10 reasons why Ian Holloway should be appointed England manager

Holloway_21 He is not Steve McClaren.
2 Even after a dull 0-0 bore draw with Israel, Ollie would still entertain us with his post-match interview. Whereas McClaren...
3 Ian Holloway could motivate a stone (although whether this is a big a feat as motivating a bunch of overpaid egotists is up for debate!)
4 Ollie is happily married and a true family man. He is therefore unlikely to throw up any embarrassing Sven-style scandals.
5 He would have the balls to substitute Frank Lampard.

6 He's not afraid to stick it to FIFA.
7 He wouldn't be scared of picking David Beckham.
8 The last time England had a half-decent manager it was Mike Bassett and he came from a Championship side.
9 Imagine what he would if he won the World Cup...
10 He's an all-round legend and we love him very much!

What do you reckon? Holloway for England?

I'll jump on this bandwaggon, definately. Plus let's bring Gazza in as assistant. Come on England. :)

Reason #1 is enough for me.

I'd love to see Holloway take the piss out of the current squad, bring em back down to earth.

Same, Timothy. I'd rather appoint the soul of Sir Alf Ramsey as coach and pick the squad by internet polling than watch another one of these...

A popular saying in Holland is that there are sixteen million people who think they're better than the national team manager. I think those words would actually ring true for England at the moment.

I reckon they're going to seriously struggle against Andorra, this lot with this coach would do well to get a 2-0 win.
