Good choice. And thank fuck it's not Mclaren. Any thoughts?
Don't the xenophobic press get a say?
I'm sure they will...Bob Wilson's already claimed it should have been Stuart Pearce because of his "passion". And the fact City have lost six of the last seven. I might have added that second bit.
but I suppose the choice wasn't great. Definitely not Mclaren though. On the plus side Scolari looks like The Godfather.
no Big Face McClaren!!!
I realised yesterday that it's not just xenophobic hysteria: if we are going to bother playing against each other as countries, then there is quite an argument for having an English manager.
Having said that, we're all shit.
Come on the brazinglish!
scolari is a bit of a lucky manager. who wouldnt have won with brazil int he last world cup? and portugal were terrible at the euros
like everyone, i would've liked an english manager. but then again, it doesn't matter where the manager comes from, we haven't won it since 1966.
This is our year with IKEA boy.
Aproximado, o philster!
We need help.
getting people in because they've 'won things' isn't always a recipe for success. His voice irritates me - I think its because they couldn't get O'Neill in all honesty as clearly his wife isn't well enough, hence also Roeder being seriously considered at Newcastle
So to Prolerise: Scolari was 2nd choice.
Big Sam didnt get it
english coaches have been shite for a very long time, why did we go for Sven in the first place?
i think big phil has the air of success and self belief we need. if someone can convince people we can win, we will win. man for man we have the best eleven going, seriously.
and as people say, scolari should be brave enough to change things, whereas mclaren would've carried on as they are.
would be exactly the same as sven. we'd never lose a qualifier, but not have the intimidating flair to get through a cup.
we don't lose to brazil because they have a better team, we lose because they're brazil.
i'm ashamed no-one else appreciated this comment!
you can't polish a turd can you?
England has its best group of players since the late sixties. All they need from a manger is experience of success. What they don't need is a media whore who bangs on about passion and being English all the damn time. It is sensible to choose someone who can barely speak English.
apparantly he has a habit of punching journalists and once he was asked to compare Rooney to Pele, to which he replied "one is black and one is white"
He is hard as nails, and that's what we need for our pampered prima-donnas.
Hmmm, I prophesise Beckham retiring from international football after this world cup
i think he will be a breath of fresh air, can't wait for the war to start with jose morinho to start. and check out this pic
bothered. Hopefully that will prompt Sean Wright-Phillips to move to liverpool or spurs or someone and become the best winger in the history of everything.
This makes me happy. Scolari was my first choice from the beginning.
