Twitter divided over ex-Liverpool England manager

The morning after the night before, and as a dejected English public go to work the main headlines in the media are that Roy Hodgson has unequivocally stated his intention to stay in the England job in the wake of a demoralising 2-1 defeat to Uruguay, which has left England’s World Cup hopes hanging by a thread.

People have taken to Twitter to express their opinions, and here are some of the more supportive reactions to the news.
