Savage hit the nail on the head on FF earlier - take the Liverpool thing out of Hodgson's CV and he's by far and away the outstanding candidate for the job. Bags of experience, not only of the English game, but also European football and international football.
Harry was the media favourite, but comes with too much baggage. Harry's good when he can wheel and deal. Hodgson's good at working with what he's got. I know who I'd rather have with the England setup being as it is.
The main thing working against Hodgson now is the media, and the fans who buy into it. We've seen the negative reaction because they called it wrong, you can imagine the self-congratulating and backslapping if the results don't come straight away.
