The question is how many were GOOD ex-players.
Many of the best managers were mediocre players, Dalgleish being one exception.

Well thats a matter of opinion.
It also depends what you mean by mediocre.
If you played for your Country you were hardly ****.
I thought Nolan was a great pro and Kewell was decent.
The best non playing Manager ever for me was Laurie MCMenemy but he had a military background.

Re: Bits & Bobs

I can’t think of any League One Manager who isn’t an ex player.

Any particular reason why we don’t have a game in the EFL trophy this week and most others do?

true 28. being a pro especially a good one does not guarentee you being a good manager or coach. plenty have give it a go and failed maybe due to doing a job lower down than what they played in and loose patiance with lads who cannot do what they could on or off the pitch.

This is off topic; but I'll let it go!!

WBA didn't want this date as it's it International Break.

Invited clubs lead the way on the dates for fixtures. If you remember we played Middlesboro on the "reserve" date last year.

Thanks for clarifying Mr T

It seems a bizarre decision unless they plan on playing a strong 11?

Re: Bits & Bobs

Makes some sense to keep the Cat 1 clubs "on-side".

Middlesboro had a few of their younger lads on International duty; guess WBA have the same situation.

Re: Bits & Bobs

even nuneaton borough in the conference north have called off their game because of this international break thing. wonder though why teams have big squads as if players are injured they just have to get on with it.
