He FINALLY stands up, makes a reasonable comment, acts like a real manager and stops grasping at straws:
Hodgson: "I'm responsible"
This should have been the mantra weeks ago, even after a draw or the unimpressive home win over Wba. To be fair, the players are just not performing good enough and I don't know if they ever will this season, but you expect your leader to lead and put them in the best position to succeed.
The only thing I can say is hopefully Torres isn't seriously injured, though he won't go away w/Spain, and all the others return healthy and come back with a changed winning mentality from their national squads. That locker room has got to be like a funeral home at the moment..
