Anyway, I'll be off to the FA Cup next weekend in what I think is the Second Qualifying Round.  The decidedly unwelcoming and unsupported (I love going there) Chalfont St Peter of the Calor Southern League Central Division host Lewes of the Ryman League Premier.

 

I'm going for a crowd of 87 and a 3-1 win for Lewes.

When we first went to France for a GB match we went by coach from Wigan, at 5pm Overnight through France with a blocked chemical toilet, and arrived in Tolouse at about 3pm the following day.

The driver was not impressed at having to stop at every service station on the way down.

We stayed one night in a Hotel Ibis, and returned the following day, straight after the match in Carcassonne (I think, 1987).

 

A local coach firm (admitidly we are closer to Dover than most) runs trips to Brugge every Friday night, travelling on a night ferry, getting breakfast somewhere in Belgium, and returning home after a days shopping to arrive back in Hastings about 8am on Sunday.

Aye to be fair its the 8 hours each way it took us from Wigan to Dover thats the killer, an 1hr 40 on the ferry and the quick hop from Calais to Bruge was all very civilised and easily in day trip territory.

Lewes will probably bring about half of that.  CSP got around 80 per game in the Spartan South Midlands and now they've been promoted they still get around 80 per game.  They got around 80 for their last Cup match against the Met Police.

Guernsey are properly moneyed aren't they?  Moving through the ranks in quite a scary way.

Paolo Di Canio has been sacked by Sunderland.

Well, he had thirteen games to get it right...


As a Swindon Town fan did I enjoy his time with us? Oh yes!

Would I want him back? Hell no!!!

Looking at the history of football, there was far more patience towards managers. Today, it has become a joke!

Financially it doesn't make sense. Allow Di Canio to sign 14 players. Give him a short space of time to move tings forward then sack him. Clubs like Sunderland need to realise that going down isn't the be all and end all. Charlton under Curbishley went down, kept the faith and achieved top 10 consistently after getting promoted a second time. They get parachute payments too if they go down. Look at Wolves. Ridiculous.

Sunderland employed just eight managers from 1888 to 1972, and then onwards to 2013 it came to 28.

I think they sacked him because he was and is a complete and utter c##t!

They knew what they were getting when they signed him. It's Di Canio FFS. Who's next then? Gazza, Joey Barton, Suarez.......

It would be interesting to see a league table of which clubs have got through the most managers in the last 50 years. Soccer's not really my thing but I always get the impression that Newcastle and Sunderland seem to get through managers at a rate of knots. I would guess Ferguson must be the longest serving premiership manager in recent times.

Queens Park Rangers have gone through quite a few managers over recent years.

West Ham have only had 14 managers, and the first one lasted for 30 years.  He did however commit suicide within months of his sacking due in part to rumours he was syphoning off funds from the club and the fact he was a massive alcoholic, but that was fine in the good old days, you'd probably not get away with it in these modern times.

Brian Clough was Nottingham Forest's 8th manager.

Since he left in 1993, they have had 14!

See the Jersey & Guernsey Rugby Union Clubs also, then wonder how?
