It shouldn't be the norm and for established countries like England and Scotland to seek foreign coaches for their national team is mind-boggling.

Just to elaborate on the Scottish manager theme, A.C.Ferguson has won 12 English titles(plus this season`s), 5 English Cups & a League Cup, George Ramsey(born in Glasgow & the most successful manager in England until Sir Govan) won 6 titles with Aston Villa @ the turn of the 19th/20thC plus 6 runners up & 5 Cup wins and twice was runner up, Matt Busby 5 titles and 2 FA Cup wins plus 2 runners up(although Murphy was actually in charge in 1958 while Busby recuperated after Munich) and Frank Watt(Newcastle) & Kenny Dalgish both had 4 title triumphs and both had 2 Cup wins. 66 titles won by English managers and 39 by Scots & 82 to 35 in the FA Cup when, if the respective populations are considered, England should have nine times the number of winning managers. Ferguson & Ramsey are the top 2 title winning managers & Scots have 6 of the top 10 spots and Ramsey, Tom Mitchell(Blackburn Rovers) & Fergie are 1st, 2nd & 3rd most succesful Cup winning bosses. Come on `arry, only half a dozen more trophies to win to get onto the lists!
