Episode Eighteen – What is your ultimate managerial XI?

In a week where literally nothing happened we’re back to fill the void that is the world of football.

With our country under new management, and Theresa May’s cabinet appointments about as astute as Marc Wilmot’s midfield appointments we turn our attention to coaches. We ponder the relationship between manager’s playing and coaching careers, and pose the question: “What is your ultimate managerial XI.”

Not ones to break with tradition, this week the team have scraped together some talking points and we’ll be going over these in laborious and painful detail.

With the new TV money rolling in even faster than the pound can collapse, teams are spending willy nilly. Speaking of nil willies, Jon looks to see if Middlesboro’s transfer endeavours can help them remain safely mid-tablesboro this season.

“King Content” Calum is back this week. We’ve already come to the conclusion that Ligue 1 is objectionable and not worthy of public consumption, but he’ll be addressing how such a mediocre league can produce so many of Europe’s top talents.

We all saw Ronaldo’s brief stint as manager of Portugal in the final of Euro 2016. In an era where the individual reigns supreme Sky asks how man-management has changed now that coaches are no longer always the biggest presence in the dressing room.

All this and much more beside in this week’s episode of A Team of John O’Sheas.
