why poor ?
Because it wasn't a merit based appointment? He wasn't even in the picture and his name came up during a random conversation that someone in the FA was having with someone else.

Earlier, they had a racist as the head coach and now a bloke whose claim to fame is setting up cones at Aon Training Complex while Moyes was teaching Rooney and company how to become difficult to beat.

He was maybe failure as a assistant but maybe he is a good manager.. It's not like Kidd, Mclaren, Phelan and another coaches under Fergie had a good career after they tried to be managers..

Let's see if Phil can prove himself on the big stage, now.

Good luck.
He certainly has the right CV.
Can't tell if this is serious or not? Seems like a really silly appointment to me and one that a lot of female players and coaches will be unhappy with. It totally reeks of a man who is one of the boys being parachuted in over people actually have the right experience for the job

This just sums up women's football that someone like Phil Neville is made head coach of the English National Team.

Who has the right experience? Many women's coaches are usually pretty inexperienced. He has coached for Manchester United, the England u21s, and been assistant at Valencia. Some fairly decent experience that just about no women's coaches have. Just looking at England's past managers they all had very little experience if any. It's not exactly new for a woman's team to appoint a young inexperienced manager. One of the rumoured front runners turned them down for the Canadian men's team.

From the BBC:
Managers of the two leading Women's Super League clubs - Chelsea's Emma Hayes and Manchester City's Nick Cushing - both decided to stay with their clubs.

Other contenders, such as former Arsenal manager Laura Harvey and British-born Canada coach John Herdman, got new jobs.

The FA said interim manager Mo Marley "did not wish to be considered for the role", while former Watford and Estonia boss Keith Boanas did not apply after previous applications were rejected.

Those 'ofs' are more offensive than the sexism. And the sexism is pretty offensive to some, I imagine.

Is he in shit for it?
Second one seems to be him having a laugh with his sister but still not a great look. That he's deleted his twitter account indicates he knows he'll be in hot water at the least.

Amazing how little time he's spent living in Spain, since you know, deciding to live in Spain.

And you're right 'of' and 'have' is a disgrace!

Exactly.Surely there is someone involved in the Women's game who has more credibility and credentials than him ?

Phil has history of making self looking like a dick on twitter. I think it's better he just keeps that account deactivated indefinitely.

How do they only find these sort of things after giving someone a job, does nobody do background checks anymore.
