'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hangry Harry


FA chief executive Brian Barwick flew to Lisbon yesterday for talks with Soclari after getting permission of the Portuguese FA.

Redknapp said: 'I'm disappointed. I wanted one of the English boys to get a chance. Foreign managers seem to have a monopoly here at the moment. I can't see an English manager managing England in the near future. But I'm sure Scolari's a good manager.'

Ex-Pompey striker Mick Quinn reckons Scolari is the best candidate for the job.

Quinn said: 'Brazil were on their knees when Scolari took over. It didn't even look like they were going to qualify for the World Cup four years. But then they won it.'

As in every case, it should be the 'Best man' for the job. And.... in Scoleri i reckon that they have the best available at this time. This also gives the best young english managers 4 years to learn some more and get experience.

who will be in the future fen? i think that curbs and mclaren won't get better than they are witout moving to a big club. I think that scolari will be destroyed by the media

Scolari is an excellent manager and has won the WC with Brazil, taken Portugal to Euro Finals. He does come with the best experience at top level football. The experience he lacks is handling the press as he can't speak any English at present. He would need a very good assitant to help him out. If we go for the foreign coach, I will wish him all the best and support England. (May be at Wembley some day)

Who cares what he is as long as he can communicate...there in lies the problem. With Brazil and Portugal it's the same language. Making the players understand him will be the hardest of all. Let's run with him and see how he goes...after all we are looking for success and if he finally brings it back home it will be a good choice.
