A Quickie

A quick one for you fans of football and racism. Jack Charlton reportedly claims that the next England manager should be from Great Britain. Intriguingly, Charlton says that a foreign coach would not have the 'commitment'. Mmmm, two things Jack......

  1. You are English, you managed the Republic of Ireland, therefore you were a 'foreign' manager,
  2. If a 'foreign' coach showed no commitment, by your own rationale, you didn't make a lot of effort in your job.

In other words, not only is he being rascist, he is also passing a rather harsh judgement on his tenure with the Republic of Ireland....ie he was shit.

It's times like these you realise how thick footballers actually are.
