Fulham - Hodgson - Europe & Sacked!

There`s a gut wrenching quote from Roy Hodgson that`s published in all the tabloids this morning.

In it Roy talks about the last time he was in a position whereby Europe dominates the agenda.

It came during his time at Blackburn Rovers, in 1998, and eventually got him the sack, let`s let Roy explain,

"When I went to Blackburn we finished sixth and got into Europe."

"I remember running round Ewood Park celebrating in front of 28,000 people but it didn`t help me the following season when we were at the bottom at Christmas and I got sacked."


Let`s hope lightning doesn`t strike twice then shall we?

I like Roy Hodgson and I wish you all the best for next season, would be nice to see you have those European nights at the Cottage, if you make it as much of a fortress as you have made it in the league then you can be very confident, particularly with the new format. Good luck tomorrow.

fate, kismet, que sera sera - and all that - relax as Frankie once said!

I think because of his experience at Blackburn, Roy won't let it happen again.

experience is the best teacher...
