    Strange that Wednesday are so far Down the table! They´ve got Kirkland in goal & have Fryatt & Connor Wickham and even got Joe Mattock on the bench!

    Watching the football League show at the weekend, I was struck by how many ex players are managers

    Venus, Dickov, Grayson, Robins, Powell, Rowett

    Maybe it's because we never paid them much :)

    Billy Davies too.
    And quite a few ex City players work in the media. TV and Radio are full of them. Percentage wise I would imagine we have one of the highest for ex players for the size of Club. Liverpool and Arsenal have quite a few as well but when you think of Lineker Savage Claridge Keown Dublin Bright Cottee Colleymore and even Manish worked for Radio Leicester.

    Aaah, I didn't know that, or maybe I did and forgot it a long time ago

    A few assistant managers too...Steve Thompson, Rob Kelly, Steve Agnew, Kevin Russell

    And goalkeeping coaches: Kevin Poole, Tim Flowers, Ian Walker (somewhere in China!)

    Probably more...oh Roberto Mancini of course

    Oh Gary Mills is Gateshead's manager
