Harry Redknapp gets up thinking he might go to jail but goes to bed thinking he might be England manager.

England will probably appoint an interim manager until the end of the season. Somone like Stuart Pearce, Trevor Brooking or Dave Penney.

After everyone assuming it'll be Redknapp, and every radio phone-in for the last however-many years being full of people saying the next England manager has to be English, it'd be quite funny if they appointed O'Neill with Neil Lennon as his assistant.

Harry Redknapp, by his own admission, is 'not a tactics man'. Capello gets pilloried in the press for not being up the the job; he's won Serie A six times, La Liga twice, the European Cup, Super Cup etc etc. Redknapp has won the FA cup once and got Bournemouth promoted when the cup final was still broadcast in black and white.

The England team is not something to be proud of. Not while players like Steven Gerrard, John Terry, Ashley Cole, Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney and, to a lesser extent, Joey Barton are anywhere near it. A shameful group of players who could well be led to the world's second most prestigious international tournament by a man who has the tactical nous of a garden snail.

The sooner England get knocked out this summer the better, so we can all get on with watching some decent football.

I like Redknapp. to me he is the perfect candidate. I have total belief in him, he has done a great job at Tottenham raising them from an average side to one of the best in the country and he also changed the fortunes of Portsmouth too.
He is english which to me plays a massive part, i want someone who has the passion and the drive for england to finally have success (since 1966). No foreign manager can bring the success in my opinion.

I cant wait for the summer and for the Euro's. Everyone should be behind England, wether you believe we can win it or not.

Summer football = Shamrock Rovers, who were knocked out of the Europa League at the same stage as Harry's Spurs. :blink:

I don't think that Redknapp will take it, and if he does he is insane.
He has been through the mill with the Press for years, and has publicly stated he is happy to lie to the Press. He is on a hiding to nothing. Courts only focus on a small aspect and I think they will have mountains of ammunition tucked away.

And as others have said, he has achieved a lot at Spurs in a small space of time and that should be respected, but he has achieved nought.

It's not just the Press though, they are merely mouthpiece for the general malaise that is right through the country, sniping at anyone that does not share the smae viewpoint as them and an absolute over reaction when something does not go right, and looking for someone or somrthing to blame. It is a respect that is rapidly disappearing from our once great country, some of it deserves to be stripped away, but it has gone too far the other way.

Redknapp's achievements would soon be forgotten, not only by the Press, but a vocal minority given far too much emphasis and limelight.
It should be the bnest man for the job, not just the best Englishman, that is accepting mediocraty.

One of the major problems with International Management over club management is the lack of day-to-day involvement with the players. An International manager has so little "face time" (sorry for the management speak)with the players, that whe they do meet up on the rare occasions for either Friendlies or Qualifiers - IMO, you need someone who is an uber-personality. A real man-management specialist.
It's such a short amount of time to try to create a team-spirit, to work with individual players and foster a team ethos - you need someone who can hit the ground running, and is famed for short turn-a-rounds in clubs fortunes.

That's why IMO, the real viable candidate isn't dodgy 'Arry at all - it's Martin O'Neill.

Look at Sunderland again this season - immediate impact. The same underperforming players are now flying under him. The same happened at Celtic, Leicester....Wycombe also.

I actually don't think being English is the be-all & end all. A proper grasp of the English language is a must, but Nationality shouldn't really matter if you're the best candidate.


Glass-half empty moment though - it won't matter who is the manager, we'll still be shite & go out at the first available knock-out stage!!
