    Funny that they are trying to move away from male involvement in the female game, but the other way round is apparently fine.....

    And yeah, that is not going to happen

    Sport in general is definitely moving towards more male involvement in female games. By 'male' I mean 'birds with dicks', of course.

    Dunno. You could certainly imagine someone trying it on. Even if it only lasted six months, think of the great publicity for the club in question. And after all, what difference would it make, like the kerfuffle over black managers.

    Frau Weigman herself might even fancy it.

    "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."

    Oh it will, some mad club like Wolves will give it crack. It'll fail miserably but they can say we tried.

    I suppose it wouldn't be any worse than appointing someone like Conte

    Well, thatís a case in point. Black players make up a large percentage of PL players and yet the managerial path has, so far, been a bit of a disaster.
    The concept of a WSL manager landing a role at the top table, against the backdrop of directing a group of players, displaying a yawning chasm in ability compared with their male counterparts is risible.
    It would represent a huge halibut around the face of aspiring black and, or championship club managers.
    Itís like offering the local manager of a community building society, a seat on the board of HSBC.

    It's nonsense, I agree. Still, someone will have a go; if it doesn't work, you fire them and move on.

    How long do Premier League managers last anyway? On average, a couple of seasons (it must be even worse down the divisions). And that means you can try lots of different people. Managing doesn't need to be a meritocracy; failure is part of the game.

    True but this is quite a specific job spec, Youíll struggle to garner an ounce of respect from the players if the managerís experience extends to, toe punts and fluffed passes seen at an under 15ís schoolboy level.
    Wenger didnít have a great playing CV but he did pull on a shirt of sorts and was also a great innovator.
    Itís the pundits I mostly feel sorry for, mind. All those years of experience and grizzled insight and then having to share a platform with some token ex WSL hoofer at the behest of a wet behind the ears, bien pensant, producer. 😁
