The man from Brazil, he say NO!

Say it ain't so! Big Phil has apparently ruled himself out as Sven's successor: "The English FA is going to choose a name. My name isn't one of them because I'm closing this matter.' Maybe it was the '20 reporters outside my house' that made Scolari change his mind?

I laughed out loud when I read Big Sam's comments about how the England manager's race was still wide open – but now I wonder what inside information Big Sam was party to, 'cause he clearly knew something we didn't.
