Capello does! Makes it nice and easy for the Fa then doesn't it - give him the job now and let him get his feet under the desk!

I very much like the idea of Capello from the perspective that he never panders to player's egos or expectations. He may not always get it right (although he does more often than not) but you can be sure what he does he does because he considers it the best thing for the team.

Amen Brother Loz.

:lol: Not what I recall you saying when Gallas was being pushed out wide to accommodate Ricky!

True enough Lozzer. But with Bridgey injured and Del Oh-No a no-no, sometimes the decision was inevitable.

All managers have favourites, but IMO Jose could rarely be accused of pandering to a player's ego or reputation. Just ask Mr Shevchenko.

And, in the final analysis, he got it right way more than he got it wrong.

Other than the Carvalho/Gallas situation the only other time I can think of (and I know you will disagree) was Drogba in his first season. For me he should have been left out more than he was however probably fair to say I may have got that one slightly wrong in the long run icon_wink.gif

Are you really sure about that Loz,

you never know, Crespo might have started scoring and turned into the prolific marksman that Drogs has....mind you we would have had to pass him the ball from the wings or midfield sometimes icon_lol.gif

I will always regret the fact that things didn't work out with Crespo as well as I'm sure most of us hoped/expected they would. Crespo is a joyous striker to watch and, at his best, a master of his craft. Unfortunately for a variety of reasons (well three to be exact - one that he, and his family, never settled in London, two that he was not selected as often as he maybe should have been and three that we played a style of football that just wasn't suited to his kind of striker) we never saw the best of him other than very occasionally.

Agreed mate

all jokes aside I think if his family could have endured life in England (cant blame them for prefering sunnier shores) we could have had a

superb player on our hands,

That Goal from 40 yards out against Arsenal (ok may have been offside) and the Header against Fulham (best header of a ball we've had for ages) stick in my mind,

Really although he coped better he must be feeling sorry for Sheva and knowing what its like to play in a system that doesn't suit,

I think he conducted himself pretty well through the comings and goings and that is something I do like to see,

he never complained and managed to score against the Mancs in the CL as well.

quality player, quality bloke.

And that goal away at Wigan that saved our arse on the first game of the year

Just hope a German doesn't get it. I'm all for multi-culturalism - and if you knew me you'd understand why .... but I just cant bear the idea of a German being in charge of England. An Italian ok, a Portuguese ok, even a Frenchman. But the words penalty shoot out and Germany just seem to do something really bad !!! and I don't want one at the helm.

Just hope that the FA at least formally offer the job to Jose... he knows the England game .... he knows the players .... he is a winner .... he is talented .... he has a wealth of international experience .... and he is available.

Mate, I think he was one of my all time favourite Chelsea players, even in the short time he was here he left such an impression on me. If we could find a striker like him who liked to live in England, it would be incredible. he also seemed genuinely upset about leaving us, but family has to come first I suppose.

I'm with you on not a German, sorry but that is too much to stomach.

As for Jose, I think he would be mad to take it, he is too young for international management, he would have nothing really to do for about 2 years but meaningless friendlies and then the odd qualifier.

The press would crucify him no matter what he did it would never be good enough, poke into his private life and if he failed then his career would be permanently blemished by the experience, see Sven, Hoddle, Mcclaren et al.

I'm sure he could do a good job but it's for someone far older who has already done everything they want to do in club management and does not fancy being with players every day on the training ground - does that really sound what Jose wants now in his career?

I think O'Neill despite his protestations will take the job if it is offered to him. You can tell his is dying to be officially asked.

But it's the ultimate job for getting media attention. Mourinho might like that.

Was joking about this with a friend who said he could pick Gerrard for England just to play him out of position. I said, to really piss Benitez off, just play him in the centre and make comments like "only an idiot would play him wide". And also ignore all requests from Rafa to only play his players for 45mins... Would be funny, all things considered, to see Mourinho take over England.
