    Background: The Committees of the F.A. which have been considering the future of English football have examined some aspects in detail and progress has been made.

    At a meeting on the 14th February, 1974, the Executive Committee set up a Sub Committee with the following terms of reference. "To consider our future policy in respect of the promotion of International Football". Following meetings, a unanimous recommendation was submitted to the Executive Committee that Sir Alf Ramsey should be replaced as the England Team Manager.

    This recommendation was accepted unanimously by the Executive Committee.

    He has been informed of this decision. For practical reasons his duties will cease with effect from the 30th April. A new Manager will be appointed in due course, but it has not been possible to take any positive nation in this matter until this announcement has been made.

    In view of the forthcoming International matches in the Home International Championship and against Argentina and the three matches in the European Tour, it was decided that a Caretaker Manager should be appointed. With the approval of the Coventry F.G., Mr. Joe Mercer has agreed to undertake this task. It should be stated that he daces not wish to be considered for the job of permanent Manager so that immediate steps will be taken to appoint the new England Team Manager as soon as possible.

    The Football Association wishes at this time to record its deep appreciation of all that Sir Alf has accomplished and the debt owed to him by English football for his unbending loyalty and dedication and the high level of integrity he has brought to World Football.
