How important is this for everyone?
The national team, obv.
considering the amount of threads regarding this since last night.
I couldn't see any discussion of whether Englishness matters or not..
as whether the Prince of Wales has athlete's foot
But seeing as there arent any decent English managers then I want a foreign.
If they give the job to Pearce or Alladyce I am moving country, I swear.
it was Redknapp, because at least that would be a laugh, but otherwise I would be gone.
It's about, y'know, representing your country, no?
and then laughing
who are these people?
perhaps I should actually do some work today
Until they say Martin O Neil.
That would be hilarious. "yes, we have fond a foreign manager with a premiership past that we think everone will be well aware of......"
I wouldn't mind Coppell. I like him, I think he's a good manager. There's no way he could cope with the stress of being England manager though.
and im certainly not a xenophobe, or actually english for that matter
the manager is an important part of the team, yes/no?
and the team have to be english, or at least vaguely english?
so why isnt it compulsory for the manager to be english?
i gather that there arent many decent candidates, but i'm sure if there were it'd be the popular move with the fans too
I therefore conclude we have a lack of suitable English candidates and have to abroad.
(I hate that having so many threads I have to keep repeating arguments!)
