Sam on the slam

Sam on the slam

Considering he`s probably only second to Arsene Wenger in bringing overseas players to the Premier League, Big Sam has taken an almighty sideswipe at the Frenchman by claiming that foreign coaches are ruining our league now. Given the successes of Mourinho, Benitez and Wenger some might consider it a bit of a no-brainer that he`s come out with something like this. However the likes of Perrin and Santini pose a potential counter argument. Sam said:

'None of the foreign coaches or managers are any better than what comes through this country. We seem to think we don't need to look after our own and we do. All the other countries do. They wouldn't be so affable about employing foreign coaches like we do, certainly not in Holland, Italy, Spain or Germany. We have to look at what we have within. We are all qualified.

Alan Curbishley (West Ham manager) brought it to my attention. He said, 'do you realise that with more foreign owners coming in there is less chance of managing clubs in our own country?' The consequences are the same as not developing your own players. English managers will think, 'what is the point?' The long-term effect will be a lack of desire, top players who have the capabilities of becoming top coaches won't end up doing it.'

I will never tire of hearing the diatribe from this fat walrus. He is like a cross-breed between Freund and Jabba the Hut. Didn't he alter your all English defence from last year to an all-foreign Fat Samantha bought equally inefficiant one before bemoaning the lack of Englishmen at Arsenal? I can't wait for the next edition of the Fat Sam talks utter bollox diaries. Oh how we long to have a league of english gentlemen in management so we can watch an eight foot centre half belt the ball 100 yards to an eight foot centre forward flicking the ball past the keeper.

I thought we played some great football on Saturday. Not quite up there with the Emirates purists but it was miles better than the Roeder/Souness dross.

No need for that like. Wenger and Mourinho have made more of an impression on the English game than Big Sam I'm afraid.

Yeah I know look at Spain, a Dutchee in charge of Barca (and not the first, three in recent history) and a German in charge of Madrid (who followed on from a Brazilian, an Italian and another Dutchee). Sam is full of *****e. Next time he opens his mouth to talk someone should stick a pie in it before the words come out.
