Becoming a football manager...


Recommended Posts

Is there any better job?

Jose is back in the game.

Perceived failure is not a problem for getting several bites of the cherry.

You don't even need to have been a top player...Houlier, Mourinho, Ferguson, Rodgers.

And most of us think we know how to do a better job than our manager, at least half of the time!

I once read about Mark "sparky" Hughes whose payouts from his managerial careers earned him £10million. Not bad as a failure as in not winning a trophy

Always thought Mourinho was a con artiste before he came to OT.  Still, clubs keep falling for the 'catch me if you can' fecker!!! Regards. Drew.

Ed. It's jobs for the boys mate. The not so special one got sacked from cheslki, United and spurs with multi million pound pay offs and basically has a few months holiday between jobs then starts working again . Perhaps his negative,  parking the bus type tactics will suit roma and  the Italian league

If you look at his record Mourinho is unquestionably one of the great football managers up there with the likes of Ferguson, Hitzfeld, Guttman & Michels.

 Two European cups with Porto & Internationale, league championships in Portugal, Spain , Italy & England. Even at Manc Utd he finished runners up & won a European trophy and a League Cup. Ollie has won nothing for the second season running. 
 

You can bet Spurs would have looked more competitive at this seasons League Cup final but for the frankly ludicrous sacking of Mourinho days before the final.

Funniest thing I've heard for years. Up there with Fergie. 

He only won the champions league with Porto because United had a perfectly good Paul Scholes goal ruled out for offside when he was two yards onside. 

Still laughing.  Up there with Fergie.

Glad to make you laugh pal. 

I,ve always felt Fergie’s European record could have been better. Just two European cups in twenty five years wasn’t it?

Yeah just the two mate. Like you said should have been more . His Early years in Europe where limited to the you can only play / name  four foreign players rule . Which was a stupid rule for me was uefa trying to stop the best European players moving to the premiership and the big money and ruining the domestic games in other countries

Mourinho is a dinosaur who's tactics will never work in country's like England and Spain where fans now want expansive football but his style of play may be more suited in Italy and has already had success with Inter.

Worse managers than Jose get jobs though at least he has success in the elite leagues and in the Champions League, so I can see why clubs are prepared to take a punt.

Far worse managers than Jose seem to get jobs who's records are terrible.

Softening the blow...

In terms of compensation when early termination is sought.....it appears a football managers contract even beats a marriage contract...in most cases!

Its not reported very often when a sacked manager walks away with peanuts, or indeed do they remain unemployed for long.
