Default Rooney Rule

What are your thoughts people?

at least one BAME (black, Asian, minority ethnic) candidate will be interviewed to be the next England manager after Gareth Southgate.

Now in principle it sound good and I donít have a problem with it but, in certain circumstances, will they be interviewing to put a tick in the box rather than on the quality of candidate? To be fair you could based on thecshit quality of English managers these days..,

Just hire the best person for the job

How many top level black English managers are there currently? So on the likely assumption that England need a new manager in August - what if no BAMEs apply? Do they have to start sending out invites to Hughton, Keith Curle, Paul Ince etc. Just so they can tick a box?

Yes.

Not sure why that bothers people, either.

Anyone with half a brain cell can see that something fundamentally wrong is going on.

Are we really to only white people can't manage football teams? And to such a degree that white managers should out-number non-white by what seems like about 99-1? You'd have to be pretty racist to think that is right, especially when you look at who is playing the game.

The amount of non-white managers is shocking and it's great that the FA are doing something about it.

If it's just for the England job then it's pointless, it'll just mean Hughton gets an interview but doesn't get the job. If it filters down to all clubs then it will help.

I doubt very many chairman would have too much issue appointing non-white managers. All that matters to most of them is that the team performs and they keep getting the TV money. So the problem is a lot deeper than just presenting opportunities.

Yep. As our American friends would say, itís a no-brainer.

Would have to question anyone who thinks itís a bad idea

By minority ethnic do they mean relating to just England?

I mean on the world scale 20% of folk are Chinese and 20% Indian so white people are numerically in a minority Iíd have said?

Itís all very confusing.

I think itís also a bit sexist. Why exclude 50% of the world from this role? Women can be surgeons, astronauts, geologists. Why canít they manage 11multi millionaires and advise to put it in the mixer etc.?
