    Now the FA doing something right at last. Good luck Sam. I wonder if he will adopt the Roberto style. Just hope he makes a point in his first game by dropping everyone of the failures from France.

    It matters not who gets the job nothing will ever change as long as players are selected by who they play for and not on form. The omission of Danny Drinkwater and Andros Townsend proves it beyond doubt. Wilshire, Sterling and Milner should have been nowhere near the squad and if young Rashford had not been at Utd he would have never been considered even though the kid showed his worth. Big Sam will follow the same policy under media pressure and normal service will be resumed. We have always done it always will.

    At the end of the day you can’t polish a turd!

    Sorry, but I can’t describe our collective players as a ‘turd’, they are clearly better individually than many or most of the teams that continually get the better of them.

    Now, ‘Underperforming, over anxious shower of tarts’…..maybe !

    But that big bearded redhead lad who bossed the midfield for Iceland is a mundane p!ayer in an ordinary Championship side and hasn’t got near a Premiership contract and that goes for all their players beyond Sigurdsson and Gudjhonssen (who is a decade past his best.)

    They are though a TEAM and play like it…..ditto Wales ….ditto Costa Rica at the last World Cup and typically that goes for Germany who also have the benefit of being high class individuals, who are still MANAGED to play together as a good team unit.

    That’s the challenge facing Allardyce choosing the right system and then the right players best suited to each position in that system and NOT the biggest name players.

    Whether he will or not ….???

    At the end of the day freak results do happen, we are living proof of that. England lost one game and actually beat the team that came home to a heros welcome, open top bus the lot.

    I was made up when Hodgeson was sacked, cos I couldn’t stand the boring fart, but after weighing everything up, England actually looked one of the better teams in the group stage.
    The whole tournament in my opinion was a poor spectacle as far as the standard of football was concerned, it wasn’t just us and the Iceland debacle.

    Lets hope big Sam cuts the strings from the puppeteer that is the FA, and picks players who are playing well for their clubs irrespective if they are a top 4 club or not, or play south of Watford.

    It’s certainly broken the mould of character and persona of previous England managers and will be interesting to see what develops.

    From Matlock to ManU
    What a journey!

    Fat Sam is ideally qualified to be England manager…..he’s won nothing.

    The national side surely can’t sink any lower; but that’s been said before. I thought we had hit the bottom when Crapello left :ohmy:

    This is a different appointment though; Sam is not and won’t be an FA puppet and will pick his players regardless of who they play for.

    The FA could bring in Pep, Jose, Arsene, or any other world-class manager and it wouldn’t matter one iota. The fact is that the England squad do not have the hunger to win games for their country. They live pampered lifestyles a million miles away from reality, and have done so ever since they were first taken under the wing of whatever club developed them. None of them grew up kicking a ball in downtown city slums like Alexis Sanchez did in Chile.

    When you have the likes of Marcus Rashford being given a rise from £7500 a week to £25000 a week, it makes your eyes water. Not at the £25,000, but the fact that as an unproven kid, he was earning in a week what the average supporter earns in 3 months – even the youth teams are killing the hunger by ever-increasing pay packets for 16 & 17 year olds!

    Hang on a minute, whether he kicked a ball in the slums or what , his breeches arse isn’t hanging out now ?

    Sanchez, Suarez, the Germans,Spaniards and Italians etc etc are all minted and are all paid similarly obscene amounts

    You can argue it’s wrong or not …..but I expect all the Barcelona and Real Madrid players are pampered to buggery an’ all, but by and large it doesn’t impair their international ambitions/performances.

    (By the way, the Moyes appointment is a pretty good outcome for your lot I reckon)

    You’ve missed my point Zeb. I don’t doubt Sanchez, Suarez etc are pampered now, but they weren’t pampered as 10 year old kids growing up in their South American towns.

    Marcus Rashford has been with Man Utd since he was 7 years old. Rooney joined Everton at 9. Sturridge joined Villa at 10. Kane signed for Arsenal aged 8. If I had the time, I could probably continue with the entire squad, and find that almost every one of them had joined a premier league club by the time they were 10.

    These players and their families will have been “looked after” by the rich premier league clubs throughout their early teens, all the way through to signing their first professional contract – that is what I meant by “pampered”.
