What the hell is wrong with the English Media?



  • Is there an appointed England Manager that has a 100% record? He could stay in the record books.



  • Sacked because of his behaviour at the meeting not what he has done. There is also a wider investigation which has uncovered that 8 current or former EPL managers have been accused of receiving “bungs” for player transfers. Stay tuned.



  • Gooorn! I had forgotten about his shady past, this isn't his first time having the faint whiffs of corruption.

    @gollum I understand what you are saying, and i agree with you. However those things aren't what they led with, they led with the current England manager being an embarrassing prat, and successfully got him fired. The rest of the investigation will be very interesting indeed.

    Aren't their World Cup qualifiers next week? jesus what timing aye?

    @Hooroo Incredible - he covets the job for years, looks like he'll never get a chance at it, the cards fall into place in 2016 (Roy's useless Euro, Sunderland surviving and there being no alternatives), he manages for one game (100% record) and now he's gone. Sunderland must be checking the contract they gave to Moyes to see if there is a 90 day clause included.

    Replace Sam with Ewen McKenzie in this story and it reads similar...

    And England wonder why they get knocked out by Iceland in Euros, shambles of an organisation



  • Has nobody every looked at the EPL before? Redknapp has been doing these sorts of shonky deals for years! Big Sam was just sharing the tricks of the trade with people - he thought he was helping out!

    Thats the reality ... but the reality is the the England football coach must be sacked if caught doing it.

    Bit of a sting operation, but such is life.



  • So now the dust has settled a bit do you think it was justified setting him up ?



  • I'm not entirely against these sorts of things being done.

    But I am against the papers only going front-page public when they catch somebody. Say they setup Roy Hodgson in similar circumstances, but he walked away saying he would take no part in that, and said nothing wrong.

    Isn't that equally as deserving of publication?



  • @MajorRage I agree but newspapers seem to operate on two basic theories " charm and betray " and " if it bleeds it leads" so they wouldn't be too interested in a story like that.
    If this guy was actually dodgy I doubt the police were that interested in putting too many resources into something like this.

    Redknapp doing it was one of the core reasons he never got the England job - he was seen as shadey as all feck. It's also one of the reasons those old school English managers never get the big clubs, its always the shadey fuckers like West Ham, Portsmouth etc

    The 2 big nails (according to the new this morning) were him jumping into bed with guys he had zero knowledge of at the smell of £400k. Thats not a good look for an England manager (on £3m a year). And second, him going "the FA rules are shit, I can help you dodge those", when enployed by the FA (on £3m a year).



  • one manager suspended, another couple in trouble. Story is starting to have legs



  • @gollum Yep, Big Sam deserved to be sacked due to his stupidity and greed.



  • Guess the media aren't as bad as the greedy dickmunch who got caught.
