ROY HODGSON KICKING HIMSELF FOR NOT CONSULTING FACEBOOK IN OPENING DRAW
England Manager ignores views of gobshite experts only to see Russia equalise
Roy Hodgson was left kicking himself last night as a late Russian equaliser robbed England of victory in their opening game of Euro 2016. To add to the England manager's frustration though, the late goal came at the end of a second half where he failed to consult the wisdom of assembled experts on Facebook which would have guaranteed a 10-0 victory.
Facebook gobshite Trevor said, "A blind man could see that goal coming, it was nailed on from the moment he took Rooney off. You need experience to see a game out like that and Rooney is six years older than Wilshere."
"...and what's he pissing about with the likes of Sterling and Milner for? Why not give Rashford a run? Anyone can see he's the new Pele.”
“…and don’t get me started on Adam Lallana."
The disappointed England boss admitted, "I've let the whole nation down.”
“Unfortunately I couldn't see what all the blokes down the pub could. I usually keep my phone in my pocket so I can consult the sage wisdom to be found on Facebook but I accidentally left it in the dressing room for the second half so I was flying solo.”
It was a mistake that cost England dear in the end as Hodgson felt exposed without the oracle to call on.
“I only had my extensive 40 year career in football management and the input of my talented backroom staff to rely on when really I needed the fountain of football knowledge and insight from blokes 8 pints deep on Facebook," adding, "I'm considering my position."
