    Default Rooney Rule

    Starting next season every club with a manager vacancy has to interview someone who’s ‘BAME’.

    Load of bollocks if your good at your job you’ll get a job - See Chris Hughton.

    If your shit you get laughed at - See Tom ‘man of the match’ Ince’s dad

    Ticks a target box for HR, enabling employers to feel good about themselves by pretending to themselves and everyone else that they’re doing something positive towards equality.

    Soon clubs will be pressured to appoint someone not qualified, it’s not about race its ability.

    If we needed a manager I’d like Hughton, not because of his skin colour because he’s successful at our level, someone earning something on merit imagine that

    In the same way I wouldn’t want Paul Ince, not because he’s black but because he’s fucking shit

    What if nobody of ethnic background applies?

    These potential managers will feel really good about themselves knowing they are only there to tick a box rather than by merit.

    The reason these race issues exist is because we continue to highlight peoples colour.

    Get Chris Cohen to officially register as Minority Ethnic. Problem solved.

    When I read the thread title I thought it meant that footballers now have to shout abuse into the camera after underperforming when their fans have paid thousands of pounds to travel halfway round the world to watch them.

    I suspect there are a disproportionate number of black players compared to the general population. Too racist. Give the young white players an equal chance.

    If they can't find anyone who's BAME do they have to find someone who's BLACE?

    I thought for a while this rule meant you had to interview an ugly bloke who shags grannies?

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Back in July.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Don't think this will make an awful lot of difference tbh. Being shortlisted doesn't mean you're any closer to getting it if there's a better candidate.

    What about all the managers who haven't been good at the job but still get new ones? Or new managers with no prior experience? What percentage of those being invited for interviews are white do we think?


    To be fair, Paul Ince was a good manager at Macclesfield and Milton Keynes.
