    Next England football manager.

    This is how the BBC describe the early odds.

    The latest odds have England Under-21 boss and former Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate as favourite to succeed Hodgson.

    Odds are also being offered on Gary Neville and Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew (10/1); Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe and new Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers (16/1); Arsenal's Arsene Wenger (28/1) and Manchester United's Jose Mourinho (33/1).



    If Gareth Southgate is appointment all England shirts, scarves and other fan paraphernalia will be ceremonially burned and all supporters clubs disbanded.

    I think it WILL be Southgate. Think he has been groomed for the job.

    Mourinho would have been fun, but it's not going to happen.

    Wenger isn't a bad shout, actually.

    It's not going to be Wenger. Not whilst his Arsenal deal has time to run.

    Pretty sure they want him for the French National team as well.

    Next England manager? Our writers have their say on who should replace Roy Hodgson - Mirror Online

    Never mind what happened during his eight games in the cockpit at Newcastle in 2009, when he inherited a mess from Joe Kinnear.

    After four years of Roy Hodgson's hush puppies, England need a jackboot - and Alan Shearer would stand for no nonsense from overpaid, pampered, mollycoddled millionaires.

    He would command respect from the players and, from his forthright opinions on Match of the Day, he seems to have a grasp of what is required to succeed at international level.

    If the cupboard is bare, and there are no oven-ready candidates with a nice set of coaching badges, why not give Shearer a whirl? And if Rio Ferdinand, his sidekick on TV as pundits picked over the carcass of Hodgson's reign, fancies a bash as his assistant, why not bring him on board as well?

    Time will tell whether it's a dream ticket, but they couldn't do any worse than Hodgson's nightmare in Nice.

    My favourite part is seeing the use of "he can't do any worse than Hodgson" frequently used as an actual argument, rather than as the punchline to some sub-par banter.

    I wouldn't have a problem with Shearer being involved, the cupboard is bare. Don't know what coaching qualifications etc. he has mind.

    Plenty of other big countries have gone for someone equivalent to him.

    First thing a new manager needs to do is boot Rooney out of the squad. If they're not going to do that then we may as well give up now.
