I hope Roberto Martinez follows Brendan Rodgers in steering clear of such a poisoned chalice. Dalglish has lumbered his successor with an expensively-assembled set of overrated footballers and a board who will be reluctant to pay the price to rectify a massive mistake. AND
of all the people to fail to notice that Liverpool have been rubbish all season, I wouldn’t have backed it to be Hodgson.
Hodgson appears to believe that Liverpool can win the Euros for England. I’m shocked that he didn’t take Jamie Carragher as well as Glen Johnson (rubbish, can’t defend) and Stewart Downing (rubbish, can’t attack).
Looking at the squad and the nonscoring strike force Hodgson appears to be hoping for two 0-0 draws and a Wayne Rooney-inspired win in the final group game.
I’d have picked as many Chelsea players as possible and hoped some of their luck would rub off. The worst Champions League winners in history might even become the second worst winners of the Euros after Greece. IDID
enjoy listening to Norwich City fans clamouring for Grant Holt’s inclusion in the England squad. Why would Hodgson pick a 31 year-old carthorse when he can pick a 23 year-old carthorse?
A lively little debate between me and some biased Canaries on Twitter broke out just hours before Holt handed in a transfer request thus proving why you should be careful what you wish for.
Holt was probably aware of thousands of supporters demanding England recognition for their hero and thus blamed the fact that he was at too small a club for it to happen. MIXED
feelings about West Ham’s Championship play-off win. It would have been fun to watch Sam Allardyce and his hoof-ballers failing at the final hurdle. It would have been lovely to see obnoxious Kevin Nolan and arrogant Ricardo Vaz Te crying on the Wembley turf.
But I won’t miss hosting the arrogant Hammers players and fans plus Posh have more chance of getting a win against Blackpool than they do against Allardyce’s over-paid prima donnas.
THE WORST CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WINNERS IN HISTORY: That’s Chelsea.
