Nice little tribute to Roy Hodgson here.

Even if I might not agree with the last sentence, I liked this bit.

The Englishman has correctly instilled defensive discipline and structure as the first requirement of his task. Recognising the need for that was of paramount importance. Then he organised his team into a unit, ensuring the sum of the parts usually exceeded the whole. Study Fulham’s team and you’ll scratch your head to understand why they stood 7th in the table last Saturday evening, just a point short of a Uefa Cup place.
