    Englands New Manager ?

    When the inevitable happens - After the Croatia game at Wembley and Steve McLaren is relieved of his duties as English team coach - the media will again start the speculating on the person succeeding McLaren. The English newspapers in particular will be licking their lips for another piece of juicy flesh for them to feed off. Mourhino’s name will mentioned but the man has far more sense than to hand himself to the #$%$ press vultures who will shout for him to be installed but would be just as quick to tear him apart as soon as they feel.

    The fact of the matter is – no-one in their right mind would take the job - It doesn’t matter if it was all the best rolled into one. The English manager position is only target bait for the press. Go back even to Alf Ramsey who won the WC then a bit later remember the treatment they gave Bobby Robson?, ‘Turnip’, Keegan, Erikson etc.

    I’m not really a fan of Mclaren but he’s been there for the taking. Realistically the position has been reduced to ‘not even with a barge pole’ status and makes England the laughing stock of international soccer

    What I reckon will happen will be a is: long list of candidates (even David Beckham Alan Shearer) all refusing and to end the embarrassment and after so may knock backs over a period of months they will hand the position to Stuart Pearce( nothing at all against Pearce) but he will be the only one to save their blushes.

    English international football all F***** up because its the gutter press
