11:15 AM ET 10.10 | Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney insists that his former international team-mate and captain David Beckham could take on the role of England manager someday, while insisting that he himself has no interest in the job. Current boss Fabio Capello is set to leave his position following England's Euro 2012 campaign, irrespective of the outcome, and several candidates including Harry Redknapp, Steve Bruce and Sam Allardyce have been mooted as potential successors, while the FA's director of football development, Sir Trevor Brooking, has not ruled out a sensational return to the England post for former national coach Steve McClaren.

+1. I found it especially troubling considering the fact that just last week you were linked with the job. Not cool.

I think Vinnie Jones should really be considered as a potential prospective manager...

RIP Sidd Finch.

I'm sold that if JJ was there and not Ricardo Clark, we'd make it to the semis and coulda given Holland the battle of a lifetime.

Hudson, I would like for you to use an avatar of Brian McBride in a Fire jersey with your new title being "BMB = Fire".

More to come later today/this week...

Bank holiday most likely means I will be busy getting stuff done rather than being at work and able to be on here.

Oh, please. How typical is that? That's the same mentality that made Shearer manager in Newcastle and look what happened there.

Would he even be as effective as Maradona? I mean nobody has ever confused this guy with being a genius.
I would think considering his lack of form, Rooney would have more pressing issues to consider. Probably some media type digging for a story.
