Interesting article about the appointment here, which discusses Hodgson's tactical knowledge and his systems management approach compared to Redknapp who downplays the tactical side of the game to focus on his ability to motivate individuals.

Here's author's conclusions:

Quote:
The point here is not that England have no chance of winning the tournament Ė itís that they had no chance of winning the tournament by playing the anarchic football favoured by Redknapp. The type of football Hodgson offers is, in theory, the type of football that will maximise Englandís chances.
The author sums up his conclusion by adding:

Quote:
England must attempt to win the tournament; the chances are extremely slim, but have marginally increased with this appointment. England donít have good enough players to be open and indulge individuals, and therefore Hodgsonís system-first approach makes sense
I must admit that this article has won me around to feeling a lot more positive about Hodgson's appointment. The two big questions for me now are, will England's players have enough respect to follow Hodgson's instructions, and if they don't will he have the strength to drop any play that he believes won't follow his instructions.

He may well be mentioned but I doubt would be in top 3, doesn't seem to be a long term objective given his record- although had his best spell at WBA.

That's a bit rich after chucking away £24m on a bloke who couldn't even speak English.

Dull apointment for me,Hodgsons done ok,but nothing special,understandabley,the public want an english manager,this panders to that demand.Hes a steady appointment.
Gus Hiddink would have been my own personal choice.
But.....i wish him well more in hope than expectation.
The english sporting press wont be very forgiving,as hes not thier choice either.

Only two people have got Switzerland to the last 16 of the World Cup. One of them is Roy Hodgson, and he was also the first person to get them to qualify for the Euros.

On the other hand, Harry Redknapp has left financial turmoil behind at Bournemouth, West Ham and Portsmouth, and has won an FA Cup.

But at least with the England job he'd be unable to splash loads of money on dodgy Hulio Moneybags type players and their spiv agents whilst eyeing the 10% bung he'd receive for selling them on.

It would have been nice to seen the Sun get behind our team, but no they're still happy to bask in the gutter.

What a disgraceful rag the Sun is, but it's no surprise coming from a paper who's owner is deemed unfit to run a company. I wish Roy Hodgson all the best, he's a decent bloke and there aren't many of them around in the game at the top level these days.
