    Best and Worst Coaches of Euro 16

    With all due respect to Conte, I think Coleman must take it

    Worst: Hodgson v Wilmots. Example: Just look at the appalling use of substitutions, and the failure to adjust when situations are clearly going pear-shaped (v Wales Hodgson just threw on strikers hoping Wales would sit in the box).

    If Conte beats Germany, he's back in the lead.

      Slutsky must be in with a shout of being the worst coach. I mean, Russia couldn't even beat England.

        All joking aside, the problems totally pre-dated Slutsky. He did well to get them through the final few qualifiers.

        Del Bosque has had a bad tournament.

          Yeah, it's Hodgson by a mile. Wilmots can at least point at a couple of comfortable wins. Hodgson has a 90th minute winner against Wales, two disappointing draws and the worst performance in recent memory.

          No contest.

            If you asked 100 England fans whether they would like Chris Coleman to be the next England manager, do you think many would say yes?

              Slutsky has gotten his wings clipped by the mayor and CMA higher-ups who just can't tolerate a maverick that doesn't do things by the book.

                    Probably because of the strikers he threw on though.

                    If he were only able to throw on Robson-Kanu and Vokes, he wouldn't....ah, hold on.

                      Much as I would like to give it to Coleman, I reckon it still goes to LAgerback presently. What Coleman had to do tactically is find a system that used Bale, Ramsey and Allen to such effect (as well as bringing out the best out of Taylor, Gunther and the defence naturally). Lagerback hasn't got that level of player in his squad.

                        Hodgson also benefited from a lot of newish players hitting form during the season (Vardy, Alli etc) yet was somehow unable to get them to perform.

                          Coleman it is then. Conte also loses a point for the Zaza substitution.

                              It's pretty clear that coleman was able to beat the same team Italy beat with lesser players. And Iceland, even more so.

                              Others that should be mentioned are Petkovic, Switzerland held its own and was undefeated in the tournament save for their exit on PKs, where Poland had a perfect series, converting 5 of 5.

                              The worst coach is clearly Wilmots. One others that didn't get mentioned is Rosicky for the CR, 1pt and -3 GD out of three games.

                                Albania's coach merits a passing honorary mention.

                                Conte didn't really have a Plan B for L÷w's tactics. If not for Boateng's aberration, Germany would have won in normal time. I was surprised at Conte's lack of ideas.

                                  Conte's tactics were also too exhausting for the players, who looked shattered. They'd have been down to the reserves against France/Iceland.

                                    The whole squad got a heroes' welcome upon their return to Tirana. They won a game and didn't disgrace themselves in the other two.

                                    Lagerback for me. No stars, yet a fluid, organised structure designed to maximise the team's effectiveness.

                                        I would put Italy somewhere between A and B. They were not expected to beat Spain or to pulverize Belgium to such an extent.

                                        a1) Surpassed expectations in at least two of their matches

                                        Wales
                                        Iceland
                                        Italy


                                        a2) Surpassed expectations by reaching SF/QF:

                                        Wales
                                        Portugal
                                        Iceland
                                        Italy (given they were not seeded)

                                        b1) Surpassed expectations by getting out of group

                                        Wales
                                        N Ireland
                                        Iceland
                                        Slovakia
                                        Ireland
                                        Hungary

                                        b2) Surpassed expectations by winning a game

                                        Albania
                                        Turkey
                                        Iceland
                                        Wales
                                        Hungary
                                        Slovakia
                                        Ireland
                                        N Ireland

                                        c and d as in Dunc's post mainly

                                        e) went out earlier and more shambolically than expected

                                        England
                                        Austria
                                        Russia
                                        Spain
                                        maybe Czechia
                                        Belgium given the opponent/easier draw
