    Indeed, a penetrating insight into the finer nuances and intricacies of today's modern game!...

    This quote is up there with Jack Charlton's "You've got to put the ball in the net to score a goal!" insight.

    Perhaps he should have elaborated by saying that if you play dire, clueless, totally disorganised rubbish, you don't win football matches either!...

    See, that would have been a half-sensible way to have opened the discussion!

    Of course, it would have entailed making all of the admissions to which your refer.

    The radio 5 discussion before the match had some comment about football being a very simple game and that some managers over complicate it, something that Sherwood didn't do.
    I've never understood that - if the manager's job is simply to put your arm round Adebayor and tell him to play however he likes then we should hire someone from the local job centre and save the £M salary.
    The truth is that only a handful of people have been proven to be good long-term managers and that means it is a very difficult job. That doesn't mean I think Sherwood is a disaster - he might be one of the good ones and he is not likely to do much harm.

    &#8220;What a difference a week makes. This week I feel like a football coach. Last week I felt like Britney Spears&#8217; choreographer.&#8221;

    Realises that we can't win without scoring, yet plays one up front and no creative midfielders against a side that's only been getting points through it's defensive ability. <doh>
    Rests players for the midweek game, then rests them again on the weekend and persists with a group that had a tough tie on "brown concrete". <doh>

    Danny Blanchflower once told his team to equalise before the other team scores!

    He also suggested to let the fans in free and charge them to get out.

    Irish blarney but sometimes it makes sense...I think!

    Just one of the reasons why fans loved Danny. His footballing skills were probably first on their list.

    Terrific player. Along with John White, he was at the creative heart of the double side..

    Striker Robin van Persie, 30, would not have signed for Manchester United in August 2012 if he knew then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson was leaving the club, says Dutch coach Raymond Verheijen.
