The Football Association says it has been given permission to speak to West Bromwich Albion manager Roy Hodgson about turning an average England side into a team capable of doing what the media expects.
The decision has sparked fury amongst football fans who have convinced themselves that England’s national team are world-beaters despite them being a bit shit.
“Apart from 2 Swedish football championships, 8 Swedish Cups,2 UEFA Cup finals, a Danish Superliga, a Danish Super cup, taking Finland to their highest ever FIFA ranking, guiding Switzerland to 3rd in the FIFA rankings and to their first European Championship in 36 years, what has Hodgson ever done?” enquired one fan of being hugely unrealistic.
“Hodgson may be English, but he can’t even pronounce his own name properly.”
Hodgson for England
With the FA insisting that Hodgson is the only manager that they’ve approached, England fans have been left perplexed that Harry Redknapp has been overlooked.
“Surely Harry is the right man to take England forward,” insisted one bemused fan.
“You only have to look at the clubs he’s managed and what he’s achieved.”
“Okay, his only trophy is an FA Cup that he won with Portsmouth, but there’s more to his achievements than that.”
“It’s all about laying the foundations for the future.”
“I mean ,you only have to look at where Portsmouth are now.”
