Fucking joke of an appointment. I wont be watching another England game. Astounding lack of ambition shown by the FA. Just another "Yes" man.
Well this post is embarrassing isnt it but was my thoughts at the time. I well and truly had to eat my words and eat humble pie. I tip my cap to Gareth. He has done an excellent job.

I don't wished to appear immodest (I'm not that kinda guy - in fact I'm humble to a fault) but I was very pleased to see Southgate appointed at the time. In fact I said on another forum (where they were totally opposed to him) that I thought even if we bombed out of the world cup he should be kept on long term. And give him time to see his plan through to the end.

aged again very well.

only one win in the last 5 matches (against Sweden and even weve beaten them)
but three defeats
only one goal from open play were scored in these matches
Kane scored only once in this period. from the spot.
Tbf fella one thing that hasn’t aged well is that 1994 beard and haircut combo

Not sure it was an amazing achievement. He brought the country together, adopted the right formation and got the players to believe in him which is half the battle. But then we did strike lucky to get as far as we did. The Columbia shootout could have gone either way and we didn/t meet an elite nation (other than Belgium in two dead rubbers) throughout. I'd call it more promising with room to build for the future.

Well sure if you look at it this way but history will remember that England achieved a World Cup semi-final. Not bad eh?

It'll go down as "that summer 2018, when it was hot and sunny for 3 months solid, during which England got to the World Cup semi final, and England was briefly united and happy"
