Singing for England
23 December 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Managing England always ends in failure. Even if you win the World Cup like Alf Ramsey. The trouble with Alf, he should had quit in 1970.

Some like Don Revie went to look for a better payday elsewhere. For most of them it was just disappointment.

There was some who could hold their heads up high. Bobby Robson was disparaged by the press but took England to the semi finals in Italia 1990. Terry Venables had to overcome legal troubles but he took England to semi finals in the European Championships on home turf in 1996.

This was an interesting and sobering look at England football managers shown during the 2018 World Cup. Very few had much to shout about. At least Kevin Keegan was honest of his shortcomings as a national team manager.

A few had no business to be in the top job in the first place. Graham Taylor, Steve McCLaren, Roy Hodgson, Sam Allardyce. It was not the impossible job for them, they were never up to it.
