Should The FA Axe Fabio Capello Before Euro 2012?

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 09 September 2011, 09:30

Tony Cottee recently became the latest in a long line of people to vent their frustration at England manager Fabio Capello. Capello is due to step down as England boss at the end of the 2012 European Championship next summer but, after England narrowly scraped past Wales on Tuesday night, there have been calls for the FA to act now and axe the Italian, in order to avoid a repeat of last year's dismal World Cup showing at the upcoming Euro 2012.

Capello has long been criticised for his team selection, negative strategy and static formation choices, along with the drab, lacklustre football that England fans have grown accustomed to. However, it is very unlikely that the FA will choose to get rid of him before the European Championships next summer. England may not have set the world alight in qualifying but they are on the verge of booking their plane tickets after the win against Wales extended their lead at the top of Group G to six points. The Three Lions now only need to come away from Montenegro on October 7th with a draw to secure their passage through. If England do progress then Capello will be tasked with erasing the bitter memories of the World Cup and prove to the nation that he has learnt from his mistakes in South Africa. When Capello does leave, he will open up one of the biggest, and high-pressured, jobs in football. The question is, who has the guts to step up to the plate and breathe some fresh life into a stagnant set-up?

Harry Redknapp is currently the overwhelming 11/8 favourite with Paddy Power in the Next England Manager Betting. The Tottenham Hotspur manager employs attractive, entertaining and attacking football and would certainly be a popular choice among fans. Martin O'Neill and Roy Hodgson are both priced at 7/1, while the England Under-21 manager Stuart Price has odds of 9/1, although his time will probably not come for a few years yet. David Beckham is available at a surprise 14/1 to get the job.
