England need 'the special one'

England need 'the special one'

Jose Mourinho is the man that England need to turn to! Not my vote, yours - although these findings from NinjaTim's poll are thoughts I could share, but he would not be my first choice pick to be honest.

I do like the special one and do think he could do a job for England, so the thought of him taking over from Spineless Steve does appeal to me, but then again so does the thought of Mike Bassett!

It would be nice to have an English, or British manager again if/when the equally as Spineless FA decide to part company with McClaren and Martin O'Neil has always topped my list for this - but having received some insight into the man from a Villa fan maybe I am not so sure?

To be honest, as much as I would like O'Neil if we did go for a foreign manager again, which would not worry me too much I do not think that we could go wrong by putting Arsene Wenger in charge. The fella knows the English game inside and out and is a world class manager who I feel could work wonders with our band of underachieving 'superstars'...

What the poll asked - Next England Boss? It'll happen sooner or later so let's pre-empt the pundits with a poll.

How you voted - Jose Mourinho 35%, Mike Bassett (couldn't do any worse) 17%, Martin O'Neill 14%, Arsene Wenger 10%, Harry Redknapp 5%, Guus Hiddink 3%, Sir Trevor Brooking 3%, Terry Venables 3%, Sam Allardyce 3%, Phillipe Scolari 2%, Steve Coppell 2%, Stuart Pearce 1%, Peter Taylor 1%, Tony Adams 1%

Current Poll - What a run we are currently on, can we continue this against West Ham this weekend.

Nice and simple this time, all you have to do is make your predictions on the outcome of the match with West Ham - will we win, lose or draw, that is what pompeyrug wants to know with this - 'what will we do against West Ham at the weekend?' Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

The first thing Jose would do upon appointment would be to transfer Drogba from Ivory Coast for a mere £35m.

If only you could do that ... we might even qualify for Euro 2008 ! - I voted for Mike Bassett as I don't think spineless will be sacked this soon and when he does (eventually) go there will be different names in the frame BUT... if he is sacked and we could appoint anybody irrespective of whether we think they would accept or not, it would have to Wenger - The mans a genius

if we took the foreign approach again - which wouldnt worry me too much - then wenger would certainly top the list, he would be a great england manager im sure.

I agree Wenger or the special one are needed to turn our fortunes around and get to grips with the over inflated egos of certain England players.

We need a few miracles as well as 'The Special One'. Has a phone line to the 'Big Boss' upstairs?

why cant the FA realise that they have one of the worst managers in football appointed at England and one of the best managers in the world sitting at home unemployed, i truly hate the FA, with making stupid decisions. im afraid that the world of football is becoming a more money making buisness, with talk of premiership games being played in teh US! scandelous!
