I think it'd be better to let him take us to the World Cup now. It's too late to change. But after the World Cup, since the next England manager "has to be English" McClaren is an obvious successor. Big Sam is good but i don't think so. Curbs?
I'm not to sure about any of the three. Bryan Robson would be good IMO.
Steve Mclaren has been Sven's second hand man and hasn't exactly done anything.

Missed the match, reading the reviews. Apparently Defoe was useless, and our defense was brittle.

I know players can have bad matches, but 4-1 to Denmark? Although I was working and haven't seen the game, it seems to me that we severely lack a midfielder to cover the CHs, as Ferdinand and Terry are too inept to do this. Terry may get his arse kissed by the media, but I'm sure he'd be exposed at Chelsea minus Makalele. You should already know what I think about Ferdinand. I'm all for playing Carragher and King if, as I get the impression, the current two aren't getting their arses in gear. Of course, as I haven't seen the match, I could be completely mistaken. Either way, Gerrard or Lampard have to go.
Striker-wise, I think we've seen the reasons for Owen's inclusion over Defoe. He's a bright spark, but we need experience up front - especially considering what escapades Rooney gets up to. The awareness of Beckham-Owen/Gerrard-Owen are fully established.

Ultimately, this has to be mainly down to the manager not doing his homework, not putting his balls in the line, and not making the important decisions - other than how to spend his extortionate wage cheque.

Just proves how there really aren't any decent candidates for the job.

As a bigger Liverpool than England fan, get you filthy mits off him! I don't doubt he could do the job. Here's an idea... give Fowler the job!

Screw this how about you all nominate me for England manager? I propose we reduce the risk of David James going in goal again by playing him up front next to Rooney

Ferdinand and Terry were tight in the first half. Then Neville, Terry and Robinson came off for Glen, Carra and James in the 2nd half. The understanding between the defence seemed instantly lost... the downfall seemed imminent. You could blame Sven for this, but really it was due to how rarely this defensive group had played together, the collapse was understandable really. You need a unit that understands exactly where and how their teamates will be playing and this can only really be achieved from playing together. It was just a friendly and was a largely untested defensive group. So I'm not too worried defensively.

Attacking wise the main problem was the lack of tempo and intent from England. It has always been Sven's style and it sux. They largely rely on moments of individual brillaince for their goals, which is not the way to go! They played the ball between defence for far too much of the game, without caring about getting the ball forward, ended up costing them 2 of their goals. I was also deeply dissapointed at how un-motivated the players were. This is directly the managers fault imo, he has to get the players fired up! The few who were motivated, Rooney for example, was clearly due to self motivation.

Came back from inter-railing round europe and saw an 1860 Munich game in the Allianz Arena while I was out there, was absolutely amazing!
