Southgate is a likeable bloke but championship level manager. A lot of fans have fallen for the hype of his runs to the semis and then a final but , particularly in the WC, weve had favourable runs.

Hes dull as dish water and a typical FA appointment but hes not going anywhere soon
Like a lot of England managers, he has been very lucky with qualifying group draws. As soon as the draw is made you know they will win the group.

World Cup- They beat everyone you would expect them to beat bar Croatia and lost games you expect them to lose. Quite a nice run to the semi finals. Yet he was made out to be a hero

Euro's- Again decent run with mostly home advantage but Germany aside, you would expect them to win the games they won and that was probably the worst German side for ages and we had a let off when they missed that sitter. Italy for me was 50/50 and could have gone either way as it showed with it going to penalties.

So he has done well but its not as if they reached the semi final or final by beating Belguim/France/Brazil etc and cant see a top team going for him when he calls it quits with England
