  1. 1. Next England Manager



Recommended Posts

If the FA decide they want a new manager at the end of euro 2016 and they decide they want that man to be english, who would be your first choice?

I voted for Gary Neville because, despite his stint at Valencia, I think he will be become the best manager out of the mentioned.

It's hardly an inspiring list though.

It would never happen but I would absolutely love Slaven Bilic. He talks so much sense and is the right amount of crazy. I think I love him.

We should go foreign, but we wont. Expect someone safe and dull like Gareth Southgate.

I've gone other as we shouldn't restrict ourselves to **** English managers. If theres a good foreign candidate, go for him.

Greg Dyke alluded to they may be forigen but would have Premiership experience which opens up loads.

Scolari ;)

Already?

Bilic already? He has a good record in International football coupled with having done an excellent job already in the Premiershio and he has played here so he knows what makes the England team tick. I was all over the West Ham board after Big Sam was given the heave ho but Bilic has been phenomenal.

It does feel like Southgate is being readied for the job.

Gareth Southgate is favourite for the job

Southgate will be the worst choice possible.

Which makes it all the more likely!

Just keep Hodgson. There's quite an obvious progression in England's style under him. Let him see out the job with these players. If it's the same after 2018, then lose him.

Well he has been the England U21 manager for the last three years and took them to the finals last year where they performed fairly well but just didn't get the results.

It offers some continuity as he will be familiar with many of the younger players in & around the fringe of the squad.

Ranieri or Bilic will be next.

Ranieri doesn't like managing national sides. Especially not after Greece.

He'll be 70 by then so even if we shitout in 2018 I'd expect him to retire before he was pushed :D

If Bilic is even slightly interested we should be throwing a lot of money at him.

I meant already as of looking for a replacement. I guess the grass is greener everytime?

Grass may not be greener, but if we're to win L16 against someone like Hungary then lose to France he has to go. As that would be 3 major tournaments where he hasn't beaten a top nation and just 4 wins in 12 games :/

Andre Villas-Boas? English grandmother, managed high profile clubs won things like the Europa League at Porto, Russian league at Zenit and managed in the Premier League and plays some exciting football.

Just would he really want to come back to England?

Wasn't his first job the British Virgin Islands? Was replaced by Gary White (the guy who actually turned Guam into a credible footballing nation) after just a few months though.

I like him, but the media absolutely roasted him at both Chelsea and Spurs. He's be mad to want to take an even more high-profile English job without getting into the media good books first.

Pardew won't get it - he's not "well behaved" enough. I think the most consistent manager out of the lot is Allardyce, and I actually wouldn't mind giving him a shot at it. He's pretty organised and tactically aware, so I would give him a try.

Yeah, Greg Dyke already said that the manager didn't have to be English, but definetley needed Premiership/English management experience. I can't think of any genuine English candidates at the moment, too soon for Eddie Howe, who I hope could be a future England manager, but needs to keep progressing.

For me we are left with:

Slaven Bilic

Rafa Benitez

Mauricio Pochettino

It's highly unlikely Pochettino would take the role at the moment, but in 2 years time who knows? If it was after this Euro Championships I would go for Benitez.

Not sure Allardyce's strengths as a manager (budget signings, sports science, getting the best out of veterans and some very limited footballers) are really well suited to the England job, especially when you consider he might be an even more unpopular appointment than poor old Second Choice McClaren. Could definitely have used his set piece training yesterday though.

Think Eddie Howe has easily the most impressive CV of the rest of the listed names, but his chances of getting the job probably improve if England perform decently in the competition we're far from finished in and Hodgson gets to keep his job for another couple of years...

Even as a United fan I'd be happy with Benitez as an appointment: with his track record in cups he's surely got to try international management sooner or later.

This thread should be moved to the FF. This forum is all about the present and until 10th July!

Every time Bilic displays his utter contempt for Ian Wright's "Mr England" schtick he goes up in my estimation. I'd be very happy to have him as England boss. Neville and Southgate are not up to management, and I'd wager appointing either of them would be disastrous.

I'm of the opinion that we should always go for an English coach because if we don't have a good one it's the same system failing as having **** players.

England should hire Dunga now he has been sacked from Brazil's national team.

I'd like an English manager too. I think it kind of defeats the point of international football when you go foreign as it should be about testing your best. Whether that is players or managers.

Probably in the minority with that view. No idea who I'd actually pick as they're pretty much all terrible.

Southgate would be such a meh appointment. Neville would be absolute lunacy.

Not English so don't care

My guess is that the English FA will either keep Hodgy or choose a stop-gap like Southgate or Neville if they can't find a big name manager

Hell they might choose Southgate or Neville and if they fail miserably they'll go back to throwing money at big names

Just get all the English players in the PL to vote a captain who picks the teams. Playground style.

Bilic would be great.

Anyone else feel his insight and punditry is a breath of fresh air whenever he's on? contrast to Ian Wright's dumb rhetoric and silly facial expressions.

whoever it is' date=' i'm just glad we have someone as knowledgeable as Greg Dyke making the decision...[/quote']

Greg Dyke is leaving in the next few weeks isn't he? Therefore he wouldn't be making the decision on the next manager?

Yea Greg Dyke will have no say in new manager. Could be someone even worse making that choice /o\ I'd be open to someone like Mark Wurburton taking charge if they wanted to go down that sort of route.
