As everyone is aware he has experience at International level. Ireland has not been blessed with quality international managers but Mick was certainly among the best. His achievement in Japan in getting a fairly ordinary bunch of players as far as he did was extraordinary. One of the comments that many Irish fans I think would agree with me on is that he would have been best served if he had the team that big Jack had and big Jack would have been best served by the team Mick had.
I don't know that he would want the job and it appears that HR has the position for the asking, but I have no doubt he would do well as well for England as he did for Ireland.

Isn't our national teams style of play boring enough?

I think WIL is right about how Mick is viewed in Ireland- except by Man U supporters. Statistically- and actually- he is the best manager ireland has had. I was in Japan for the World Cup- great! he was hounded out of the job by Eamon Dunphy and co who were all pro- Roy keane. Keane did not come back afterwards anyway. MM was a real loss to Ireland, but not convinced about his potential as manager of England. He is such a divisive character wherever he goes! he had Ireland playing very good football and gave us some great times though.

Don't be stupid - Jez would be rubbing his hands together at the thought of compensation

Would never happen - there would be a nationwide uproar.

Didn't Downing get his real england break once McClaren took charge? Could imagine Jarvis would get more caps aswell as Henry and Kites if Mick ever landed the role - a pipedream mind you...

Yes but it would improve Wolves style of play

I would rather have Fred West at the helm.

That my friend is what you call being up McCarthy's backside. $$$$ing hell. Personally I'd rather see my 2 year old Jack Russell dog as manager.

I must admit when Bernstein siad that the next England manager would preferably be English or British. It had me thinking, will Mick be on the FA's shortlist?!

Saw the headline and got all excited until I realised it was a question and not a statement of fact.:D

Could be one of many things Sharples. Sarcasm, wishful thinking, a faint hope or a genuine belief.

If it saw Mick leave I'm sure some would be happy.

To make sure they get the message, I've considered Mick's qualifications for managing at the highest level and faxed the FA a blank piece of paper. :top:

I'm not sure MM would be a good England manager. There are far too many egos in the England team that will be put out by his straight talking.
