Sir: I do not think Arsene Wenger, whom you suggested in your recent leader should be England manager, would take the job following the dog's breakfast Glenn Hoddle has made of the England team.

From what I saw of the match against Luxembourg, none of the English players seemed to know what they were supposed to be doing, except Shearer. This was epitomised by the young pretender to the centre defence role spending the match galloping up the right wing.

My vote for the manager would be Sky TV, which would appreciate the urgency of forming an attractive winning team in the interests of keeping their paying customers.
