There more I think about this the more ludicrous I think the idea of Harry becoming the next England manager really is. It is becoming an everyday occurence now to pick up a paper and see Harry being linked with the England job.
My question is don’t you think Harry would be mad to take the England job if the FA made their move. He is at a top club with money to spend and we are probably 2 or 3 top players off of winning the Premiership, so why wouldn’t Harry want to finish the job? He has taken us from relegation strugglers to a Champions League outfit and so far we have made light work of that too. If we hadn’t had all our injuries so far this season I am convinced we would be at least 6 points better off.
You also have to take into account that no matter who takes the England job they are not ever going to win shit, we had our chance and we blew it. The England team by the time Harry gets the job is going to be nowhere near the quality of that of previous managers until the FA invest in youth like Spain did and a decade later they are world champions. After Gerrard, Lampard, Rio etc who is there of the same quality? Harry would have to be mad to give up Tottenham and the excitement of the Premiership to take on the pressure of the England job which will probably see him sacked in no time because people won’t be able to understand that England are just not good enough to win anything anytime soon.
I can appreciate what a great honour it is for a manager to be able to manage his country but Harry is at the height of his career and the way the England team is at the moment I personally would see taking the job as a step backwards. I know Harry has always fancied being England manager but he may still get his chance in 5 years time.
Am I right or should Harry follow his dream and take the England job and all that comes with it should he be first choice to succeed Fabio Capello?Follow @TrfficTottenham
