Do any of them truly do anything different to the others anymore?


They all do the same coaching badges to the same license standards


They all socialise and go to the same "training day" outings with the Premier League


Why should we expect one manager to be truly different to others when they all learn the same way from the same people?

Naaa, why would you want to risk doing something different when you can get a tried and tested formula that gives you a a greater chance of survival than some maverick who might actually propel you to greater things?

Staying in the premier league is all that the club owner....and the fans..care about. x

Don't a lot go to Scotland?  Thought there was some good course up there. And Non British managers go there too I thought e.g. Mourinho. No idea what the English one is like. Most of the driving force to promote English managers is probably quenched by club owners that are at the mercy of the money in the game. I feel sorry for them in a way.

Noone nowadays takes a group of players and makes them better. They all bring in their own players

The days of clough and Robson are well gone

That's the SFA training centre at Largs, it's very highly thought of. My nephew's doing his badges as part of his uni course and has been a couple of times, sat next to Charlie Adam one day.

I suspect the ease with which players can move now has contributed to that.

I think the rule of only hiring coaches or managers who have completed their coaching badges should only apply up to Championship level.
If a well off Premier League club owner wants to spend a little money and get creative with an appointment he should be allowed to. It's mostly showbiz now anyway.

How did it work before Bosman?

Basically if your contract ran down, you were at the club's mercy. They could cut your wages, leave you out of the team, anything.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.
