It looks like Luiz Felipe Scolari is going to be the next England manager. The FA has offered him the job and all they need is his signature now.
A lot of ppl have opinions about whether he is right for the job, how the next manager should be english etc.
Personally I think The FA should pick the right man for the job no matter what nationality he is. Ideally he would be english – just seems better if the England team had an English manager. However there English managers available are just not good enough. I think we could have had a fantastic manager in Martin O’Neil (or Hoddink – but of course The FA were too slow getting him). However I think Scolari is an excellent choice. He is passionate and jumps about (which we want). He won the world cup with Brazil in 2002 and took Portugal to the finals in Euro 2004. Some ppl say anyone could win world cup with Brazil. Not necessarily. You need a good manager with good tactics. Sven manages a great team and we still lose to teams like N. Ireland and generally play crap. Real Madrid on paper should be winning loads (certainly a year or 2 ago) but they had unperformed – the manager must be a factor!
Sven has shown in the past that his tactics are just terrible. Scolari has shown his tactics are excellent and makes the right subs at the right time. Sven always seems to bring on players like Hargreves!
I am so glad that it looks like McLaren isnt going to get the job. It just seemed like cause he was Svens No.2 (pun intended) and had a few good results recently he was favourite.
