Good thing to come from Eng­land exit is end to Roy

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS... -

As an English­man I feel com­pelled to write in to­day af­ter watch­ing our team lose to a coun­try with a pop­u­la­tion of 330k peo­ple. Take noth­ing away from Ice­land, they played well, as a team and with good spirit. I ac­tu­ally feel a bit sorry for the Eng­land play­ers for once as I truly be­lieve they could play well if con­ti­nu­ity was there. What I can­not ac­cept is our bungling FA pick­ing a man­ager that no English­man wanted in the first place (Harry was the man) and have to cringe through four years of know­ing that this day was com­ing. Woy as we un­fondly call him, picked the team to go to France, to the dis­may of most know­ing who he didn’t pick, then he picked the for­ma­tion to play them in and then he fool­ishly con­tin­ued with un­der par play­ers. He is de­void of any tech­ni­cal abil­ity and this showed in our play­ers. A team is called a team for a rea­son. Ice­land on the other hand didn’t have the lux­ury of a big squad but they have played as a team from day one in the Eu­ros. I have sup­ported Eng­land, Wales, Ireland and Rep Ireland all through and am now firmly hop­ing Wales can con­tinue, no sour grapes from me. I as a pas­sion­ate Eng­land fan, am de­lighted we are out be­cause we got the big­gest re­sult of all, no more Woy Hodg­son. Hope­fully the new man­ager will get the best out of this po­ten­tially good crop. Born again Welsh­man UAE
