Well you know our feelings on the man mate.
After all the stick we got from other clubs fans for never welcoming him as our Manager, for knowing before he arrived he was totally wrong for us and for driving him out, it's nice that his inadequacies are being played out on the world stage, showing once again that we are the most knowledgeable football in the world
I think Hodgeson is gone no matter what. If we win the Euro he will retire on top of his perch. If we don't win, starting Sterling against Russia and Wilshere against Slovakia will see him sacked. I hear people give him credit for putting Rooney on early in second half instead of Wilshere, but it think he took a lot of stick for not making a change for Sterling against Russia. Coming into a tournament not knowing the first 11 has no excuses.
If we won the group and went all the way it would probably be,
Last 16 v Northern Ireland.
QF v Belgium Highest ranked in Europe
Semi v Croatia Coatia beat spain
Final v Germany
If we are to get to the final it will now probably be.
Last 16 v Iceland
QF v France Probably the worst French side in years with added pressure of being the home nation.
Semi v Germany Would have had to play anyway.
Final v Belgium would have had to play anyway.
Other than teams in different order, there is not a whole lot of difference for us or Wales.
