Perhaps you cannot read, because I did say in retrospect, it could be a positive thing.
But as I have said a million times, it is surprising given the multitude of far more experienced ex players out there already, that the job was offered to him.
So, yes I do see your point, and everyone elses.
Right then. Let's get down to the brass tax here then.
This multitude of far more experienced ex players that are out there that are suitable for the job that you speak of. Would you care to list them for us/me?
Let's keep it to the attributes that Hodgson is looking for in that he must be well respected in the game, has a good handle on who and what is relevant at this moment in time, has 50 or 60 international caps, has played alongside and against and personally knows a lot of the current squad, is a personable individual and is also currently studying or has achieved his UEFA A and B licences?
Can you name me a multitude of other individuals who fit that description please?
