Managed a team that lost 3 out of 7 matches in a cup competition.

I accept that many HOLers will be anti-honours, but given that they do exist, is this award to GS a bit of a soft one?

Ridiculous. Got to the semi-finals of a world cup because he got a fortunate draw, a lot of the teams that usually do well didn't turn up, and he scraped through a penalty shootout after a game he should have won. A considerable improvement on the toilet that England usually produce on these occasions but if you want "services to football" I give you Hodgson who despite being utter garbage at two international finals has done more for the English game as a whole than Southgate has dreamt of.

And what do you now award Southgate if he ever actually does win something?

And Bobby Moore never got a knighthood, yet Hurst and Charlton did.

Never understood that.
As for Kane and Southgate's honours....really.

Much more deserving people do things that deserve recognition.

It just goes to show you just how much today...outside of technological developments.... is in many ways a poor and diluted version of yesteryear.

It's low expectation touchy feely bulls***.

This always throws up the usual whataboutery argument

Why can't we just be happy for them?

I think Kane's captaincy and all round professionalism was exemplary compared to the petulance showed by others representing England ie Rooney and Beckham and South gate's manner and professionalism was also refreshing compared to the buffoonary showed by many of his predecessors

Personally, I think his waistcoat should have got the award.
