    However we can keep on discussing this until we have won the scudetto again because I do agree with some of your points but far from all of them. I do think Brendan Rodgers accepts having a director above him in charge of the signings and I do think most of the English managers today are having this same opinion. They are not that old-minded as you want them to be.

    Yes, you don't find that many "managers" in England today as before, if the definition of a manager is one who has complete power in terms of signings. Most clubs do have a specific assigned person for this. You find this in our club as well.

    However the "Liverpool transfer committee" as the medias have dubbed it in England is not like what you find elsewhere as they have/had three persons for this in form of the managing director Ian Ayre, the "Head of Performance and Analysis" Michael Edwards and "Head of recruitment" Dave Fallows. This is in my opinion one or two persons too many and especially when they seem to have an another philosophy than the one Rodgers wanted. Look at the type of players he had a the beginning of his time in Liverpool and the type of players they have now. They don't suit his ball-positioning style of football but rather what Klopp wants with high-working players with great pace and athlethism.

    I don't blame you completely. You say/said all English managers are shit (as I remember it) to which I said there are one or two good ones which I could see be a manager of one of the top English teams but they are sadly not "exotic" enough for the club owners and their supporters. I still think Pardew and Pulis could be in charge of the major clubs without they would perform badly. Rodgers (I know he isn't English) did a fine job IMO in Liverpool but wasn't able to field his team with his "own" players due to the idiotic transfer-deciding group of people in the club. This group decided that Balotelli would be a fine enough substitute for Suarez

    However I do think like you that their coaches are shit if you look at the total amount of coaches due to the Premier League clubs not giving them the opportunities and due to them not wanting to get a job outside England.

    It is a great article which details some of the points that I have tried to make with my clumsy English. Especially this part is spot on IMO

    Few, though, would dispute the crux of Pardew's complaint: most Premier League clubs now prefer to look abroad for managers, rather than examining the talent on their own doorstep. To many chairmen and chief executives and technical directors, a coach with a taste of success in France or Germany or Spain is a better bet with their club, their investment, than an up-and-coming Englishman.

    This also mean more English managers should look outside the UK to find jobs as we discussed but then we come back to the cultural differences between the brits and us from the outside in terms of being confident enough to work in a country with an other language and culture.

    "They feel entitled, they - allegedly - created football, the FA cup is the oldest competition in history, in Tennis Wimbeldoen is the most prestigious competition."

    Exactly. This is why I do find it very difficult to root for England or one of their teams in any sports. I rather find Ireland much more appealing but I guess it has to do with the way England has treated them badly historically which just makes it even more entertaining for me to be a "supporter" of for example the Irish Rugby team.
