Official Approach By FA

Official Approach By FA

The Baggies have today received an official approach from the FA for permission to talk to Roy Hodgson concerning the doomed England managerial seat.

Albion confirm that they are in negotiations with the head coach over a new contract and that they remain very keen to bring those negotiations to a successful conclusion.

However, as Roy has expressed an interest to look at the opportunity and hear what England have to say, the club have granted him permission to speak to the FA.

In a statement released on wba.co.uk, Chairman Jeremy Peace said.

'Roy has done a fantastic job over the past 15 months and the fact the FA want to discuss the England role with him is testament to that. Roy is a proud Englishman and we can understand why he wants to speak to the FA, however, we have emphasised to Roy how much we would like him to remain as our Head Coach and continue his major contribution to our project at The Hawthorns.'

Don't do it Roy, remember how you were treated at Liverpool - that wouldn't be a patch on the poison chalice of the national team.

Dont let Roy go to England!. All the Vital Spurs supporters on here despirately want phoney Harry to leave Tottenham. Mind you....... Hodgson would be well qualified. One dead end job to another, used to inconsistant results, wont get too down when sacked. Yes, yes..... he is certainly well qualified to be the next manager of England. PS..... are there 11 English players left in the Premiership to make up a team?

rememberscarborough - no, never heard of him :-)

Leave it to Harry, he's far better suited.

personally if as has been claimed by the FA they want a man to look at the bigger picture of the whole England set up, I think Roy is the perfect man for the role. fans will get carried away in wanting a manager for today, but we have no chance at either this summers Euros or the WC in Brazil, so why not go with someone who will look at building for the long tern structure as opposed to paying £6m a season to someone that wont win anything anyway.
