Roy Hodgson is upset with the English media following criticism of England's 1-0 win over Norway on Tuesday night because people pointing out your failings is harsh, man.
"I am entitled to [be annoyed], aren't I? When you have questions like: 'You had only two shots on target …' We can't get rid of the baggage, we can't change the fact we had a bad World Cup, we can't play those games against Italy and Uruguay again, but I think you will have to give me the entitlement at least." - Hodgson to Daniel Taylor, The Guardian
Norway is ranked 53rd (it, like Hodgson, is also shit) while England is ranked 20th (I can't talk about it yet-sorry) but when told that England only had two shit shots on target, Hodgson angrily replied 'fucking bollocks'. He then told reports that there was only a '10 to 15 minute' period in the 2nd half where he wasn't pleased with the performance on the pitch. He's also taken a page out of Scolari's book and set up a psychiatrist to speak to the squad today.

He also spoke of the sly Man United players (and other players who are not from Man Utd but became inspired) who risked their own health to dodge the NT bullet: "The fact of the matter is that we haven’t got many more. There are four or five very good players who are not here through injury: Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw in defence, and Ross Barkley and Lallana in central midfield. There is Jon Flanagan, who we like and hope to see back soon, and of course the longer-term injuries with [Jay] Rodriguez."
