In the most disappointing decision that's been made since Gareth Southgate opted to miss a pen and ruin our lives in 1996, the FA has only gone and decided to make him permanent England manager.
Well, as long as he avoids a World Cup qualifying defeat to Scotland - according to reports.
Metro reports that he'll be appointed after next week's friendly against Spain.
As if 2016 could get any worse. Let's just have a quick reminder of other atrocities that have befallen the planet in this god-forsaken year:
According to the Telegraph, the other candidates for the job have already been informed that the former Aston Villa defender will be England's next boss.
He recently spoke to press regarding his future, but was careful to not give too much away: "My future is not important. It is to me and my family, obviously. But what's important is that the team is top of the qualifying group going into Christmas and that the country is in a good place with that.
"Then there is time for whatever process is going to happen to take place. For me, that is what is right for the organisation, going through the process, talking to who they want to talk to.
"I have not discussed what happens next. I've got meetings in the diary about what happens next with all the age groups through to Christmas and January. I've not thought too much about that either."
We just have to wait and see if World Cup qualifying defeat by Scotland at Wembley on Friday night will hinder his chances or not.
Can this year get any worse?
