Hodgson v Redknapp: what the stats say
The FA have approached Roy Hodgson to be the next England manager, despite much clamor by press and fans alike for Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp to take over the helm.
Both managers have enjoyed success at club level and have been the two favourites to manage the Three Lions since Fabio Capello left the post, but who has the better record?
But it is only Hodgson that has international experience, managing Switzerland, UAE and Finland.
Who do you think is the right choice?
GOOD LUCK TO ROY
ENGLAND FANS SHOULD GET BEHIND HIM AND STOP THE **** AND CRYING ABOUT NOT GETTING HARRY.
At last a logical decision from the FA. Roy is a proven quantity and above all he had Fulham playing like Liverpool under Paisley/ today's Barcelona/ Rinus Michels' Ajax.
Remember the FA didn't even reply to Jack Charlton's application and look what he did with Ireland. Now they have a manager who's done it at many levels,
Finally, if the discredited UK Press don't like something, it must be the best.
Roy Hodgeson would have been a great manager for Liverpool if the players had bought into his system, it is going to be interesting how Stevie G handles his system. His is the man the got a team like Swizerland playing well, that they drew with us (England), I'm excited as he is in the mould of Terry Venerables with a better group of players than he's ever had before.
If you want a foreign coach, the man is GUUS HIDDINK, managed about 4 different countries in world Cups, an absolute class act!
I think Hodgson is a baeeterr bet than Redknapp though, because he has managed all round the world, therefore is more tactically adept and has a better understanding of international football. The Premier League is not the pinnacle in football, just look at english success in Europe in the last few seasons
Harry should be given a chance to manage England one day dispite his "dodgy dealings". Like Terry Venables he is able to get a team together and make them perform. However I am a huge Roy Hodgeson fan and think that if he is able to deal with the prima donas he will probably go further in competitions than Harry because he is far more tactically astute. As a Fulham fan I could not believe how he was able to get some of the results he got, but he did, and against some very good European sides..
At Liverpool he was on a loser from day one, the players didn't like his style of play and soon the fans were calling for Kenny to come back. How could he be expected to manage the club with Kenny sitting over his shoulder. He had to make do with the poor Liverpool sqad he inherited and was not given the cash to buy who he really wanted unlike Kenny.
Having said all that there is only one manager in England who I believe is up to the job of winning and he is Irish. I wish the FA were talking to Sunderland and not WBA.
What about Stuart Pearce. Would have played the kids and moved on the golden failures. Lets hope Roy does the same. Would "our Arry" have left out Frank (his nephew) JT, Rio, etc etc? No chance!!
Think we have for a change done the right think ... was talk of Hoddle, who will of course always be in the wings hovering, But think it may well be sizing up and preparing Stuart pearce. Good thing that!
So all in all a good thing and happening.
blah blah blah, we havent won owt since 66' FACT. give roy a chance but we must re build
or it,ll be another 46 years of sweet f.a.!!!
