Best England manager since Robson. Would have definitely won a major tournament if not for rotten luck in all 3 of the tournaments he managed in.

So depressing but true. One day it'll hopefully change.

Is there another country in the EU quite as fearful of change and modern ways of coaching as England? What good is it having 50 and 60 year old businessmen in charge of our Football Association? I'm genuinely interested if that is the case in other European nations as I have no idea.


Scotland. Went foreign, failed, national outcry and back to the same old routine.

Isn't the main guy the same bloke that oversaw the twiglets brand.

It's a joke, the FA is fully geared to a business model.

Don't forget that two historical giants of European football haven't even qualified, so we're not quite at rock bottom yet.

Fair point but how the hell anyone who's managerial record consists of relegating a club and finishing bottom in the group at a international tournament can be deemed good enough to lead the national team is farcical.

Joe Hart wrote on Twitter, "Not going to lie, I'm gutted. I know what I bring to the team, but it is what it is," after finding that he’d been omitted from the England World Cup squad.

Support for Joe poured in from around the globe.

“It’s such a shame. We’re gutted too” posted Nabil Maâloul from Tunisia

“We know what you bring to the team Joe and we’re so sorry you won’t be playing” wrote Panamanian Hernán Darío Gómez

One heart-broken fan of Hart; Roberto Martínez from Belgium could only state “Was really, really hoping to see you in goal for England again Joe”
