  1. Send it in with your CV - they might offer you a £50K job!
  2. Hard to believe anybody thought this was genuine. But I did check the website, just to be sure!
  3. Its far more than 15 seconds. I turn my phone off, as I get goal alerts a minute before it happens on screen.
  4. You don’t have to answer, but it’s just illogical to use “vaguely described” for coloured, when person of colour is fine. My point was that these things all change, and certainly there was a time in the U.K. when “coloured” was used because black was seen as offensive.
  5. I think people just get exasperated when someone is fine with “person of colour” but offended by “coloured person”. The similarity is just too close for comfort, surely? And we all have to try and figure out whether “Black” is acceptable this year or not. The truth is that in all these issues - as in the disability field - every successive acceptable word gradually gets vetoed as it becomes seen as an insult. Crippled, handicapped, disabled are all perfectly neutral words that we use in other areas, but have been seen as an insult, so no longer allowed.
  6. Based on this, I’ve committed £10 at 25-1. Given my normal betting record, that rules him out. However, I did have £5 each way on Serpentine to win the Derby at 22-1!
  7. You make it sound as if LJ drew up these lists and then had to make do with a budget option when Messi was not available. That’s a bit flippant but I don’t think that’s how it works, is it? I thought the research team trawled the football world for players who met their playing criteria, then that would be narrowed down until there’s a shortlist for the CEO and coach to consider.
  8. I don’t really get this concern about Ashton’s role. Surely the recruitment research is far too big now for a full time coach to supervise it in addition to running the first team? And as I understand it, LJ had a veto on any players he didn’t want the club to sign. So, OK, he wouldn’t have found his own recruits, but he wouldn’t have had unwanted players foisted on him either.
  9. Alan Nixon has tweeted something along those lines.
  10. Please tell me you’re not serious!
  11. Herbert Chapman. Fantastic manager.
  12. Whoops. See the thread I just started!
  13. No inside knowledge here, but if Lowe has a shout, so surely does Wellens? I'm not recommending him but he's done well at Swindon and Alan Nixon has tweeted that RW would be his choice. I always wanted us to sign him as a player. Perhaps now is his time. But he's not short priced so far.
  14. Now now. You can’t go around saying things like that on here!
  15. Great managers stay with a club and build it up and up - like Alex Ferguson. Colin has a lot of promotions because he rarely succeeds afterwards - he tends to fail or walk during the season following the promotion. He has managed more clubs than almost anybody and that’s because his plan has no staying power.
