Sports Letter: Your verdict on the England succession

Click to follow
Sir: The next England manager should be a man who has won trophies both here and overseas, a man with international experience as a player and a coach, a man well versed in the pressures of the job, a man widely regarded as one of Europe's top coaches, a man who can groom a Ray Wilkins or a Glenn Hoddle to succeed him, a man who is patriotic and who would risk his reputation to aid his nation. That man is Bobby Robson, probably the finest manager England has ever produced and certainly more capable than the League's long-ball merchants who are as much to blame for our demise as unfortunate Mr Taylor.

Yours faithfully,
