Pardew: 'Roy Is No Wally With A Brolly'!

Alan Pardew says Roy Hodgson CARES about England ... when other bosses were clueless what the job meant.
Alan Pardew: "Roy Hodgson has now had two competitive matches after the two friendlies, all four games unbeaten, and you have to give him very good marks.
"His selections and substitutions have been spot-on; he has worked very hard with the talent available; handled the media very well; and you can see from his animation on the sidelines how much he cares.
"I've seen other England managers on that touchline sometimes looking quite glassy-eyed, as if they're thinking "what on earth do I do now?"
"Roy has the experience to avoid that and make the right calls with a calm head."
