There ARE other teams(we'd have no-one to play otherwise) and here's where all-comers can discuss the wider world of football......

'Appy 'Arry nailed on for manager.

And the England circus carries on.

despite it being 'Arry - and all that - I actually thinking he'll do 100x the job that Capello did (and hopefully have a bit of a proper clearout - ie. dumping Terry)

that said - does he really want it? it's a very different job from club management and the day-to-day interaction with players...

Well, I'm glad because I think he's working beyond his payscale, but I'll be proper miffed if the FA have paid him off. Didn't he renegotiate his deal immediately prior to the worst World Cup campaign in living memory?

Deleted my post so not too many running. I wonder if 'Arry'll get the job? He can't read or write and doesn't have a good command of the English language, thus eminently qualified. The FA should be asked who manages the team and why do we actually need a manager.? Oh, well. Onwards and downwards...unless Big Sam is in the frame. 8)
Don't try to be a great man. Just be a man and let history make up its own mind.

Oh, I've no doubts he'll do a better job than Capello. Apparently he has said it would be the greatest thing he could do, to manage England.

He could do it for the Euro's.......season will have finished then.

Good. He should ;
a). never have been appointed
b). have been booted out after the World Cup fiasco.

Now fck-off Capello & don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.

Best thing John Terry's ever achieved.

I could be hallucinating on Mexican lager but I'm sure I just heard Mike 'A Horse, A Horse' Ingham on R5 Live saying that Old Twitchy could do it for a couple of years and then hand over to a younger manager that he'd have groomed for the job, in particular Alan Shearer.

:shock: :roll: :hang:

Really? Was obvious the man was gutted by it. He lost interest in us after that.

He was never going to get it, but someone must have convinced him he would.

Anyway, Hodgson for England job, might give West Brom a chance of going down!

Totally agree tho I wonder if he will be the first part time England manager.Cant see him wanting to leave spurs before the end of the season.
Never been convinced its a full time post anyway

England nailed on for the Euro 2012 now. :twisted:

Just watch the media have a feeding frenzy over Harry. They will build him up to be the best manager in the world only to call for his head if we don't win it. "Redknapp the Radish has to go NOW!!"

I hope he gets the England job but I just don't want all the bullshit that goes with it (Of course we will).

I understand Chelsea have offered the services of AVB to the FA.
