    Personally, I thought it should have been a

    If anyone was surprised that Henry was a rubbish manager they probably need a new hobby. His punditry was almost always incredibly superficial and one dimensional; add to that his enormous ego that oozes out of every pore and it was obvious that he was going to fail and fail badly.
    Excuse me, do you know why Scoles has left? I assume you think he was sacked???

    Finances? That's no excuse, I'm afraid. It'll be the same wherever he goes looking for coaching or managerial work; football clubs always tell extravagant porkies about their prospects.

    The question for him is, Do I actually want to be a football manager or not.

    "Plenty of strikers can score goals," he said, gesturing to the famous old stands casting shadows around us.

    "But a lot have found it difficult wearing the number 9 shirt for The Arsenal."

    No, not just finances, owner telling him to pick certain players...all sorts of off field stuff

    Same difference. The Real Madrid manager must deal with all of that too.

    I think Scholes simply doesn't really fancy it, Like Henry, Gary Neville, even TA6.

    'I spoke to Ryan Giggs when he was leaving United. I told him, "Ryan, be careful. Once you are out there, you are not Ryan Giggs — Manchester United legend. It counts for nothing. Pick the wrong club, you're gone and everyone thinks you're a failure."

    'My first club was Sheffield United. We were going to bring this player in, that player, start building something. First week, the chief executive told me we were struggling to pay the wages. I thought, "You can't do this to me, I was captain of Manchester United". But that's how it is.
    There's all kinds of excuses, of course there is, but the difference with someone like Steve Bruce there is that he actually wants to be a football manager; he understands that you just have to get on with it.
