What a plonker! Jump on the latest bandwagon in town. Do you remember when Alan Curbishley was being pushed for England manager? And Sam Allardyce? Who is there better than Hogson at the moment? No English/British manager stands out. David Moyes was flavour of the month a year ago.Now where is he? Gary Monk, my foot, on the basis of a few good results. When Swansea implode next season who will remember him?
