Inter’s time with Roy Hodgson, summed up via the official club website.
Season 1995/96: Played some decent, even good football. Faded near season’s end. Sneaked into UEFA Cup places.
Season 1996/97: Starts well but again fades in Serie A. Good UEFA Cup run, loses final on penalties to Schalke. Resigns.
Season 1998/99: Brought back to “save the season” but misses out on a UEFA Cup qualification place in a play-off.
My summary: So, based on Inter story, England can expect Hodgson to start well, play OK football, fade a bit, get a bit lucky, miss out in crunch games.
