One of the best starts an England manager ever had; the players didn't even bat an eye-lid or yawn once!

England's new manager, Roy Hodgson, has started off his new term very successfully at the first get-together of his stars in Manchester.

Under the boiling Manchester heat (very seldom occurrence), he introduced himself, told the players of his ambitions, goals and directives and after half an hour not one of the players dropped off and had forty winks; a resounding success!

Glenn Hoddle's first meeting as the new England manager was slightly different because he forced all of the players to drop to their knees and pray to God for a half an hour and most of them only managed 5 minutes before snoozing off, a miracle!

Roy's introduction was a resounding success and the players loved his calm, cool, collected approach before kicking a few balls and practicing a few headers in the heat.

Ex-England manager, "Turnip Head" Graham Taylor gave the following press comment: "This is looking very promising because Roy has managed to keep their attention for longer than any of his predecessors has ever done apart from Sir Bobby Robson and Sir Alf Ramsey, it's a bloody miracle!"

Wayne Rooney was not available for comment, he was too busy burning his well earnt bucks on booze, bungs, sorry, throwing dices and gambling in very sunny Las Vegas!

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
