You remember it wrong.

The Arsenal draw was very unlucky; we played very well and got done by a last minute equaliser.

The Man City defeat was a drubbing, pure and simple.

In the Utd game we were 2 down before levelling only to be done by Berbatov's late goal to clinch his hat trick.
Liverpool fans were actually very fair on him and praised the spirit to get back into it before succumbing late on.


As for any other manager doing the same...
later that very same season we drew away at Arsenal, humped City 3-0 and beat Utd 3-1...so, to sum up, yes it's fair to say another manager could get better results in those fixtures.

Mr A. You're missing a lot of points here. Hodgson had us 15th for the first half of the season. Kenny came in and with almost exactly the same squad, had us 2nd best in the league from the second half of the season. Quite an improvement Im sure you'd agree?

The fact he then proceeded to mess that squad up and buy a load of over priced dross doesn't change the fact he did infinitely better than Hodgson did. Just because Kenny isn't doing wellst the min, doesnt change the fact Hodgson was atrocious.

2 wrongs and all that.

Dalglish's failings in a lot of Liverpool fans' eyes is not just carrying on the form of last season. We played great football, had some very good results and instead of building on that he spent the summer signing players aimed at putting the ball on Carroll's head. Deeply flawed and, cup success apart, has led to failure. The only thing he could do to make it worse would be to sign Konchesky and Poulsen and identify Carlton Cole as the answer to our goalscoring problems.

I think it is best that national sides have managers who are of that nationality -- surely, it's the whole point of international football, that both the players and the coach are representing their own nation? For the very small footballer nations, maybe exceptions are required. It's not like we can go and get Messi to play upfront; likewise, we should pick the best English coach available.

That being said, if it really doesn't matter about nationality, then I'd have picked Benitez -- a good cup manager and a tactician who could get a team set-up to beat technically superior sides.

Sorry if this offends anybody's sensibilities, but I personally believe that England are quite simply a crap, over-rated team, that's been hyped-up beyond all recognition by the British media, in the same way that the Premier League has.

The fact that one of the best managers in the world, Capello, couldn't get us a trophy - says it all. English fans are now generally blinded by this hype, brainwashed into believing that England has the best league in the world, and one of the best teams in the world. Brainwashed. Results don't lie, and we haven't even made a final for 46 years. In my opinion, there's not a manager alive who could turn the current England team of mediocre players into tournament winners.

IMO, whoever we pick is doomed to fail, so it's just a case of choosing the manner in which you'd like to fail. Stuart Pearce failed horribly with Nottingham Forest and the Under-21s. Surely can only be a joke contender. Harry is popular, but has no record of winning(also spends tonnes of cash and bankrupts clubs along the way). Hodgson with by far the best record of success in terms of winning things and big-club/international experience, but unpopular.

But does it really matter who they pick? The end result will be the same. Time everybody unplugged themselves from the 'England are the best' matrix.

PS.
For those betting on this, don't forget that when Cloughie failed to get the job (despite being the nation's choice), the F.A. chose on that occasion to give it to somebody who wasn't even one of the three managers they'd interviewed for the job (instead they gave it Ron Greenwood). So don't believe everything you see or read.

How much do we think Daniel Levy wanted for Redknapp?
Report betting man April 30, 2012 12:57 AM BST
I think Levy would have wanted a fortune - probably asked for 12 maybe got 8 million. Harry's wages probably would have been 4 mil, Hodgson they will probably give 2.5 million so FA saving a fortune for what is a marginal choice. I think the price has to be a factor and all in decision is correct but he'll need to get the key players onside and hit the ground running.

The other theory is they are using this as a bargaining position so that if they do decide on Redknapp, Levy can't hold them to ransom. I think there could still be some "twists and turns" before the FA make an announcement.

h-bomb's post is pretty much spot on.This England squad is barely in the world's top 16 and,technically and talent wise,i dont think they're in the worlds top 32.Forget rankings and the ludicrously overhyped premier league nonsense,just remember the last time you saw England play whether it was against Spain,Wales,whoever and just remember how bad they are.Wales were made to look like Barcelona against them at Wembley!!!

The FA know this and Hodgson is the perfect choice to throw to the wolves when the very realistic possibility of failure to get out of their group in the Euros becomes reality.England reaching the quarters of any big tournament,given the current squad,would be a monumental effort,imo.

As for Roy,yes i know he made mistakes at Liverpool,failed to understand just what an unbelievably big club it was in terms of expectations(an away win against Bolton is NOT a great result in the clubs history Roy!!) but i felt he was never really given a chance by us fans or senior players at the club.He comes across as a decent man and good luck to him despite the fact it's inevitably going to end in tears.

Correct. A bad manager can make a bigger mess up of things but an outstanding manager can only do so much.

Given the structure of the National Game and how it is dissipated by the domestic game means that the National Manager (whoever it is)has no chance of making any sort of impression. Stating the bleedin obvious but there it is.

Aye. Some of the apologists for him on here need to man up and admit they were talking utter crap!

Got to agree with Charwell - I'll gan first.

Had he not picked Clyne and Hendo against Slovakia, and Sturridge against Iceland we'd have won the trophy.
