Good news for all the pub dwellers and Football Manager players who know exactly what's needed to revamp England at the youth level — the FA has made their befuddlement over who should replace Stuart Pearce as England's U-21 manager known by posting an open call for applications on their official jobs site.
With Roy Hodgson currently filling in as caretaker manager for the upcoming Scotland friendly, the FA says they are searching for a "Head Coach who will be a proven leader with a wealth of coaching experience." And a UEFA Pro Diploma/Licence or FA Coaching Diploma, of course. But even if you don't possess all of those prerequisites, the FA would probably still like to hear from you. Especially if you submit a parody/joke application.
After missing out on the top job, maybe our old pal Bert Tiddle will resubmit his CV for this one.
