Roy Hodgson: Tactics called into question

Roy Hodgson: Tactics called into question

Sky Sports News Radio host Mikey Burrows returns to the hosts' hotseat and is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk.com duo Mark Holmes and James Marshment to discuss the latest round of World Cup qualifiers.

First up for discussion is England's draw in Ukraine and the debate as to whether Roy Hodgson should have geared his side up to play more expansively. Despite the draw, Homzy is far from impressed with the display and wants England to adhere to a 20-year plan of changing the way we play the game as a nation from grassroots up.

Marshy, playing devil's advocate, argues that playing differently would probably result in an instant failure to reach the major events - but would like to see Ross Barkley handed a more prominent role.

Trapattoni's departure as Republic of Ireland coach is also dissected, but hear why the trio have deep fears about the main men in the frame to replace him.

There are kinder words for Scotland, with Marshy hailing the displays of Ikechi Anya and Homzy pouring praise on Gordon Strachan, while the international failings of both Wales and Northern Ireland also come under scrutiny.

t's just a ride. Bill Hicks is sorely missed, what a prophet and still relevant twenty years after his death. I'm glad though he didn't get to see George Bush Jnr as President.
