about time the FA did the right thing.
Now we're not even in Euro 2008 at all.
I'd love to know the total sum of salaries paid to the England players vs Croatia
Or even the England FA board. The whole organisation needs a clearout IMO.
Quote of the morning however, 'Nationality will not be an issue in choosing the next England manager'
The question being: Is José's ego big enough to take up this poisoned chalice?
Who would want this job?
"McClaren, 46, who had a four-year deal, is expected to be paid more than £2m in compensation"
Not bad for just over a year of travelling around the world watching footie. My heart bleeds for him
Me - if I fail they'll pay me off.
Even with no football mangerial experience, I think I could have done better yesterday than McLaren
Jose. Man, it would be perfect. Lippi?
Edit: For the record, these names are being branded about already...
Marchello (SP?) Lippi
Fabio Capello - First one to come out and publicly say he wants the job. Man these folks don't waste time.
So far thats a much better crop than the names that came up last time.
So that's why Lippi turned down Birmingham
For me, it has to be Mourinho
Nah, thats because Birmingham are *****.
Who voted for Harry Redknapp? Lol
God I hope the Birmingham board don't start thinking about McLaren
I think a decent goalkeeper is probably priority number two. I voted for Mourinho, but does anyone know if this is likely in real life? Is he lined up to manage a club at the moment, and would he even consider it?
New contender for quote of the morning (from the Times):
Apparently O'Neill is the favourite. Please let it be a joke. Apparently Jurgen Klinsmann is being bandied around too, as well as err, Shearer? It could work, I suppose.
We usually end up with the worst of the England rejects at the Wolves, but our Irish reject isn't doing too bad at the moment
At least the press conferences will be worth watching again.
But I doubt if Mourinho would take such a gamble with his career and didn't he say the only national team he'd be interested in would be Portugal?
Mind you, depends on the cash I guess. Always seems to change people's minds
As for the goalkeeper, I do feel a touch sorry McLaren in that respect. He made the decision to drop Robinson like 'everyone' wanted, he made the choice 'everyone' wanted in Carson and it still slapped him right in the mug.
Carson had a bad 1st half, but as a future No.1 he has to be the best prospect, what really scares me is the chance Lescott could be a regular centre back.
It was a stupid decision. I don't know why everyone rounded on David James, he's a solid keeper with great physical presence and pretty athletic, unlike Carson, who seemed to be allergic to the floor.
How long do you think they're going to spend on it? I wouldn't be surprised if they rushed it through just to end the whole "the FA are useless" news cycle with a new manager's privacy to intrude...
- what really gets me is....McClaren couldn't win anything with Sven in charge, so why on earth did they think he could take over and take England further...it was just never gonna happen IMO.
I think McClaren was got in on the cheap as the FA are still paying Sven a huge sum of money after terminating his contract early...i'm sure it was something like £4 million for two more years...! Now the same for McClaren, although not as much...!
I wonder, maybe someone from this forum may get the job as the FA probably don't have any money left after continuing to pay for their poor management issues....years later...!
I'll do it for say 500k per year - first class travel, luxury hotels and front row seats...lol...
Well it is about time he went. I am sorry but he just wasn't cut out for the job, what had he ever achieved in management?
Jose would have to be no 1. choice but he would want commitment from the FA aswell.
As for Carson being a future number 1, maybe, but I think Ben Foster has what it takes.
bring back mclaren lol
poor guy he was for the chop as soon as he got the job.. when do the players start to take the blame???
you should go 4 berti vogts ha ha ha
He was certainly set up for failure… I think he remains a good assistant — but no leader.
Yes, I know that's a bit like damning with faint praise.
who added the don't care option to the poll?
if people don't care why bother posting/voting?
Joke circulating around Scotland just now! Surely nobody will be offended?
What the difference between Lewis Hamilton & England football team ?
Lewis Hamilton still has his Mclaren!
I did. Interesting to see how many people there are like me, that although disappointed we're out of Euro 2008, don't really care that much and figure the whole idea of English football is a lost cause.
...almost a 3rd of people that have voted so far
Mourinho for manager!
I would of resigned if I was Steve... what a wally.
Too much politics and not enough football for me !
