Byline: Dave Kidd

THERE were rumours this week that the reason for the FA's smug silence, as the nation frets over the lack of any England manager, was that they had Pep Guardiola in the bag. The FA's news blackout, and their scorchedearth policy towards any speculation over the appointment, is apparently designed to make us all feel calm and reassured, with 40 days to go before the Euros kick-off. So when Stuart Pearce came out with his 'don't panic, I'll pick the squad' outburst, we'll naturally assume that Pep is being fitted up for his Three Lions blazer and it's all part of some cunning smokescreen.
