Football Games - who is the next England Manager
 

So who is going to be our next England Manager?
The FA are a complete bunch of useless individuals that come from a land that is so far removed from the World that we all live that it is no wonder that they keep wasting our time, money and ambition.
Why not let Alan Sugar run the FA?  Get rid of the current useless regime, then maybe we will get the right manager at the right price with the right skills and the same ambition and desire as the rest of us....come on Alan you know you want to.

So who is going to be the next England Manager?  We here that Stuart Pearce has 'kindly' offered to make himself available....thanks Stuart but is he really the man for the job.  The fans favourite, Harry Redknapp has made a commitment to Tottenham.  Do we really want a part time Manager?  What about Alan Curbishley…..not been in Management for a while but does that matter?  Just turned down Wolves (well done Alan).  How about Harry part time with David Beckham as support?   Not my preferred just throwing it out there as food for thought.  I hear Roy Hodgson is one of the leading contenders….possible but seems to struggle to get the best out of the ‘starletts’.  For Footballwinners it has to be English…we do not want foreign and we definitely do not want Scottish.  

 

Come on FA get it right for once!

Rangers in Administration
 

How can one of the top two teams in Scotland end up in Administration?  Why are football clubs so badly run?  There is so much greed in football this is why clubs like Rangers and Portsmouth end up in Administration.

I am a Bristol City supporter and I would hate to see my club in administration or go bust and disappear but why is it the football clubs are immune from normal business practices?  We are in a recession that has seen some well known, well loved brands disappear from our high streets, so why are football clubs allowed to continue.  It is about time the government stopped stepping in and allowed clubs to go bust and disappear.  That has to be the only way to get the message out to the rest of the operators of the football clubs that this is a business and must be run like one.  Need to learn to balance the books and stop paying ludicruios wages to average players.

I don't want to see anyone's club go bust but at the same time this nonsense must stop.
