'Arry was never going to accept the England job anyway - he was just going to negotiate a better deal at Spurs.
Hodgson is the right man for the job; however, the players and the press will already be against his appointment meaning he's on a hiding to nothing. Feel sorry for the bloke! In actual fact, I hope he doesn't take the job for his own sake cause what happened at Liverpool was only a taster for what it will be like as England manager.
As for 'Arry not holding grudges, that's right up there with Sam Allardyce sulking when McLaren got the job.
