The aftermath of a brawl between players from England's and Serbia's U-21 teams two weeks ago continues, with Serbian police having charged two unnamed England players and an assistant coach for their roles in the racism-tinged melee.

The racial and physical abuse subjected to England's U21 players and staff at the end of their Euro 2013 qualifying playoff against Serbia on Tuesday has rightly outraged the majority in football, who thought those sort of dark days were long gone.
After Connor Wickham tapped into an empty net to earn England a 1-0 victory and propel them into Israel next summer, the team suffered a barrage of abuse and missiles from the Serbian home crowd, while their players stormed to the celebrating England team to verbally and physically express their grievances.

Instead Serbia blamed England's Danny Rose for all the problems, saying the England player behaved in an 'inappropriate, unsportsmanlike and vulgar manner' towards supporters after being sent off after the final whistle.

The FA's new code of conduct has been issued to England players and it apparently isn't too far off from what we predicted. Covering everything from respect for hotel staff to leaving the designation of approved mobile phone use areas to the discretion of the manager, the 16-page booklet covers a vast array of topics and leaves plenty of grey area for public debate and FA bungling when it comes to enforcement of the rules.

Reasons to be cheerful about Roy Hodgson’s England team

Ducky's Note: On of our readers' thoughts on how England fared at the Euros. It all seems so long ago now...

Looking back on England's performance at Euro 2012, there were plenty of reasons to be cheerful. Prior to the tournament, England had not been considered by the pundits or the bookmakers as serious contenders for the trophy, given the number of injuries sustained by key players, the suspension of star striker Wayne Rooney, and the fact that Roy Hodgson had only a few weeks in the job to prepare the players.

Roy Hodgson gets off to a bad start as England manager

When the FA announced yesterday that current West Bromwich Albion manager Roy Hodgson had agreed on a four year contract to be England manager, it was one of those ho-hum moments where we are neither happy or sad, neither angry or calm. After the ups and downs of the Fabio Capello era where such budding promise ended in total chaos, England fans like myself have become somewhat immune to events like these, opting for more of a "wait and see approach", but today, in typical England manager fashion, Hodgson showed us that we are already heading down the wrong track.
