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.?
And dont forget the disabled......have to have someone with no legs interviewed

And the gays will be up in arms if one of the candidates isn't gay......so of course we have to have another one who isn't sure which gender they are too, just so as we're not discriminating

better have a vegetarian AND a vegan apply as well.

One smoker and one non smoker......one brexiter and one remoaner

One from each major and minor religion

Oh.....and one OAP....cant be ageist ffs.....so I suppose a YTS for balance too


Have we covered everybody ?

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.
All well & good but this rule should apply more at grass roots & lower league level initially . The idea is to get more ethnic, lets be honest, more black, managers into managerial positions but like everybody else they need to start at the bottom & prove themselves. its just a farce if the FA interview a candidate just because he is black.

You canít control that, though. If clubs want to hire inexperienced young managers then they will do so. What you can try to control is a sense of equal oppprtunity, which is what this is about.

I agree that at grass roots then ethnicity should be encouraged - Iím all for that. However straight at the top level seems a bit of a token gesture.

If Pep was black, white, Brian, yellow, had one leg and bisexual heíd still get the top jobs regardless

i remembers back in the 90s wondering why there were so few asian footballers. South asian specifically. Wasn't worried about far east, they weren't really sporty, but the UK was full of south asians.
Now you can't swing a cat without hitting one.
Were they held back? or had their communities not yet acclimatised to british culture?
What black or asian manager has been held back? if they're good enough, they'll get the job imo. this is not america.

You know why Pakistan never do well?

Every time they get a corner they open a load of counter attacking opportunities for he Opposition due to their tendency to put too many players in the box and leave themselves open to conceding a goal on the break.
Once they get that sorted and tighten up defensively there's no reason they can't climb up the world rankings imho.
