A British Manager for next season

Whilst a number of fans call for the replacement of Tim Sherwood, again the list of names does not include a British manager. Are they an endangered species?

Managers such as Prandelli and Spalleti are mentioned but I don't recall them winning titles in their own countries. Managers such as Van Gaal are mentioned as are De Boer but they like any lower league candidates have not managed in the Premiership.

Current flavour of the month, and alleged Levy target, Brendan Rodgers only managed for one season in the Premiership with Swansea but has been able to attract signings of the highest calibre to Liverpool. So why shouldn't a similarly experienced and relatively internationally unknown British manager not do the same?

A candidate we should consider is SEAN DYCHE.

1. Despite running his club on a shoestring budget and selling their main striker, Charlie Austin, Burnley look odds-on to be promoted and are well ahead of bigger spending clubs like QPR, Wigan and Reading.

2. He worked under Rodgers at Watford and then Malky Mackay and arguably his record as a manager at the same club is better.

3. Both have been sacked in their early career but unlike Rodgers who left Reading following a very poor run of form, Dyche dismissal from Watford had nothing to do with form but the new Italian owners wanting a name in 'Gianfranco Zola' - Watford fans still react with dismay and disgust that Dyche was dismissed.

4. Burnley play the 'right way' but Dyche is intelligent enough to realise that you can only play like Barcelona if you have players of the calibre of Barcelona, so tactical set up is vital but that doesn't mean the technical ability of players should not be encouraged and nourished.

5. His ability to develop players which has allowed Danny Ings to explode into a goalscorer who Rodgers is now heavily scouting.

Dyche's major problem is he doesn't have an exotic name. You can only do the best at the level you are provided the opportunity at, and Dyche's best has been close to exceptional. Levy has chased exotic international managers like Santini (a league winner), Jol, Ramos and AVB (a league winner) and the results are mediocre. He has gone with an experienced British manager in Redknapp with better results.

How about go for a young British manager with excellent potential who is not burdened with being part of previous regimes but can come in and look at our club with a fresh pair of eyes? He has also worked temporarily with the England U21 team so his coaching ability has been officially recognised.

The appointment of the Ginger Mourinho - 'Stone Cold' Sean Dyche could be a knockout (sorry)
