10 Candidates England Should Consider To Replace Sam Allardyce

It was obviously a sham, something Sam Allardyce would regret for the rest of his life. The former England manager was recorded giving advice to reporters, disguised as Far East business men to get around rules about third party ownership of players. sam-allardyce_ea0cc274-852d-11e6-ad59-fe0cd67003de

He was thereby sacked, just 67 days after taking over what he regarded was his dream job, making the senior managerial role vacant, with Gareth Southgate taking temporary charge. We therefore run a rule on the coaches England should consider to replace the big man;

  1. Harry Redknapp; harry-redknapp-qpr_3236513

He had been considered the forerunner in the past with Fabio Capello beating him to the position in 2008 and Roy Hodgson beating him to it in 2012 and now might just be the time for Harry Redknapp for Harry Redknapp to stake his claim for the position. His curriculum vitae isn’t all that convincing but his teams are definitely known to put up a fight. A candidate that would definitely win a vote of confidence among the English footballing fans.

  1. Glenn Hoddle; ut_hkthath4eww8x4xmdoxojbkmtt9rt

He last coached a team in 2006 but definitely has an experience with the National team having previously handled them between 1996-1999. His team obviously played good football and is not scared to drop big players when they are not performing. The former Chelsea and Tottenham manager has always thrown his hat in the ring anytime England wants a manager and now might just be the time for him to take over the helm of affairs.

  1. Steve Bruce; steve_bruce_hull_city

He is obviously one of the few good English managers around and narrowly lost out to Sam Allardyce in the running for the position just some months ago. He resigned from Hull City after guiding them to the premier league in the summer and will definitely get a strong look in as the FA search for a replacement for Sam Allardyce.

  1. Laurent Blanc; manchester_united_premier_league_champions_league_laurent_blanc-370670

The former French manager was axed in the summer by PSG due to his failure in the Champions league, even after winning three French league titles in a row and looks like one of the best few foreign managers around if England were to look out for one. His experience of managing the French National team would also be a valuable asset for the Three Lions.

  1. Alan Pardew; gs_pardew_30100_3089895b

The English FA will definitely be tempted to keep an eye on the Crystal Palace manager and he will definitely be a strong contender for the position due to his experience in the top flight. He did a very good job at Newcastle and although he’s struggled with Crystal Palace, Pardew remains one of the best English managers around and one that would be seriously considered for the position.

  1. Eddie Howe; howe_main_2

I’m definitely a big fan of Eddie due to the marvelous job he’s done with Bournemouth. If it were left to me, he’d be one of my top three candidates to consider. What he lacks in experience, he covers in concepts and beliefs which have helped him thus far. He also comes across as someone who is very intelligent. The question right now would be whether he would want to leave what he is currently building in Bournemouth.

  1. Arsene Wenger; arsene-wenger-arsenal_3391151-in

Really? Indeed. Early morning British papers have it that the English FA are ready to wait till the summer to move for the Frenchman. The question is, how patient can they be, because they’ll obviously be putting their World cup qualification status at risk. I definitely don’t think they would, as they definitely are not even sure the French man is ready to leave Arsenal at the end of the season.

  1. Jurgen Klinsmann; jurgen-klinsmann-flights-in

He is currently the manager of the United States senior men’s National team and has never hidden his desire to one day manage the three lions and now might just be the time. He has also has an experience of managing National teams, having previously managed Germany whom he led to the semi-finals of the 2006 World Cup and most recently led USA to claim their CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2013.

  1. Vincente Del Bosque; delbosque_2

The 65 years old has won all sorts of trophy required of a top manager from league titles to Champions league titles to European Cups and was in charge of Spain’s revolution in World Cup. The good thing for England is that he is available. The question will be whether he will be willing to take charge of the English National team as he would bring a total revolution to English football, howbeit positively or negatively, if England were to look out, he’d definitely be a frontrunner for the position.

  1. Roberto Mancini; roberto-mancini-in

Definitely another high profile manager available to be considered. The Italian definitely has a wealth of managerial experience required for the position if England were to look out for a foreigner. He led Inter Milan to league title and also led Manchester City to their first ever league title which gives him an added advantage given his understanding of the English game.
