|I'm Just here to watch the opposition Mr Gold.|
England are once again hurting after a whoppingly humiliating defeat to Iceland - no, not the cut price supermarket, but the tiny country with 300,000 inhabitants. Stats are that Icelandic males have a 1 in 2000 chance of playing football for their country! Back at West Ham your chances of playing for Roy Hodgson's England were 1 in ten gazillion, apparently.
After an in and out opening three matches, the Hodgson error was exposed - put simply: NO PLAN B. Was there ever a game where England needed the twin battering rams of Andy ('I can out-head every CB in the world') and Michail Antonio ('Watch me open your defence with a direct run towards goal'), then it was the final quarter of last night's game where Iceland had firmly shut the gates.
Even worse, England lacked a midfielder who could lead by example...anyone for Mark Noble? As a committed Hammer, a big part of you will be glad that our players weren't exposed to the horror of being part of the Euro mess.
The competition for a new manager will be fascinating - mostly because there are no obvious replacements! Let's hope that they don't approach Mr Bilic who clearly has the experience and smarts for the role. Either way, with the excitement of the first Olympic Stadium season ahead, He'd probably tell them to fcuk off!
