If Southgate...

If Gareth Southgate ends up getting the England job on a permanent basis, I'm going to lose it.

You know why?

A few months ago, after Roy Hodgson stepped dowm, I placed a speculative bet on Southgate becoming 'Next England Manager'. I can't recall how much my stake was, but it was a considerable amount of money because I liked his chances.

Shortly after placing the bet, Southgate became the short-priced favourite. Then - a couple of days afterwards - Southgate said he had no interest in taking the job.

Sam Allardyce ended up at the helm and this killed my bet.

As we all now know, Allardyce's reign ended a little over a day ago. Southgate has now been announced as the caretaker manager for the next four games.

It's a funny old game..
