    He should probably be a bit careful about calling people a “black shit” on television, then. People can be funny like that.

    I do not think either he is a racisst, but I think he is an old vulgar ignorant man with an awful vocabulary. He should have been sacked for his comments, totally out of order, even if I do not think h e is a racist.

    Hmmm. It is also becoming apparent that he may be a tactical magician. Bringing on Raul and Fabregas at half-time last night was a master-stroke. Would I accept a “vulgar ignorant man with an awful vocabulary” as England coach, if it meant that he would give them an excellent chance of winning the World Cup? It’s a tough one to call.

    You could have had the best of both worlds in Guus Hiddink if the FA didn’t always insist on approaching top class coaches to take part in some sort of DSS job club.

    It reminds me of a story I heard about Morrissey, when he had no record deal a few years ago.

    One of the major labels invited him in for a meeting and asked to hear some demos.

    Mozz said: “Go to HMV. They’ve got about eight.” Then left.

    I have no idea why that shower expect guys like Hiddink and Scolari to put up with a three-month fuck about while the fine custodians of the English game try and weigh up their talents against Alan Curbishley.
