Steve Bruce is easily the best English candidate in my view.

Too many foreign managers as well as players in the top flight of English football. I find it disheartening to read a headline of some foreign player i've never heard of (probably average) sign for a Premier League team and it happens all too often.

As Budget says, having a global domestic top flight has come at a price of a successful national team. All well and good having U21 teams playing in the Johnstone Paints Trophy, but it's hardly a benchmark for future international selection.

Strangely the two front runners for the job - Big Sam & Steve Bruce - have never played a single full international between them.

Bruce must have come close. He'd be our best defender now!!!

Both lump it in the crowd type defenders, so looking forward to them instilling that style of football into the England team!

Actually they are probably the best type of managers for our bunch of overrated primas. Get back to basics, inject some team spirit and kick some ass.

Seen Steve Bruce play some decent attacking football when he was manager of Wigan Athletic.

The England team is the only one in the tournament that had 100% domestic player representation coming from the overall most represented league in terms of player minutes and players overall ( so Premier League players on average went the furthest in the tournament by playnig out of proportion in terms of time per player).

So if the Premier League can be good for foreign players, it is exactly the same conditions..... the players coming through are just not good enough, making them play in a far worse league wont do anything.

The one main difference between England and other successful nations..... no one ever moves abroad.

It will be fun to hear him complain at an international level now.

Could give Graham Taylor a run for his money memorable quotes.

I wish they'd hurry up and make Mike Bassett's Sam Allardyce's appointment official.
