Roy Hodgson to use World Cup friendlies to experiment with Irishman in bar joke

England manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed he will use the friendly matches in the run up to the World Cup next summer to give chances to other fringe jokes in his repertoire.

With World Cup qualification now confirmed, Hodgson said it was now the time to give a chance to other jokes on the periphery of his routine, to see if they could be relied upon in the heat of Brazil.

He told reporters, “The jokes I’ve used in qualification have served me well, but there’s little more I can learn about them.”

“Now is the time to experiment and try some younger jokes and find out if their ready.”

“I’ve got a great joke about a penis transplant using a baby elephant’s trunk, and I’m excited to see what it can do.”

Hodgson to give new jokes a chance

There has been clamour for Hodgson to call-up the new joke about Cadbury’s oriental chocolate bar, and Hodgson insisted age was no barrier to a call up.

The England manager explained, “It’s a new joke, for sure, but if it’s good enough then it’s old enough.”

“But that works the other way too – I’ve got a great Jimmy Tarbuck joke from 1968 that I’m not afraid to use if the circumstances call for it.”

“The are still a few positions to play for, and hopefully during the friendlies a few one-liners will step up and leave me with no choice but give them a place on the plane to Brazil.”

“It’s all to play for.”
