He wouldn’t. Certainly not for the England job but don’t let that ruin the fantasy 

He definitely would. 

Any English manager would leave their current role for the big seat

Unless your winning the league every year

Can’t tell if you’re being serious or not?

I’d be very surprised if any youngish club manager who is doing well would take the England job.

There'd be plenty who would but not the ones like Howe who are at a big club with a lot of money to spend.

He doesn't need the platform.

In my view…Southgate has done well because he’s come out of the FA central set up, working with many of this team through the age groups. Perhaps continue with that process and choose the next in line, who will have been groomed?

There's probably something in that. And that international football and club football offer different challenges.

(And we've also benefitted from, and taken advantage of, some relatively easy draws in recent tournaments)

Subject to everything; probably not in this one!

Senegal

France

Spain

Brazil

Win those and we’d be rightful champions! 
 

The other half of draw looks distinctly less difficult.

Without a doubt.

Japan did us no favours qualifying in the way they did. We really could've done with them beating Costa Rica and then losing against Spain.

I'm just hoping our experience of getting to the latter stages in the last two tournaments stands us in good stead this time. I've always thoughti the lack of that experience has held us back.

Good; plenty of quality options

Bad; does he know his best starting X1?

The next in line is Lee Carsley, having managed the U20s and now the U21s. Still keen?
