Here's what some of you had to say on Facebook.

Ian Callender: "Might be a good choice. Not an FA yes man. High opinion of who is good or bad. Has he the respect after taking the BBC shilling for many years as a pundit. Time to put up or shut up Mr S."

Craig Stott: "I think he will be a amazing England coach not scared to speak his mind has the ability to analyse as seen on Match of the Day and I've rarely seen him be wrong when saying so."

James Treweeke: "Want a young manager who won't be scared to drop the likes of Rooney, Hart and Sterling."

Gareth An Leanne Stokoe: "Don't matter who you give it to all the players think about is the money, they don't play for the game anymore."

Julie Bennett: "They should start paying the players on their performance. Not the ridiculous sum they get now."

John William Graham: "Lack of outstanding candidate - wouldn't be the worst appointment."

Paul Hutchinson: "Might as well give him a go, everyone else has failed."

Steve Walters: "Rather him than Big Sam, we need him at Sunderland."

Fred Coward: "What and do the same as he did at Newcastle?"

Elizabeth Robson: "Yes, yes and a trillion yesses. Alan Shearer is my hero."

Claire Louise Stewart: "He wasn't impressed by their performance during games when he was on TV, showed his passion for the sport, they need to think about decent players not just names for shirt sales."
