    Who was the better manager for England?



    This is a serious question. So no irrelevent third option.

    No-brainer - Sven, not that being better than McClaren is any great achievement, of course.

    I'd be interested to see someone make a case for McClaren, actually.

    Worst English manager since Don Revie: fact.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Erikson easily, although as Halz said, it doesn't take much to be better than McLaren,

    Graham Taylor vs Steve McLaren would have been better.

    I thought McClown was statistically the worst England manager ever. Someone told me he had the highest percentage of games lost out of anyone. Says it all really.

    Sven got us to three QFs and had us qualify for torunaments ahead of Germany (and he came in with us in a mess), Turkey, admittedly the teamsd in our WC06 group were easy, but still, we qualified comfortably. McClaren couldn't get us past a Russia team that really isn't very good; we had blips like the Macedonioa draw under Sven but we always made up for them, we didn't win any of our three difficult away games under McClaren. Nice guy, but seriously, I could have got us out of that group, and I'd have pciked Tranmere players.

    Can't believe I didn't go for the irrelevant first option.

    Could be, tbf. I hedged my bets tho, 'cos Revie failed to get us to the 1976 Euro championships and the 1978 WC, then promptly ****ed off the the UAE for more wedge with the qualification for the latter still (nominally) in the balance.
