Stuart Pearce had to go but it certainly wasn’t…

Roy really should have had a brolly in…

…Poland on Tuesday night. After all if he’s going to act the part of McClown he might as well dress the part.

Uninspiring and lucky with that luck running […] ...read this Blog post →

Meet Roy Hodgson, is he the same as…
