The future England manager - what do you think?
Wow – who woke up yesterday and thought Fabio Capello wouldn’t be England manager when they went back to sleep?
It’s four months and two days until a Rooney-less, captain-less and manager-less England take on France in the first of their Euro 2012 group games, and once again the national team are going into an international competition in turmoil.
There are two options as far as we can see in the 606 office – the logical one is to appoint a full-time manager now; and then there’s the option of hiring a caretaker until the end of the competition before a different man steps in permanently (whatever that means in 21st century football).
You’ve been leaving your opinions on our Facebook and Twitter pages in droves. Some have suggested Ian Holloway should be given a go for the Euros as his motivational skills could drive the team to glory.
Could Guss Hiddink – a man who took South Korea to the World Cup semi-finals – sprinkle his magic over England for one tournament before moving aside?
Or is it the heir apparent, Harry Redknapp’s time to step into the breach – a man who seems to have the support of players such as Rio Ferdinand and pundits like Gary Lineker.
The obvious extenuating circumstance surrounding him is his position at Tottenham, who still have a chance to win their first league title since 1961 and the manager’s first.
Would Redknapp be able to stay at Spurs until the end of the season and take England to the Euros afterwards?
Does Harry even deserve the job – he’s only won one top piece of silverware with a club, that being the FA Cup with Portsmouth.
The FA have confirmed they are drawing up a shortlist of candidates but with Redknapp’s recent record being so strong – he seems like the obvious man to be given a go.
