Roy has bought a book by Tommy Cooper to inspire his comedy

Following the 'space monkey' gag that backfired at half-time in the vital England v Poland world cup qualifying gig, under pressure gaffer Woy, sorry Roy Hodgson is considering a comedy class to get him match fit for the World Cup in Brazil.

The FA have suggested to Hodgson one on one lessons from Michael McIntyre, and have also considered courses from The Comedy School and Amused Moose, which boast alumni such ads Rhod Gilbert, Greg Davies and Kojo.

The 62 year old is keen to avoid more mishaps like the 'feed the monkey' which could have offended Andros Townsend and other black players in the squad.

The Football Association have ruled out Frankie Boyle because he is Scottish and offensive, Billy Connoly because he is Scottish and his long-winded stories would not finish in the half-time interval, and Reginald D Hunter, after his controversial booking at the PFA Annual Awards.

From comedy editor Ray Di O'Gaga.
