If HR does go and take the England job then I wouldn't mind seeing both Clive Allen and Houghton equally put in charge of first team affairs. Both are legends, and would have the respect of the players.
Whilst Clive Allen and Chris Hughton are legends I'm not sure I'd want them in charge. Personally I think they would both be superb as coaching staff or assistant managers. If we do finish top 4 I think we may need a bigger character like Harry, someone who can help draw higher profile players or someone who can man manage with the best of them.
Huge respect to Chrissy, good luck in all you do, If H does take the England job, I'd love to see him with us, but with a strong leader above him.
