Skuse is a very good player, he does the jobs of about four people, would be nice if he had a partner on a similar level as a pose to Bru (one decent game in five) Hyam (dogged, mediocre, lacking technically) and Douglas (too slow).
I'd probably look at a couple of names in particular, Martin Schmidt took FC Mainz to 6th place last season, an improvement on recent seasons and is built in the Klopp mould. Slightly eccentric but infectous. Presses from the front and can get a reaction from players. Still quite new to managing as well.
Andre Schubert has done well as well, his style is a bit more possession based but still gets his teams closing very quickly. He has also had experience managing development sides so can deal with different kinds of players. Whether or not they can speak English, I have no idea.
For the record I'm not overly bothered about England given what's been served up, but you did ask
Someone who has dealt with players for years? You mean like Capello, Sven, McLaren and Hodgson. Lets just let that be the criteria for the England manager then shall we, as long as he's dealt with players for years then he gets the job. Sounds simple.
Lets not research or think of anyone a bit different to change our fortunes, just stick with the same old 'safe and steady' policy. After Allardyce we'll give Pulis a go, then once he's done its sit deep and counter attack Pardews turn.
I'm not saying the Capello decision was necessarily a bad choice at the time, what I'm saying is how can you draw a consensus from Sven and Capello? Just cause those two didn't work out, you can't compare them to a Pochettino for example because they are different.
The climate is different, I do feel that with the team England have we need a young manager because it is trendy as lame as that sounds. Fresh training methods, more charisma, I think that genuinely motivates players.
At the moment we are a poor/average nation but that doesn't mean in the world of football we can only attract pragmatic, mediocre managers. I'm not saying Allardyce is a bad manager, he's proven himself to be a good one.
But imagine you're Dele Alli and the FA rings you and says, 'Hi Dele how are you? You're next boss is big Sam by the way' with respect to Sam I think he'd feel underwhelmed.
