'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cascarino Says Hodgson Is Doing 'Amazing' Job

Tony Cascarino, pundit for the New Football Pools says that Roy Hodgson has done an 'amazing' job at Fulham.

'If Roy Hodgson doesn`t win the Manager of the Year title this season then he should be pretty close to it. What Roy had done at the club is quite 'amazing` when you consider how close they were to relegation last season. He`s made them a very solid outfit and although they are quite predictable in the way they line up, a number of teams have struggled to handle them.

Bobby Zamora has received plenty of stick for his lack of goals but he does a good job for the side. The simple question is, are Fulham better with or without Bobby in the side and the answer is definitely when he`s in the side. Just like Emile Heskey when he was at Wigan, he didn`t score that regularly but the job he did benefited the side. I am sure his manager is more than happy with the job Zamora does for the side in terms of being disciplined and working hard when his team haven`t got the ball.

Roy got a lot of criticism for selling Jimmy Bullard in January but the fact that the team doesn`t seem to have missed him at all is testament to his decision to sell. The club got a good fee for a relatively old player and unfortunately for the Jimmy soon after his move he has suffered yet another bad injury. Manager`s have to make unpopular decisions and I don`t think anyone with argue with the sale now or the superb job Roy has done at Fulham.'

Couldn't have said it better myself. I don't think Hangeland has a chance at player of the year, but surely Roy is a real contender for manager of the year.

fat chance of Roy being gaffer of the year- it'll be Fergie! These things are not given to the true contenders!

Agree with the comments above and the article. RH deserves some recognition for what he has done, but I suspect he won't get it. Fairly easy to get manager of the year award when you've got multiple millions upon millions to spend on players compared to the job RH has done on a low (by premier league standards) budget, and to have taken us from such an awful position that the dirty one left us in to the top half of the table is just magic...
