'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Robbo wants England job

Baggies boss Bryan Robson has put his name forward to the Football Association for the soon to be vacated position of England coach.

The former England International captain told the Daily Express, “If the FA want to speak to me, I’d seriously consider it.”

Robson who masterminded Albion’s Great Escape last season believes that his nine years of managerial experience should help him win over the Football Association and FA Chief Executive Brian Barwick.

Robson said, 'I now feel I have the experience after nine years of management. I've also had the benefit of working with Terry Venables when he was England coach.

With Sven-Goran Eriksson standing down after this years World Cup any potential candidate currently with a job will be able to finish the season before taking over from the Swede.

Robson won 90 caps and scored 26 goals for his country during an International career that made him one of the greatest England captain’s of all time. He feels that his knowledge and familiarity with the England setup could encourage the FA to seriously consider him a candidate for the job.

With Eriksson already touting Robson as a replacement the Baggies boss has called on other big names in the game such as Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson to provide the FA with a reference if they consider him as a serious candidate.

Robson would love the opportunity to manage England but it remains to be seen whether Barwick and the FA consider him to be of a standard to replace Eriksson.

With Bolton boss Sam Allardyce and Middlesbrough manager Steve McClaren both being linked with the job in the past Robson faces stiff competition from home and abroad with no news on whether England want an Englishman or another foreign man to take the job.

From an Albion point of view I do not think chairman Jeremy Peace would stand in the way of Robson if he was offered the opportunity to manage his country, but I also think that Robson would be very fortunate to be offered the job as I believe the FA has a host of other names they will offer the job to before he is even considered.
