Roy Hodgson will reflect on the great Sir Alex Ferguson

Roy Hodgson will reflect on the great Sir Alex Ferguson

Hodgson has guided the national side to within sight of World Cup 2014 with some solid displays since he took over the reins from Fabio Capello almost exactly a year ago.

The improvement was rubber-stamped by a 2-1 friendly victory over Brazil at Wembley at the beginning of February, and Hodgson will be opening up over the development of the side along with his hopes and dreams for the future.

Joleon Lescott has featured several times in the qualifying campaign, and he'll be offering a player's perspective of the international set-up as well as lifting the lid on Manchester City's failed defence of their Premier League title and reflecting on Saturday's FA Cup Final at Wembley.

There's also the huge matter of Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement to address and Hodgson will no doubt be paying particularly strong tributes to the legendary boss, who is retiring after 26 years and 38 trophies at Old Trafford.

Both Hodgson and Lescott have pitted their wits against Ferguson on numerous occasions and are therefore well placed to assess what made the wily Scot so successful. In addition, the appointment of David Moyes as his successor will be addressed.

Ben Shephard and Chris Kamara will also have their say, so join the gang on Sunday morning.

So don't miss Goals on Sunday: 11am, Friday, Sky Sports 1 HD

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
