The Three Lions have lost just one of Hodgson's 21 matches in charge, but the team have received criticism for the amount of drawn encounters that they have played out.
However, ahead of tomorrow's final World Cup qualifier against Poland, midfielder Gerrard has revealed that the players do not pay attention to any of the "negative views".
"We know some people have negative views outside the group, but that's not important. We are confident and have faith in the manager," he told reporters.
If England defeat the Poles at Wembley, then it would secure their place in Brazil next year.
