Good Luck Roy!

Good Luck Roy!

I can`t be the only person who finds the timing of Roy Hodgson`s appointment as the next England manager to be a bit strange.

I accept that perhaps this is the ideal opportunity, and indeed the window of opportunity for Roy to be given the role but analytically I suggest Roy was in his managerial prime when he was with us.

Roy took us to a different level which culminated in a Europa League Final appearance, an appearance that capped a great run which will be remembered for many a year. Subsequently, the chance to manage a 'big club` tempted him but success evaded him at a Liverpool side that was on the slide.

A spell at West Brom has seen his stock somewhat restored but the news that England had approached him to manage or country did take everybody slightly aback.

But having watched Roy operate, during his time at Craven Cottage, we`ve every reason to expect him t do a decent job with what many see as a limited pool of players, or as some might say, just how he worked at Craven Cottage.

Good luck to him. I hope they give him a sufficient amount of time to show what he's capable of. Nothing but respect for Sir Roy!

Congrats, Sir Roy! Congrats, people! We've been waiting for that appointment since 2010, haven't we? Oh, and btw, I bet Stockdale will now finally get his first cap! Jeah!

I think he'll do a good job, he's a very experienced manager both domestically and at international level, as Steven Howard said “would you rather the England manager spoke 5 languages or had the reading level of a 2 year old” I know which one I’d go with.

Great choice for England manager. Its good that he still got the job despite the Liverpool debacle. Liverpool are the premier league's equivalent of England. Players going past their prime, the rest under achieving, fans expecting too much, and living on past glories. He got our squad to play out of their skins and over achieve. Maybe he can do the same for England. Glad Roy got what he wanted. Good luck!
