Villa Favoured By Potential England Manager

Villa Favoured By Potential England Manager

That's right, Harry 'the Happy' Redknapp is already picking his squad for the European Championship's despite the fact Fabio is still in the hotseat.

I'm not sure where the original quotes come from but the Express and Star have him quoted today as saying it's time for a new breed of England player and it has to be based on youth and hunger...effectively all those who got close but didn't make the final 30 under Fabio.

So roll up James Milner, Gabby Agbonlahor and Ashley Young.

'James is one of the young players who were a success, so deserves a regular starting place to see if he can produce that form on a consistent basis.'

Very few would disagree, well some would. Even this very site seems split on the performances of our Millyman in the World Cup, so probably safer if I just agree with the 'Coat Fiddler'(will only make sense if you saw Redknapp Jnr on A League of their Own).

But he goes further...

'Maybe now it's time to give Gabby an extended run for England, along with City's Adam Johnson and Ashley Young, also of Villa.'

I might be more philosophical than most when it comes to England cause quite frankly I'd be perfectly happy to see International football banned and let the players focus on their proper day jobs.

But the simple point is our so called World Class players consistently flop on the International stage, it's clear the only spirit within the camp is the one they use to drown their sorrows so why not for once actually try and select a team full of players who will at the very least try.

It couldn't be any worse or seriously any more mind numbing than watching the current bunch of incompetents could it.

You can just imagine Arry in the dressing room before a big game. I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips, Straining upon the start. The game's afoot: Follow your spirit, and upon this charge Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!'

I dont particularly like Harry - but for England - probably the right man, lets face it - how many decent English managers are there available? On my last count - I could put them all on one finger let alone one hand!!

I agree with him though. Many people were saying after the defeat with Germany. "But we won a friendly against them with this team"! But that is not true, the team who ran rings around Germany in Berlin in the friendly was a B team of youngsters against the then older German players. Germany learnt from this and England went backwards! The rest is history!
