    After delivering clichés from a pre-prepared(!) statement on the night and refusing questions, his press conference the day after he says:

    "I don't really know what I'm doing here, I thought my statement last night was sufficient." a couple of times and revealed he had to be goaded into coming by people suggesting he was running scared, and wanted his statement to have been it.

    He also called England's loss "a fact of life" and "one bad game" before running off as quickly as he arrived again, very similar to Steve McClaren's walk-off this time.

    You're here to answer questions and be held accountable for your decisions as a manager, you vindictive manchild.

    I am no football expert ,but I can still say that it was not "one bad game" his tactics were horrible, and the team struggled in an easy group.

    Agreed. Listened to that live on TalkSport, they also had some bloke from the FA who is involved in the recruitment process of our next manager, he openly admitted he knows nothing about football.

    None of the FA board of directors has ever played football professionally.
    Hence the FA is a shambles and will never create a World Cup winning team

    The man should never have managed the national team. I agree on points about the FA. They bottled it and appointed a yes man.

    He's an apartheid apologist, too. Remember that.

    I dislike Hodgson as much as the next person but playing in SA during Apartheid is not the same as apologising for it.*

    He has explicitly stated enough terrible things to confirm he is a disgusting human being, without putting 2 and 2 tightened to get 5. *
