Following on from Friday's piece where we took a look at what Roy Hodgson had said over the years, here's what others have said about Roy Hodgson over the years.
“He changed the whole way we were playing, He made us more of a footballing team than the direct-ball team under Lawrie. His knowledge of the game, his philosophies . . . he has that temperament a manager needs. He never gets too down, and he doesn’t let us get too carried away when we’re having a good spell.”
Danny Murphy, former Liverpool midfielder currently at Fulham FC
"His entire management career has been based on imparting method and discipline into teams. Occasionally, there have been accusations of rigidity, but Hodgson’s sides are never sterile. Fulham seldom deviate from 4-4-2 and the wide players, while expected to track back, are encouraged to be audacious...Mavericks are too temperamental to fit into Hodgson’s conscientious approach, so Jimmy Bullard was sold to Hull for £5m and some of the money spent on Dickson Etuhu, an industrious, hard-running midfielder."
Richard Wilson, writer Scotland Herald
