…over again. One kick in the dying seconds couldn’t hide the fact that the same team that struggled at the Euros, struggled exactly the same way in Sam Allardyce’s first game as England manager. I had originally thought that Adam Lallana’s last ditch goal had moved Allardyce from being the new Hodgson to him being […]
...but that's all. Spurs' third league outing of the season turned into an exercise in “taking the positives” in another lifeless, drab, disappointing affair.
...can there be a better epitaph for Roy Hdosgon than his own words. The coward that is ex England manager Roy Hodgson finally turned up to be asked questions and was most put out by the fact, didn't they know he'd run away to prevent such things?
...of a beating. Well if that's not a fitting end to Roy Hodgson's tenure as England manager, losing to little Iceland in one of the most inept performances for years to exit Euro 2016, I don't know what is.
...a lot easier than Tesco. Yes we had to go with the obligatory supermarket reference to the fact England will be facing the smallest nation in the tournament, Iceland, in the last 16 of Euro 2016.
...wanted. Roy has been desperate to play Wilshere and Henderson and he finally got his wish and boy did it work a dream as England drew their final group game to finish below Wales.
...genius. Apparently we all have to be in awe of the great managerial skills of Roy Hodgson after England came from behind to beat Wales in their Euro 2016 group game.
...Roy Hodgson. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the biggest impediment to this England side is Roy Hodgson and he couldn't help himself from proving it again in England's Euro 2016 opener against Russia.
...the irony. A.K.A. Defenders? We don't need no stinkin' defenders... Roy Hodgson makes a mess of the England squad and their tactics in the last warm up game before Euro 2016 against Portugal.
...when it's obvious to everyone else. The fact that Roy Hodgson is still dithering over which striker to take to Euro 2016 shows that the biggest factor in any England failure this summer will be Roy. Can we drop him from the 23?
...or two. The build up to England's first pre-Euro warm up was basically “we're not going overboard this time round with our optimism but we're going to win it aren't we?”, Turkey might have helped with that.
...and love. While England's almost A-team shone in Germany the B-team grasped their chance with both hands, fell over, let it slip out of their grasp and threw it into the back of their own net, as they lost at home to the Dutch.
...being Roy. Roy Hodgson is currently riding high on the coattails of players he wouldn't have picked for the squad never mind started if his favourites were available.
...kid. After a man of the match performance against France for England to follow up the one against Woolwich, Dele Alli will have Daniel Levy hearing cash register noises.
...Roy probably. A lot of people got rather too excited about England's undefeated run since the World Cup debacle through qualification for Euro 2016, in a never mind the quality feel the width way.
