I think the national coach should be the same nationality as the team to be honest.
But i look at the prem and who are the Englishmen managing sides
Gareth south gate not doing a great job at his club and not as i recall got very good judgement left Aston villa to "better" himself ????
Sam allardyce Newcastle and previously Bolton not really much to recommend him IMHO
Harry Redknapp good motivator does not seem bothered by personalities main against he is lampards uncle and Gerrard is a better player
Alan curbishley has had the chances but never left the safety of Charlton to try his hand at big time management
Steve coppell bloody good player and seems to be able to manage but he has never worked at a big club as yet shame cos i think he would be a good man u manager and should be spending time as Sir Alex number 2 IMHO
Gary meg son no way never an English manager
Steve Bruce very dodgy buys as brum manager this is the guy that wanted Clinton Morrison as opposed to Andy johnson if you please
Paul Jewell he left wigan to do what put the fire out at derby why did he not look for a number two position at a much bigger club??
when i looked at this sadly is it any wonder the FA went of an Italian??
