More than three weeks after Roy Hodgsons resignation, the search for the next England manager has reached its conclusion. Sky Sports News HQ understands that Sam Allardyce will be ratified as Roy Hodgsons replacement at an FA board meeting on Thursday. Allardyce to be England boss SSN HQ understands that Sam Allardyce is to be the next England manager. But who are the three men on the FA panel that picked the new man, and what were they looking for? Here, we take a look... Who will pick the new boss?FA chief executive Martin Glenn, FA technical director Dan Ashworth and FA vice-chairman David Gill.What are their credentials?Glenn admitted that he was not a football expert during a press conference alongside Hodgson last month, but has been in his role at the FA since March of last year.He spent most of his career as a branding expert in advertising before joining the FA - hiring Gary Lineker as the face of Walkers crisps in 1992. Roy Hodgson and Martin Glenn faced the media after the Iceland defeat at Euro 2016 Glenn is an FA Level One qualified coach, but has not coached or managed at any professional level. He spent time as a non-executive director at Leicester City from 2002 to 2006, but he has never appointed a manager before.He has also overseen the use of a number of ex-England players including Joe Cole, Phil Neville, Rio Ferdinand and Steven Gerrard getting involved in Englands younger representative sides.Ashworth, meanwhile, joined the FA in 2012 where he rose to his current role. He came to prominence during his time at West Brom, where he worked alongside Hodgson - with the former England boss playing a key role in bringing Ashworth to the FA. Dan Ashworth is part of the FAs three-man panel deciding the new boss He helped with the appointments of Roberto Di Matteo, Hodgson and Steve Clarke at The Hawthorns, while he also oversaw the appointment of Mark Sampson to manage the England womens side, who finished third at last summers World Cup.He was released by Norwich as a teenager having failed to make it as a defender, but does hold a coaching Pro Licence. He has also previously worked at Peterborough and Cambridge.Gill was formerly the chief executive at Manchester United from 2003 until 2013, leaving at the same time as Sir Alex Ferguson. He remains on the board of directors at the club. Former Manchester United chief executive David Gill with Sir Alex Ferguson He was appointed vice-chairman of the FA in 2012, having been on the board for several years and also holds positions on the UEFA executive committee and is the UK vice-president on the FIFA executive committee.He has never before overseen a managerial appointment, but would have been consulted on the appointment of David Moyes at Manchester United in 2013.What were they after?There were initial reports that Gareth Southgate was reluctant to take on the role temporarily while the FA waited for a more appetising appointment such as Arsene Wenger to become available. Glenn recently confirmed they were not after a short-term solution.The possibility of the FA appointing a foreign boss for the third time was opened up when Glenn declared that they want the best person for the job regardless of nationality. Steve Bruce (left) was also in the England frame Whatever the country of origin, Glenn was keen to stress the importance of the England manager liaising with all age-groups in order to improve English football.For Ashworth, that is likely to mean buying into the notion of England DNA - the concept he launched in 2014 and was described at the time as the start point for the creation of a world-class approach of elite player development leading to winning England teams.Was anyone else involved?Lots of people. Glenn is believed to have taken the initiative in canvassing the views of a number of former England players in order to gain a better understanding of the reasons for Englands perceived under-performance in major tournaments. Greg Dykes last act as FA chairman will be to ratify the new appointment Who is on this board?There are 12 people on the FAs board. As well as Glenn and Gill, there is chairman Greg Dyke (who stands down after Thursdays meeting) and the National Game representatives Barry Bright, Roger Burden, Jack Pearce and Mervyn Leggett.The Professional Game representatives are Ian Lenegan, Peter McCormick and Jeremy Moxey, while independent non-executive directors Roger Devlin and Heather Rabbatts are involved too.Although Glenn, Ashworth and Gill recommend their choice of England manager, it is the entire board that ratifies that decision. Glenn says the FA are looking for a long-term England manager to replace Hodgson Who was on the shortlist?Jurgen Klinsmann was the focus of considerable speculation and quickly became the bookmakers favourite for the job. However, it soon emerged that two Englishmen had been interviewed for the role - Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce and Hulls Steve Bruce.Allardyce visited Gills Cheshire home and met with all three of the FA panel, while Hull confirmed earlier in the week that Bruce had held informal discussions over the job.What happens next?Sunderland and Hull both expressed a desire for the decision to be made quickly, with the former describing the speculation as extremely damaging and thus putting the FA under pressure to finalise their plans. Thursdays meeting with the 12-man board was the obvious time for the panel to present their decision.With contract details to be finalised, a formal announcement may take a little longer. However, it seems certain that the identity of Englands next manager will be officially confirmed very soon. Also See: Allardyce to be England boss FA to update 12-man board Sparky Anderson Jersey .

Jack Morris Jersey . -- James Harden scored 31 points, including 25 in the second half, and the Houston Rockets dug out of a double-digit, first-half hole to beat the Orlando Magic 101-89 on Wednesday night. Jeimer Candelario Jersey . -- Brad Gushue of St.REGINA - Olympic gold-medal favourite Mark McMorris is in "great spirits," despite a fall that fractured a rib and nearly derailed his dream. Don McMorris, the snowboarders father, says Mark is moving around quite well after the incident during Saturdays slopestyle event at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colo. "When we left him (Sunday), he could bend over and touch his toes because of where (the injury) is at," Don McMorris told The Canadian Press on Monday. "You know a cracked rib in the front, you couldnt do that, but where its at (around the back), he could bend to his toes and could raise his knees up to kind of his chest. "He was really doing better than we all thought. Hes got five or six days before he has to worry about riding and hes got the best people around him." Mark McMorris caught his snowboard on the lip of a rail and went sliding down the bar on his right side before landing hard on the snow during the final. He stayed on the ground for a few minutes before riding down the hill under his own power. It seems the 20-year-old Regina native lost focus. "He probably hit that rail through the week, I dont know 50 times, and never had a problem with it or any of the rails because thats, I think, one of the strongest parts of his riding," said Don McMorris, who was in Aspen when his son fell. "But obviously he was focused on what he was going to do on the jump line because he was going to try something pretty major." Don McMorris says his son didnt hurt much at first, but the pain got worse as the afternoon wore on. Mark McMorrris finished with a silver medal at the event, but was "pretty down," said his father.dddddddddddd Mark McMorris had said being an Olympian is a dream come true. He was the two-time defending Winter X Games champion in slopestyle. When he was named to the Olympic team earlier this month, McMorris said hes been "preparing like a mad man." The fall raised questions as to whether he could compete in Sochi. "He was really scared, not necessarily about his own well-being, I dont think, but that he wouldnt get to go to the Olympics," said Don McMorris. "That was really playing on his mind and when he does that, he just gets really quiet and doesnt really talk or say much to anybody. "And you could just tell that he was really scared and worried about not getting to fulfil his dream." The elder McMorris says the tough part was waiting to hear what the team doctors had to say. He describes it as an agonizing wait of about three hours. They eventually decided Mark would go to Sochi, as planned. "I cant tell you what he said because that would not be printable," joked Don McMorris. "He was really relieved." A fractured rib usually takes six weeks to heal, so Mark McMorris wont have time to fully recover before the Games start Feb. 7. But his father is cautiously optimistic. "Yes, Im optimistic, (I) have to be," he said. "I mean maybe too optimistic because theres going to be a lot of pain and . . . you dont know how the body will react, but compared to what it could have been, were pretty happy." ' ' '
