Positive points: -You wouldnt be sure fire relegation candidates in League 2 as you have proved you can score against opposition from that league. -You'll get decent money for Torres when he leaves next Jan/May. -You managed to scrape a draw, so didnt lose outright. Penalties are always a lottery draw.
On a serious note, I really dont think you can blame Hodgson for all of this. He has inherited some real sh*t from Benitiz and I doubt the FSW would be doing much better if he was still at the helm.
If only you had waited 3 weeks when appointing a manager, you could have had O'Neill.
