... he's free, and hasn't made a secret about his intentions of coaching a country in a european/world cup.

he neva had good enough man management skills for the job and the language barrier was too big of a problem.. he should have resigned after the world cup and he never should have given the armband back to terry in the firstplace..

its a shame he didnt do this earlier perhaps we could have got martin o'neil who should have got the job last time.. ah well i assume stuart pearce will be temp manager till some1 is found

Redknapp perhaps would be the obvious choice but will Spurs let him go ? So England will have a manager who will make his debut at the Euroes another distraction for the players

Redknapp will have time to finish the season with Spurs and a whole month to work with the England team before the euros.

England national manager is one of the best paid positions on planet football- the rich F.A have plenty of money to throw at Spurs if Harry really wants to be the next England manager.

I don't know if he will be. He has been the man for me for years now, regardless of the off field stuff. Whether he actually wants to leave the fantastic setup he has now at Spurs and whether the FA still want him is the BIG question.

I think despite the fact he is the number 1 choice of most fans, the FA are fickle gits. If he gets the job lets hope he doesn't ask for the massive wages that come with it to be directed to an offshore bank account.... I really couldn't predict how this one will turn out.

Pearce? Pardew? Redknapp? Who knows how this will play out

I think Heskey should step up true England legend :)

I would have said Gareth Southgate but how could I forget Heskey!
