Mourinho for England Manager........

Clicky

Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly expressed an interest in becoming the new England manager.

Mourinho, who left Chelsea in September, said he would be prepared to talk to the Football Association.

"You will have to speak to the FA to see if they are interested in offering me the job," he told The Sun newspaper.

"I cannot say what I think until they say they are interested. Tell the FA to come and get me. We will have to wait and see, but I rule nothing out."

Mourinho would be a popular choice to replace Steve McClaren at the helm with England because of his hugely impressive record with Chelsea and Porto.
What do people think?

Would he make a good england manager or would "the special one" just **** it up?

As much as I think the man is an arrogant cock, his record and achievements put me back in my box.

The only downside I can see to his appointment would be that Lampards place in the squad would be a lot safer, and the bloke has been useless with an England shirt on recently. As has Gerrard. Both of those "safe" positions need to be seriously reviewed, the pair of them can't play together and care more about club football than the National team.

I think this is more of "The Special One" (c) enjoying being in the press, as I think he will wait out for the Portugal job.

It would be good to have him, but what if we got the fish eaters in the next world cup quarter finals? Would he stay on board?

Also, how would he deal with the FA? They can be pains in the proverbial at the best of times, but the pressure to qualify next time around will be doubled, and it's well known how he deals with influence from the unknowning higher echelons.

Wishful thinking, bad in practice (both the idea of Jose managing us, and the English teams performance since 2005).

I couldn't give two hoots about Lumplard, but by fuck I hope Ged gives more of a shit about the Club than that rotting edifice called "Team England" :x

The boos and Catcalls are enough to convince me that he should never voluntarily pull on an England Shirt ever again. I hope Crouchinho tells them to piss off at the High port the next time the nobbers come calling.

As for Mourinho? The FA and him deserve each other. They will fall over themselves to lick each others hoops out in a big Maureen / Press / FA love in and then all turn on each other like wild dogs the moment a result does not go the way of the no hopers in white.

Still. I can't see the FA appointing him. They like Yes men, and he is decidedly NOT one of those.

On the face of it he'd be perfect but can you really see him sticking with England until 2010?

I say no chance...Jose is a mercenary and will be offski as soon as there's a vacancy at Real/Barca/Juve/Milan, leaving England in the lurch.

Better to get in Capello who has nothing left to prove and is at the end of an illustrious career.

The thing about the Special One is that if the England team is still no good we will know that it is the players who need to be sacked - not the manager. I have never felt certain about that since Sir Alf Ramsey. :)

The England team are a bunch of underachieving arses. The talent in that squad should not be in a position whereby they miss any major international tournament but there it is.

Whoever manages them next needs to put a rocket up the whole squad. There are plenty of players in the Championship who would relish the oppourtunity to play for their country.

They might not achieve anything but can anybody tell me what the current England squad has achieved.

In short, I say put Mourinho in charge, you cant argue with the mans results. He is still a cnut though, unless he brings the World Cup home to England in 2010.

Chelsea didnt play cohesively under him, and that's England's biggest problem. MacLeish would be a better choice. If only he wasn't a porridge fancier.

Apart from the time when they won back to back Prem titles, the FA cup and two Carling cups :roll:
Im not denying they are an excellent team but anyone who's ever watched a match they played under Mourinho would see that they just didnt play like a solid team. England play the same but without the same level of talent.

Complete Arrse. Are you saying that a manager who has not lost a home league match for 5 years, or gone 13 consecutive games without conceding a goal doesnt play like a solid team?

I'd say bring on Harry, but what with all that's been in the papers today it's hardly likely. He's one of the few who could re-ignite the nations self belief and pride. I also think that the days of footballers picking and choosing which matches they play in would be over if Redknapp took the job.

yup.
You have clearly never been to Stamford Bridge, or any football match then, or understand anything about football

fair enough, although we have managed to move away from the "what do you think" bit, and more towards, "Im a chelsea fan, agree with me".

Not that at all Arby, but anyone who understands football knows that Mourinho played dull football, winning football, and solid football. You do not win back to back titles by not playing a solid team.

I personaly think he would be great for the job, but as Taz says, one little problem with the FA and he would be off. If he is left alone to do what he has to do, England would be a different team.

I would much rather see Wenger get the job

Either Mourinho or Martin O'Neill. Redknapp will be banged up soon getting some bum loving off his cell-mate Milan Mandaric.

Apparantly Redknap is upset that the Police raided his house at 0600 when the investigation "clearly" has nothing to do with him
