The best British choice would be Fergie, not that he'd be interested. I cant think of an Englishman who could do the job well.

Aren't two thirds of fleet streets finest sports hacks looking deep into their hard drives to retrieve their quarterly "REDKNAPP FOR ENGLAND" pieces?

 

In a utterly piss poor field, he'd bet he best candidate by a country mile. That's not saying much mind....

Redknapp talking absolute nonsense as per usual.

 

 

But Redknapp said Southgate was only seen as a favourite for the job because he had won a "second-rate tournament" with England's Under-21s in Toulon.

"Why should he get it in front of Steve Bruce and Sam Allardyce, who are proven managers?" asked the former QPR boss.
"I like Gareth Southgate, he's a great lad, but what's he done?"
Redknapp also suggested former Tottenham and Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood as a possible option.
"He's got passion, enthusiasm, I'll come and work with him all day," said the 69-year-old. "He's young, enthusiastic, knows the game."

SSNHQ has been told that senior England players:

  • Were surprised by the use of a 4-3-3 formation, which had barely been implemented in any of England's friendly matches in 2016.
  • Questioned the selection of Raheem Sterling for the Iceland game, after he showed signs of lacking confidence throughout the tournament.
  • Felt momentum had been lost by making six changes for the Slovakia game, which they drew 0-0.
  • Wondered why Adam Lallana did not start against Iceland after his impressive performances during the group stages.
  • Debated among themselves the merits of playing Wayne Rooney in midfield, for the first time in his England career.
  • Were left frustrated that Marcus Rashford was left to warm up for approximately 10 minutes before he was sent on for the final four minutes of the Iceland game with England in desperate need of a goal.
  • Felt his pre-prepared statement at the post-Iceland press conference was an indication he may have doubted the team's chances before the game.
