Major Clanger


Hasselbaink of QPR
Cellino of Leeds
Wright of Barnsley

Latest names set to be revealed

Not that shocked, or arsed to be honest!

Out of those three, Cellino passed the FA's ultra-rigorous fit and proper person test. At the second attempt, granted, but still.

I don't even know who Wright is

It's probably too late to bother to learn it now. :)

He's just been taped taking an actual envelope stuffed full of actual 20 notes. How fucking stupid can you get?

I'm wanting bigger names than that.

Bet they bottle it and don't name the premier league ones.

They'll name everyone they have video evidence of.

Interesting to see they're all British. There does seem to be a bung culture amongst the British managers.

Ohhh but they never get a chance apparently

At least they don't dive. Diving is a filthy foreign habit.

To be fair though, since the Telegraph used British agents as bait, it's no surprise that mostly British managers were caught. Had they got Raiola to co-operate, you would've seen a lot more nations represented.

Not to be all sceptical about this but set to expose what? JFH was caught on camera talking about being paid to go and talk in Asia, so what, since whens that been illegal or wrong??

And saying he'll sign players in return. The talk is obviously just a disguise for the payment, and everyone round the table was aware of that.

Jesse fucking lingaard and Glen Johnson

Laughable

With Lingard you can say that he called him up to see what he's like or as encouragement for a young player. But Johnson?

............' Hendo ' as the RS call him , is the new Gerrard FFS.

Coincidentally "Hendo" is also the name of the ancient Japanese samurai martial art of looking tough.

What seems like a long drawn out affair considering he was apparently the only candidate Southgate has finally been appointed England manager. A very beige appointment, England have gone from being a desirable job for top name managers to struggling to find anyone other than their U21 manager.

It's like you get home from the pub late at night, you're drunk and you're starving. You open the fridge, but there's only one piece of shrivelled cheese in there. You know you must eat and you know there's nowt else. How bad does the cheese have to look for you to still hesitate for about an hour before eating it?

That's exactly how bad Gareth Southgate is.

I can't decide whether this is Olympic level straw-clutching or sarcasm from the Beeb.

Good.

I don't agree with some of the picks and I don't think Southgate is good enough but fair play to him picking his own squad.

It's not like he's spoilt for choice but that's one grim fucking squad.

Typical British mentality

Have a centre half who's decent on the ball and he gets put in midfield.

We did it with King and Ferdinand and it didnt work, so it's not going to work with Stones

It's just the direction of shifting that is typically British, Guardiola and all the other hipster managers are mad for playing a midfielder in central defence.
