Roy Hodgson is now in line to be England manager

Although Harry Redknapp had been widely tipped to be the next England football team manager, the Football Association has decided to appoint Roy Hodgson.  When Fabio Capello resigned and Harry Rednapp was acquitted of tax evasion offences, there was enormous support for Harry as the next manager.  Earlier this year the media, senior England players, fellow managers, pundits and fans were delighted with the prospect of Harry taking the job.  It seemed to be his destiny and well within his grasp. Some sports writers and pundits are still saying that Harry is the best man for the job. Some fear that the England job may turn out like the Anfield failure for Roy.

The FA has chosen a safer, easier and cheaper option.  Time will tell if it was a wise choice.  The England job may be a poisoned chalice at this point in time. Harry may be the best England manager we never had! Perhaps fans of Brian Clough would disagree.
