Following the news that the Baggies boss has been approached by the FA with a view to taking over as Three Lions coach, we take a look at all the best reaction on Twitter
Following the news that West Brom have granted the FA permission to speak to Roy Hodgson over the vacant England managerial role, we take a look at the best reaction from Twitter.


The always hilarious Jamie Redknapp spoof account gets a hashtag going which could well catch on this summer.

"Roy hodgson... Really.!!!! Glenn hoddle for me. #England"

Meanwhile, former Sunderland man Michael Gray does not seem particularly impressed.

“'@SteveBowercomm: Surely Roy hodgson can't be the only name on the 'list'??' looks that way!

Everton captain Phil Neville suggests the FA had no choice.

"Be very hard to turn down England managers job!!"

West Brom defender Steven Reid admits that leaving the Baggies for England might not be such a difficult decision.

"Thwee OWLS on a shirwt, Jules Wimet still gleaming, Thirty yearws of hurwt, Never stopped me dweaming.

"I think with Hodgson in charge, England will find it easy against Sweden but they might struggle with Ukwaine and Fwance!"

Paul Dalglish, son of Liverpool boss Kenny, is far from Roy's biggest fan it appears.

"I'd be happy ish to have Roy manage England. Just worried that fans,press will turn quickly...

"Harry Redknapp £15 million compensation + £4million annual. Roy Hodgson £0 compensation + sub £2 million annual wage. #frugalFA"

And Stan Collymore just can't hide his enthusiasm over the potential appointment.

"FA Chairman David Sheepshanks, Burton, 2001: 'This National Football Centre will one day see us attract a former Neuchâtel Xamax manager.'"

Goal.com UK deputy editor Jonathan Birchall's somewhat dry take on matters.


Ivaan Jaison:

"Would prefer Eriksson back as manager. No way England would get past group stages if Hodgson is the manager. #GetRedknapp"

Daniel McBriar:
"Really, wouldn't we be better off with Gordon the gopher?"

Paul Georgallas:
"wodgson? Will he be be able to handle all the pressure?! Look what happened at liverpool - that proves it all really! Widiculous!"
