Someone leaked the password to a mate?

Cracked password?

Seriously, apart from the tweet itself where is the punchline?

FA make Hodgson approach

Posted on: Sun 29 Apr 2012

WEST Bromwich Albion have today received an official approach from The Football Association to speak to Head Coach Roy Hodgson about the England Manager's post.

The Club are currently in negotiations with Roy about a new contract - his current deal ends on June 30 - and remain very keen to bring these talks to a successful conclusion.

However, Roy has expressed a desire to explore this opportunity and, accordingly, the Club have granted him permission to speak to The FA.

Chairman Jeremy Peace said: "Roy has done a fantastic job over the past 15 months and the fact The FA want to discuss the England role with him is testament to that.

"Roy is a proud Englishman and we can understand why he wants to speak to The FA about this highly-prestigious managerial position.

"However, we have emphasised to Roy how much we would like him to remain as our Head Coach and continue his major contribution to our project at The Hawthorns as we look to establish ourselves as a Barclays Premier League club.

"Everyone here has an excellent working relationship with him and he is immensely popular with our supporters."

Not sure why there's this cast iron certainty he'll be a catastrophe. Funny as it would be, there's a chance he'll do ok.

He is at his best when working with limited players. In international terms that's what he'd have with England. He won't actually win anything but neither would anyone else.

If by some sort of miracle he did well I'd feel like leaving the country, but if it goes as we all know it surely will then it'll be the most hilarious carnage ever.

I'm gutted they go straight into a tournament, he could get appointed and sacked within the space of a couple of months

Well if the FA interviewed him he must be their No. 1 choice. No doubt.

Peace out mate. That much of angst isn't good but I see where you are coming from. I's leave my country too if Rahul f'ing Gandhi becomes the PM.

This is partly funny, partly vomit inducing. I do still want England to do well, however hard it is to support them and some of the cunts in the team. But having him in charge will completely ruin the Euros for me. I guess I'll be supporting Spain eh!

I look forward to his first interview as England manager, setting expectations of navigating the extremely tough group stages and how we were just glad to be there.

Will also be interesting to see how the UK media - who slammed Capello's rigid 4-4-2 - take to Roy's ... well, rigid 4-4-2.

But he's English innit! I daren't even begin to compare Roy's CV to Capello's. The fucking FA.
