Five potential England managers (1)

England have suffered humiliation at this World Cup, make no mistake about that, but Hodgson should be given time to turn England around.

The former Fulham manager has a vast wealth of experience behind him, both at international and domestic level and at the time of his appointment, he was and still is the best man for the job.

He has inherited one of the poorest crops of English players in many years, the talent pool back home has been thinning for a long time now, and Brazil 2014 has shown the effects of this.

His “star players” did not perform, none of them did in all honesty, but at a major tournament you want your captain and leading goal scorer to stand up and be counted.

Gerrard and Rooney didn't do this.

‘Woy’ did not do a great job, the glaring omission of Ashley Cole was perhaps his biggest mistake, and at times there seemed to be no plan B when the going got tough for England.

However, he should be given two years to groom the next generation of players and install some determination and pride in the players ahead of France 2016.

Hodgson has had a great career and been a good servant to English football and he deserves to leave the game with dignity.

It’s an almost certain that Hodgson will bow out after the European Championships of 2016, but who is in line to replace him?

Well unlike the playing talent pool, the managerial one seems to be constantly expanding.

Any one of the following five could be in charge come next World Cup, and one hasn't made their managerial bow yet.
