10 people who actually should be the next England manager

So England are out - again - and this time they didn't even make it to their customary quarter-final penalty defeat.

Inevitably, the dignified Roy Hodgson was forced to fall on his sword within minutes of the final whistle, meaning that, once again, the England hotseat is up for grabs.

We've tried foreign managers. We've tried English managers. We've tried tactical geniuses. We've tried man-managers. They've all failed.

So it's time to think outside the box. Here's our top 10 candidates to take England forward.
