So much for the FA wanting to appoint an Englishman or a Briton. It looks like Luiz Felipe Scolari is going to be the new England manager. The FA have just offered him the job.
I presume that Martin O’Neill didn’t want the job and they felt that McClaren, Curbishley and Allardyce were not up to the job. I’m a big fan of Sven and think he’s the best England manager I’ve ever seen but I thought that maybe it was time to give an English manager a chance. And Scolari will be a mistake.
The good thing is that he looks exactly like my Dad. If my Dad grows his moustache back he could get lots of work during retirement as a Scolari lookalike. Excellent.
