Glenn Hoddle HAS to be the next England managerWatch
About his comments on disabled people, you have to remember that was almost 20 years ago. At that time, gay marriage was illegal everywhere, and it was legal to rape your wife in the 90s too. Hoddle had a bit of a weird spiritual/religious phase, which he is clearly over now.
If anyone else (other than Bilic) is appointed, DO NOT expect us to do any better at tournaments. If Greece could win the Euros, we bloody well can get to at least the semis. We just need a few more technically skilled players (coming through younger age groups as I type), and a tactically astute manager.
He's 59 this year and hasn't managed a top division team for 13 years. What would be the point? I'd rather keep Hodgson.
The dearth of options available mean Hoddle is involved in the discussions but if they do decide to give Southgate the job temporarily then he could be a handy, experienced manager as a number two possibly.
It was disappointing his first reign ended in the way it did as we'll never know how he would have performed in the tournament's ahead with the England team he had at his disposal.
