Please not Pearce. Literally the only positive thing about him as a manager or coach is the fact he's English. He's already failed to do anything with the English youngsters at U21 level and he's basically unproven as a manager at any level. Has to be Harry, no-one else worth a shout.

Look at how many new players Capello introduced. Far, far more than the idiot Englishman who preceded him.

Pearce is a rubbish manager. I really don't think he has the tactical nous at this level. Nice guy and great with helping the kids develop but no more than that.

Good for Capello. At least he has some principles even if you buggars dont agree with him. The FA like most things they do handled it badly.
The irony is that Capello leaves at a time when the spirit of the team is much stronger as opposed to being backed all the way by the FA when things were abysmal.

It's only a few friendlies until the end of the season. And then he'd be just England at the Euros and then he could decide between Spuds and England.

Not that I want Pearce, but the FA's hands will be tied, unless Harry agrees to take over right away, even on a part time basis. But I don't think he will, but if he accepts after Euro 2012, they'll have to make an interim appointment, which rules out poaching someone from a club. And with Pearce being part of Capello's team as well as the U21 coach, he'll be the head honcho at Euro 2012, possibly working alongside someone with more international experience, probably foreign.

This is excellent news. I've never liked the spitter being in charge. Now England can get a motivator in, a better man manager who will hopefully pick a team that's more than the sum of it's parts. Redknapp is the obvious choice. Perhaps he can go part time until the end of the season and then takeover fully for the Euro's?

You know, tournament football is not the same as qualifying football. Sven was great at the latter, not so good when it came to the summer.

I'd sound Sir Alex Ferguson out, to see if he fancies another crack at a tournament on a one off basis. Terry should do the right thing and remove his divisive presence from the scene.

We need someone with a proven track record of getting under performing teams and players playing to their strengths and capabilities whilst being able to build a strong team spirit and work ethic.

Capello has had his say:

"They really insulted me and damaged my authority. What really hit me and forced me to take this decision was the fact the much-vaunted Anglo-Saxon sense of justice, as they are the first to claim that everyone is innocent until proven guilty.

In Terry's case, they gravely offended me and damaged my authority at the head of the England side, effectively creating a problem for the squad. I have never tolerated certain crossing of lines, so it was easy for me to spot it and take my decision to leave."

In fairness to him, I'm not sure how much my principles are worth but £6 million might have me thinking.

What a turd. This was the bloke who came in promising not to be swayed in his team choices and pick players on merit....and then did exactly the same as his predecessor and resorted to picking the same over-rated players.
He presided over a terrible world cup, then has made the same mistakes since.
This is the bloke who promised discipline and has failed to deal with virtually every problem thrown at him.
Good riddance.....he talked a good game but didn't play it.

It has to be Redknapp part time and then Full time at the end of the season.

I'd b happy to forfeit the Euros on the basis he brings the youngsters through (Smallng, Jones, Cahill, Walker etc) and with the tournament experience under their belt takes them two years older and wiser into Brazil.

I'd genuinely believe we had a chance of becoming World Champions then.

God this $$$$ing brilliant news
A truly terrible manager who has made me really think about whether its worth supporting england

One terrible world cup where we as a nation got the big wake up call that has been coming for ages, He takes Terrys captaincy armband for one accusation of cheating but will let him keep it over serious claims about racism, Give me a break!

His tactics are non existent, his methods old fashioned and he has dragged out countless embarrassing dramas with his alliance to Terry truly mystifying, he (terry) has done no favours either dragging the england team into the mud over his own self importance,

I dont care if the new england manager is english, italian french hell he can be from bloody pluto for all I care as long as he puts talented youngsters ahead of over inflated egos and has us playing again like the germans or the spanish aside from the french we have been a laughing stock of world football

Good riddance.

Whatever happens with England between now and the end of the season is irrelevant. Innocent Harry is the man to lead us in the Euros. He knows all the players well, in fact he probably put bids in for half of them on transfer deadline day, and will get them playing without fear. IF Harry gets the job I will feel more optimistic about our chances of success than at any time in the last 20 years!

'Arry will be a massive disaster in my honest opinion.

How many managers have a track record at international level? It's totally irrelevant. Wheeling and dealing will be replaced with selecting players who can bring something different to the team.

Many players have played the best football of their career's under Harry - just look how he turned Spurs around. He understands the English football culture, footballers seem to want to play for him and most importantly he won't dazzle the players with dossiers and ridiculous formations, he'll just get them to go out and play as a team that are proud to wear the Three Lions.

With this hes got to build, got to contend with alot more. At Spurs everything was in place for him, they just needed a kick up the $$$$, with Pompey it was loads of cash that didnt exist. With England he'd have to be in charge of a 5 year long haul to bring through and develop a team, something he hasn't done and has no indication he can do.

That combined with his ravings about the Old Guard still having there place, i'd bet my house on Gerrard and Lampard lining up again at the Euros. Not the coach to take us forward, just that hes the highest placed English manager that people want him.

Well he's hardly going to state the old guard are past it!

He's shown he can get the best out of players, young and old. I think too much importance is attached to building a side - it's more important to get the best out of what's available at the time. I remember three years ago lots of pundits saying Arsenal were going to dominate the PL as their youngsters grew up... It only needs a couple of injuries and suddenly the team that has been built carefully collapses like a pack of cards.

I'd prefer Pardew, what he has done at Newcastle is amazing! He's built a young, talented, skillful that plays nice football in a solid formation. I think he'd give the younger players more of a chance whereas Arry will probably stick to the likes of Lampard, Parker, Barry, Rio ect.

Hodgeson would also be a nice appointment and would really leave them lot in the $$$$!

+ Mourinho would miss club football too much to be an international manager imo so I'd rule him out.

It probably has to be Redknapp for the Euros, with Pearce taking the next friendly before the end of the season, as they can't really afford to allow a new long-term appointment to use the Euros as part of his bedding in period.

Just as Joe Mercer acted as caretaker between Ramsey & Revie, but didn't want the job long-term because of his age, Redknapp may not want the added stress & hassle at his time of life.

Following the Euros, the FA would then have time for a considered selection process, with perhaps someone like Pardew being a better long-term option, although obviously success at the Euros would put Redknapp in the driving seat if he did want the job.

Sir Bobby Robson was the last one to win a European trophy in 1997.



Only three English managers have ever managed in the group stages of the Champions League. Ray Harford, Sir Bobby Robson and Harry Redknapp.



Since 1990 only three English managers have won the FA Cup. Terry Venables, Joe Royle and Harry Redknapp.



Since 2000, only two English managers have ever finished in the top 4 of the Premier League. Sir Bobby Robson and Harry Redknapp.



Mick McCarthy was the last English manager to manage at a major finals in 2002.

If the FA are looking for an English manager who has actually achieved anything, it's going to be a very short list.

Has to be Hiddink for me.

I read that 'Why England lose...' book that was suggested on here a while ago and it basically eulogises Hiddink. I think we went down the right route appointing somebody who has succeeded everywhere with Capello but his lack of international experience was telling.

Hiddink would be the best of both worlds for me. Failing that, Hodgson. He's managed around the world, he's very talented and he's got experience of international management.

For what it's worth:

Capello as England boss


Highest win percentage in England national coach history (66.7%)
Oversaw England's greatest ever World Cup qualification campaign (9 wins, 1 loss).
England finished as top scorers of the UEFA Zone during that campaign, scoring 6 more than Spain.
Undefeated in qualification for Euro 2012.
Undefeated in all games for 2011.

Capello was a good manager tactically, man management I have no idea, Im sure he probably left that to Pearce. The problem with his football is he played possession football which requires patience. Much like AVB at Chelsea.

In this country we want Barcelona or nothing! Its all blood and thunder or total football, no allo$$$$e for in between, most fans would rather see a ball randomly boxed than see another 20 passes to work a better opportunity. I still cringe at the thought of Capello’s first game when England fans booed the team for keeping the ball in the 40th minute at 0-0.

Arry would be a good mix of Capello and what England fans want. My only worry with him is there doesn’t seem to be a plan b with how he plays. Think that might get found out in the euro’s if he takes the job. I would go Hiddink though, Arry is the most successful English manager with one $$$$ing trophy which is laughable, Hiddink has won a lot more and understands English football too.

That said, I couldn’t give a $$$$ anyway.

You must be joking. The biggest job he got was Liverpool last season and he couldn't handle it. The England job would kill him, literally. Have you seen him rubbing his face frantically and banging his head against the dugout. The man couldn't stand the heat of the England job, especially if he got off to a bad start.

Redknapp is the obvious choice, of course, but I have my reservations about him taking it on in a part time role for the Euros. I think he'd have like to come in under a clean slate, taking on the mess we're in now, and not being able to turn it round for the Euros would heap a whole load of pressure on him before he's even had time to get started properly.

Pearce/Hiddink part time would do me. The only problem is Pearce's Olympic commitments.

Terry is a has been and should never be near an English football team again never alone captain.

It is time to get rid of the old guard and sweep in the new.

English manager in the top 6. Always happens. Curbishley, Allardyce, Hodgson being linked with the managers job before when they were in the ascendency. Unfortunately, an English manager doing well in the Prem is so unusual, it doesn't take a lot of achievement to be in the frame.

Though I've got to say I disagree. 'Building a squad' based on a good team ethic and ethos is what Harry does best. He plays attractive football. He gets the best out of his players, knows the English players well, he has probably sat watching our pathetic attempts (such as the last WC) on many occasions and thought to himself "I know what I'd do in this situation". We need a motivator, someone with character, someone who makes players fight for that shirt (not that they should need to be told that, but you suspect that some or most do unfortunately). I would personally only be happy if either Pearce or Redknapp got the job.

That isn't racist IMO. The manager of the English national team should be English, no questions asked. If the players have to be from here, then the manager should also. I cannot think of another top footballing nation that has a foreign coach. It's actually quite embarrassing that England does/did have a foreign manager.
