I am aware of them, they do no exicte, impress or have any relevance to the England job.

We have seen successful managers with trophy laden cv's mean f all.

England are a team of good inviduals who just cant seem to play together. They do not need a master tactician, they do not need someone who cant speak English, and they do not need someone whos win ratio is up there level peg with his loss ratio and plays 11 men behind the ball always, with an ethos of dont try and win, just try not to lose, and has won the league with teams that historically always do win the leauge or therebaouts in Z list european leagues.

Well given several members of the actual team back Harry and none have backed Roy embarrassingly enough, except a tame Gerrard interview, then I think the team has spoken.
exactly, that's why they need Roy.

btw, if you hadn't noticed most of this england squad are failures, they need clearing out. it doesn't matter a jot what they think or who they support. of course they like harry, they can get a lie in in the morning

Re: Woy Hodgson England Manager

So we have the English speaking Capello.

Lets see if the players perform for him.

I didnt expect much from the Euros anyway, but was excited to watch should Harry have taken charge.

Not sure I feel that way now. I suspect it will rather drab

What? A tactician, who likes to study detail, run drills, spend much time on discussing tactics and positioning rather than practicing playing, and who doesnt believe in team unity and enjoyment?

I cant see it going down well, but I am open to surprises.

I thought they were looking for Guardiola for this role... it would have been a good one.

Re: Woy Hodgson England Manager

A good source in Manchester told me that Rednapp was most definitely not the 1st choice of 2 of the FA Panel:

Trevor Brooking hates Rednapp due to the way his good mate Billy Bonds was treated when Bonds was ditched at West Ham
The other FA guy is extremely suspicious of Rednapp's "dodgy" nature.

Personally I think Hodgson is the right choice.

He took (let's be honest) average players in Switzerland and made the World Cup 1/4 Finals and Euro 2006. How good is that? I call that fantastic.

Improving average players makes him absolutely ideal for the England job or at least it will be until John Terry selects the team for Hodgson

We have 3 games in Ukraine. Anything more will be a bonus.
France? Tricky. Sweden? Not a good record against them
Ukraine - the hosts at home in the last game? Errm, not looking good!

I just want to see some EXCITEMENT in an England match for a change - even a performance akin to Chelsea at Barca I would class as exciting, not beautiful, but unmissable tension.

Re: Woy Hodgson England Manager

Big decisions for Roy:

Does he take Rooney? I believe he has already said he would be. But should he?

Does Terry stay in the team?

Does he take Lampard and Gerrard? Either or, both, or none?

capello is one of the most successful european club managers of recent times. he failed as england manager.

Roy has international experience, his club record is more patchy than Capello's.

In style and in their records and in personality they are quite different, I am surprised you cannot see this.

let me spell it out for you:

1. rooney will go to the finals

2. terry will be picked unless he is put in prison for his racist comments or if he loses form

3. lampard versus gerrard is a media creation. if they're both picked they'll play, if not they won't.

Re: Woy Hodgson England Manager

it really doesn't matter who is englands manager, for as long as I can remember they have always all done the same thing, pick the 'top' players everyone expects them to pick, allow them to do whatever the hell they like, let them all try to be the hero instead of actually play as a team.

I would love to see a team from say league 1 or 2 take on the england team and see what happens

Re: Woy Hodgson England Manager

I agree with this comment, that is why I want Roy. He comes cheap and has a goodish but not great record. I don't expect too much from Roy but at least he is not just trying to get as much money out of the FA. Redknapp is a shyster and will only fail. At least if Roy fails he will do it on a low salary

He's got a 4 year contract. I doubt he'll last past the Brazil World cup in which case he'll be paid 4 years for working 2. Hardly cheap

yes, we know this but it will be way way cheaper than redknapp plus the FA would have had to buy out redknapp from his contract and Levy is another shark

Re: Woy Hodgson England Manager

True. I just don't get after the FA are supposed to be saving money they give a 60+ year old who let's face it will never walk away from the job a 4 year contract when it is a high possibility that he'll be sacked within 2

Re: Woy Hodgson England Manager

according to the Mail, harry redknapp

I don't know what Roy is earning but you can be sure it is a fraction of what harry and levy would have asked.

1. Well I think Rooney should go too

2. Terry shouldnt be picked, whether in prison or not. He is shite.

3. Not really a media creation. My point was not can they play together. But should they be in the squad. I am of the opinion neither should, but Gerrard could scrape it. But starting 11, neither.
