  1. Cheers!

    So there we have it. We're no closer to knowing who the next England manager will be, but we've all had a good chinwag, and I for one have enjoyed myself.

    Make sure you tune in tomorrow as the build-up and anticipation for the Open Championship and Pakistan Test series reach fever pitch. 

    See you later!

  2. Get involved


    And here are your last suggestions. And in-keeping with the theme of last orders at the bar, I think we've come across the kind of ideas that seem good around midnight, not so much in the morning...

    Philip Stothers: Ronnie McFall, the ex-longest serving manager in Europe for Portadown. He'd do a job at England I'd say.

    Kayleigh Millen: Owen Coyle or Nigel Clough... both born in 1966 - a good year for English football! Omen?

    Dietrich Jeffreys: An excel spreadsheet with an algorithm which picks the players based on form. Brian Blessed providing the vocals.

  3. The case for Allardyce

    England manager vacancy

    Sam Allardyce

    Not everyone might be enamoured with the idea of Sam Allardyce as England manager but there are people putting the case for the Sunderland boss.

    West Ham co-chairman David Gold, who worked with him from 2011-15, told BBC Radio 5 live he "would make a very good England manager" and the Guardian's Louise Taylor agrees.

    Taylor, who has covered Sunderland for a number of years, writes: "Sunderland’s manager is surely the right man, in the right place, at the right time to not only breathe new life into the England team but challenge all sorts of dubious received wisdoms currently pervading Football Association philosophy."

  4. Cook wants Howe to stay

    England manager vacancy

    Eddie Howe

    Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe ticks boxes as a potential England boss: young, English, fashionable (in a footballing sense, though there's nothing wrong with his club tracksuit), successful.

    But one man who is hoping that he doesn't get that call from the FA is new signing at Goldsands Lewis Cook.

    Former Leeds man Cook, 19, told Bournemouth's website: "The manager has done great things here and likes working with young players. 

    "You need to look for those managers who want to improve young players and he has the faith in me to try to improve - I’m excited."

    I wonder if he's for Bruce or Allardyce?

  5. Bruce? How have we sunk this low? - Telegraph journalist

    Steve Bruce

    As you'll know if you've been keeping us company on this drizzly Tuesday, we've been discussing who the next England manager will be rather extensively. 

    Alistair Tweedale, sports data reporter for the Telegraph, has been taking a look into Steve Bruce's claim for the job. 

    It's fair to say that it hasn't turned out too well for the big Northumberlander. Take a read here.

  6. Bastian Schweinsteiger marries tennis ace Ana Ivanovic

    Ana Ivanovic & Bastian Schweinsteiger

    The Germany captain Bastian Schweinsteiger has tied the knot with Serbian tennis star Ana Ivanovic in a glamorous wedding at Venice City Hall.

    The couple have been in a relationship since 2014 and had told friends to keep the dates from July 11 to 13 free for a celebration.

  7. Sorry Ash...

    We mentioned earlier that it's Luke Shaw's 21st birthday today. Here he is with team-mate Ashley Young, who I think it's fair to say does not look 21 any longer...

  8. Villa interested in Bristol City striker Kodjia


    Birmingham Mail

    Aston Villa are interested in signing Bristol City striker Jonathan Kodjia, 26, who scored 20 goals in 48 appearances last season, according to the Birmingham Mail.

    Moving to Ashton Gate for £2 million, Kodjia was a shining light in Bristol City's first season back in the second tier of English football.

  9. Is Falcao back?

    "Never give up. Work hard. Step by step. You can go anywhere."

    The Columbian striker, 30, endured a torrid time in the Premier League, spending one season each at Manchester United and Chelsea.

    But could he back? He's scored in three consecutive pre-season games for Monaco, so don't bet against him recapturing the kind of form that made him so prolific at Porto and Atletico Madrid.

  12. Olympics once in a lifetime opportunity - Rose


    Justin Rose

    Justin Rose will be competing for Team GB at the Olympics along with Danny Willett and has been speaking about the number of dropouts.

    “It’s clearly disappointing, I’m not going to say it isn’t," he said.

    "The Olympics is about the best of the best going head to head no matter what the sport, so golf has been hit quite hard in that respect. I like to think the 10 guys are skipping Rio rather than skipping the Olympics. 

    "There are some concerns for some of the guys, especially guys with young families or those hoping to start families. I sympathise with them, but from my point of view I see it as a once in a lifetime opportunity and it’s about being part of something bigger than your sport.

    "For one of the top players from the States it is still a massive achievement to win gold, but it wouldn’t change their career as much as others. Maybe some of the top players in the world feel the risk is too great.”

  13. Matthews takes Stage 10

    Tour de France

    Australian Orica BikeExchange rider Michael Matthews has won Stage 10 of the Tour de France, beating Peter Sagan to the line. 

    Keep up with all the reaction here.

  14. Ed Clancy comes clean

    Track Cycling

    Turns out Olympic track cycling gold medalist Ed Clancy has been looking after his team GB colleague Emma Pooley's wash bag. We've got a feeling she'll let you keep it Ed.

  15. Get involved


    Ollie Johnston: Last English manager to win England's top tier was Howard Wilkinson with Leeds. Maybe that needs looked at instead of players.

    Mark Tolan: Sean Dyche for England. His development of the club, style of play and passion at Burnley have been excellent.

    Ben Murray: Left-field choice, but took England to a semi-final with a bunch of confident, relaxed individuals, how about Mark Sampson?

    John Ghoti: Rafa Benitez is the ideal England manager, great tactician, not bothered about names, loads of top level experience.

    It's exceptional that we're still coming up with new names at this time - good show all round. Give yourselves a pat on the back and maybe treat yourself to an afternoon flapjack. 

    It's last orders at the bar to get your suggestions in, so make sharp at #bbcsportsday.

  17. Vermaelen heading back to London?

    Football gossip

    Thomas Vermaelen

    Thomas Vermaelen could be on the verge of ending his spell at Barcelona, with reports in Spanish media suggesting he has been put up for sale.

    Roma have reportedly had an offer rejected for the 30-year-old Belgian defender, with West Ham said to be interested.

    The former Arsenal captain is valued at €12m (£10.1m).

  18. On this day...


    Novak Djokovic

    2015: Top seed Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer 7-6 (7/1) 6-7 (10/12) 6-4 6-3 to win the Wimbledon men's singles title.

    He didn't follow it up with another win this year however - Andy Murray took that crown...

  19. I knew I was going to win - Watson


    Heather Watson & Henri Kontinen

    Heather Watson has been reflecting on her Wimbledon mixed doubles win with Henri Kontinen. 

    “I’m so happy to win a Wimbledon title and I’ll take it any form - singles, doubles, mixed doubles whatever," she said.

    "From when I went to sleep the night before, it was on my mind that I was going to win, and when I woke up, I knew I was not going to leave the court without the trophy.

    "I wanted to play with Henri in the French Open but we didn’t make the cut because of our rankings. We jokingly said over lunch one day we should sign up for Wiimbledon, so we did.

    "Our personalities gel and we get on well together and are relaxed, which allows us to play our best tennis. Our chemistry was great and we just had fun.”

  20. Post update

    A Question of Sport Teaser

    Earlier in the day, the committed among you will have noticed that we asked who the four players to score in a European Championship final as a substitute were.

    The men to do it were... Juan Mata, Fernando Torres, David Trezeguet and Sylvain Wiltord.

    Not a bad little group of goalscorers, eh? 

    Get it right? Well done you.
