAP ".
