Long-term contenders include PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor, former Football League chairman Keith Harris and Rick Parry, Liverpool’s chief executive. Tomorrow’s FA Board meeting will also quash speculation regarding the possibility of Sven-Goran Eriksson quitting as England manager in the wake of Crozier’s resignation.
