England could have a new permanent manager soon - Gareth Southgate wants to remain at the post [The Times]

Despite some initial skepticism by Gareth Southgate after Roy Hodgson quit the post manager of the England national squad, it seems that the ex-Middlesbrough coach has changed up his mind and wants to become The Three Lions’ permanent boss.

Southgate has been assigned the position of interim coach for the next four games at least, after the scandal with Sam Allardyce and the latter’s resigning. He will have the games from the World Cup qualifiers against Malta, Slovenia and Scotland to prove himself worthy of the post, as well as a friendly match versus Spain.

Southgate hasn’t exactly shown that he has some kind of amazing skills, but is a manager that has improved the consistency of the U21 England squad, where he has spent the last three year. If the English paper “The Times” has reported correctly and the FA like him, we may see Southgate leading the Three Lions to the 2020 World Cup.

  1. Southgate is the best we can do? What a fucking embarrassment, we’d be lucky to qualify with this wanker is charge

  2. With him around we will be constantly reminded of his penalty failure, written blatantly across his face before he took it and invariably missed. This face no one wants to see before, during or after an England match. I think Big Sam would have done nothing to change England’s performance but Southgate could just tweek what is needed. We will know this when we play Malta if he succeeds or not, because Sam did not do anything to improve the one and only game he presided over.
