I think it will be a very big risk in selecting an Aussie of any description to be the England cricket coach. Especially when we will be playing a Ashes series in such a short space of time. The ECB should carefully go through the application and I sure that there is a British coach who can do the job and can get the best results and is who more suited for this and capable. This is not being prejudice(maybe just a little bit). It would not feel right winning the Ashes this way. I'm sure the Aussies would die first before picking a British coach for the Aussie cricket team. Also, the Aussie team has more problems than we have having lost two series at home. We have a great chance of winning the Ashes and make up for the last shameful defeat in Australia, but not with a Aussie coach. Possible, Duncan Fletcher could be coach again as he has a lot of respect with the England players and has something to prove after the last Aussie series.

Bill Langford - I hope you aren't being serious when you mention Mike Watkinson???? As a Lancastrian I'm gutted he's still in charge of us, let along give him charge of the National Team. Proven player he might be, experience he has, nice guy he is, top coach...... I don't think so. Lancashire have one of the best squads in the country - and the signing of Lou Vincent, the release of Stu Law and Dominic Cork, the persistance with Mark Chilton as a front line batsman. All these issues suggest that he might not be the best decision maker. Do you still want him in charge of the National Team???

I'd like to see Ashley Giles come into the England squad but in a different role to that of a coach. The captain is the man who should lead all aspects of the team from tactics to selection which is why KP should still be captain. Giles should be brought into a managerial role so he can organise team training sessions and provide advice to the captain.

Get 'Beefy' Botham in the job! He knows what he's doing and would no doubt give the England team a kick up the backside that they need in the shorter form of the game! The big back-up for him being selected is that he knows how to bat and bowl and therefore could help with both sides of the coaching. I think if he became coach he could really move this england team forward.
