Tisdale as the only properly long-term manager in English League/Prem football. Everybody else in post for no longer than six years, apart from Bentley at Morecombe with nearly seven.
Currently, 77 out of the 92 have lasted less than three years.

The domestic Russia/election crisis, if it comes to a head, could scupper the best chance for a full, US-backed peace treaty in Korea for several decades.
As I see it, Trump is tempramentally more suited for reaching some kind of agreement with the Juche regime than either the too scrupulous Democrats or the traditional Republican Right.

is whether (unlike a certain Mr Keane) they can handle managing footballers of lesser talent than themselves or their colleagues during their own playing days. Do they have the ability to get the best out of what we have available (and could afford to hire), rather than becoming frustrated at the limitations? Can they find the right tactics to get results with a lower standard squad?

Ipswich Town are back where we were in April 2009.
Somewhat frustrated at not having capitalised on reaching the play-offs a few seasons before, performances having disappointed, but with the club stable, a decent crop of players and not generally in a bad position.
One poor decision - Roy Keane - has cost us the best part of a decade.

'Two thirds of Britons think EU will win Brexit talks'
Win? Win??? It's not a bl~~dy competition!
This is about negotiating a practical solution - thus necessitating compromise - to the issue of the UK separating itself from the European Union. There will have to be a degree of give-and-take. No outcome will be perfect for one side or the other.
But equally, it's not a zero-sum, "we win you lose" situation. Agreements can be beneficial (or damaging) for both parties.
Could the media and sections of the political community please stop treating Brexit as some binary contest combined with a points-scoring exercise and be sensible about things for the long-term good of the country?

don't bother trying to sign on.
After going through the entire rigmarole, interviews, producing accounts, filling in jubbly forms, you're told at the end of six weeks that it's official policy you should have made provision for your own cover and will get no money for the time you're unable to work.
What an utter shambles.
