Much of television is asking whether Phil Neville would make a good manager of the women’s England international football team. I think he would.
BUT for me that’s not the issue!
The issue is whether there are any able women coaches willing to take on the job?
So are there?
And if there are, what’s the FA doing appointing a male for this role?
True to form, recently Mourinho commented on managers who get very animated during football matches. Media interviewers assuming the comment was against Conte, pressed for a comment from Conte. Refusing comment at first, Conte was eventually prompted to reply, and reminded Mourinho of his own antics on the touchline for many years.
Mourinho switched matters by saying his remarks were not against Conte, but himself, and that he may be many things, but not a match fixer in Italy. So out of nowhere Mourinho decides to fire off a political missile which understandably raised the heat to slander level.
Conte felt Mourinho’s unreasonable comment required reply and called Mourinho an “amnesiac”, “little man” and a “fake”.
Having caused a furore, yesterday Mourinho announces he is not making further comments on the subject. Shame he did not keep quiet to begin with.
But that was yesterday – and because the Mourinho mouth is permanently switched on, today he has says he feels “contempt” for the row in which he and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte have traded words.
When Mourinho first hit the Premier League, I found him a breath of fresh air. Entertaining as a person, and highly effective as a coach. But now, I feel there is a chip of some kind appearing on that coaches shoulders.
Brush it off and start being an interesting human being again, Jose!!!
“Ramon Calderon, ex-president of the Spanish giants, claimed on Tuesday that a £100million bid would not be a problem for Real.” – clip from a news report.
Regularly over many years the selfish politics of Real Madrid act out without a care for other clubs and the ethical rules of football. Keep your politics inside your club Calderon. Your shenanigans gain no respect from the rest of us.
To allow the experience and leadership of John Terry to leave Chelsea would be a ‘criminal’ act against the sport of football. The Chelsea Academy of young potentials would benefit greatly from John’s commitment, knowledge and footballing nous.
He would give Chelsea the chance to progress Chelsea schooled youngsters through to the first team. Thus ending the dreadful record of frustrated Chelsea youngsters being no more than loanees to other clubs around the world.
To say nothing of the savings on purchasing high cost contracts from competing academies!
The standard of referees and linesmen is poor. And most times its not their fault.
Nowadays the game is a lot faster putting added demands on referees and linesmen. So many matches are marred by bad calls that potentially affect the game being played, the loyal fans wanting fairness, and clubs who in some cases stand to lose millions. To say nothing about being deprived of top honours due to bad decisions on the field.
Just watched a prestigious match between Manchester City and Monaco. The entertainment provided by two outstanding attacking teams was a joy. However the defence of both teams was poor, the performance by the referee was poor, and linesmen decisions were below par.
Why on earth is technology being purposely blocked with the pathetic excuse that it would kill the soul of the game. Also a very dubious Yellow Card was handed out. Wrongly delivered cards once again impinge on fairness and the future progress of the penalised team.
Backup can be provided to the match referee in a matter of seconds most times. With common sense, technology will vastly improve the fun that is football.
FOR HEAVENS SAKE BRING IN THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY AND
CLEAN UP THE BILLION POUND GLOBAL FOOTBALL INDUSTRY.
Today, Leicester City win against Hull City, 3-1.
Seems they have their dazzle back?
