...bravest England manager in a long time.
Might be two 0-0 draws, but a good step in the right direction.
Well done son.
|Signed ITFC football from 1982/3 season.|
at 14:25 13 Nov 2017
I appreciate it was just after the glory days, but has signatures of Wark, Butcher, Cooper, Osman, Gates, Burley and (I think) Thijsen & Mariner.
Might be disposing of it if anyone is interested.
PM me if of interest.

Heard him on Talksport the other day, spoke really well about his achievements with Lincoln last year and how the cup wasnt a distraction to their exploits in the league.
They ended up playing 60+ matches with a relatively small squad, got to the quarter finals of the FA cup (first non league team in 100 years to do that) and got promoted.
Quite a refreshing attitude, a fairly articulate guy, spoke a lot of sense and clearly has a positive approach to management.
Would love to see him given a chance at a bigger club.

...what level of job would he get if he doesnt renew his contract?
Last summer I could see a Prem club taking a chance on him. Now I think the Championship is the best he can aim for.
John Hartson said that he sees a 'big' job coming next, but I cant see it.

Really not sure what he's trying to achieve.
He's turned down Chelsea as he thinks they would want to use him as a wing back. Fair enough.
Wants to leave arsenal to play CM at a club. Fair enough.
But is he going to achieve that at Liverpool? He's no better than Henderson, Wijnaldum or Can.
Might be best served trying to get a CM role at Arsenal!!
|Rooney international retirement|

Pleased to see that he's retired.
Its the right decision for him, and also for England.
It will allow us to go into the next tournament with a fresh approach.
Great servant and player, just didnt manage to perform at a tournament post 2004.

Phil / Gav... I seem to recall it expires at the end of this season. Do you know whether the club have the option of an extra year?

.,,contract up at the end of this season?
at 20:36 15 Aug 2017
I wonder what they are thinking about their recent transfer business?!

"And the 51 year wait for England to win a major tournament goes on"
....missed the U20s this summer?!
I'd say that as big as the women's euros.

There is a lot of talk about the fee being obscene, but it does seem like a special case;
1. Qatar owners want a bit of good PR which they can gain through PSG.
2. The Qatar world cup is in 5 years.... doesnt do any harm having possibly the most high profile (and most expensive) player in the world at their pet club.
I think only PSG could justify the move.

...shouldnt have been hammered at this stage of pre-season, but he was only speaking the truth.
I actually think the fans were more out of order than he was, baiting him, recording it and then selling the video.
....and fans wonder why players seem less accessible these days.
|Mark Sampson v Sir Bobby Robson|
at 12:58 31 Jul 2017
Good on the BBC for putting a context on the England results and showing us that Mark Sampson is the best England manager since Sir Alf;
What a load of tosh. Why do the BBC always have to compare the results of the womens team to the history of the mens team? Bizarre.
