Who should be the next England manager?

England badge
The Football Association seem to be having trouble signing up the next England manager.

They were hoping to give the job to Brazilian Luiz Felipe Scolari, but the Portugal coach has said he does not want it.

Other names rumoured to be in the running include Middlesbrough manager Steve McClaren, Bolton's Sam Allardyce and former Celtic boss Martin O'Neill.

Have you got any idea who would make a good coach?

Whether it's one of them or someone else, let us know who you think should get the job.

I think it should be big Sam Allardyce as he has done brilliant with Bolton even though he has had hardly any money!
Jordan, 11, Bristol

I think the next England manager should be a manager who has previous managed World Cup teams.
David, 13, Padiham

I think that Martin O'Neil or Steve McClaren should be the next England manager.
Vikki, 15, London

I think it should be Steve Maclaren because he's English and already part of the England team. And he is doing well with Middlesborough at the moment.
Gabrielle, 13, Grantham

Sam Allayce, because he's English and good at choosing players!
Taylor, 13, Nottingham

I think Arsene Wenger because he has done an amazing job at Arsenal and I think he can do that with England too.
Carl, 13, Birmingham

Sam Allerdyce should be the next England manager as he is the only manager with the credentials who can, in my opinion, do the job for England - just look at what he has done for Bolton.
Amy, 13, Mansfield

Sam Alladyce - I think he's a brilliant manager and he's English.
Nicole, 11, Telford

I think Ian Dowie should be the next England manager because he is a really wicked Crystal Palace manager.
Ben, 10, Croydon

I agree with Jake from Gillingham because Alan Shearer has a lot of experience and he doesn't want the Newcastle job so he is perfect, and he knows the team well.
Louis, 12, France

I think it should be Steve McClaren because he took Middlesbrough to the UEFA final when they were down 3-0 on aggregated twice before.

I reckon that Stuart Pearce should be the new England boss.
Davo, 13, Chesterfield

I think Martin O'Neil should be the next England manager.
Jack, 9, St. Albans

Steve McClaren should be as he knows the players as he helps Sven.
Amrit, 10, Derby

I think Alan Pardew should be the next England manager as he has pulled West Ham from near relegation to the top half of the premiership and the final of the FA Cup. He is also one of the only managers that smiles and laughs as well!
Gary, 14, Chester

I think it should be Gary Lineker.
Hannah, 12, Fakenham

Mark, 13, Surrey

I think that Arsene Wenger should be the next England manager.
James, 11, Southampton

I think it should be Steve Mclaren because he took Boro to the Uefa Cup final and FA Cup semis. By the way Mourinho and Fergie wouldn't accept and Shearer, Beckham and Ronaldhino haven't got any coaching experience.

I think McClaren would be a good England Manger because he has brought Middlesbrough to the UEFA Cup final.

I think Ronaldinho should be the new England manager because he would train them well because he is a world class player himself.
David, 9, Cardiff

I think Steve Mclaren should be England manager because he has worked as assistant to Sven and he knows the players better than the other candidates.
Ben, 11, London

I think O'Neill should win well Celtic are just the best team in the world.
Jake, 10, Gillingham

I think Alan Shearer should be the next England manager because he is the best manager in the world.

I think Steve McClaren should become England manager - he's already part of England and look what he did to Middlesbrough!
Elli, 12, Shefford

Definitely Alan Shearer one day - he knows exactly what its like to be a top player and how it feels to be under pressure and could really understand the players !
Bex, 12, Berks

I think Arsene Wenger should be the next England manager because he is good and has lots of good tactics!
