It had to be seen to be believed. How on earth has he blamed not leaving the EU yet on the new handball rule :laugh: I think he’s safely ruled himself out of any jobs in the near future. 

it was in 'the daily wail' and 'daily excess'. WTF:

This is how the country has ended up in the mess we find ourselves in.

People believing that Brexit will get rid of any rule they disagree with, regardless of who set them.

 

The Geneva Conventions were written in Switzerland. Does that mean if we leave the EU we can start committing war crimes?

if there'd been a choice on the day between a colouring book or a ballot paper the result may well have been different.

I think it was just a botched metaphor, referring to FIFA & UEFA running the English game 

 

Except the FA has veto powers, and in this case all 4 of the English FA votes were in favour of the rule change.

It only required 2 FA votes to stop it. So even if the English FA was split 50/50 for/against it, then it wouldn't have been made into a law.

But yeah, foreigners are running it...

You mean 37% isn't everyone?

 

This will come as news to a lot of people.

Actually it was 52% of all those who could be bothered to vote!!

good entertainment as a pundit, best to stay there. Just like Neville, Carra, Shearer, Souness and certainly Murphy. Stick to pundits as would not go well as a manager. Di Canio is an italian pundit on sky Italia too. There are quite a few they roll out as experts who would be useless as a manager, Danny mills is one who would scare me if ever linked to our job.

Holloway is harmless enough but wouldn't want him as manager, had he said everything other than the handball law is EU made he'd have been right though.

 

Clearly he can wind the opposition up which is something Warnock etc have thrived on.

Classic Ollie.

 

The tick twerp did get crap Blackpool and crap Crystal Palace promoted to the Premiership mind.

 

Says it was achieved by getting his players to eat three shredded wheat a day and doing a victory dance before kick off each match.

 

If you don't believe me you should start an anti Holloway thread even though he isn't on the shortlist yet.

 

I must be the only one who gets Holloway's sense of humour.

I doubt you have to be a scholar to follow football and know the EU don't determine the rules of football world wide.

When you get back to school ask the English teacher about satire

He said “we all” 

 

not..”leave won by a majority” 

 

I was responding to the assumption that “we all” voted to leave. Because we clearly didn’t “all vote” to leave.

Love oli don't know if I would want him here. He is a promotion expert though. Its nice to see a normal view on brexit and not some screeching londoner.

Ian Holloway is quoted this morning as saying that the new hand ball rule is the fault of the EU and Brexit will get rid of it. Unless he was joking (and the report didn't suggest it) may I, as a very  occasional poster, suggest he is too thick to be our manager. I want somebody for SWFC who has a modicum of intelligence.

If this is about him talking on talksport yesterday i heard it.

He has been mis-quoted.

He said 'we are trying to take control of our country with Brexit and we can't even control our own football'

He was refering to fifa and uefa rule changes that negatively affect the English game (particularly at lower league level)

 

Not a comparison i would make, but nothing to get hung about

 

Either it was this quote you are refering to, or he is banging on about Brexit a lot!

My main reason for not wanting Ollie to be our manager, as nothing to do with his personal views or anything he's said. I just think he's past it, his best days are long gone. He's done nothing of note for several years. He would have been ideal a few years ago to be fair but wouldn't consider has been's like him and would much prefer a forward thinking on the rise appointment like Bully would be.
