  • Another England manager goes.

    This one only lasted a game.

    There are suggestions that Aresnal's manager Wenger could be in the frame.

      For the next manager I'd suggest the FA appoint an incorruptible foreigner, perhaps Platini or Blatter.

            Strange. I can't get the link to work when it's copied and pasted.
            This is the website; http://waterfordwhispersnews.com/
            It's at the bottom of the page.

              It wasn't just about money it was him slagging off all and sundry.

              I would suggest going to the Himalayas and finding some abbot who has no knowledge of football whatsoever (which given recent performance of England will not make much difference to the team's performance), no desire for fame or riches and who is courteous and polite to all. He should however be the master of some ancient and mysterious Eastern art such as being in two places simultaneously (avoiding offside problems), moving from one location to another without passing trough the intervening space (or defenders) or manipulating an object (such as a ball) by the power of thought alone (very useful for goal keepers and penalty shootouts).. These powers he should endeavour to teach his team. If he is also so holy that he can work miracles this will also be important as the England team will need a few.

                  As the England manager is paid three million pounds a year, can I suggest me!

                    A scoop from the Daily Mash, apparently "The Trumpy One" as he will henceforth be known is set to abandon his presidential aspirations in order to take on a bigger, more important role. Ready to cheer on Trumpland Raiders in the World Cup?

                      Not sure that the tactic of building a wall round the England goal mouth is really viable

                        And getting the opposition to pay for it!

                          Something I have never understood about football.

                          when the players fail to perform, why is it the manager that cops the blame?

                          and what is a manger's role other than a glorified orange boy anyway? A coash trains the team, the physio sees to the teams fitness, the club makes player purchaces frequently based on what they can afford, rather than what they want...what does a manger actually do?

                          Or am I an ignoramus in this field of endevour? i'll answer that question myself...YES..

                          so, I can rightly ask a dumb question then...what does this glorified office worker DO thats so vital for a team of any kind that he has to be sacked when its the players that are not performing?

                            It looks like Gareth @Southgate will be the next England Manager to be sacked.
