Russia2018 #JoieDeFoot

... Wiki

+ Gibraltar ... away (10/10/2016) and home (31/08/2017) ... their recent results
Cyprus ... recent results
Estonia ... recent results
Greece ... recent results
BiH ... recent results
... and our recent results

Our FA preferred a younger manager ... who's more in touch with the current generation of players ... above all else, a manager that will work for peanuts ... #WilmotsOut and #MartinezIn ... also I'm very happy that Henry will join us and guide our strike force ... mainly because Wilmots was content to do fvck all about our young strikers that didn't deliver and he just wanted to wait until they had enough experience to figure it out for themselves #wasteful ... Henry has his work cut out for him. Martinez, Jones and Henry deserve to be given time to prove themselves ... they might do a magnificent job, they might not ... in any case it will be entertaining and I'm excited to see a very aggressive, open Belgium up there with the big boys:

With all due respect to the old farts that didn't get the job ... geezers like Van Gaal, Hiddink and Lippi ... the past ... what I want for the future is exciting, stylish, fluid, courageous, sophisticated ... it's sparkling, it's free-flowing, it's attacking football.
"Pep Guardiola and Roberto Martinez are often considered to come from the same school of coaching, with Martinez bringing an entertaining passing style to his sides to emulate the great free-flowing Barcelona and Bayern Munich sides of Pep."
Both Guardiola and Martinez are disciples of Cruijff ... in that sense, they are in the same mould ... just nowhere near the same level and success. Martinez was being hailed as the coming man ... sure that has cooled down ... still our team presents a great opportunity to redeem himself and he does well in cup competitions ... that's what matters to us. Despite his defenses being far from awesome, build-up play has been a joy to watch ... and it doesn't take long to warm to him ... as he is a charming basterd

Looking at the highest paid NT managers (from the usual suspects within UEFA) ...


That's by no means a thrilling list ... and those that weren't dismissed had to digest plenty of criticism. Hodgson was paid between 6 to 7 times more than Wilmots ... it wouldn't be a big surprise when Allardyce's salary turns out to be 6x that of Martinez ... Holland probably will spend 3 to 4 times as much as we do ... while the other NTs on this list have even more money to throw around. I'm reconsidering my initial reaction ... compared to the others ... Martinez, Jones and Henry on the cheap looks like the best value for money.

Martinez made his first selection public ... for the friendly with Spain in Brussels (01/09) and the first qualifier against Cyprus in Nicosia (06/09)
