Fabio Capello To Become The Next England Manager?

Fabio Capello is poised to be confirmed as the new England manager after the Football Association board approved the Italian's appointment on Thursday.
Capello's four-and-a-half year deal could be worth £6.5m a year, but the finer points are still being finalised.

"The board has approved his appointment as manager subject to further contract negotiations," said an FA spokesman.

"These will continue. But there are no problems and we're going through the process for a successful conclusion."

BBC sports editor Mihir Bose says Capello and the FA have an agreement that both parties can end the deal in 2010.

One of the issues still to be resolved is the choice of Capello's support staff.


An update is to be expected for tommorow according to the FA website, and yet the German Sport1 website is reporting that Capello has already been presented as England's new manager. Any opinions on the appointment of Capello? While Frank Lampard seems to praise Capello for his potential and what he could do for England, I doubt he can make that much of a difference. If I look back at Capello's previous job at Real Madrid, England may have to expect very defensive football, almost Catenaccio like, which from a playing point of view may not be such a great difference when compared to how McClaren set up the team.

It looks like Capello will be the new man in charge, he is the real deal, a proven track record and a winner. The FA wanted a 'world class' manager, now they've got one. I welcome his appointment, he is unlikely to screw it up as badly as Mclaren did. As for defensive football i don't think English players, fans or the media will care if England start winning again become a footballing force. I could care less if England grind out 1-0 wins if it means England are successful. Some people will moan about hiring another foreign manager, but which English manager can boast Capello's record?

Quoting Arsenal@LHR (Reply 1):

That is true. I don't deny that Capello is probably one of the most successful football managers of all time, but me being a nitpicker, I prefer a healthy balanced kind of football, in which they don't play too defensively. Of course, it's impossible to always play highly offensive, but too defensive is too much for me, but that's just my opinion.

In any case, it is said in the article that Capello is a no-bullshitter. He's very demanding. I wonder how he'll do in finally making Lampard and Gerrard complement each other, and also what the situation will be for the others. Beckham may have the overall edge because he already knows Capello from his last year at Real Madrid, so he knows what he's into (plus Beckham can become even more useful and help translating what Capello says since he (Capello) only speaks a little English  Wink ).

Oh yes! rotfl 

I'd bet a large sum of money that Capello can construct a better English sentence than Beckham. You know what I mean. Like. Innit.

 checkmark  Although, let's be honest, we all remember the 4-1 beating of Holland in Euro '96, and the 5-1 beating of Germany during the World Cup '02 qualifiers, and I think secretly we'd all like to see England performing like that on a regular basis. But, you're right...I'd take a 1-0 win over a 5-4 loss any day of the week.

Actually, I think it might be good news for Beckham. If Beckham can prove himself fit and on form during the upcoming MLS season, I could easily see Capello using him as a 'super sub' type of player. David doesn't really have 90 or 120 minutes in him anymore at international level, but it's been proven that he can turn a game when the chips are down or keep a game when the scoreline is favourable. Bring him on for the last 30 minutes, and he'll do what he's best at; moving the ball forward, playmaking, and creating chances. I also think it would be beneficial just to have him in the squad for his tenure and experience.

I'd bet a large sum of money that Capello can construct a better English squad than McClaren, Erikson, Keegan, Hoddle, Venables, Taylor, or Robson put together. Finally, Barwick and Brooking and the rest of the FA have done something right; appointed the right man for the job. Capello isn't a yes man, and he isn't a diplomat. He'll pick the best team, not the best 11 individual players, and he'll get English football back where it should have been (and almost was in 1996) a long time ago.

The other big question, which I almost forgot: Can Fabio Capello make the Three Lions win a penalty shootout?  stirthepot 

I guess we'll have to wait until the next World Cup to know.  Wink

Was on standby all day at work today so got to listen to the news quite a lot. Got a bit fed up hearing all the fans saying they don't want him because he's not English. Tell you what lets let him start his job first then if he fails to bring success to our National Team then slate him. Because if England qualify for FIFA 2010 and happen to win it they will be the same fans who are singing praise of Mr Capello.

Good luck in your new job Fabio....

I just don't understand that "but he's not English" mentality. There is no English manager who has his track record or his attitude. Who do they want? Martin O'Neil? Won the SPL. BFD. Alan Curbishley? He'd be McClaren all over again. Big Sam Alladyce? Has a big mouth and big ambitions, but has won absolutely jack all. I even heard Paul Ince saying Glenn Hoddle should be given another chance. He fucked it up the first time around; he'd fuck it up again.

Capello is the right man for the job; there's no two ways about it. He's the real deal and will hopefully will rebuild the squad from the ground up with the players who play well, not players who's only claim is that they played for England before. First point of business? Appoint a new team captain.

The article even says that people such as Tony Adams, who was't happy either that the new England manager was not English while still recognising Capello's highly successful career as manager, and even Alan Shearer may even get involved in Capello's staff.

Not to mention that currently, the best three managers of the Premier League aren't even English at all (Sir Alex at ManU is Scottish, Arsène Wenger at Arsenal is French, and Rafa Benítez is Spanish). And just because one is a national of the country he coaches or has had experience in major leagues, doesn't mean he's cut out for being a good manager. Klinsmann was manager of a small US football team from LA before becoming Bundestrainer for 2 years, Bernd Schuster wasn't a particularly successful manager either before he caught the attention of the big cheeses from Real Madrid during his time in Getafe, something similar can be said about Frank Rijkaard (whom we Germans still resent for him spitting at Rudi Völler during Italy '90) before going to Barça.

In our case, I wouldn't mind of Germany eventually has a foreign manager for its senior team as well. All we want from that manager is that he has what it takes to win.

BTW: Could the mods please change the title to remove the question mark, reflecting on the confirmation of Capello as manager?

It's getting a little boring hearing people like Steve Coppell and others moaning about hiring another foreign manager, what they fail to accept is the fact that England need a proven winner and leader. Not someone just because he's English, it would be nice to have a English manager, but what would we rather have, a average or sub-standard English coach or a top class foreign coach?

Not to mention that the entire situation is reflection of the big picture of English football, namely that it's a sad state of affairs. I remember when Blair first came to power, there was a big push in the Labour manifesto for an emphasis on sports and training up youngsters in all sports so that we could become a sporting superpower again (if we ever were one). That was ten years ago, and things have gotten worse.

I nearly chocked on my dinner when he said that, does that woman hang around him these days?

Is O'Neil that good?

It's a pity Jose pulled out then there would a proper competition for the job.

Well i hope will work his arse of then for £6 million a year,it will be good for him to be England manager, as for his fee a year,no its not good as his line of work does not fit the fee, its way too much, for £6 million a year you could give a fireman and a police officer and a nurse a pay rise.

The problem with with Jose is that he checked all the right boxes except one; he's not much of a mediator. Part of the national job is be able to mediate between the FA and the clubs when it comes to players selection. Club managers have been famous in the past for taking digs at national team selection during congested fixture schedules, and Jose is the kind of guy who get an attitude about it. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that England would have done well under Jose, but he wouldn't have lasted the tenure because either would have gotten pissed off, of he would have pissed off other people.

I think the general consensus is, though, that Capello is a great appointment. He arguably has a more impressive track record than Jose, and possesses the passion for the game that is needed in that position. Roll on next year's WC qualifier games.

Good luck to him. Hopefully he will bring an improvement in our national team.
