The Football Association's search for a successor to Sven-Goran Eriksson goes on - with no agreement yet on who seems likeliest to get the job.
BBC Sport rounds up the latest news and speculation as FA chief executive Brian Barwick, international committee chairman Noel White, Premier League chairman Dave Richards and FA vice-chairman David Dein search for a manager.
If you are an England fan and you read the Sun or the Daily Star, you will be preparing for the Steve McClaren era.
Shaun Custis in the Sun says McClaren has "one hand on the England job" while Brian Woolnough reports in the Star that the Middlesbrough manager "could be confirmed as new England coach as early as next Friday".
If, however, you bump into England supporting friends who read the Daily Express, they might tell you that Luiz Felipe Scolari is about to get the job. According to Harry Harris, the Portugal boss has "jumped to the head of the queue" with Stuart Pearce lined up as his assistant.
Harris reports that the likes of Alan Curbishley "would have to put in an exceptional interview to stop the Scolari appointment being ratified this weekend".
Perhaps the most telling piece in the morning newspapers is in the Times, where chief football correspondent Matt Dickinson says the snag with England's headhunting reaching a climax is that there isn't one.
Opinion on the selection panel is "more divided than ever", writes Dickinson, who believes the FA board will meet again on Friday afternoon to attempt to decide upon who they want.
WHAT THE MANAGERS ARE SAYING
17 April - "The whole thing is bizarre. Every day you are news and it's difficult when you are trying to run your club. Whenever I go into a press conference before a game it gets hijacked by people wanting to talk about England.
12 April - "I'd like to reassure everyone connected with Bolton that I'm looking for players so that we can continue to compete with the elite of English and European football."
12 April - "I've coped with the speculation game after game but I can't think about anything else but Middlesbrough. I let everyone else do the speculating. My focus, and I mean this genuinely, is on my job at Middlesbrough and my sole intention is to bring success here."
Former Celtic boss O'Neill is the only one of the five candidates believed to be on the FA's shortlist not to have made any comment so far.
Luiz Felipe Scolari
15 April - "I'll think about my future after 31 July. I don't know what I'll do after Germany."

Doesn't anyone see the bigger picture? England will appoint a reliable, loyal boss for now but this will just be a temporary measure until a man who has been quoted as interested in the job steps forward - Jose Mourinho. And no, I'm not a Chelsea fan!

Many journalists have Martin O'Neill at the top of their wish list but I can't see him ever managing England, it just holds no appeal for him.
The media should be realistic. Martin O'Neill is an Irishman who lived and breathed Scottish football for years with Celtic - he is not going to take the job. England should go all out for Alan Curbishley - he has almost single-handedly made Charlton a top half Premiership team

Faces stand for a great deal in the public relations, player and fan inspiration stakes. Martin O'Neill oozes credibility, guile, and determination. That he actually HAS a proven management record at the highest grade means that he is the complete package. We have superior player talent - lets not waste it by choosing a manager who cannot generate a special response from players, fans and media alike.
It has to be Big Sam. He is tough and won't be taken for a fool. Look what he did to Bolton this season, you have to pick him.

I think Martin O'Neill is the man for the Job. I am a Rangers man, but looked at what he achieved at Celtic with largely mediocre players, Henrik Larsson excepted. Who else is there? None of the other candidates have the know-how or the knowledge or the experience to do what needs to be done.
It has to be Alan Curbishley. He is the man for the job, has everything England need.
It has to be Phil Scolari. He took two different teams with different playing styles to two major tournament finals. One won and one narrowly lost. How many other managers can do that?
He is cool, calm and collected, he speaks English, he has not get any skeletons in his cupboard and he is a perfect gentleman. He has got loads of European experience having won the Champions League with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich and yet no one seems to be mentioning him. He is the obvious choice and if we go for a "Brit", I think we will be missing a wonderful opportunity. It has to be Ottmar Hitzfeld!
You all have it wrong! I understand that Peter Taylor of Hull City has a good chance. What do you think?
