Gareth Southgate Record

After the Qatar World Cup Gareth Southgate has a record of PL 81, W 49, D 18, and L 14. This is a 60% win record.

England Manager Candidates

Mauricio Pochettino

Pochettino has been supported to take the England job when it becomes vacant.

The Argentinian's career has spanned 4 clubs since he first took charge of Spanish club Espanyol in 2009. 

Two spells in England at Southampton and Tottenham culminated in Pochettino taking charge of one of the giants of European football Paris Saint Germain, a club he played for. 

Whilst in Paris he won the Ligue 1 title but could not secure the Champions League for the ambitious owners Qatar Sports Investments.  

In July 2022 he was dismissed. 

He was quoted at 4/1 for the vacant Aston Villa Job and 5/1 to replace Brendan Rodgers at Leicester.

The problem for Pochettino is that after PSG most clubs could be seen as a downward step, many chairmen may consider him "out of their league"

Managing England would put him back at the top of the tree.  

Graham Potter

Another of the "new breed" of managers noted for their football intelligence and tactical nous.

Potter started his managerial life at Ostersund in Sweden and has had a spectacular rise to be now managing Chelsea.

Eddie Howe

The ex-Bournemouth manager now at Newcastle United, he has received plenty of plaudits for his style of play. 

Would be a popular choice for fans of the beautiful game.

Dean Smith

The former manager of Aston Villa is now at Norwich City, critics would point to the lack of trophies in his career. 

Sean Dyche

Purists may baulk at the appointment of Dyche as the England manager, pragmatists would be delighted. 

The ex-Burnley manager would bring passion to the job and is nearly always in the frame for major  football vacancies.

Steven Gerrard

The former Liverpool captain took on his first managerial job at Rangers in 2018.  The club won the SPL in 2020/21 breaking a Celtic stranglehold that had lasted nine years.  

His move to Aston Villa alerted punters, although being sacked by the club in October 2022 will not have helped his England chances.

Brendan Rodgers

Has managed clubs in England, Scotland, and Wales, and played for a team in Northern Ireland.

Currently under pressure at Leicester City.

Frank Lampard

Part of the Golden Generation of players, Lampard stepped seamlessly into football management at Derby and then Chelsea. 

Sacked by Chelsea after a poor run of results and with rumours of dressing room unrest. 

He was appointed at Everton after the sacking of Rafa Benitez.

Scott Parker

Parker proved himself on the South Coast with Bournemouth promoted to the EPL. 

However, he was sacked after the 9-0 defeat by Liverpool, not so much because of the defeat but more so because of the comments he made about the club in post-match interviews. 

Arsene Wenger

Likely to be a stop-gap manager if appointed at all.

Arsene Wenger won the EPL 3 times and the FA Cup 7 times with his beloved Arsenal. 

Steven Gerrard will need to bounce back after his dismissal from Aston Villa in 2022.

England Manager Member Quotes

We surveyed OLBG members with the question: Do You Think Gareth Southgate Should be Replaced As England Manager?

65% of OLBG members said NO and 35% YES.

This survey came just after England lost the Euro 2020 Final to Italy.

Below are some of the responses. 


The idea of replacing Southgate is totally outrageous!! He has bought colour to a team that was grey for so many years.

OLBG Member: Shaka

Taken Them As Far As He Can

He has done very well with the team and they have improved under him, but maybe he has taken them as far as he can. A new manager who is a little bit more attack-minded would be a good idea.

OLBG Member: CJMST380

Wonderful Job

Gareth Southgate is doing a wonderful job and we could not wish for a better manager, he could lead England for another decade. World Cup Semi-Finalists and Euro 2020 Finalists compared to the debacle of the last manager.

OLBG Member: theiceman


No, he should not be replaced, he has transformed the way England play football. He has a very good group of young players who have yet to reach their peak and he should be allowed to bring them on.
