What do you all reckon?
Should he be allowed to mangage us without this UEFA Pro license?
it'll be funny. and graeme souness shouldn't be allowed to manage with all the licenses under the sun.
He knows the club well, he's a decent and intelligent bloke, he's played with McClaren for 5 years now, so he must have picked something up and he already knows his backroom staff.
I hope he does a good job. He deserves it.
I saw this on SkySports I did actually think of you James, then I laughed. I say give him a chance, surely the Boro board must think he's suitable for the task.
It's a farce. if there are rules, they should be abided (?) by. Goes for Newcastle/Roeder aswell. Otherwise, there's no fricking point.
It's also too early for him personally, and he will fall on his arse. I think.
rules, and not laws. The rules are bent all the time. If we think he's god enough to manage the club, why does he need badges to say he is? I'm assuming Graeme Souness had this badge, and look how shit he was. What exactly are they teaching them?
Southgate has a thinner head and a pointier nose.
All the chairman will support it too, cause it will mean 6 easy points for everyone next season
Glenn who? Oh yeah I remember...
GLENN ROEDER, YOU'VE ONLY GOT GLENN ROEDER, YOU'VE ONLY GOT GLENN ROEDER!!
(says you "of relegating clubs")
After what he did last season, I'm more than confident in him to do well.
What has Southgate ever done as a manager?
Therefore the question is void.
Besides Peter Reid, Alan Ball, Joe Royle, Graham Taylor, and Howard Wilkinson all have experience...
As did Kenny Dalglish, Bobby Robson, Graeme Souness...
but Bobby is a legend. He was only sacked because our chairman is a twat.
It is a big risk though, even more so than the one we have taken. We have already seen what Roeder can do with Newcastle and he wasn't making the transition from player to manager.
It was announced today, Sky Sports News seems to think it's more important than World Cup right now.
world cup hype/build up/ team news/ rumours/ infact anything world cup related >>>>>>>>> boro's latest "manager" talk
I think it was Frank Skinner that said something like news like this provokes the same reaction as when you hear that Great Britain have won a medal at the Olympics for curling...
