England fans have largely been over the moon with the Three Lions’ progress under Gareth Southgate. Heartbreak at the 2018 World Cup when losing in the semi-finals was followed up by a penalty shootout defeat against Italy in the Euro 2020 final.

Even though most England supporters aren’t over that summer night at Wembley, the Three Lions have been much easier to get behind than in recent years. But with the World Cup in Qatar underway, have Southgate’s England gone stale?


Following disastrous Nations League campaign against Italy, Germany and Hungary, the heat is on the former Middlesbrough boss more than ever after their relegation from the top tier was confirmed with a meek 1-0 loss in Milan.

A strong showing in the World Cup would mean all is quickly forgiven, but what if they take their shocking form over to the Middle East? This one feels like it’s coming to a head so here’s the latest odds on who’s near the top of the next England manager betting.

Graham Potter

Graham Potter

New Chelsea boss Graham Potter has a fine reputation for his easy on the eye football, however, his Brighton side struggled to finish their chances so we’ll have to see how that translates with supposedly superior players at Stamford Bridge. He’s high in the betting but would be jump ship so soon after docking in Chelsea harbour?

Eddie Howe

Eddie Howe was linked with every job going before taking over at Newcastle at the back end of last year. The former Bournemouth boss has done a fine job at St James’ Park after spending £355m in the January transfer window. He looks pretty secure at the world’s richest club.

Mauricio Pochettino

How about a touch of South American flair? Mauricio Pochettino is looking for a job after PSG decided to throw their cash at someone else, and he’s plenty of experience of English football having impressed at Southampton and Spurs.

Steve Cooper

There’s no doubt Steve Cooper is under pressure to perform at Nottingham Forest after the Tricky Trees splurged £1.7bn on 3,428 new players this summer. He has experience in the FA set up, just like Southgate did before he took the reins.

Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard is back in work after taking the Everton job following a few months at home after behind sacked by his beloved Chelsea. Lampard couldn’t quite hack it at the top of the club game and international football might be more to his liking, after all, you can’t blow £200m on transfers in this sphere. Expect Mason Mount to become captain and start every game up front.

Steve Gerrard

Former Rangers and Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard had an impressive start to life as a manager, ending Celtic’s stranglehold on the Scottish Premiership in emphatic fashion. He struggled at Aston Villa though before getting the axe. He racked up 114 caps for the Three Lions and would surely jump at the chance to take the England job.
